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. Several quilt shops will be here with quilting supplies. Vendors with wool and floss for stitchery, will be here also. Are you shopping for a sewing machine or a long arm quilting machine? There will be several choices.
New this year, for Friends and Fiberworks is a clothing line. I have already bought several pieces from this stylish, comfortable line. Many of the shirts are made from bamboo. Irregular hemlines, drapes, pleats, and embellishments make these garments a fun addition to your wardrobe.
The Early Bird will get the Worm! Again this year! Early Bird Specials!
Many of the vendors will be featuring early morning specials on selected items from 9 am to 10 am. Many of your favorite vendors will be here and some new vendors that you will love!
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 daily sewing machine drawing and two chances for the big basket that we draw for at the end of the show.
On Friday, we will have a drawing for a Janome sewing machine at 3pm. This drawing is sponsored by Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shoppe, S. Elm-Eugene St., Greensboro, NC.
On Saturday, we will have a drawing for a Pfaff sewing machine at 3 pm. This drawing is sponsored by Find X Designs, 719 Carthage St., Sanford, NC.
In order to win either machine, you must have your entry in the box for the drawing held at 3 pm. You must be present to win. If you really want to win, the first 100 people in the door each morning with get two chances to win that day. All entries collected throughout the day will be entered to win hourly door prizes and the sewing machine drawings at 3 pm each day. You must be present to win.
If you don’t win a machine, then test drive any of the several machines that will be displayed. Sewing machines, embroidery machines and long arm quilting machines with be featured so that you can shop and compare without having to drive from shop to shop.
So get up early, pack your car with your sewing and knitting friends and join us for a fun day. Mrs. Lacy’s Magnolia Tea Room from Sanford will be doing our early morning food and lunch, so you can have a coffee and something delicious to get you started and then some fabulous chicken salad and famous chocolate cake for lunch to keep you inspired and shopping all afternoon.
