Its Our Anniversary - No Fooling!!!!!
It is hard to believe I took over the shop one year ago! It is still a great and crazy time, but thankfully it is a little less stressful today than a year ago! I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you - you are the reason the store is still here and I have loved getting to know each of you throughout this last year!! I am looking forward to another year of renewing friendships, making new quilting friends and fun activities. I am hopeful that this year I can partner with some other local quilt shops for a fun shop hop!
This week will be filled with fun activities! We will be having door prizes throughout the day each day for a week! I have a special grand prize basket - for every $50 you spend you will receive a chance to win and next Friday (the 7th) I will be drawing to make one lucky winner very happy!!!!
Each day we will be having flash sales - I will email you each night to let you know what is on sale for the next day. I have also cleared out the backroom and we have a heavily loaded flat fold table - Regular prints are $5.99 yard and Batiks are $6.99 a yard for flat folds.
As a Special Anniversary Month opportunity anyone who is participating in a block of the month may come in and purchase their backing fabric for a 25% discount!!! We have fabric in the back room that goes with these programs and so you may choose from this fabric or you may choose any other fabric you desire for the special price.
