Anniversary Event!

Happy 3rd (or 44th) Anniversary to Sew Easy!

 

While it’s true Sew Easy has been a part of the community for much longer than 3 years, this is the third year we’ve been here and we want to celebrate!

We’d like to invite you to our two day
Draw Your Discount Sale this
Friday and Saturday!
Once you’ve selected your beautiful fabrics, luscious yarns or handy notions you can make your draw at the counter and get anywhere from 10% to 60% off your entire regularly priced purchase*!  Since we also feel that winter is finally behind us you’ll find enticing discounts on winter fabrics and select yarns. We’ll be serving cupcakes, from Cheeky Monkey Cakes, and punch or iced tea so it’ll be a real party!

We want to make sure everyone gets to draw their discount so we’ll be open late on Friday until 7pm!

*Unfortunately this doesn’t include items already on sale, sewing machines, class fees and services like machine repair and scissor sharpening. It does include a lot of other great stuff though!
We also want to make sure you know how much we appreciate your business over the last three years, and especially how grateful we are that you take the time to read our newsletter! Thank you!
If you’re not already subscribed to our newsletter, you can join our mailing list here. We only send out one or two emails a month (basically when we have something specific to say), and if you change your mind, you can unsubscribe easily at any time.

Warm and natural Nirvana Needle Arts maple crochet hooks are as beautiful to look at as they are to work with! Not as slippery as metal but still polished and smooth for uninterrupted crochet stitches. Sizes 3.5mm to 12mm now in store!


New quilting cottons that just arrived include the quirky iBot robots, Smarty Cats (pictured above), nautical ships and some fresh florals in delicate mint and pink along with a collection of pastel blender fabrics. We’ve also got four delicate cotton lawn prints that beg to be a flouncy skirt or beautiful blouse.
