The 2020 marks 20 years in business, 5 years of which have been at our current location. Are we ever glad that we can reopen, albeit in an abbreviated way for now.
To make up for all the months of missed monthly specials, all regular priced fabric bolts are 20% off min cut .5m, 30% off 2m or more (same bolt)
We pretty well sold out of batting during the closure - but there should be a big delivery coming to my home this week, so we will be restocked by the time we open. In order to save time, we are asking customers to call ahead if possible, so that we can cut your batting when the cutting table is available.
QUILTERS MARK YOUR CALENDARS: We are finally going to gradually reopen the shop, following all the rules/guidelines that the various health authorities have prescribed.
We will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays 11-3 and Saturdays Noon - 4, starting Tuesday June 2nd. We will gradually get back to our pre-Covid schedule.
******Staff will be taking all the precautions we are requiring of our customers.******
We have removed some displays to free up a bit more space near the till and a handy husband has installed a plexiglass shield.
Our debit/credit machine now has TAP! All it took was a virus to convince me. We are trying to avoid cash for now.
BEFORE COMING TO THE SHOP , please read through the following guidelines, requests and rules.
Please self assess - if you have any symptoms of illness or have been exposed to any one who may have it, please stay home.
Only 4 customers in the store at one time. All customers MUST correctly wear a mask, but NO GLOVES (The sign is the one displayed all over VGH Emergency).
If you forget a mask, we have a very limited number of disposable masks and we will sell you one for $2.00
There will be many bottles of sanitizer at the door and around the store. Please use them, because no one shops with their eyes. Our sanitizer is from a commercial 20 litre barrel - and it has a very alcohol industrial odour which dissipates but we are trying to overcome with it with essential oils. If you would prefer to use your own, nicer smelling sanitizer, feel free to do so. We will be wiping down counters , tools , handles, etc as required.
As you may or may not know, Bib n’ Tucker shares washroom space with another small commercial office. A necessary but less than ideal situation at the best of times. We have always had a basket of bathroom supplies for you to use as each business is responsible to provide their own. Our basket will continue to have all the basic necessities, but the fabric towel has been replaced with a roll of paper towelling and there are sanitizing wipes for the surfaces and hand sanitizer that you can use before and after using the facilities.
Please respect other customers by keeping 6ft from them. If someone is shopping in the exact area you want to access, please wait your turn.
Please do not crowd the staff at the cutting table - if you can, please measure your project if you are needing us to calculate border yardage, backing required etc. Don’t forget to write your calculations down before you come!
We all look forward to helping you get the fabrics necessary to complete your latest projects. Maybe you used up a lot of your stash making masks, scrub caps, scrub bags, etc (thank you for doing all that charity sewing) and you are wanting to plan some brand new quilting projects.
SEE YOU ALL SOON !
PS Thanks for the cards and emails about my health issues during the closure. A final procedure on May 27th should mark the end of that saga. After almost 15 months on antibiotics I am so grateful the end is in sight.
