February Happenings at RMSV

Rob sure keeps us busy! Here’s a look at February happenings at RMSV.

We just wrapped up a very successful Floriani Quilting event held at our new Aurora store. Over 100 sewists took part to learn how to “quilt as you go” in the embroidery hoop. It was “sew much fun!” It was so great to be able to host this event at our store. We welcome feedback from any of our attendees on how we can make future events even better. Feel free to post any comments below or on our Facebook page.

We’re also very excited to have launched our Pinterest and Instagram pages. Check them out!

Now it’s time for some sales! We have several opportunities for you to save with all of the February Happenings at RMSV.

Floriani Overstock Sale

If you got the email newsletter, then you know we have some excess stock of thread, cutting mats, stabilizers, batting and other Floriani products from the event. We have left the product displays up, and you can get the show price on these items until Wednesday, February 7th. So stop in the Aurora store and pick up some great products at a great price!

The Dream Machine 2If you’ve been wanting a Brother Dream Machine 2 now is the time.We had over 30 Brother Dream Machines set up for the Floriani Quilting Event and now they’re priced to move! These machines were only used for two days, and come with the full manufacturer’s warranty. As with all our machine sales, we offer free classes  help you learn all the features of these “Dream Machines”.

We’re just getting the Aurora store back in shape to celebrate its Grand Opening. If you haven’t see the beautiful new Aurora store, now is your chance. No worries, though, if the Aurora store is not convenient for you.  For two days only – February 9th and 10th – visit any of our stores to save on almost everything in the 4 stores. Many of our dealers, like Bernina, Brother, PFAFF, HandiQuilter, Unique Furniture, are joining in the celebration. With their help, we are offering our customers deep discounts, special financing and promotional bundles.

EVERYTHING is on sale! You can get 25% to 70% off notions and accessories. Save up to 50% off regular price of all sewing machines, sergers, sewing furniture, software and vacuums.

But Wait, There’s More!

We’ll be having in-store lotteries both days (February 9 and 10) at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. at each location for amazing prizes. We’re giving away sewing chairs, sewing machines, vacuums and more! New tickets will be handed out to those attending 15 minutes before each drawing. You must be present to win.

UFO Sightings

We are so excited about the response to the 2018 UFO challenge! With almost 200 participants, the 2018 challenge is really going to be exciting and fulfilling! We can’t wait to see some of your OFUs (Objects Finished Up) at the February Sew Fun.

You know, we get new customers all year long and don’t want anyone to be left out of the challenge. So we are allowing year-long entry into the challenge (even if you’re not a new customer).  The only restriction is that those who join in later months will not be able to get drawing entries for previous months.  So, for example, if you join in March, you will only be eligible for raffle tickets for 10 completed projects, not twelve. Of course, those projects must be listed on the Challenge Entry Form and accepted at the store. Likewise, if you join in July, then you’d be eligible for raffle tickets for 6 completed projects, etc.

So, it’s not too late to join the challenge! I’m working on one of my challenges and will “show and tell” at the February Sew Fun sessions. See you there!
