The first Interlake - Eastman Quilt Shop Hop that took place last weekend was a great success from our perspective and all the feedback we heard from participants was positive. We had 60 visitors over the two day event and asked the last two on Saturday to help us with the door prize draw.
And the winners are:
Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who was able to participate in this event.
35 quilters made the rounds to all 6 participating shops and were eligible to enter for the Grand Prize. We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Grand Prize is Edna Bennett! Congratulations Edna.
We will be talking with the other shop owners about whether this is something we should do again. If anyone has thoughts on this or suggestions about how it could be better please let Helen (or any of the other shop owners) know.
Thanks, and now, back to work.
We are having a big sale to commemorate our first ever shop hop - 20% off all instock items. WOW!
Join us for some refreshments and enter for a door prize draw.
Three days until the Interlake - Eastman Quilt Shop Hop. All shops will be open from 9-5 on Friday and Saturday. The grand prize, which you can enter to win if you visit all 6 shops can be seen at Fabriculous in Gimli. Look for some great in store specials this weekend.
We are declaring a holiday on Thursday, August 1st because, well, it's SUMMER! We will be back at it again on Friday. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
Helen is away today (July 17th) helping with set up at the Springfield quilt show. Chewy is in charge of the store but don't expect good advice.
Also, we will be closing at 2 PM on Saturday (July 20) to attend the Springfield quilt show in Dugald.
We've been invited to be one of the vendors at the Sunflower Festival Quilt Show in Altona. We've never been there before and are looking forward to spending a weekend in Altona. And, of course, since we will be there we won't be here and the Lockport studio will be closed.
