Crazy – Scary – Breath.

Lets look out for each other.

This week is nuts… what more can you say about where our world is at this moment.

As a small business this virus not only can harm ones health but ones livelihood. We at Loopy D’s are still operating during this difficult time. We are keeping social distancing, Cleaning take-in area after every visitor including wiping down all surfaces with disinfection wipes.

We have also provided a drop off & pick up box if you don’t want to come into the studio.

We can email you our take – in sheet which you can fill out and attach to your quilt or quilts. Those that have used us know we carry batting and backing so it’s a one stop shop.

For those using our service and supporting small business we are going to be offering a 20 % percent discount on all services during this time. Book  your quilt into the queue and you will receive this discount even if it’s months away. Purchase a gift certificate save 20 %

On a personal note this is scary , my household is totally self employed ! Right now the health experts are saying weeks my gut is saying this is going to be months. So I am praying we all look out for each other . Always looking for the positive. Evil giggle.

One on One instruction

So todaElephanty spent the morning with a client that came to sign up for our Elephant Abstraction workshop. Workshop is Friday Feb. 4, Saturday 5, and Sunday the 6th. Cost $75 dollars plus supplies. You can see this pattern on our facebook page . Its going to be a great weekend , meals included two spaces still available.  Now my client can’t do a three day workshop due to personal reasons and it made me think. Not all of us can take scheduled classes due to our own personal schedules. Maybe we needed to consider opening the studio up to those that needed help and an on hand instructor. So as of today we will be opening up the studio for those that need help would like to learn something or just want to use our sewing machines. On site we have three sewing stations , give us a call to let us know what you need help with and spend the day working on your own project. Cost $25 dollars a day.

Snow ah, ah , ah…

Wow Christmas is just around the corner I know this cause I just came up for air to let the dogs out and ah we have like snow covering everything ! Now honestly I should have known this was going to happen as today winter tires where put on my truck. So yes Calgary blame the snow on me. So I should be freaking out that the holidays are just around the corner but yeah not even a little phased . This week and next week finishing off major quilts that are totally custom. I have been sick for the last month so it’s nice to be feeling like my usual self. I am not totally back to normal but at least I can work for more than ten minutes at a time. Some exciting things did happen this week had a TV crew in the studio filming … Guess someone thinks I have an unusual job. The crew was out of Toronto and it was interesting to say the least. Will keep you posted when and if it’s going to be aired. It’s a pilot show and they are not sure if it will be picked up but they have traveled all over Canada filming different people so who knows. Heck it still was an interesting day .  I don’t think I do anything unusual other than doing something one loves. The secret to a happy life is do something you love, surround yourself with positive happy people, love yourself . Three simple things . Will keep you posted.

Now with Christmas just around the corner have you booked your quilt in for quilting? All Longarm Studio’s  have deadlines as we to want to be able to spend time with our families. Loopy D’s Deadline for the Christmas Rush is December 5th. Schedule it in so we can add it to the calendar .

We are also offering a new service just in time for Christmas. Book a Christmas party, Birthday party or a girls night out at loopy D’s your guests will make and take home an art piece. You get to try something new and different. kit’s are made for each person and we custom the party for you. Each party will be geared around what you would like to try. And nothing needs to be purchased you just show up and everything is provided. It’s kind of nice not to be expected to purchase anything . It’s a party and if you fall in love with quilting I will be sure to send you to my favorite quilting shop as I totally believe in supporting local businesses.
