Iris Festival Challenge

Well, we've had a busy week for sure. The Iris Festival Challenges are all in & were judged by the Chamber of Commerce.
I'll show you a peek, but you really must stop in to see them. They're magnificent. What amazing talent we have among our customers!
Iris Challenge Fat Quarters were purchased with rules & entry forms. There were size constraints, & each has to include a visible piece of the Challenge fabric. The entries are all hung in the shop now, & will be up until June 1.
We'll announce the winner of a $50 gift card Saturday at the Iris Festival.

These two are front & back of a two-sided entry.

Quilt Show Success!

Here's our booth at the Best of the Valley Quilt Show this weekend. We had a great time & saw lots of friends. After a year, we feel like maybe we're getting the hang of this vendor both business.
The quilts are phenomenal. I'll take some quilt pics tomorrow. It's just been too busy so far. Notice the groovy green light over our booth? They replaced it last night & today I felt like I was under a spotlight all day! It was great.
We took lots of batiks, animal prints, Very Hungry Caterpillar, Yo Gabba Gabba, brand new Christmas, local olives & citrus fruit, pomegranates, some trendy new gray & yellow, Hoffman Challenge, & some soft new Moda prints.
The Thimble Art patterns are flying out of the booth. Everyone is loving these dimensional patterns.
We have some new Pockets a Plenty sample bags, thanks to our teachers & customers. These bags are so versatile & everyone who makes one ends up making a bunch!
So it's been a good show, with one day left. Tomorrow we're open 10-4. Drop in & say hello.

Thank you for a wonderful party!

We thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone last weekend. Lots of friends stopped in to have a cupcake & say hello. It was a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone who came & sent goodies, balloons, or flowers. Everything was beautiful!
Debbie won the first door prize, so she got to choose. If your ticket was drawn & you weren't still at the shop, we called you. So check your messages.
Everyone blew a birthday whistle to see if their discount would be 15% or more. It was fun, but a little touchy when the threats started! ;)Don came to our Grand Opening last year & bought this cross stitch kit. He came back Saturday to show off his beautiful work. He did a great job.
Crave Bakery made the cupcakes for us. Wasn't that sweet? People are still talking about how delicious they were. And a customer, Misty, made this amazing mermaid cake. It's so cool!
Thank you to everyone for a fabulous first year! We appreciate all our wonderful customers & friends very much. You've really made this year one to remember!
