Indian summer days ahead? I read the other day that they’re expecting a warmer, drier fall ahead for our area. Summer finally got here, and while I’m excited that the cooler days of fall are coming, I’m also looking forward to an extended summer. We’ve settled quite nicely into our new location and have been welcoming lots of visitors. We’ve had many positive comments about the openness and brightness, I can’t wait for everyone else to have a chance to visit.
Starting September 1st, we will be hosting a revolving monthly quilt show. Back in July, I started a monthly fat quarter challenge. Each month we will have a special fat quarter available for $2. You will have until the end of the following month to turn in either a finished project or an unfinished project (no larger than 24” x 24”). We will then put them on display for a month and each entry will also receive a free challenge fat quarter for the month that your project will be on display. We will also do a random drawing from the finished entries for a $10 gift certificate and a random drawing from the unfinished entries for a $5 gift certificate. So our first quilt show will be on display for the month of September with a different group of quilts on display in October and so forth. So stop in and see what fun and different things people did with the same fabric.
Once again, we will be participating in the annual coastal Oktoberfest. There will be 11 shops from Astoria to Brookings participating this year. Our theme is “Oregon Bounty”, so each shop will have a free pattern to give away based on this theme. Plus each shop will have an entry form to fill out for a chance to win a $50 in store gift certificate. If you want to make it a full shop hop and visit all 11 shops, make sure to get a passport at your first shop and get stamped (still fill out the store level entry forms - you are eligible for both). We will draw for one winner who will win a $50 gift certificate from each shop. If you were really, really lucky you could win up to 2 $50 gift certificates from each shop. Visit www.quiltrun101.com for a list of shops. Good luck!
Our annual Merchandise Basket Giveaway will be happening over November and December. Receive one entry form for every $25 spent on merchandise (regular and clearance). We will draw one entry from all entries between November 1st and November 19th for Basket #1. Basket #2 will be drawn from entries between November 21st and December 10th. Basket #3 will drawn from entries between December 13th and December 30th.
Yippee quilt shows are happening again this year! I will be vending at several shows this year again and hope to see you there!
