This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

BRRRRR  it's a tad bit chilly out there this morning.

This weekend was a mini Quilt Retreat for me and two friends at my apartment.  We all had high hopes and did finish stuff but not as much as we all wanted.

i hemmed 4 pairs of pants.  seemed like more but there was only 4.........lol

I am now a little bit over 1/2 way putting my Hoop Sisters Elegant Elements together.  I like it except the top left corner.  not sure if i pieced something wrong or if it's my color choices.  Hopefully in the next few weeks i can get the whole thing done!

I was going to post a picture but my dropbox is not working as i write this blog.  (i'll post next week)!

I also am working on a pair of knitted felted slippers!  didn't take a picture though.

Have a great week!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy BRRR Sunday!

At least it's a good day to be inside to watch Steelers and Pens!  Sorry for any of you sitting out for the game............lol

I don't think I'd survive sitting outside for a football game.  I think the arena is too cold!

I didn't do anything again this week.  Not sure how that keeps happening.

Two of my friends and I are having a mini retreat weekend next weekend at my apartment.  I hope to get my Elegant Elements quilt done and hem about 4 pairs of pants.  Is it doable?  We will see!

Stay warm and come buy fabric that will warm you even more!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

Enjoy the sunshine.  Sounds like it won't last much beyond today.

I think I have 90% of the new POS system done.  I need to update alot of customer information but other than that the only thing is I cant' seem to do a birthday list.

So if your birthday is in January please come in and tell us so you get your discount; however, there is no email or snail mail going out.  I hope to have this fixed by end of the month for the February people!

I also am almost ready to start putting the Elegant Elements Quilt together again.  I hope by end of January.  Yikes.  I am also starting on Christmas gifts knitted varieties now so maybe i can get stuff done.  I also want to start the felted clogs for the class.

Have you made a pair of these?  I should take a picture of the ones I've done in the past. I love these clogs and if you knit you should come to the class!  Check out our newsletter and here is a picture of the ones Emily did. They are cool if you do the sole a different color.  my next pair will be red soles and blue tops!  Come join us!


!   When: January 12th and 19th @5pm. Cost: $30 + supplies + pattern.  Teacher: Emily Klaczak.


Oops sorry i think that morphed from time w/Jenn to an advertisement!  I do this because I want people to take the class with me!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

Hope you all stayed safe yesterday in that ice storm.  Man I'm glad I have an auto starter on my car.  At least it made it easier to chip the ice off!

I am 90% sure we have the new POS system done!  I still have some cleanup issues so tht I have all the important information on you the customers!  However, that's behind the scenes.  We are still learning how to use some of the features but we are getting there!

Stay warm as we head back into the cold.  Wish those 60s had stuck around longer!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

Hope you are staying safe and warm inside.  Yuck snow!  I think all areas should have bubbles over them except where the ski resorts are.  That way you can get to the ski resorts safely and ski.  Not that I ski so I wish there was a bubble everywhere!

So on Friday we went live with our new POS system and our Chip Card Reader.  Please be patient with us.  A few glitches have happened and we hope to have everything perfect by the end of the week!

This Wednesday is our Staff Christmas Party so we will be closing at 5pm so we can go party for a couple of hours!

Stay warm and safe!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

I was very tempted to just copy and paste last week's blog!

Our conversion to the new POS system is days away!  That means the new stuff and the re-orders are piling up!  I think there might be a few special orders also.  Hopefully on Friday which is our official start date I will be able to start logging stuff in!

Please be patient with us as we learn the system and remember if you have a chip card you can now use it!  We will not be handling your credit cards unless for some reason it won't chip or scan right.

Stay warm this week and talk to you soon!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

I have been busy converting our POS system to a new one so  I have not done anything other than business stuff.

I don't have new stuff for you this week because even though it's being hidden in the supply room I need to wait until I get trained on the new software (starts Tuesday night) to get the new items into both systems.

We hope to convert Thursday, December 8th.  That means please have all purchases made by 5pm on that day!  Even though we will be open for knitting class we will not be doing any sales ater 5pm!  Friday morning we hope to be up and running.  Only a few changes will affect you the customer.  We will now be chip card enabled.  We will be re-doing the rewards.  You will keep your $150 gets a $5 gift card but we are working on a way to keep the fabric rewards. As of this time the company that the new system is with is still working with me to find a way to do this.  So be patient with me and my staff as we get trained and used to the new system!

Hope you have a great week!
