Time is Running Out

Can you believe it?  The store opening is just around the corner.  There is still so much to do, but mostly we are just THRILLED!  We are measuring everything against our stash of clothing, quilting and accessorizing fabrics these days.  If we are unhappy with a meal at a restaurant,  we wish we would have purchased a bolt of fabric instead.  If we want ice cream, we use all the dieting power we have and  order a bolt from the Benartex line instead of a cone. . . but then we rememeber a bolt of fabric costs more than an icream cone, so we get ice cream anyways. I mean, who doesn't love ice cream?

In addition to all the bolts we have accumulated, we are also ordering some magical pre cuts, which have earned us several “likes” from everyone on Facebook.  Pre cuts for you non quilters out there are "pre cut" 5 inch squares and 2 1/2 inch strips of fabric to sew together to create a quilt.  That's where they get the name - clever isn't it?

We should start merchandising the store soon, and if you are lucky, we'll share photos so you can dream about the store before you visit.  Make sure when you come to visit you have time to shop around and meet the friendly and fabulous staff.  We will be sure to introduce the ladies of the store soon.  They are all as talented as they are lovely.

Now for the answer to the question everyone has waited for . . . you know what? No, we need to keep you coming back before the store opens, so I am going to keep the updates on the illusive bathroom a secret.   Can’t wait to share more updates next week. 
Store opens October 29th! Be there or be a quilt square!
