September Newsletter - Facebook LIVE party Mondays at 7pm CST

First City Press
Tue - Fri 10am - 5pm    Sat 10am - 3pm


Calling all quilters!!!
Quilts of Valor is in need of some dedicated quilters to help with a Block Drive on September 16th. You can drop off blocks at First City Quilts anytime.
There will be a sew day on Monday, September 16th in Weston, MO.
Please visit the shop for more details and to pick up the block pattern.

Did you pick up your Saturday Sampler setting kit? If you pre-ordered a kit, they are ready to pick up. If you did not pre-order, we do have a few extra cut but quantities are limited. 
If you did not participate in our 2018-2019 Medallion Medley Sampler and would like to make the quilt. We will be offering it as a 12 month BOM starting in October. Sign up fee $16.99 and $16.99 per month for 12 months. Your setting kit will be included in with Block 12 at the end of the program.
Click on the link to join Medallion Medley Sampler BOM. Choose the modern or traditional quilt, or do both!

Demo and Show & Tell will continue due to popular demand at 10:30am on first Saturdays!!!

Sign up for the NEW!!! 2019-2020 Mystery Saturday Sampler in September - choose between Solids (brights) or Batiks (earth/jewel tones). Sign up fee $15 and first block is $5. Bring in finished block on the following first Saturday or the Tuesday AFTER and receive your next block FREE!!! You must pick up your own block each month.

What is Saturday Sampler? At First City Quilts, our Saturday Sampler is a program that you sign up for in September, pay a small sign up fee of $15 and purchase your first block for $5. If you finish your block and bring it in the following month on either the 1st Saturday from 10am-3pm OR the 1st Tuesday from 10am-5pm, you will receive your next block FREE!!! If you don't bring your block in on the designated days then your next block is $5. YOU MUST PICK UP YOUR OWN BLOCK. At the end of the program we will reveal the setting. If you decide to purchase the setting, we will give you a $15 (your sign-up fee) back toward your setting kit. 

What if I live too far away?
If you are unable to come to the shop, you can still participate. You will simply need to pay your sign-up fee and pay $5 for each block. To save on shipping, we can combine blocks and mail every other month or every quarter. We will PayPal invoice you for your blocks and shipping.

What are we doing this time?
It's a mystery, as usual, but we will tell you that it will be a sampler and the blocks will vary in size each month. Choose between the solids (brights) or batiks (earth & jewel tone) colorways. 

What do we get the first month? If you are unable to visit the shop, you can watch our Facebook LIVE party on Monday at 7pm CST and see our first block(s). OOPS! We apologize for the confusion last week as we didn't check the calendar to see that the first Monday was BEFORE the first Saturday so the block(s) will be revealed on the 9th.
