Second Saturday - March Update
We understand that some of you may be leary of attending the Second Saturday Sampler sessions at Quilts Plus due to the Coronavirus outbreak, so we have created an alternate plan for you for March 2020.
We will still be here for both sessions! But if you don't wish to attend, email us a picture of you with your finished block(s) by 11:30am tomorrow (3/14) at email@example.com. Once we receive your email, we will send you a coupon code to order the March block(s) for just $6.00 each online at www.quiltsplus.com. That amount is half price for the kit plus postage and sales tax!
You can also order any additional fat eighths, or other items from our website, that you would like to have, along with the blocks. We will post the pictures for the blocks on our website as soon as possible after the second session ends tomorrow.
We hope that you will attend, but please, do what you think is best for your health and welfare!
Second Saturday 2020 - Details
For those of you that know and love our Second Saturday program, thank you for your patronage and participation! We love your visits, your show-and-tell, and your smiles!
Second Saturday has been a staple of Quilts Plus for years. We were recently asked by one of our newer shoppers what Second Saturday was all about, and while we were happy to share with her additional details, we wondered just how many of you were missing some or all of the information about Second Saturday! So, here goes... all the details for 2020!
During the first month of the program (January), purchase a block kit for just $8. Assemble the block (the pattern is included in the kit) and bring it to show the following month to get the next block kit for free! At the end of the program, you'll have enough completed blocks to assemble a small quilt. Of course, you can add borders and additional blocks to increase the size of the quilt if you choose to do so, but this is great motivation to get a small quilt completed for minimal cost!
Now, some of the fun comes when you purchase more than one kit - this year we have two series to choose from – Tropical Flavor and Artic Feelings (see below!). Though you can only get one free kit per month, some quilters choose to make more than one quilt series. Another fun adjustment to the basic plan is making additional blocks each month that coordinate with the series of your choice. This will help to make sure you have a larger quilt when the program is complete.
Each Second Saturday, when you bring in the previous month’s completed block, you'll be given your free block and a raffle ticket. For any 'extra' blocks you bring in, you get an additional raffle ticket! At the end of each Second Saturday session, we draw for fun prizes! And, while you're here we have a great show-and-tell, so you get to see new shop samples and kits, as well as completed quilts from your quilting friends!
We have 2 sessions every 2nd Saturday of each month - one that starts at 9am and one that starts at 10:30am. Space is limited in the shop, so please keep that in mind when you choose your time.
Reminder: There may be a time when you forget your completed block, don't get it finished or have to miss a Saturday session. Just come to the shop anytime during that month to purchase the next kit and get back on track. Also, blocks will not be available before the month's meeting, and friends cannot pick up free blocks for you.
We look forward to seeing you there! We can't wait!
