Post Holiday Party News!

Greetings!

We had so much fun today at our Holiday party! Thanks to everyone who visited us today!

We’re  open Sunday December 3rd, from 12 to 5pm.  We’d love to see you!  There’s lots of goodies left!  Bring a project, sit by the fire, or just come by to show us your latest project, the more the merrier!  All are welcome to join us for the afternoon. We’ll clear space on the big table, chat, listen to Christmas music and sew!

Have a Happy Holiday Season!

2017 Holiday Party!

With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore:

‘Twas the second of December, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The fire burned merrily in the chimney with care,
In hopes that the quilters soon would be there;

The children still nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of away time danced in Mom’s head;
And Shelly and Sherry in their bright Christmas hats,
Had just settled down with a cider and snack.

Decorations are hung, kits made and arranged
Everything so tidy, it almost looks strange!
Gifts for our quilters, gifts for our friends
Fabrics to sew with, colors to blend

Suddenly the door bells rang with a clatter,
We sprang from our chairs like a pair of mad hatters.
On with the music! Up with the lights!
A quilter is here looking for gifts just right.

Come in, Friends, be welcome in our quaint little shop!
So off with your jacket, your mittens, and tops,
stop for a breath, a drink, and relax.
Shop as you like, there’s even no tax!

A gift for a friend who just arrived from a trip
You need something neat to make up real quick.
With a grin we reply, we’re so happy you came!
We whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:

“Here’s MUG MATS and COASTER KITS! There’s POP-UPS galore!
There’s PILLOWCASE and SCARF KITS found in the store!
Easy JOURNAL COVERS for kids! Or SOUP BOWLS for fall!
Now dash away! Sew away! Get one or get all!”

And then, in a twinkling, you hear from the store
Strains of Christmas carols, making you want more.
Scents of fresh cider, crisp cookies, and fudge
Can’t find a seat? Give someone a nudge!

Don’t dally, don’t pause while making the drive
Our party only lasts from noontime to five!
We hope you will join us for an afternoon of fun!
And Sunday’s our last open day before the year’s done.

With good friends, food, presents and gifts galore,
We’re hoping you’ll visit, and come back for more.
And you’ll hear us exclaim, as you walk out of sight,
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!

Fall 2017 Schedule!

Greetings!
Where does the time go! We can’t believe it’s fall already…

The quilt studio will be open the first weekend of October and the first weekend of December.
Shelly and Sherry have another commitment in November…

We’re planning a holiday party for the first Saturday in December so be sure to mark the date on your calendar, December 2nd, and watch the site for more info as we get closer to the date!

Happy Holiday Season!

Greetings to all our quilting friends!

We saw many of you earlier this month at the brand new
Connections Quilt Festival in Nashua.
Thank you for stopping by to say hi to us out in the lobby!

We’re busy decorating (and finding space for still more fabric) to get ready for our open weekend in December.

Shelly and I both wanted to reach out to all our quilting friends and favorite customers and wish you and yours a Very Happy Holiday Season!

Blessed Be

October shop news

Happy Fall to all!
We are SO happy the weather has finally turned cool again! Summer’s not really us.

To celebrate the first signs of Fall we’re going to bring the wheel back out for the month of October. So…

Come spin the wheel for 5% to 20% off your order!

To sweeten the deal, the discount includes the clearance fabric (which is still on sale!)

Hope to see you soon!
Your quilting friends

Huge Sales Event!!!

For the month of September we’re putting all the $7/yard clearance fabric on an even deeper discount sale!

We want to clear out the current discounted fabric so we can finish setting up the ‘social’ area and get the design wall put up, but first we need to make some room…so…

Buy 10+ yards and only pay $5 per yard!…that’s less than wholesale costs. Makes it a great time to stock up on backing fabric for all those wonderful quilts you have in progress…

In shop only sale.

Stop by early while the variety is still good!

PS…we are working on the web site for cotton novelty fabrics, please bear with us, it’s coming…

September News!

Greetings!

We can hardly wait for the fall colors…and cooler temperatures…to head our way!

The shop calendar has been added to the website!

It’s not pretty yet, still learning how it works…wry smile… but dates have been added through the beginning of December and we’ll keep adding more Saturdays at the very least as we move into the season and schedules start to firm up.

As of right now we’re planning to be open the first weekend of September, 9/3 & 9/4, along with two additional Saturdays, 9/17 and 9/24.

We hope to see you there!
Your quilting friends

August at the Studio

Greetings fellow fabric lovers!

August has started in a flurry of activity and a chance to see many of our quilting friends at the Bayberry Quilters’ quit show last week down on Cape Cod!  The weather cooperated this year and the days were warm but dry.  Saturday’s rain even held off until we were all packed up!  The Bayberry Quilt Guild has some very productive, and talented!, ladies and the quilts were beautiful, whimsical, happy, awe-inspiring, creative….all those things a good quilt show should be.  *smile*

Now we’re sad – there’s nothing to make you want to dive into a new quilting project like being inspired by a good quilt show….but alas, it’s Monday morning and back to work!

Speaking of work….we’ve been looking at our calendars and because of end-of-the-summer schedules, the Studio will NOT be open for the month of August.  However, starting in September, we guarantee to be open the first weekend of every month – Saturday, 11am-7pm and Sunday, 11am-5pm.  From there, you can view the calendar for other open days…and yes, the calendar WILL be posted on this site sometime THIS month – we promise! *sheepish smile*

Also remember that you can always call – if we answer the phone, we’re there and you’re welcome to come by – or write us to make an appointment.

Thanks and happy end-of-summer! (we can’t WAIT for cooler weather! *grin*)

Welcome to our new shop site!

Welcome!  We’re so excited!  While Purrfect Pastimes celebrated our 10th anniversary last year, we’ve always been a work-from-home business.  Now, for the first time, we have a brick and mortar storefront!

Our Quilting Studio officially opened on June 10, 2016 and we’re still working out how to manage the shop while still maintaining stock to vend at shows.  Oh, and our list of ideas for the studio are endless – we’re most excited because this is a space for us to design and create in (and not have to clear the table for supper! *grin*)…but we’re also planning to hold classes, social events, and much more!  Stay tuned!

See our Grand Opening page and watch the shop unfold!
