The Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Bag Your Booty!
It’s a whole week of great deals for you starting Tuesday, December 3, and running until Saturday, December 7. Watch for a special “Booty Email” at 9:30 am (EST) each morning Monday through Friday and bag yourself some booty!
Shop online or give the gals a call each day to get the daily deals. Pick-up (by you or your Santa) at the end of the week, starting at 2:00pm, Saturday, December 7. It will be all packed up in a pretty gift bag. Or let the Calico “Elves” ship it to you! Place your orders by phone 315-445-0617 or in the online store.
Sister Shops Passport Program
Sister Shops is a passport program designed to help stitchers find friendly, fun and fabulous places to shop for fabric.
Stitchers purchase passports from their participating home shop. They then visit other participating shops to collect stamps in their passport. Stitchers bring their stamped passport back to their home shop to redeem a minimum of 10 stamps for gifts.
Forget about your cares, it’s time to have fun at the Junction! Calico Gals Junction, that is!
It’s our newest Facebook group for everyone who enjoys quilting, sewing, stitching, crafting, and all that good stuff. Click to join!
Wooly Block Adventure
Like it’s cousin Row by Row Experience, Wooly Block Adventure is all about collecting fun patterns.
Wooly patterns are highlighted each week on the RxR Experience website during the Wooly Block Adventure season, via Special Shoplight Section. Wonderful sampler projects bring ‘woolies’ together in their shared love of wool.
Calico Gals’ 2019 Wooly Block is Celebrate the Simple Things and can be created with an American or Canadian flag.

Note about the map
Important! On the map you will see a street labeled Hazelhurst, just to the right of the red balloon. That is the wrong name! The name of the street is actually Marisa Heights. So, when you’re looking for the store, it’s at the corner of New Court Ave. and Marisa Heights (which is a teeny little street with a big sign).
