What a difference a week makes. Has it only been a week?!
Funny how many things "feel" like
they were a long, long time ago, and when the calendar is checked, it
was just a month ago! Like March's "Second Saturday". ;)
Keep reading. . . April's plan will be announced below.
Well, let's keep celebrating the 35 years you've been lovin' this store!!
The store's 35th anniversary celebration continues this weekend with a "Crazy-Simple" tip of the hat to Henry Glass designers JANET RAE NESBITT & KIM DIEHL.
Warm, comfortable colors and classic
"old fashioned" designs are the hallmarks of both these
designers. They've also withstood the tests of time, nearing
their third decade each. I still have them beat with 35 years, but hey,
KIM DIEHL FABRIC
(All 45" wide cottons, except Esther's Heirloom Shirtings)
1/2 yard minimum cuts!
A few kits are also available at 15% off, very limited supply!
ONE S1STER FABRIC

For those with a bit more traditional tastes, looking for a larger project, try CHARLOTTE'S MEDALLION, all fabrics circa 1860.
This is a large, beautiful
quilt. Rita just finished piecing & quilting our store
model. It is stunning. So sorry we can't invite you into
the store to see it!

SECOND SATURDAY UPDATE
And, if you didn't make it to 2nd Saturday in March, Block 3 Marcia, my entire presentation is available here on YouTube, along with lots of our other VIDEOS. Be sure to subscribe!
We're going to have to do April's 2nd Saturday presentation by video as well.
This SATURDAY, APRIL 11, at 9 a.m., we'll do a LIVE FACEBOOK FEED.
I'll do what I can with "show &
share", then I'll cover making Block 4, GREG. It is a "wonky"
block. You can do it!
Would love to see you Saturday from noon to 1, for the big Wonky Block Jamboree in the alley behind Charlotte's Sew Natural, in Newton.
For the first time ever, we are waving the rules on the Free Block Kits.
You do not have to show your finished block this month to get your kit for free.
We will be in the alley, behind the store, passing your kits and any other orders, through the car window, for free, for 1 hour this Saturday, noon to 1 pm.
enter the alley from BROADWAY (slowly through that dip), and head north
towards our parking lot, watching for directions. THANKS!
Maybe this BLOCK JAMBOREE will
even be spilling over into the city parking lot, across the green space,
across the alley from the back door of Charlotte's Sew Natural!
Up to you, of course, but you
could keep your social distancing, use your "outside voices" and do a
little visiting, staying safe, of course!
Maybe all wear your BEST MASKS as show & share! ;)
For the rest of the month, if you
place an order, we'll include your block kit with that order, for FREE,
and mail or hold for you to pick up.
All kits will be held with your
names, until the store is open again to customers. So, if you
want your kit before "to be determined", think of something else you
need, place an order with us by phone or on-line, and we'll include
your block kit, for free.
Thanks for your continuing support!
As always, click NEWEST ADDITIONS to see our latest on the web.
Are you keeping up with Kirsten's videos? YouTube She keeps finding more features on her phone to entertain us with, in addition to all the fabulous fabric!
Kirsten even gets the staff dancing!
When she's not dancing, we're keeping Gwen busy adding new product.
with MASK MAKING in full swing, suggested for everyone, you're keeping
all of us busy with orders, phone calls and drive-bys! ;) [I will
send out alerts when we have elastic and fusible interfacing back in
stock, for those still wishing they had those elements.]
Be sure to check out the SALE FABRICS & KITS, as we're adding to those too. A lot of great masks have been made from these shelves!
always, we really, really, hope to see you close-up and personal, soon,
but meanwhile we love your calls and comments on Charlotte's Sew
Natural Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
Stay safe, and wishing you all perfect health!
