Beginning Stage 2 of Covid Re-opening in Massachusetts

Quilters' Quarters continues to provide free quilt quality cotton fabric to mask makers as we progress into our fourth month of the Corona Virus pandemic. As the shop is not a food source, nor an essential item source, it is restricted to opening only for curb side pickup or distance delivery. Customers, even in limited numbers, are not yet able to enter the shop to browse the shelves. I'll do my best to post new fabrics here at the blog or on Facebook,  as they arrive

Massachusetts'Governor Charlie Baker is a responsible leader who is paying much more than lip service to the scientists at the CDC and NIH, and I respect him for that leadership. During "Stage 2" (beginning June 8th) I am happy to fill customer orders for fabric and notions via "Storm Door" pickup ... bags with customer names are put outside the door during good weather, or inside during storms ... and the shop's regular hours of Thursday through Saturday will resume this week, noon to 5 pm. You can place orders via email (needlesandpens@comcast.net) or telephone (978-352-2676) and payments of cash or check can be made at the door of the shop.  I am not yet able to accept credit cards, but will also accept an IOU from known customers. And your 20% initial or 40% repeat customer discounts will continue as established.  

Here is a new panel that just arrived this week: it measures 24" x 42" and retails, before discount, at $9.00 per panel.  It has a blender fabric that retails for $11.80 per yard. Remember, ALL Quilters receive a discount on their total order with few exceptions.

I'm happy to let you know that the donations left here and at other mask makers' homes have helped provide bagged breakfasts and lunches for Georgetown's eligible public school students throughout the months of shutdown.  So far your generosity has provided over two thousand dollars to the lunch program. When school closes, the donations will  then be provided to a local food pantry for the summer months, during which time the Massachusetts will provide food purchase eligible cards to families with eligible students.

And Quilters' Quarters has donated over six thousand dollars worth  of fabric to our mask makers, and those makers have created somewhere between fifteen and twenty thousand masks here in the Merrimack Valley and the North Shore communities, adding to our level of safety here in Essex County.  I appreciate the help of everyone involved in this socially responsible activity.

Please continue to behave responsibly, safely and in good health practice ... wear your mask when you leave home ... maintain your six feet of social distance, wash your hands as often as possible, and share empathy and kindness with everyone you meet, as suffering from worry, depression, loss and anxiety are not always obvious, but are always in need of support.  Thank you for what you can and will do for the common good.
~Terry
