One stop shopping for the best vendors from NC and SC. We have tried to bring you the best local and specialty shops available. Save your gas and spend the day shopping with a variety of vendors. This is not a “shop hop” but a shopping stroll. Take your time and browse with all our merchants. You will see lots of fabrics, yarns, books and patterns. Are you shopping for a sewing machine or a long arm quilting machine? There will be several choices.
Again this year! Early Bird Specials! Get to the show by 9 am for specials and chances to WIN! The first 100 people to buy an admission ticket each day will get two chances to win all day long. So, that is two chances for hourly door prizes, two chances for the sewing machine drawing and two chances for the big basket that we draw for at the end of the show.
The Early Bird will get the Worm!
