I’ll be 50 years old in August. How the heck did that happen??? I remember when I thought 50 was OLD, but now I’m thinking “50 can’t be old ’cause I’ll soon be 50 and I’M NOT OLD!!!!!” Yeah, right – I feel every one of my almost-50 years and then some.
Milestone birthdays have never bothered me. I never wanted to be 29 over and over again, and 40 was rather liberating to me in a lot of ways. But 50! I’m having a real struggle accepting that I’m about to hit the BIG 5-0! So I’ve decided that rather than hide my head under the covers and give in to the dread, I’ll just shout it from the rooftops and make the whole summer one big party!
That’s why last weekend I announced our “50 & Fabulous Sale-abration” at SHQC (sorry, I’m a little behind with this post. What is it they say “The mind is the first thing to go!”) Anyway, it’s 50 days until my birthday (AND the shop’s birthday, too!) so I’m putting up weekly specials for you to help get me in the mood to celebrate!
We have a new weekly special beginning tomorrow, 7/18, which will be valid through July 24. Just in case you didn’t get my email newsletter, here’s what next week holds:
Take 30% off any one cut of fabric, 3 yards or larger (sale fabric is excluded). This includes all of our new fabrics, including Christmas!!! Need borders or backing for a quilt? Now is the time to get a great deal! If you order online, we’ll apply the discount when we process your order for shipping.
I’ve pulled over 50 bolts of Batiks (the pictures give you an idea of what is included, but don’t show all of them!), including several 108″ wide Batiks for this week’s special, too.
Buy a minimum 3 yard cut, and take 40% off
Finish the bolt, and take 50% off
The Batik Special is in-store only, unless you want us to make a selection for you. These aren’t on the website, but you can email me or call the shop to place an order and we’ll be happy to ship it to you.
Win a “SWEET TREAT” for a Year!
Our BIG GIVEAWAY will be a chance to win 20% off all your fabric purchases at Sweet Home Quilt Co. for one full year! S-W-E-E-T!!! Earn one chance with every $50 purchase made before the drawing on August 29th. Both in-store and online purchases are eligible; sub-total must be $50 before applicable taxes and/or shipping charges.
Bring in five individual Back-to-School supplies and earn a second chance to win! School will be starting again soon, and we know there will be many, many children whose families cannot afford school supplies. Sweet Home Quilt Co. will match all the supplies we collect and donate them to a local charity to help out. Please be as generous as you can!
Our 50 & Fabulous Sale-abration will end with our now infamous Midnight Madness Sale on August 28 and a huge Birthday Bash party August 29 so be sure to mark those dates on your calendar now. We’ll celebrate not only my birthday, but the shop’s 4th birthday as well, with great savings and great prizes, too. If you’re not signed up for my email newsletter, sign up here so you don’t miss a thing. I’ll send an email every Friday with the new weekly special and I’ve got some great deals planned for you.
After the fun we’ve had this week, I’m beginning to think turning 50 might not be so bad after all – I’m having a blast! Come celebrate with me!
