We have thought long and hard about whether or not to hold our annual Australia Day Sale in 2021. It has been an iconic event on the calendar of many of our quilting friends and customers for the last eleven years.
Most of our customers are in the demographic that is potentially susceptible to Covid 19, and so are we, so this has to be a consideration in our decision.
The other major factor is that there is hardly any opportunity to implement social distancing because of the sheer numbers of lovely customers who attend our sale. Even if we limited the numbers by making appointments, it would still be very difficult to abide by the rules. If we held the sale as usual, or even in a modified form, we could potentially be putting at risk our customers, our staff and ourselves.
For these reasons, we have decided not to hold the sale this year at the shop. We apologise for this, and also for the late notice.
However, the good news is, we will be having a largely extended ONLINE SALE, with many new kits and many of our fabrics available at very reduced prices. This will start on Australia Day Tuesday 26th january 2021. Local customers will be able to make an appointment for Click and Collect to avoid the postage charge, Watch for our newsletter in mid January for previews of what will be on sale.
We thank you, our lovely customers, many of whom have become friends, for your loyal support of our annual event. We hope to hold the sale agian on Austrlaia Day 2022, when hopefully the world has returned to a better state.
