What a Fun Day!

Last Tuesday with Barbara Moore was such a fun day. The twenty of us who visited with her that day learned quite a lot about our machines and the feet and accessories that we can get for our Husqvarna Viking machines. Oh, the techniques that you can employ in your sewing projects. How about that sheered or ruched piping /cording/welting for home dec items? Easy with the proper tools! Next time we have one of these daylong programs I hope you can attend. It is fun!

Many of you remember Robbie Benjamin from when she worked at Heirlooms & Comforts. We want to offer her our collective sympathy at the death of her mother who lived a beautiful life of 93 years.

H&C Feature of the Week: Clean Off the Bolt
At Heirlooms & Comforts this week we will feature our Clean Off the Bolt program. All week you can get the 25% off any regular priced fabric when you clean off the bolt. If you clear a bolt of sale priced fabric we offer you an additional 10% discount off the original price. Quite of few of the sale fabrics have the pink 50% off mark - get 'em while they last!

Recently Acquired Previously Owned Machines
In the last few weeks there have been some really nice Husqvarna Viking machines traded in for new models. That means that customers at Heirlooms and Comforts who wish to have these bargains should rush on in to the shop to see what great buys these are. A Rose, an SE and a Sapphire are ready to go. Just come by and ask us about these!

Labor Day Holiday
At Heirlooms & Comforts we will be closed on Saturday, September 4 and Monday, September 6 to enjoy the final summer holiday with our families.  We will be in the shop again at 10 AM on Tuesday, the 7th of September.  We hope you have a fun, safe holiday.

Got all the tools?

Fall season is just a short time in the future. Before you know it routines will be settled in and life will be on another pace. As I look out the window occasionally while writing this (to rest my "computer eyes", not daydream) I see that the dogwood trees have a pale tinge of color in the leaves. Before long we will be scrambling to get a ride into the foothills and mountains to see nature's color show. We have replicas of that show at Heirlooms & Comforts in our beautiful fabrics. Magazines for quilters have featured fall leaf patterns and there are books and patterns with the leaf motif. Embroiderers have all the wonderful Robison-Anton threads to choose from for stitching their versions of the coming season, not to mention the holiday motifs for fall and winter. Sew and stitch a little and pretty soon, you can have the color inside and outside your home. What better feeling than to have such surroundings. It is coming folks! Keep an eye out.

H&C Feature of the Week: Coupon
At Heirlooms & Comforts this week we feature the coupon included in our weekly email. Print it and bring it in to redeem for 20% off an in-stock notions item of your choice. That could be a ruler (basic or specialty), or scissors, or an iron, or a cutting mat, etc. What have you wished for lately in the notions area?

Classes for Fall
Remember that at Heirlooms & Comforts we have begun to take registration (sign-up and payment) for fall class offerings. Some of the classes have begun to get quite a number of registrants and we don't want you to miss the classes that you want. So, look on the web site for the list (with photos) and choose what you want to take. Then contact us with tuition payment to hold your place. Also remember that supplies listed by the instructor are always at a 10% savings when purchased at H&C. You can print out the list of classes with the photos or you can print the calendar format so that you have a reminder for the dates and time of the class you choose.

Find Paradise at Heirlooms & Comforts...
The Art Gallery Fabrics group called "Paradise" has arrived at Heirlooms & Comforts. This is fresh and gorgeous. The graphic patterns are intriguing and the florals are fresh! The colorway is modern and wonderful. This is suitable for all kinds of projects from a quilt to home d├ęcor items to clothing for kids to handbags. You just have to see it to know what you want to do with it. It makes you smile and feel content.

Remember that Barbara Moore is going to be here on Tuesday to deliver her great program!
