Creekside Quilting Newsletter 11/10/2020
No matter which way you swing, this part is over and we can now answer our phones and watch TV...peacefully. It also means, there are only 7 more weeks of 2020 and then we can say good-bye to 2020! Reflecting on 2020, there has been plenty of heartache, pain, and suffering, but there has also been strength, courage and creativity that has come out of our challenges.What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

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.
