Creekside Quilting Newsletter 11/27/2018
Thanks to everyone who came out for our Holiday Sale! It was lovely to see each of you and listen to some of your quilting stories! Sometimes, I'm not sure what to say, but nevertheless, I love hearing your stories and about your projects! Did everyone eat enough calories to sustain them to the first of the year? I know I did, and chances are, I may have eaten your calories too!
I hope each of you had a lovely holiday weekend and was surrounded by family and friends!
What's New at Creekside Quilting?
It was a quiet week at Creekside Quilting, as far as new items go. We are getting ready for inventory, next Monday, December 3rd, and I held off on orders for the end of November. We will be closed on December 3rd (updating website right now!) due to our inventory.
"If kisses were snowflakes, I'd send you a blizzard" pillow is our December Kimberbell Embroidery Club project.

Some of the most exciting news I have to share is that we have hired a Certified Pfaff technician to clean and repair Pfaff sewing machines! His name is Stevan Rounds out of Waukee. He will start the week of December 10th...so start bringing your machines in! His prices are as follows:
Clean, oil, and adjustments are $75.
Simple fixes, such as fixing a needle threader or swap out parts are $10 for about 15 minutes of work.
Then bench work, that is more extensive starts at $25.
Although all payments will go directly through Stevan and not through Creekside Quilting, machines will stay at Creekside to be worked on.
