Last shows of the Year

Oct 15, 2015

In just five weeks we will complete the last of our quilt shows for the year—this means I will be at the shop Wednesday through Saturday, much to the dismay of our puppy (although he is getting better and will actually get out of the truck now when we arrive).
Maybe that will allow me to get rid of this cold I picked up while doing a half marathon walk in Manassas Battlefield National Park. Should have watched the weather forecast and realized the last half would be in the rain!
When thinking about the end of the shows for the year I also realize inventory time is fast approaching—wow do I hate that! Because we have just a fat quarter of some fabric or maybe a yard or two we want to hopefully make it easier to count the inventory this year and thus are having a pre-inventory clearance sale at our bricks and mortar store—1075 main Street, Volant, PA.
November 27, 28, and 30
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Fabrics are $8 per yard
Panels $5 and $7 each
Notions and Gifts 40% off
Stamped Embroidery 50% off

We may also have an online sale but sometimes it is difficult for me to multi-task!

Our last October Show is this weekend at The John S Knight Center in Akron, OH. This is the first Mutton Hill Quilt show presented by the Summit County Historical Society. Please stop by and support the society. They will have over 200 quilts on display, a special display of historic quilts and a show of current quilt creations, lectures, and gift basket raffles.
In November we will be in Washington, PA for the Martha Washington Quilt Guild Show and in Lebanon, PA at the Lebanon Quilters Guild Show. If you are in the area stop by any of these shows.
To finish the year we will participate in The Family Festivals Christmas Craft show at the Monroeville Convention center just outside Pittsburgh. This show we will sell many of our samples but no fabrics or patterns.
For the past year we have been part of a couple groups on facebook: Quilting Classified and Quilters Classifieds. Both are groups to buy and sell fabric. Some of the fabrics I receive are listed there before we have a chance to get them onto our web site. You must request to join these groups but I think you will like them and if you are in search of a discontinued item you can list a picture and ask if anyone has the fabric.
We have some received some great fabrics:
Mimosa from Quilting Treasures
Sewing Fabrics from Blank and Kanvas for Benartex
Butterfly Garden from Benartex

Happy Autumn and Keep on Quilting,
