This weekend starts the new show season. I hope everyone had a restful holiday season and is ready to start shopping and sewing again! Below is the information that was sent to us by the promoters. Read it all the way through. There are sewing machine giveaways and Early Bird Specials.
I will be giving away a special kit to all customers that shop with me from 9am to 10am and spend more than $20. This offer is good on BOTH days.
The next show is The Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace in Sanford, NC.
The date and time of the show is Friday, Jan. 11, 2013 and Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013, from 9 am – 5 pm at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center, 1801 Nash St., Sanford, NC 27330. Admission is $5.00. This show is all about Quilt and Yarn Shops! This show is a celebration that features small businesses and the people that run them. Join us for a day of creativity, fabric, fiber, and food. We have tried to feature the best vendors, with the best selection of merchandise available. We have assembled more than 30 vendors for your shopping pleasure. If shopping for fabric and yarn is not enough to entice you to Sanford, then let me tell you about our food! Mrs. Lacy's Magnolia Tea House will be doing our food this year. She will have wonderful sweets and coffee ready as you arrive and fabulous sandwiches and more sweets during the day.
The Early Bird will get the Worm!
On both days we will be giving away a sewing machine at 11 am and a gift basket at 4 pm. We will also be giving away a grand prize basket at 5 pm on Saturday.
On Friday, Jan. 11, 2013 we will have a drawing for a Bernette 46 sewing machine at 11 am. This drawing is sponsored by Loving Stitches of Fayetteville and the other vendors at QFAM. The Bernette 46 is a nice little portable machine with 8 stitches, a thread cutter, snap-on presser feet and an automatic bobbin winder. This is a fabulous machine for a beginner, a grandchild, or to carry back and forth to quilting class.
Loving Stitches has also donated a gift basket, valued at $200 that we will draw for at 4 pm on Friday.
On Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013 we will have a drawing for a Pfaff Hobby 1122 at 11 am. This drawing is sponsored by Find X Designs of Sanford and the other vendors at QFAM. The Pfaff 1122 has a great selection of stitches, including a buttonhole. It also has easy threading, many accessories and a hard carrying case.
At 4 pm on Saturday, we will give away a gift basket donated by all the vendors.
In order to win either machine, you must have your entry in the box by 11 am each day and the drawing will be held shortly thereafter. You must be present to win either the machine or the gift baskets. If you REALLY want to win, be one of the first 100 people in the door each morning and get two chances to win that day. All entries collected throughout the day will be entered to win hourly prizes and the gift baskets at 4 pm each day.
The Grand Prize Basket will be drawn on Saturday at 5 pm from all the names and phone #s/emails collected during both days. The winner will be notified and arrangements made to collect the prize.
So plan to get up early and spend the day with us, shopping, eating and just having fun. You might even win a prize, and if that’s not enough, many of the vendors will be featuring early morning specials on selected items from 9 am to 10 am.
Hope to see you there!
