August 2017 MSQCo News
I'm not sure where July went but it vanished right before my very eyes! We have welcomed many visitors to our store, have been on the road, rowed a little ourselves and are gearing up for more fun along the way! We are now into the middle of August and starting to gather our ducks in a row for the Fall. We have been open on Sundays this summer and are considering having Sunday hours for the fall also but I need to hear from YOU! If you are one who would benefit from having us be open on a Sunday- please email us at email@example.com and let us know.
We have so many new fabrics, notions and kits coming that my head is spinning! It certainly didn't help that Bob, my fabric rep, was just here and he brings a VAN FULL of fabric samples. The girls and I are full of excitement for the fun fabrics, kits and minkee coming this fall! Please see below for what's happening for currently.
You will not want to miss out on seeing the FALL LINEUP of classes and events. We will be having our BACK-to-SCHOOL event on Sept 8-9. Stop in on those days and receive a special discount when you sign up for classes.

Main Street Quilting Company has a WINNER!!! I get to brag on Barbara Smith for a bit because she is a graduate of the Fall 2016 MSQCo Beginning Quilting class. Barbara completed rows from eight Montana stores and used a variety of quilting techniques. Well done, Barbara!
