As you all know we are totally closed until at least April 13. It may be longer depending on what the government does. When the ban is lifted we will go back to business. There may still some time restrictions but we will work with that. Hopefully all will be well soon
Since we are closed, if you need to contact us please do so by email, email@example.com. I check email everyday, but we do not go to the store very often so we do not check the answering machine very often. We will, most likely, not get back to you through phone messages.
This week I have taken the opportunity to work on organizing my sewing room. All I can say is, "boy, is it slow going." I has been nice to have some down time. I enjoy cooking fun and new meals for Ed. He completely enjoys that part of me being home.
We, at Material Mart, have been presented with an opportunity. It is called “Operation: I AM MIDLAND.” It is sponsored by “Red Threads.” “Red Threads,”is a company that, in their words, makes “custom print T-Shirts like it’s what they were created to do.” “Red Threads” specializes in screen printing, vinyl heat press and dye sublimation. “Red Threads” is running a t-shirt campaign for the next 30 days to raise money for Midland small businesses. It is called "I Am Midland."This campaign was created with small businesses in mind to help make money to cover expenses during a time when they cannot open due to the governor’s executive order. When people go to Shop Redthreads they have the option to purchase a shirt, or make a $50 donation. In the checkout process they will be required to make a choice from a drop-down menu as to which business they would like to support.(Here is an updated list of the businesses who are participating.) $13 for every shirt purchased will go directly to the local business they choose. After customers make their choice of whom to support, they can either have their item(s) shipped to them or they can pick up their items locally. This is truly a blessing to Midland businesses. If you feel led, go to their site, make a purchase and support Material Mart or the business of your choice.
We will be doing Material Mart Musings, FaceBook Live at 6:30pm on Monday. I just have no idea where I will be while doing it.
Thanks again for supporting us and praying for us.
May you all stay healthy, have a great week and take time for quilting every day.
