Originally from Nebraska, I have lived in Oz since 1989. I love to quilt in my spare time. My days are filled with family and friends and of course, the 'day job'. My list of 'to do one day' seems to get longer all the time... but my motto is 'Never give up! Never surrender!' I will, one day, use everything in my stash... you believe me, don't you?
Short on stitching
supplies? Rotary blade got an annoying nick? Just emptied a spool? Need a
fabric fix? Plan to right all your quilting wrongs one week from today—Thursday,
January 24, 2013. It’s the first annualVisit Your Local Quilt Shop Day!
You are vital to
the life of your local quilt shop. You’re the reason they exist. And you’re the
reason they stay in business. We all help keep our LQS’s alive! Round up your
quilting BFF’s for a day of shopping fun. If your friends need a reason to
commit, try one of these:
·“Your UFO pile is as tall as you are.
How about we go shopping with the goal of finishing one?”
·“I heard that somewhere, somehow,
some place… there’s a baby without a quilt.”
·“It’s decided. We’ll go to lunch and
a movie. Except instead of the movie and the lunch, we’ll go fabric shopping.”
·“I read that quilting-health day is
the new mental-health day.”
·“We’re going to the quilt shop
together on Thursday, okay? Let’s try not to get in trouble this time.”
·“Let’s get inspired!”
Thursday’s the day to show your support—mark
January 24 on your calendar! Let your local quilt shop know how much you love
them, and that you appreciate what they bring to your neck of the woods. Pay a
visit and tell them you’re glad they’re around!
