It has been a long time coming -- summer is back, and with it brings the smell of roasted marshmallows, wet towels, and sunscreen. With the lifting of Covid restrictions life is looking more normal and we hope that each of you have some plans for seeing friends and family.
In case you missed our Instagram post -- Wooden Gate Quilts will be moving as of August 1, 2021. The new location is in the Danville Livery (big retail complex on the west corner of Sycamore Valley Rd & San Ramon Valley Blvd.) Suite 310. Look for the Blue double doors next door to Bagel Cafe ---
Mark your calendars -- and keep an eye out for emails with the exact opening date (you know how construction is -- ) Regardless of opening date - the store will be closed the last week in July(25th - 31st) so we can pack, move and set up in the new store. We will fulfill online orders and curbside pickup will be available during this transition week.
Class Update: We are in the midst of setting our late summer and fall class schedules. Listed below are Laura Heine Collage classes that are on the books. These classes will be both in person and Zoom. Remember, Debi is a Laura Heine certified instructor and has tips and tricks that can help you along your collage experience. Stop in and see some collage examples and check out our selection of Laura Heine patterns. Stitch Session Pass: In late May we launched our Community Stitch Club Membership. These members will begin using our classroom space the first week in August. We will open memberships again in October --- but don't fret -- there are Stitching Session passes available where you pick your three hour session and join the stitch fun. Stitch Session pass reserve a seat for you for a three hour session and can be purchased for $35. Reservations are required and are on a first come/first serve basis. We ask that you call and reserve a seat at least the day before coming to sew.
To Mask or Not to Mask --- In our efforts to keep everyone as safe as possible we are implementing the following mask policy starting July 1st, 2021. Wooden Gate Quilts respects everyone’s opinion and choice in regards to mask wearing. For those using our classroom (Stitch Club Members, class participants) proof of vaccination will be required before your first class session. Non vaccinated participants can join classes via Zoom.
For shoppers - if you are vaccinated (honor system) you will not need to wear a mask in the shop. If you do not feel comfortable going "maskless" yet, we respect that - shop with a mask. At this time, our staff is choosing to wear masks and we hope that you also respect our choices. We will continue our diligent cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces during opening hours, and for all our safety hand sanitizer is available. We also recognize that this policy could change as we continue to move through this pandemic, so please remember that our number one priority is having everyone remaining healthy.
