A Holiday Gift for You,
Our Loyal Customers

We’re starting our gift-giving early this holiday season. This week only, 12/8-12/14, we’re accelerating the rate at which you’ll earn your $20 loyalty reward certificate!

In our regular reward points program, you earn a $20 reward certificate when, over time, you’ve accumulated $300 in eligible purchases. This week only, when you shop for fabric, notions, patterns and books you’ll reach your reward after just $150 in accumulated purchases!* That means if you already have purchases in your account working toward your next loyalty reward, when you shop this week you could receive your $20 certificate if your total reaches $150 rather than the usual $300.

So maybe it’s time to pick up that special ruler or kit you’ve had your eye on.  😉
*Classes, gift certificates, Makers Gallery, sale and other discounted items do not earn loyalty points.

Blue Bar Quilts Gift Certificates now available online!

Do you have a Blue Bar Quilts gift certificate on your holiday wish list or have someone in mind who’d love to receive one? Our gift certificates are available for purchase online anytime, anywhere. Just go to and click on Purchase a Gift Certificate in the navigation bar and you’ll go straight to our gift certificate page where you can purchase then print out a gift certificate.

No printer? No problem. Just bring in your gift certificate on your mobile device and we’ll be able to access it from there. Gift certificates purchased online will be stored in the customer history associated with the email address of the purchaser.

Reduce, Reuse or Just Don’t Use

The November winner of our monthly drawing to promote reduction of plastic bag waste is Nancy Gants! Nancy has won a 4 fat quarter gift card. Thank you to all customers who elect to use their own shopping bag or who just refuse a new one at checkout. It may seem like a small gesture, but never forget that collectively we can bring about change and have an impact on protecting our environment.
