November 2022
Of all the years that I have written emails to you, this is the most difficult one I have ever had to write.
It is time for me to retire!  Effective Tuesday, November 8th, 2022 we will begin marking items down in the shop towards this goal.

Before we get into the logistics of my plan, let me start out by saying I cannot find enough words to convey my gratitude to you as my customers for the past 18 years we have served this community. Most importantly, that debt of gratitude extends to my employees, who have been my rocks!  The shop would not be what it is today without them.

To squelch any rumors, we have not fallen on hard times financially, I am not dying of a dastardly disease, (as far as I know), and we have not lost our lease.  It is just time for me to go down a different path in life.  I hope that all of you will wish me well and understand!

To those of you who have become “friends of the shop”, over the years, I apologize in advance for your learning of this decision via email.  Please understand due to the nature of this announcement the information needed to stay highly confidential until publication.

Effective immediately the following will be put into place:
We will no longer be awarding Reward Gift Certificates.  All Reward Gift Certificates need to be used by 12/31/22.
We will no longer be selling Gift Certificates.  All outstanding Gift Certificates need to be redeemed as soon as possible.
We will no longer be placing custom orders.
We will no longer be scheduling rental time on the longarms, or teaching lessons on the longarms.
We will no longer be cutting fat quarters.

The minimum cut we will sell will be ½ yard. 

I am not a fan of progressive sales, ie, where we would try to lure you in with the words “up to 75%off”, only to have you visit and find things are really 15% off.

So here is what we are going to do!  Effective 11/8/22 most regularly priced products in the store will be 20% off, sale items will not be included. If you are ordering online your 20% off will be adjusted after we fill your order.  We CANNOT guarantee you will receive the yardage you order online as in store sales will be first come first served.  We will try our absolute best to fulfill the online orders as soon as we get them, however, foot traffic in the shop will come first.  Additionally, we will NOT be able to call and confirm the amount you want for an online fabric if we have less. We will ship what we have to you minus the discount. To be honest if you are within driving distance visiting the shop would be best.

Sewing and quilting machines will be individually priced.

All sales will be final with no returns, refunds, or exchanges allowed.

Please understand we may not be able to answer the phone during this time.  You can leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please forward this email to any quilting or sewing friends you know that may want to take advantage of this sale.

For now, we will continue to service Baby Lock, Handi Quilter, and Pfaff machines.  After we close, we have referrals for you as listed below:

Baby Lock: Sew Vac Direct in Bryan
Handi Quilter: The Quilting Post in Bellville
Pfaff:  Austin Sewing in Round Rock or Fabrics Etcetera in Webster

Maegan will continue to quilt for you out of her own location!  Please be aware she does not want to purchase or run Lone Star Quiltworks.

If you retreat with me, our January and February retreats will still take place.

Furniture and fixtures will be for sale in the shop to be picked up at final close of business. 

If you know of anyone who would be interested in purchasing the business, please have them contact me via email at   Serious inquiries only!
