Handi Quilter News!
John and I have returned from our week long Retailers Training at the Handi Quilter facilities just north of Salt Lake City and are fully prepared to sell and service all Handi Quilter has to offer. Handi Quilter is extending its special pricing on the 18" Avante and the 24" Fusion through the end of the month as well as on the Amara as it makes its debut! Come in and let us tell you all about it!

Our Amara, Handi Quilter's newest 20" long arm machine, should be arriving this month! It's a pretty talented machine with a laser light for your needle, more lighting for your machine throat, adjustable handlebars and the dual set-up capabilities of the Studio Two table, just to mention a few bells and whistles! 

Now's the time to buy! Make your Christmas dreams come true! Or at least your quilting dreams ;-)

Don't forget that Fridays are our Sewing Bee Days - come in and join the fun! Bring a project you are working on, meet new friends and get some quilting done! 10am - 4pm.

The Blue Hen will be closed Saturday, December 23rd - Tuesday, December 26 so that we all can enjoy the holidays with our families. 

Thanks so much for subscribing to our newsletter! Hope to see you soon!
