Holidays on the Horizon!


Welcome to Ma's Got'a Notion
Here at Ma's, we got your back...quilt back, that is!!!


I thank all of you who came to celebrate my 20th year. I appreciate all of my customers so much. You all rock!

HOLIDAYS... Yes, they are indeed around the corner! Geezers, they sure snuck up on me this year.

I wanted to let you know that I will be closed all day on Saturday, December 9, 2023. I wouldn't say I like to drive at night anymore, so I have planned the outing for the shop Christmas party in the daytime so I do not have to go at night this year. You all know Debbie Stell, the shop manager, but you may not know Linda Fletcher or Kelly Noble, who works in the background helping Deb and me make all the beautiful samples you see around the shop. I have purchased daytime tickets for the Nutcracker (we all need a little bit of the sugar plum fairy this time of the year). I wanted to treat them to this classic ballet and early supper. Then we can all be home before total darkness.

The following holidays, I will close so Debbie and I can spend time with the family. 

The month of November will be regular hours except for the following Thanksgiving hours:

Wed. Nov. 22, 2023, I will close at 2 PM (the day before Thanksgiving.)

Thur. Nov. 23, 2023, I will be closed all day on Thanksgiving day.

Friday, Nov. 24, 2323, which I believe everyone refers to as BLACK FRIDAY, I will be open all day, and you will find that I may have some sales going on that day! I will be open my usual hours, 10 AM - 5 PM.

The rest of November will be my regular hours of operation.

You might want to mention at the Thanksgiving table that...a gift certificate from Ma's Got'a Notion always fits you and that the scent of fabric is your favorite fragrance. It never hurts to drop hints at the table during normal conversation. If the conversation doesn't come around to "what do you give a quilter?" Introduce the topic; I believe it's an acceptable topic... after all, it is spelled accepTABLE!

All the month of December will be regular hours except for the following my " Winter Furlow" hours:

Saturday, Dec. 23, 2023 - Dec. 31, 2023: I will be closed for the Christmas holidays for my annual "Winter Furlow".

I will re-open for special hours on Monday, January 1, 2024, New Year's Day, from 9 AM - 4 PM for my annual "NEW YEARS DAY SALE!". Please plan to attend because I always make it worth it for you to stay sober the night before! LOL, no kidding, it's always a great day to spend those gift certificates your family and friends gave you for Christmas, that "table talk" you introduced at the Thanksgiving table; now that conversation will be your payday!

If you travel for the holidays, be safe, stay healthy, and make memories!

And, for your sanity's some quilting; it will keep those around you during the holidays...well, let's say... do it for everyone's safety!

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas, and if you celebrate other holidays during this time of the year, Happy to you & yours for those days too!

Could you be sure to save the above dates so you don't travel to Havana and find me closed for the above special dates? I will send you a few reminders before each date so I can save you the trip.

Have a great week, and I hope to see you around the cutting table at Ma's.
