The Block of the Month Meeting will be an evening gathering held on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6pm. During these meetings, you’ll be given a brief overview of the month’s block and any special instructions or tips. We love show and tell and it’s a great time to catch up and learn from fellow quilters. As we have done in the past and at our other locations each month will have a signature adult beverage such as the Piecers Piña Colada, of course as always, we will have water, coffee, and tea as well as a light snack. Our block of the month quilt programs begin in January and run for 6-12 months depending on the program you select. At the end of each program you will be able to spend your Barn Bucks (explanation below) and show off your new work of art. Attendance is not required but you will be missed, we look forward to seeing you there!
What Happens at The Barn stays at The Barn! Ok maybe not but we at least promise not to tell your husband how much you spent on fabric this month! So why attend the meetings?
The deadline for our 2018 program will be here sooner than you know, make sure to sign up by December 20th ! Via phone or in store! If you sign up on Small Business Saturday (November 25th) receive $10 Barn Bucks to spend on anything in our store or one of our sister stores!
Block of the Month Policy (Our lawyers make us say this stuff! Bummer!)
· It is the agreement between you and the store that when you register for the program you are registering for the entire program and you agree to participate for the duration of the program.
· We require a credit card to be kept on file and the program is automatically charged to your card on the 1st of each month that the program is active. We understand your concern for security so we’ve gone old school! Your information will be written on a form that is stored in our safe. It is never accessed by anyone accept our owners and manager for the purpose of completing the transaction related to your program. We understand that you may need to update your card on file during the program as cards expire or may get replaced, please contact us as soon as possible if you need to update your card.
· All programs can be picked up in store at the social hour or after the social hour during normal business hours. If you would like us to ship your program it will be a $3.99 charge per month. Program will be shipped the Friday following the social hour.
· We’re human and can make mistakes if you feel you’re missing a component of your program or something was amiss don’t hesitate to contact us. However, we cannot be responsible for an issue if you wait beyond a month to notify us.
Our block of the months are designed for beginners (Heartland Heritage) or they are skill building (Portage Lake). We encourage you to participate and ask lots of questions, we want everyone to feel included! If at any point you feel you need a little more instruction don’t hesitate to schedule a private lesson ($15/hour for program participants only) or drop in for open sew ($10 all day) if you’d just feel more comfortable having someone close by for a quick question. Our goal is always to make the community of sewist bigger. #beginnerswelcome!
