Terrific Thursday - July 18
Carolina Celebrations Shop Hop Preview
See what Carolina Celebrations, our state-wide Fall shop hop, is all about this Thursday, July 18, 10:00-6:00 pm. That's the first day to purchase your shop hop passport packet - AND you'll get a stamp that day! We will reveal our Carolina Celebrations Shop Hop project, Colors of the Carolinas, (designed by our own Linda Turner and Florence Prather!) and have demos on the technique used to make our project. There will be free goodies, special sales, and prize drawings just for our Shop Hoppers!
Your passport packet includes your passport and lanyard and the Carolina Celebrations book of full color patterns for each shop project. Go to each shop on the list and get your passports stamped and collect the instructions for each shop's block.
To kick off the fun everyone who purchases their Carolina Celebrations passport on July 18 will receive a free Quilt Patch goody. You will also be entered to win a beautiful Moda charm pack! This is the only day you can get your passport stamped before the shop hop begins October 3-12. October is the perfect time of year to visit Carolina's finest quilt shops!
If you've never done a shop hop you need to do this! A shop hop is when you go to a group of designated shops (we have 14 in this hop), get your shop hop passport stamped, collect a block pattern from each shop to make the shop hop quilt, buy stuff on sale especially for Shop Hoppers, and enter drawings to win cool quilty prizes!

Christmas Project Party A Huge Success!
Thank you for coming out to our Christmas in July Party last Saturday! We had a terrific turn out and shared a ton of fabulous holiday gift giving ideas.
Friends found themselves humming to the sweet sounds of holiday music while they shopped for their holiday inspirations. And homemade chocolate chip and ginger cookies, brownies, and peppermint bark were enjoyed by all!
Everyone who came received a die cut Christmas stocking kit, and anyone who found our hidden-in-plain-sight Holiday Spool received 20% off an item on their next visit.
Congratulations to drawing prize winners Margaret Proctor and Debra Lewis - they each won a Moda charm pack! Our grand prize of a 20 fat quarter pack of Luminous Lace metalics from Quilting Treasures went to Lezlie Eidson. Congratulations! And thank you all for coming to our party!
