Greetings from the Desert!
Things are really heating up here at Monica's. Okay--I know--it's hot here in the summer anyway, but, seriously! We have been making new friends all over the country since being named one of the Top Ten Shops in the country by Better Homes and Gardens earlier this year. We launched a new website last December, just in time to make it easy for Quilt Sampler readers to shop in their pajamas. It has been such a thrill to connect with creative people who have discovered Monica's through the magazine. Last week, Monica's was featured in our local newspaper, The Desert Sun. Nice to be recognized by your home town.
We're busy celebrating eight wonderful years in business here in Palm Desert this week with an Anniversary Sale: 20% savings on pearls, semi-precious stones, yard cuts (or more), and fat quarter packets. On Saturday, July 13th, it's a party from 10 - 3. I love a party--please come celebrate with me!
Next week we'll be participating with other shops, giving back to the community. Beaders Give Back: Bead and Feed runs from July 15th to the 21st. We've teamed up with Food In Need of Distribution (FIND) for this SCLBSA event. FIND works in partnership with community-based organizations across eastern Riverside and southern San Bernardino counties, serving over 80,000 hungry people every month. Bring in $5 worth of canned food and receive a $5 discount coupon for a purchase of $30 or more. Bring in $20 worth of canned food and take a free bracelet class.
On July 18, make 3 different riveted leather bracelets. $10.95 for the kit.
On July 18, make a sparkly cup chain bracelet with a button closure. Kits start at just $5.
There's always something new here at Monica's--fabrics arrive daily, jewelry-making and quilting classes happen all week long, join us for Sit and Sew, Sit and Bead...we are your one stop shop for top quality beading and quilting supplies. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is here to help.
