Our new hours will allow us to close before dark (11 am to 5 pm) and rest up for the next day of happy exchanges with quilters and sewists. I'm really looking forward to seeing you!
We're doing something new this year - inspired by the generosity of another new business in town, we are going to 'tithe' 10% once a month to a non-profit organization in Georgetown. Flatbreads does it every Tuesday Evening, helping out non-profits here and in surrounding towns. Recognizing that we are not as large or profitable as a restaurant, we set a first-step goal of supporting non-profits once a month.
To that end, on the first Wednesday of every month, Quilters' Quarters will donate 10% of the day's sales to an organization in town. This first month the Friends of the Georgetown Peabody Library is our chosen beneficiary. The Friends are the sole fundraising entity of the library, and work very hard with the community to raise money for children's summer programs, for museum passes, for teen programs and for adult events. Their big event is coming up this month - for the first time, they will hold a week-long book sale in the Meeting Room of the library. Watch your Georgetown Electric Bill Envelopes for the flyer advertising the special promotions during this book sale week at the library.
So mark your calendar - vote on Tuesday for your party's presidential candidate nominee, and visit Quilters' Quarters on Wednesday, knowing that your purchases will also benefit the fundraising for the library!
Happy Leap Year Day!
