Creekside Quilting Newsletter 01/18/2022

  2022 has started off with a bang for us!  First the furnace going out for a week during some very cold below zero days.  I needed to make the executive decision to close early some days, due to staff working in a store at 55 degrees...and I really appreciated my staff for still coming to work and customers still coming in the store!  Space heaters helped keep the temps above 50, and I was thankful for that!  Thank you for bearing with us and supporting us in store and online through that challenge!

Then, we had dangerous weather, and although I closed the store probably too early on Friday, it was a decision that was made for the safety of my staff.  Once again, thank you to everyone and your patience and understanding.

Now, we are facing a severe increase in Covid cases and the beginning of the flu season. LOL!  I don't know what this is going to bring or look like for us, but I do know I have a wonderful staff that will do whatever they can for our fantastic customers!

With all of this being said, IF we are needing to close early due to weather or unforeseen events, we will notify customers through our website, an email, our Facebook page, and through our phone message.  Please, if you are unsure or traveling a distance, check our website, check your emails, check the Facebook page, or give us a call to verify our status.  I can't believe I'm needing to write this, but it's best to be proactive with a plan, than regretful without a plan.

With Covid ramping up again, please take advantage of our curbside pickup service.  You can order most items through our store website, through our Creekside Quilting app, or give us a call.  We will love to help you anyway we can in getting your order processed to meet your comfort level.

We too, are beginning to face the challenges of the season, whether it be illness, an unforeseen event, or weather.  I thank you for your understanding and support during this season of uncertainty!
