Hello Everyone,
Our Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace show is just 10 days away.  We hope that you and all your quilting friends are planning to attend.
You know how company always asks, “What can I do to help?”.  Here is what you can do…Please post these posters and postcards on your Facebook and Instagram pages.  Share them with your friends and quilt guild members. Vendors really need your support.

We can be safe and shop at the same time.  We will follow all the local guidelines.  Just like the NC guidelines, while it is not mandated, we recommend that you wear a mask while indoors.  I realize people have strong feelings about this.  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.

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.

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.

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.
