National Quilting Day! March 22 2015

Well, that was a ton of FUN!!  

Saturday, March 21st was National Quilting Day and we sure had a great time celebrating!!!    Sue put all fabrics on sale!!  If you bought 2 metres, you got 1 free!   Aurifil thread was 25% off, and Jen had Pfaff accessories on sale too!

 

It was crazy busy for pretty much the bulk of the day as you can see from this aerial photograph.

 

 

Okay, so that is NOT the shop.   BUT it felt like that for the better part of the day.   We even had customers well after closing time!!!

 

The t & t customers, as always, were kind, considerate, polite and very patient when we were so busy being busy.

 

There were no shenanigans like this:

 

 

Dreadful behaviour!

 

During a big sale, there always seems to be one customer who really stands out as having done their homework.   They know what they want and they arrive early enough to get the bolts lined up for us to start cutting and cutting and cutting AND cutting.

 

You get the picture.

 

Well, this time around, this customer shall remain anonymous, but she managed to have her husband pick up her purchases!

 

 

I bet you he was tired by the time he got the goods home.

Thank you, Cheryl Forth, for sending us that pic!!!!

 

And you are wondering, aren't you?   Is there anything left?   Does the shop look like it was swarmed by locusts?

 

 

No worries!

Sue is ALWAYS prepared.

AND without fail, this guy arrives tomorrow...

 

And so will this fellow...

 

 

and last but not least, this fellow....

 

 

Just imagine all the goodness that is yet to come!

 

THANK YOU TO OUR GREAT BIG QUILTING FAMILY FOR CELEBRATING NATIONAL QUILTING DAY WITH US!

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!

Later gators!
