The philosopher, Heraclitus, said change is the only constant. We believe it's an opportunity for learning, progress and ultimately success. No matter the challenge, as creative individuals we welcome the inspiration that follows. Changes are coming to the Mercantile and we are excited to share what we've got up our sleeve! But first we want to thank you for your support of our Corn Wagon Too venture. Offering a gift shop unique to the quilting community has been a fun journey. Mercantile manager, Shannon White, says it's bittersweet to announce the Quilter's Mercantile is closing. She has poured her heart into the Merc but having a new direction is a chance to look forward to a new adventure.
So, what do we have in mind for the space? Well, you, our customers have spoken and we have heard the call for more sewing space -- this time on the ground level! We are delighted to announce we will be opening another beautiful retreat room available to rent for sewing events. It will be a flexible environment ideal for guilds to gather, trunk shows, classes and of course, quilting retreats! Thanks to you, Corn Wagon Too has become a building filled daily with our favorite sound -- quilter's conversing happily to the hum of their machines. We can't wait to add a premiere room to our offering that will be similar in function and amenities to our existing retreat space but with the convenience of ground-level entry. Stay tuned for more details such as pricing and opening dates.
To get the ball rolling, we need your help clearing out the space to make room for more sewing! Beginning Monday, February 14th, regular price inventory at the Quilter's Mercantile will be 25% off! Some items, such as Christmas decor and CBD products are 50% off!
Handmade artisan goods such as pottery, African baskets, quilt ladders and baked goods are excluded. If you've had your eye on something at the Merc, now is your chance to grab it at a great price. You'll be glad to know we will continue to offer a fun selection of quilter's gifts and goodies at the Quilt Shop in the future so you'll still be able to rely on us for unique finds and delicious treats. cornwagonquilts.com ISO Longarm Machine Quilter!Would you like to be one of the gals at The Wagon?
