Accurate cutting and pressing techniques
A square quilt, starts at the beginning and that is at the cutting table.  Using your rulers correctly, and having rulers that you can read, is of utmost importance.  Let us show you during this demo of several different types of rulers how to get better accuracy.  We will also cover some basic pressing techniques for logical reasons in pressing that the pattern you are using may not tell you.


Check our calendar on the website for more fun things to come!

* Interested in teaching a technique or unique class? We are presently looking for contract teachers.  If you love what you do and would like to share that knowledge with others, please contact Kelly for more information.*

New Rewards Program
2015 was the last year that Hoppin Bobbin will participate in the Charm Program.  While the Charms have been fun for all of us, we have customers that have collected all of the charms, every month for the last 5 years. That, is a lot of charms!   Keeping our customers in mind, we still wanted a way to say thank you to all of our customers who shop with us.  In 2016, we start our new rewards program.  This program accrues rewards for you, with every non-discounted purchase.  At the bottom of your receipt, you will see a note that tells you how many more points you need before you receive a reward or a coupon with the reward amount.  Coupons are good towards your next purchase.  You must bring coupon in to redeem and they are valid for 60 days.   So, collect those "Hoppin Bucks" and use them towards your next purchase!


Sample
Sale
We have many beautiful samples that are ready for a home, while I love them all, I can't possibly keep them all!    Samples on the Sample Sale rack are available for purchase and are 25% off of the ticketed price.  From table runners, table toppers to lap and twin size quilts.


Sew In Days 
Every Tuesday and Friday from 10-5, Hoppin Bobbin hosts a Sew in Day.  Bring a project and all of your supplies and have a great day sewing with friends.  Bring a covered dish to share.  If you are planning on staying the day, please fill the parking spots in the rear of the building first.  This enables new customers to find parking in the front of the building.
