There’s a New Deal Every Day!
We hope that your month began with a thankful heart as you prepare for a beautiful holiday season full of family, friends, fun and creativity!
Saturday, December 7, 2019, begins our 12 Days of Stuff My Stocking at Yadkin Valley Quilts. This is a great way to purchase items for your favorite quilter (or quilter-in-training), or share the daily special with your loved ones as a “hint” that it is something you would like to have in your personal stocking or under your tree!
Here’s how it works! Each morning for 12 days (excluding Sundays and Wednesdays when we are closed), you will receive an email with the day’s Stuff My Stocking Special! Daily specials will also be advertised through our Facebook and Instagram accounts, so connect with us on those platforms, too, if you are not already following us.
Each Day’s Specials are only available in shop during regular business hours (M-Tu-Th-Fri 10-5; Sat 10-3). If you are unable to stop in that day, simply call us (336-258-8383) and let us know that you would like to purchase the daily Stuff My Stocking Special. We will process your order and hold your item for pick up. Shipping is also available.
Some of our manufacturers have very strict advertising policies to protect their brick and mortar retailers (like YVQ). Therefore, there are some items that we may only be able to share with you electronically what items are part of the daily special – you will need to call or stop in to get the pricing details.
We are excited to offer some of our favorite must-have items for you this holiday season! Each item/bundle has been carefully selected and has received the Curious George Stamp of Approval! We look forward to seeing you in the coming days and helping to make your Christmas gifting (or gift opening!) a joyous time!
New Block of the Month!
Mrs. Miller’s Apprentice
2019–2020 Block of the Month
3rd Saturdays of Each Month ● Starts May 18, 2019
by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts, featuring Marcus Fabrics®
Journey to the mid-19th century and read Mrs. Miller’s diary, as she tells the story of meeting young Ellie who just moved into the neighboring farm with her widower father. When Ellie shows interest in learning to piece quilt blocks, Mrs. Miller takes Ellie under her wing, and not only teaches her to piece, but helps her learn many other housekeeping skills she will need to know.
Every month, you’ll join them in creating a beautiful variety of sampler blocks and read diary entries telling the story of their growing friendship.
Indigo blue and light quilts were so very popular in the 19th century and are still a classic today! The quilt features several gorgeous Indigo blue prints, as well as many other shades of blue, and a blend of lovely light prints that make the sampler blocks sparkle! It’s sure to be a treasured quilt in your collection.
This 12-month program begins Saturday, May 18, 2019 and includes monthly patterns, a 4 ½” Easy Angle Ruler, and all the fabric to complete the 77” x 89” pieced top. Directions are also included for completing the Storyteller Bonus Quilt (24” x 24”) using fabric leftover from the Mrs. Miller’s Apprentice quilt.
