The following info is from 2014.  Sewing machine drawing info and vendor info will be updated as available.

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 Early Bird will get the Worm!

On Friday, Jan. 10,  2014, we will have a drawing for a Bernette 46 Sewing Machine at 3 pm.  This drawing is sponsored by Loving Stitches of Fayetteville and the other vendors at QFAM.   

The Bernette 46,  is a nice little portable machine with 8 stitches, a thread cutter, snap-on presser feet, and an automatic bobbin winder.  This is a fabulous machine for a beginning sewer, or to carry back and forth to quilting class.

On Saturday, January 11, 2014, we will have a drawing for a Pfaff Hobby 1122 at 3pm. This drawing is sponsored by Find X Designs of Sanford and the other vendors at QFAM. At 4 pm we will draw for a gift basket donated by all the vendors.  

The Pfaff 1122 has a great selection of stitches, including a buttonhole.  It also has easy threading, many accessories and a hard carrying case.

In order to win either machine, you must have your entry in the box  and the drawing will be 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!
