November 25th 2020
Thanksgiving is here! We at Golden State Quilting are thankful for so many things. We are thankful first and foremost for the health of our families, staff and customers. Our hearts are full from your kindness and continued support. We are thankful for and encouraged by the new customers who have pulled their sewing machines out of the mothballs and started making masks and surgical caps with wild enthusiasm! (And we hope that they keep sewing and give quilting a try!)
When we were forced to temporarily close our doors on March 17th, we chose to swim (rather than sink) by fleshing out our website and offering curbside pickup and shipping services. It enabled us to participate virtually in Shop Hops and PIQF. These services have become a permanent key part of our business, so please check them out!
December 1st marks our 6th anniversary as owners of Golden State Quilting!!!
Even though we can't throw the celebration bash we would like, we are going to declare our own Black Friday and Anniversary Celebration November 27th through December 2nd in store as well as on our website. To enjoy the holiday and take a short break, the shop will be closed Thursday & Friday, November 26th & 27th. We will be open Saturday,
closed Sunday, reopening on Monday Nov. 30th.
All “In stock” pre-cuts, fabric on the bolt (1 yard minimum), patterns, books will be 20% off. Mention or use the code "HAPPY6TH" at check out for the celebration savings. For your convenience, all online purchases can be held for curbside pick-up or shipped, whatever you choose. Gift certificates ARE NOT included in the sale.
Although we couldn’t travel to Quilt Market, our sales reps have more than made up for that lost opportunity and have shown us many new and exciting product lines. We have restocked the basics that have been in very high demand and new fabrics are arriving daily.
If there is one thing we know about Quilters, they exhibit generosity and overcome all of this uncertainty by MAKING QUILTS! We have received dozens of quilts for the CZU fire victims from both local individuals and guilds, and from donors as far away as San Diego, New Mexico and Alaska!
Our queue for long-arm services has never been this healthy and we have completed a record number of quilts since the shelter in place orders began. Regrettably, we can no longer guarantee Christmas delivery for quilts we received after November 15th, as our current backlog won’t allow us to meet the holiday deadline.
We had hoped to extend our store hours but given the latest change in Santa Clara County Covid-19 guidelines, we will keep our reduced hours from 10-3 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and limit the number of customers in the store to a maximum of six at a time (30 min. limit when others are waiting). Classes will remain on hold as well, through the first of the New Year.
Samples for SALE.
Are you short on gifts… don’t have quilt finished for that special friend or relative… Well ask about our samples for sale as gifts. Available samples will be displayed on the website for you to purchase.
More information we’ll be coming in the next few days as the web page get’s filled in and pictures are posted. STAY TUNED!
We hope you stay safe and healthy. Be Thankful for all you have.
We are very thankful we have YOU!
Happy Thanksgiving and love,
Buff & Sonja
