Please reply to this email with
your requested time and we will check availability and confirm by email.
We know Memorial Day weekend is
sort of a toss-up most years, and this one seems even
weirder. Maybe what you need is a trip to Charlotte's!
We are trying to limit the number
of people in the store at one time. While we normally love meeting
spouses and other members of your support team, we are asking that only
the shoppers be in the store for now.
We are asking that the customers
So you know, the staff will not be
wearing masks 100% of the time. Honestly, it is very
difficult to do what we do wearing masks.
Check out all of our quilt
kits! Only 2 remain of this summer quilt kit! Glorious Geese!
we will have a MEMORIAL weekend SALE LIVE on FACEBOOK.
PM, FRIDAY, Lots of FABRIC & other STUFF
Again, we learn each time we do
this. You never know who is going to have the speedy
connection. This past week it was a pre-paid T-Mobile phone
located in the eastern US! She told us she was using data,
not wifi. Go figure!
This week we will have multiples of
fabrics when we can, and hope you can join in the fun and the

new stuff like this 60" extra wide Rock Pool COTTON TOWELING!
Great stuff. Never saw this before. Makes great

Things may continue to
change. Stay tuned. We are taking all the
common sense precautions! ;)
We are concerned for all our well
beings, and continue to urge you to be careful out there!
Monday June 1
we plan to re-open
with limited hours
Monday - Friday 10 to
5 doors open
Saturday 10 - 4 doors
we start to inch our way ahead to the "new normal", lots of questions
One of the questions on my mind concerns the supply chain.
Why are there still no paper towels at our grocery store, yet shelves
full of toilet paper? Really, someone decided "0" towels were
to be made? hmmmm.
I just read an interesting article explaining why penne and linguine are still
missing from grocery stores. Click here if you want to read.
Barilla is actually a US manufacturer (not Italian), and there is much
more to getting that simple pasta to the shelf than I thought.
Yet we still have "pasta", even on
SALE! Click here.
Sooooo, how lucky are we to have an
abundance of product here on Charlotte's Sew Natural's shelves, and
have the fabric industry as booming as it is?!
Yes, we've been out of elastic, but we got 2 rolls in yesterday. Yay!
We are still waiting on non-woven interfacing, used inside some
masks. Deadlines have come and gone for that, but I do know
that it will eventually come back, which is good.
We continue to make plans for different EVENTS, including QUILTERS TREK and our October QUILT SHOP HOP.
They may be a bit different, but hopefully, not cancelled.
And that is the word of the day - HOPEFUL. Yes, we are all
hopeful that our lives will get back to normal.
I just don't want to let my natural optimism take over, and am
determined to remain careful and cautious. So the store will open to
more "normal walk-in" traffic on JUNE 1ST. The hours are
shortened for now. 10 to 5 and Saturdays 10 to 4.
Hope everyone has a fun & safe Memorial Day weekend.
I will be remembering my Mom and other family members who created my
solid foundation, that allows me to stay flexible without crumbling!
We will be closed Memorial Day
spending time with family. You can still order on-line, email
leave messages on the answering machine. We'll be in bright
Tuesday May 26. ;)
forward to when we can actually see you again! With great
appreciation for your continuing support.
