This New Year Party is in the Bag -- Stuff-a-Bag Sale Saturday!
New Year's Quilting Goals, 2023 Edition: 1. Rotate fabric stash (Translation: move piles around sewing room to feign productivity and make room for more fabric.) 2. Spend more time at sewing machine (Translation: pour me a soda, sit down by machine, turn on Netflix, seam-ripper in-hand) 3. Finish more quilts (Translation: buy more fabric, start more projects to put off until 2027) 4. Join a sewing club to keep up with new block-of-the-month (Translation: gab with the girls -- refreshments will be served)
The list goes on but you get the idea. Whatever you hope to accomplish in the New Year, we hope to be a part of the fun! We can't wait to see what wonderful things you'll create. Bring them in for a little show and tell. Share on social media and tag us so we can cheer you on! Celebrating new works of art with our quilting friends is our favorite part of working at the Wagon. So, what will you be making in 2023? Here's a great way to pick up what you need to get a great start...
New Year's Eve just happens to fall on a 5th Saturday and you know what that means! This year's party is in the bag! Tomorrow, December 31st, bring in your reusable cotton Corn Wagon bag and we'll give you 20% off any regular price items you can "stuff" inside the bag! Fill'er up -- see what you can fit -- come on -- make us proud! Don't have a bag? No worries! You can buy a bag for $5 and reuse it every 5th Saturday for the same great sale! If you look close you'll see I chose to stuff my bag with some of the new Lucky Rabbit line by Heather Ross and I just can't get enough Tula Pink Hardware. Stuff-a-Bag Sale is always a great way to stock up on must-have notions like rotary blades, thread, marking tools and glue! We'll be open tomorrow from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. That's right, we'll be closing early so be sure to give yourself time to shop before 3:00!
HOLIDAY HOURS UPDATE: Once we close Saturday at 3:00 p.m., we've made the decision to remain closed through Monday, January 2nd. We'll resume our regular business hours Tuesday, January 3rd, 10:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. Remember, you can shop Corn Wagon online 24/7! Thank you for making 2022 another great year filled with wonderful inspiration and the best friends we could wish for. We hope you enjoy the weekend with those you love most -- and maybe get a start on that new project.
