Welcome to Twisted Sisters Website


NOTE:  We will be closed July 28-31, Tuesday through Friday.  We will be open 10:00 - 4:00 on Monday (July 27) and then re-open on Saturday (August 1).  Our closure has nothing to do with COVID-19 - we need to handle some business and need time off to do so.  


COVID-19 sure has turned our world upside down, hasn't it? But, as expected, quilters around the world used their talents and skills to help fight this pandemic by making masks for first responders, doctors, nurses, family members, etc. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Our customers and staff are extremely important to us and as we work through the effects of this pandemic, we need to make a few changes in our operation, which are listed below.


HEALTHY AND SAFETY
We are very concerned for everyone's health and safety and highly encourage all customers to wear protective masks. We will not require them, but do encourage you to protect yourself and others by wearing one.

We ask that you try to remain 6 feet from each other while in the store.

If you are feeling ill, please don't come into the store.

We will take extra steps in cleaning the store on a daily basis.


UPDATED STORE HOURS 
Due to the Covid virus our hours have changed to 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM, Monday thru Saturday. Our late Mondays have been cancelled.


CLASSES 
We are beginning to schedule classes staring in August. All classes will be listed on our website. We will be limiting the maximum number of students to 5 to enable the students and instructor to have more space between them and so you do not have to wear a mask.


FEATURE OF THE MONTH 
Our feature for the month of July is Panels. All panels will be 20% off during this month.  If you are purchasing a panel via our online store, use the code word Panels for coupon code.


EAST TENNESSEE SHOP HOP
This event will begin on Monday July 6 and end on Saturday July 25. There are 10 stores participating this year. We do have the Passports for sale. Shop Hop kits will be selling for $7.00 and the fabric will be $12.00 a yard.  All shops will be selling these items for the same price.

Hours for the Shop Hop are 10:00-5:00 Monday thru Friday. Saturdays we will be open 9:00-5:00 as listed on the Passport.

All staff will wear a face mask. During Shop Hop we are requiring ALL customers to wear a mask. We will limit the number of people who enter if there are too many in the store. Also, if you are planning to arrive by bus, or carload, we may have to limit the number of customers in the store, so some of your party may have to wait to come in...but, we'll get you all in as fast as we can.

We will not be doing a demo, but will have storyboards showing our product. We will have someone in the classroom to stamp your Passport and give you our free gift.

We look forward to you participating in Shop Hop this year and appreciate your understanding and patience with all these new rules.


2020 GRUNGE CONTEST - this year Moda Fabrics & United Notions are celebrating their 45th Anniversary with a Grunge Contest. Quilters are to create a project using ONLY Grunge fabrics, and submit their entry to their local fabric shop for display and voting. Each shop will submit their most Grunge-tastic quilt to Moda for judging.  The contest starts February 1 and you can submit your entry to Twisted Sisters the last week of August. In-store voting will be September 1-7.  We have a list of the rules and regulations in our store.   We carry over 130 different bolts of the Grunge and Grunge Dots fabric.


NOTE:  We do sell Quilters Select Rulers.  However, since they are difficult to ship they are not listed in our on-line store; they are sold in the store only.


PILLOWCASE CHALLENGE 

We are starting to collect pillowcases towards this year's donations. Our goal is 1,000 pillowcases and they will be donated to Mission of Hope, Blount County Family Promise, Isaiah 117 and a few other non-profits.  Thanks to your generosity after reaching last year's goal, we have 350 towards this year's goal.

GOAL:                           1,000
RECEIVED:                      400
DIFFERENCE:                 600
