Happy November and Happy Voting Day....don't forget to vote!!! It's your one chance to voice your opinion, whether your vote wins or loses, at least you can say, you had a voice.
I'm not sure if any of you saw me last night on our Facebook Live cast, but if you did not...I hit the Christmas Holiday season with our fabrics, patterns, and creative ideas. Check out our Facebook Live video HERE if you are interested in seeing our variety of Christmas items!

Cost to join this sew-in is $40, and each month that you show up, you get a store gift card for $10. If you show up all 4 months, you get your money back. The gift card can be used for supplies you will need for the next month's pillow or anything else you want or need in the store.

Not comfortable coming into the store yet, I get it! We will have a Zoom group also, on the same dates, so you can be in on all the conversations in the classroom. If you join through Zoom, you will still receive a $10 store gift card for each session you join, and this card number can be used on our website....and to help you even more, I can email you the gift card number, so you don't even have to come in the store if you don't want...it's all virtual!

And don't forget....we have to have show and tell each month!
I know this is a lot of information and a lot of "click HERE's", so email me or call the store, if you have any questions. I think this will be fun and I'm looking forward to getting started! I've always wanted to have a bench pillow....and now by the time spring get's here, I'll have 4!

Upcoming Classes and Events in November
***In November, when you come to a class or an event in the store, you will receive a gift card! My way of saying THANK YOU for showing up and supporting our teachers, events, and classes!***
***PLEASE NOTE if you are new to a class or event, you MUST pre-register for all classes and events! Now with our classroom opening up, our social distancing space in the classroom, and people getting out more, you must pre-register for any class or event at Creekside Quilting. Anyone arriving without having registered may possibly need to leave, unless there is ample room in the classroom. This is for your safety as well as ours and we appreciate your understanding of this situation. Thank you!
***PLEASE NOTE before you come to class, make sure your sewing machine is in good working condition and has all the necessary supplies you will need to run the sewing machine. A good understanding of how to use your sewing machine is a must. Sewing classes require a basic sewing kit and quilting tools.
