September-October 2012 Newsletter
Dear Sisters in Thread,
This newsletter brings major changes to our method of getting the information out to you! We are changing the way we email our newsletter to better serve you. Please, if you have not already done so, go to our website www.sewtogetheronline.com and register there to receive our newsletter. This will make it easier to keep our email list current and the information we send to you timelier! We will no longer be using the outdated system that we have used for many years, so don’t delay! There are exciting things happening here that you won’t want to miss!
Right now we are setting up for our Stitchery Trunk Show from Crabapple Hill and other great designers. We have so many samples filling the store, you will just have to come and see! This display will be up through September 15, so we hope to see you very soon!
We are so excited to be revamping our Yarn Department at the shop! All of September all our in-stock yarn will be 30% off! We have a goal to have all USA made yarns in our shop by the first of the year. So there are some great bargains to be had while we are reaching that goal!
It is also that time of year to attend our Holiday Hop. “Favorite Holiday Memories” will be Friday and Saturday November 16 & 17 from 9 am to 7 pm both days. Passports to all 7 shops are only $10 each and include a pin. You will receive free patterns from each store and with the donation of a canned good at each place you will also receive free fabric and another pattern. All canned goods go to our local food pantries and is a great way to give back to our communities. You will also have the chance to win prizes at every shop. There are busses scheduled from all shops (ours is on Saturday) and you can see details at www.michiganstashdash.com. Passports are available beginning Sept. 15.
We are having a “3-B’s” sale in September…buy your Backing, Batting and Binding for any quilt together and get 25% off the Bundle! It is a great way to save. (So does that make it a 4-B’s sale??) In October we are offering 20% off any in-stock kit. That’s a lot of quick and beautiful kits for gift-giving!
So September starts the beginning of that fall feeling and the need to cuddle into a new quilt or afghan! We have classes and clubs to spark your interest and maybe become a lifelong love. If you want to learn to quilt or knit we have low-stress classes so you can learn. Do you want to make a new bag that all your friends will drool over? Yup, we have a class for that too! Want to hone your embroidery skills or learn some new stitches? You can do it here. We have a great relaxing atmosphere to learn and even make a friend or two. Come in and see why we have a great reputation for being one of the friendliest stores around.

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
We make house calls to your local guild meetings with trunk shows, classes and demonstrations! Call us to schedule a visit.
We also clean and adjust your old domestic sewing machines for a very reasonable price. There is no charge if we can’t fix your problem, either!
We are a Handi Quilter authorized dealer.
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
