Hello Everyone,
Where did last week go? I had a mammogram.  (Let me take this opportunity to remind you to get one, if you haven’t had one in a while. Happy to report, mine was normal.)  We cooked a Christmas meal at church.  We delivered Angel Tree gifts.  Our Mom had her 93rd birthday.  We wrapped gifts.  We baked.  We cleaned.  (Well, not much cleaning.) And last but not least, bolts and bolts of “Dimple” arrived from Andover fabrics.  I can’t wait for you to see all the colors in this excellent blender line.  They brought it back and we brought every color, 99 pieces arrived.  The UPS guy delivered 9 boxes of fabric. We are making the most beautiful packs out of it.

In addition, while all of this preparation is going on, we are putting the finishing touches on our Vendor shows this January.  Mark your calendars now.  Save the dates.
Our first show in our Marketplace show in Sanford, NC on January 14 and 15, 2022.  See the poster above.

Our second show is the Extravaganza show in Statesville, NC on January 28 and 29, 2022.  Vendor list is below.  Keep scrolling.

We have several new vendors this year.  If you are shopping for a new machine with Christmas money, then you definitely need to come to our shows.  You can shop several different brands of sewing machines and long arm machines.  Our shows are like a shop hop except you just drive to one place.  Spend a day strolling our aisles, visiting each shop.  There will be delicious food available in the lobby.

We can be safe and shop at the same time.  We will follow all the local guidelines.  We recommend that you wear a mask. I realize people have strong feelings about that.  I don’t want any confrontation about this.  The bottom line is, vendors need this opportunity to do their business.  We lost about 30% of our vendors during the last shutdown. Many won’t survive another shutdown.  Please help us spread the word about the show by posting this postcard on your Facebook page and sharing it with your guild members and quilting friends.  

Here’s some good news – Everyone is getting $1 off admission.  $5 entry for everyone.  Just come.           You don’t have to print off anything for your discount.

At each show, each day at 3pm we will have a Grand Door Prize drawing.  I’ll tell you more about that later.
