How quickly things can change within the day!
Effective at end of business today Saturday March 21, 2020, we will suspend in store shopping. This action is being taken in compliance with Governor Pritzker’s “stay at home” order issued yesterday. Included in that announcement was the requirement for all non-essential businesses to close.
This is the plan effective through April 7.
We would love to help you in any way we can. If you need something, please call the Shop at 815-397-5160 and leave a message. We will be checking the answering machine several times each day and will get back to you on your question or request. We also plan to be in the Shop for limited hours doing some maintenance, cleaning, long arm services, plus receiving shipments. Hopefully we could mail you out something needed or provide it as a “drive through” on one of your necessary trips.
We are supportive of this aggressive order and pray that we see the slowing down the coronavirus’s spread a result. Please stay safe and well during this time. We appreciate all of you and pray for the best outcome for all of us.
NEW SHOP HOURS
Important update on the Shop’s status during this difficult time for everyone. We will remain open but are changing our hours to
Monday through Saturday 10 am to 4 pm.
We continue to take extra cleaning measures to maintain a safe environment at the Shop. All common surfaces as well as sewing supplies, machines, telephones, and registers germ-free, as much as we possibly can. These items are being cleaned multiple times per day. Sanitizer is available in the store for everyone’s use. Remember cash and credit cards are the dirtiest objects so make sure to sanitize after handling!
If you would rather not come inside, just give us a call (815-397-5160) and we'll take your order over the phone and then just let us know when you arrive, and we will provide CURBSIDE SERVICE! Our friendly and healthy staff will run your purchase out to you at your car! Or if you would prefer to shop when the store is empty, please call us to schedule an appointment outside normal business hours.
We hope this gives you a level of comfort that we can continue to meet your quilting needs.
