Saturday Sampler Show and Tell

I just love hosting our Saturday Sampler event. I get to see and visit with so many of you. We always reserve a portion of our block of time together for customer "show and tell". I always love to see what our customers have created and this past Saturday I was particularly excited about the quilts that were displayed. Ann Prince had completed her top for the beautiful batik quilt, Celtic Wave, by Judy Niemeyer. It was just incredible. This quilt was followed by many others, all of them great accomplishments, but I was also impressed with Priscilla Ordway's beautiful patriotic quilt. We've included pictures so that you can enjoy them too!

Tag Sale at Tiny Stitches

We certainly enjoyed celebrating the Academy Awards at the shop last week. We gave Oscars to the most deserving quilt samples, gave many of our customers a chance to be a famous "star", and several of our Quilt 'Till You Wilt ladies dressed up in true movie star style to celebrate. What fun!

We busied ourselves this past week with processing lots of new trunk shows, fabric, books and patterns as we make the shop ready for Shop Hop, March 24-17th. We've even reorganized our book area to make it easier to see all of our great new titles.

We began running a "Tag Sale" at the shop on Tuesday, March 1st. We've identified select bolts and quilting books from all areas around the store that we've put on sale at 25% off the marked price. These "chosen" bolts and books have a colorful tag on them. Be sure to look for these bargains all around the shop. It's the "Where's Waldo" of the quilt world!
