Bear Patch Black Friday and Beyond!

We are still going strong here in the aisles of Bear Patch!
Our Going-Out-Of-Business sale is progressing, there are a few empty spots on the shelves and bare walls where samples used to hang.
But no shortage of fabric!  All of these beauties shown below have been here a very short time, and you can still run on down and get some for yourself!  Our shelves are still full, just waiting for you!  We keep sending fabric out the front door with smiling customers, while UPS and FedEx are hauling in boxes at the back door!  
So, starting on Friday, November 23, 
our storewide discount goes to 25% off!

What's included in the discount:
All of our wonderful fabric from so many makers, plus any remaining clearance fabric that was marked down to $7 earlier.  Half yard minimum cut.
Books and patterns galore!  We still have many popular titles on hand.

All of our threads (Cosmo, Sulky, Aurifil, Isacord, Mettler, Cotton+Steel)
Machine embroidery CD's and patterns
Bernina feet and accessories
What's not included:
Bernina machines, they are discounted separately

Consignment items
Clearance items and store fixtures
In addition to your 25% discount, we also want to let you know that beginning December 1, we will not be open in the evenings except for only a few class nights.  
We will add revised dates and times on the online calendar in case you forget.  Please check this link, or call 651-429-1039 if you have any questions.  Thank you for your kind words and support as we usher Bear Patch into retirement!  We held a retirement party for Debbie and Laurel with more than 50 people in attendance at Tria in North Oaks.  So much fun, and a few tears, too!  We had gathered lots of old photos over the 21 years of business for a slide show, which was great entertainment!  I'll work on creating a Smilebox slideshow for you soon!

An Update From Bernina World

Have you seen the great discounts on our Bernina machines?   In addition to our marked down display Bernina machines, we also have the Bernette machines to serve as an entry level machine for anyone.  These machines are designed and made by Bernina.  These would make great starter machines for a younger person wanting to learn how to sew, maybe a grand daughter?  Or a machine that is lightweight and basic to take with you on a retreat or trip.  Special pricing on our display models.  Bernina prices can't be published online, but you can come to the store or call 651-429-6500 for more specific information.

 We are also moving out some of our Horn cabinets and shelves from the store.  So that means great prices for you!  These have all been used for display in the store, so they are next to new.  They are sold "As Is", meaning if you see a blemish, you do not receive any change in the price.  The storewide discount does not apply to these items.

Storage cabinet with drawers, shelves and doors.  Designed with the machine embroiderer in mind, it has a roomy shelf for the embroidery module and a slide out hook panel for hoops of all sizes.  When not in use, close the front doors to keep all the clutter out of sight and safe.  Regularly $2123, now $1050.00.
This is a great machine cabinet that has space to place either large or small machines on a work surface.  The desk top in back and left side supports the weight of the fabric if you are quilting.  Was $2499.00, now $1999.00.
We have these 2 shelving units going for the bargain price of $50 each!  There is even lighting above the top shelf!  Merchandise pictured is not included.

Another terrific table that is so useful!  This has a hydraulic lift that is strong and safe for the large, heavy machines.  The machine can be lowered and a blank panel inserted in the opening lets you place another machine on top.  The lift can also lower the machine just enough to leave the bed level with the table top, and with an acrylic insert customized for your machine make and model, you have a really large work area.  The left side drawer can be extended completely, as shown in this picture, and covered by more table top to greatly expand your quilting surface.  This is regularly priced at $2748.00, but marked at $1999.00 now.
Do you have a little corner somewhere that would become more useful if you had this desk unit there!  It's designed with computer equipment in mind, with a keyboard tray and a shelf above.  But you could use it for anything you want once you get it home!  Only $50.00 for the 2 hutch pieces.

And here's a little added surprise!  BERNINA fabric!  Make a dust cover for your machine or a bag for accessories.  Drapes for your sewing room?!  Why not!  Get it while it lasts, there won't be any more!

Call 651-429-6500 or 651-429-1039 for questions.

Please Help Us Help Others!

Hello friends!  We are still going strong here at The Patch, still receiving some new fabric -- beautiful fabric!  Don't forget that you get 20% off everything (except Bernina machines which are discounted separately).  That means more than just the fabric!  Stock up on needles, thread, interfacings, books, kits, patterns, machine embroidery supplies, Bernina accessories and more!

We hope you have a very fine Thanksgiving next week!  We will be closed Wednesday and Thursday (11/21 & 22) for our own celebrations.  We will be open again on "Black Friday", 11/23, and there's no need to get up and come shopping at Bear Patch while it's still dark!

Every year at this time, we ask for your thoughtful donations to make Christmas a memorable holiday for our friends and neighbors in need.  Now is the time to turn to all of the good in our lives, and realize that we have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to share.  You can help make our final collection the best ever!

The White Bear Lions Club collects our donations of non-perishable food items to add to the local Food Shelf.  Canned items, boxed meals and nutritious snacks are just a few of the items that can help hunger.  Cash donations are also welcomed.  Load up your wagon or car and come on down!

Toys are the holiday highlight for many youngsters!  We welcome your donations of new, unused toys for kids of all ages!  Imagine the smiling face of a child you don't even know, but who will know that some dreams really do come true when they open their package!  The joy comes back to the giver manyfold.

A few items of clothing are also perfect for our collection!  Mittens, gloves, socks and underwear are all needed especially for the winter months.  You can help take the chill away for anyone out in the elements here.  Try going without those things for just 1 day, and you will not be able to deny the need.  And it's so easy to give!  All sizes, from small to extra large, are needed.

In addition to the White Bear Lake area, we also support the Roseville Shop With A Cop program.  Pull out a little bit of that stash fabric that is just sitting there on the shelf, and make some bright and cheery pillowcases!  Remember you can buy new and fun designs at 20% off!  It doesn't take long, and it means a lot to the kids and the cops.  If you don't know how, we can help with that, or view one of many online videos for directions.  Get together with your friends and combine your talents to create a pillowcase assembly line!  And eat some Christmas cookies, too!

Donations of all of these things need to be in the store by December 14.
