NEW: OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Dated: March 17, 2020
As I compose this, we find ourselves in the midst of an event none of us could have possibly ever imagined would happen in our lifetime! But it did and we are now in for, I suspect; a bumpy ride. Let’s hope we all come out of this strong, healthy and ready to soldier on.
Speaking of which, I wanted to give you all an update on where we are at Sweet Pea Quilting.
The news, the internet, the newspapers, social media and public health officials have told us so many things not to do and rightfully, have closed or cancelled so many events. What!??! We can’t go to Tim’s and socialize with friends. Never thought I would hear that in my lifetime!
But, what I have not heard is that you cannot Quilt!
We have decided to just reduce our store hours slightly but will remain open for business until Public Officials say otherwise. Beginning tomorrow Tuesday March 17th we will close at 4:00 pm each day.
Our store hours will be 9:30 to 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday. In these uncertain times, I am trying to continue with some sense of normalcy and hope you can as well.
To keep you as safe as we can, we will limit the number of people in the store to no more than 6 at a time. I know the store is small, but try keep your distance from each other, official recommendations are one metre, well as quilters, we are very familiar with that term! I will continue to wash my hands and wash my hands.
We will clean and disinfect the store each day, including but not limited to door handles, Visa machine, pens, counters, cutting tables, cash desk, cabinets, shelves and so on.
Curbside Pick Up Now Available!
We will also have curbside pick-up available. If you need fabric, batting or any quilting supplies, call ahead and I will have it ready for you. Drive up and I will hand you your package.
Need some fabric, just email me and I will take photos of some choices and send them off to you.
And, you can still drop your quilt off for quilting. Curbside pickup applies here as well. Just let me know and I will pick your quilt up from your car and return it to your car for you once it is quilted.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support because without you our joint creative endeavors could not continue.

Current Projects In Store Now
These are some of the projects we currently have on display at the store. Summer 2019 we have all of the patterns, kits or fabric for these items.
Fabrics, patterns and kits sell out quickly and sometimes are no longer available from the suppliers so if you see something you like, drop in or call soon.
Sweet Pea Quilting is more than just a cute little quilt store, we are here for fabric for quilting, quilting classes, notions, thread, long arm quilting to name a few. We have become a ‘must stop by’ for visitors to the beautiful Oceanside area on Vancouver Island.
