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!

On Friday, Jan. 9,  2015, we will have a drawing for a Pfaff Smarter 140s Sewing Machine at 3 pm.  This drawing is sponsored by Find X Designs, 719 Carthage St., Sanford, NC.

The 140s, is a nice little portable machine with an integrates needle threader, 6mm adjustable stitch width, PFAFF Presser Foot System, LED light, and a hard cover.  This is a fabulous machine for a beginning sewer, or to carry back and forth to quilting class.

On Saturday, January 10, 2015, we will have a drawing for a Janome Magnolia 7330 at 3pm. This drawing is sponsored by Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shoppe, S. Elm-Eugene St., Greensboro, NC. At 4 pm we will draw for a gift basket donated by all the vendors.

The Magnolia 7330 is the most advanced machine in the Magnolia Line.  Perfect for creating any kind of home decor or sewing project, it enables you to add your personal flair to your home and wardrobe.  You”ll get 30 decorative stitches and lots of automatic features.

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.

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 for lunch to keep you inspired and shopping all afternoon.  If that’s not enough, 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!
