A Quilter's Oasis Newsletter July 2019 

 Shop News

There have been several changes here at the shop. We recently installed a new computer program for our point of sale system (cash register). It has been a big undertaking with a HUGE learning curve. The staff and I continue to learn more everyday and appreciate every ones patience. 
There are a few changes with the new system:

  • The program will now keep track of your frequent shopper points so we need you to bring in your frequent shopper cards so we can add those points to your name. Your points will be printed on your receipt and keep a running total.  
  • When you go to check out we will be asking for your phone number to search your name, so please make sure we have the correct information. 
  • We are adding your email into the system as well so please make sure we have that correct. 
  • Unfortunately the purchase history that you had on the old point of sale system could not be transferred to the new system. We do have the old system that we can check your history on but that does take some extra time. So if you will be needing to check on purchases made before June 18 please give us some time to locate it. 
  • When checking out with a credit or debit card you will be using the terminal and processing your own card. A few customers have tried to bypass entering their pin number when using their debit card (trying to use it as credit) and the system has denied that. I spoke with our processing company, banks are switching to a new industry standard that will only allow the purchase to process by entering your pin.   This is a security measure by the bank to protect your account.                                                                   

I am excited to introduce our newest and youngest staff member; Lia Peterson, you will see her at the shop on Tuesday and Thursday. She has several years experience working in a quilt shop, she worked at 3 Dudes Quilting until they closed, currently works part-time at Bernina Connection and we are now lucky to have her working here part-time. Lia has a wonderful eye for color coordinating, is an experienced quilter, and enjoys assisting customers.  Please welcome Lia to the Oasis staff. 

 

 

 

NEW ARRIVALS

 

 

It is really looking a lot like Christmas here in the store. Holiday fabrics have been arriving regularly.  Here is just a sampling of what we have received. 
With the Arizona temperature in the triple digits it's the perfect time to spend sewing those holiday projects while keeping cool in your air conditioned sewing space or spend time here in the shop at one of our upcoming open sew days.

On-line Ordering

Due to the new point of sale system the ability to make purchases on our website is currently not available. You will receive a message stating that the check-out process has been disabled. 
If you would like to make a purchase, we are taking phone orders.
I am working with a designer on a new and fresh website with on-line purchasing available. This new website will be up and running in the next 4 - 6 weeks. 
I apologize for any inconvenience and again we are taking orders over the phone until the new site is up.
