It is with great anticipation and some tear-stained reservation that Geri at The Pine Needle is announcing her retirement. After 25 years, she's earned it! We are excited for Geri and the opportunities now open to her, and while this is a bittersweet moment, the rest of us Pinecones are also excited about the adventure ahead.
It has been a wonderful quarter century and we have made life-time friends. All of us at The Pine Needle have enjoyed each and every day that we have shared with you. It has been our honor that you have chosen to be one of our customers and we value you and your choices more than you know.
We know you will have lots of questions and will try our best to address them all. First off, from Wednesday Feb 21 through Monday Feb 26th we'll have everything 20% off. We've received some new goods and added more of our sample quilts for sale, so come on in!
The shop will temporarily close from Tuesday Feb 27th through March 7th while we are at the Sewing Expo in Puyallup (feel free to come visit our booths there for savings on kits, fabric, and notions!).
This means no Westside Modern Quilt Club meeting in February. In all likelihood, WMQC will go on hiatus for a few months as the shop transitions to it's next inhabitants. We are still planning on having our Black and White special exhibit at expo though, so keep working on your challenge quilts!
Our classes will also continue as scheduled.
March 8 will mark the beginning of our everything must go final sale, and doors will close on April 1st.
Geri's not going away completely though -- she will run the retreats scheduled for 2018 and plans to devote her time, skills, and boundless energy to more retreats! If you are interested in being added to our 2019 retreat interest list just come on in to the shop before April 1, give us a call, or sign up online here. We'd love to continue the adventure!
