To My Valued & Inspirational Costumers:

I am writing to you today to inform you that after much consideration The Running Stitch Quilt Shoppe is going out of business on May 31, 2019. Closing SALES will begin Sunday May 26, 2019 and continue until the Shoppe’s closing on May 31, 2019. The Shoppe’s hours of operation during this final week are listed below and on the website.

My intentions are to clear out the Shoppe’s entire inventory to better position my transition as I continue to move forward. For my customers, the closing SALES will offer DEEP DISCOUNTS on the majority of the inventory, and value pricing on items like in stock Bernina sewing machines. Due to the nature of this sale, ALL SALES are final while supplies last and no returns or refunds will be offered.

With heartfelt thanks, I want you to know how much I have appreciated your patronage to The Running Stitch. Special thanks to those of you who helped support the Shoppe’s special events and classes like Aprons in April, Open Sew Wednesdays, and Quilts of Valor. Through these sessions we shared knowledge, ideas, creativity, inspiration, life stories, past, present and future projects, love, hope, dreams and yes, even a few tears along the way. Additional thanks to the people who helped make this Shoppe and the sessions a reality. All of you help make this dream a reality, and I will carry the lessons I have learned along the way with me into my future. For now let’s make this final closing SALES event a HUGE SUCCESS for ALL!!! Stop in, STOCK UP, share some final inspiration, gather future resource information, and we can all move forward one step at a time with a brighter outlook for achieving our next life DREAM!!!

With Gratitude,


Helga Lavan
