Counting Our Blessings at Sew Together

November 2014

Dear Sisters in Thread,

Well here it is the month before Christmas – but before the panic sets in, let us talk about all the things we can be thankful for. I know Gina and I feel thankful every day we open the shop and have our friends, old and new, come through our door. We are also thankful for the new computer that makes it possible to finally get the November newsletter to you just a little late! And speaking of Thanksgiving, we will be closed both Thursday Nov. 27 and Friday Nov. 28 to be with our families. We will be open on Saturday Nov. 29 and there will be great demos at noon, 1:30 and 3:00 pm and don’t forget we have some great samples for sale that would make wonderful Christmas gifts!

We are bringing back a very popular sale this month: our Hunters’ Widows Sale!!! On Friday Nov. 14 and Saturday Nov. 15 our whole store will be on sale! We are offering 25% off all regular priced fabric, books and notions! Please don’t miss it! (Of course, special orders, Handi Quilter items and items on commission or already discounted are exceptions to the sale.)

We have some great one-day classes planned this month that would make wonderful gifts. Mary is teaching a beautiful Clothes Hanger Cover that has a secret pocket for jewelry storage and I am teaching a Curvy Poinsettia Table Runner that would look stunning on any holiday table. Gina and I are also busy planning our annual Christmas Tea (Dec. 7) where we will have lots of stocking stuffing ideas and more.

We also want to remind all of our Handi Quilter people that the updates are available for the Avante and Sweet Sixteen (which includes the long-awaited low bobbin alarm among other things!). Call us for details and an appointment.

We want to remind you to go to to sign up for our newsletter. It is easy to do and when you submit your email you will receive a free pattern! We would also like to encourage you to “Like” us on Facebook because we post quick pictures and updates there for your information.


We are authorized Handi Quilter dealers and can offer you a great quilting experience with these American-made, high-quality quilting machines! Please call us for a test drive on the HQ18 Avante or the HQ16 Sit Down models in our store! We offer sales and authorized repairs on Handi Quilters – even if you didn’t buy your machine from us.

Class Policy: We offer all students of paid classes a 15% discount on all regular priced merchandise. You must register for classes early since we must notify the teacher with the number of registered students. Please don’t assume we know you are coming. Classes without the minimum number of students will be cancelled. If we have to cancel a class your registration is fully refundable. There is no refund if you cancel a class with less than a week’s notice unless there are special circumstances. In-store credit will be given under special circumstances, but Gina or Sue must personally Okay this. Call us at (586)727-1555.

Hours: Tues.-Thurs. 10-5, Friday 10-7, Sat. 10-4. Closed Sundays and Mondays

Thank you and God bless all of you for your continued friendship and support! It means so much to us!   Gina and Sue, the Sew Together women
