A day devoted to your local quilt shop!

Saturday, January 25 has been dubbed Local Quilt Shop Day.  It is THE day worldwide when quilt shops should be celebrated. This means, it’s the perfect day for you and your friends to patronize your local quilt shop!

So much occurs behind the doors of your local quilt shop.  It is more than a place where you can buy fabric and become inspired.  It is a place of fellowship! Aren’t some of your closest friends someone you met at a class or event at your local Quilt shop?

It is a place where you can learn about the latest quilting technique, a notion or two which makes your creativity more fun and easier or the latest and greatest in fabric collections or sewing machine technology.  It’s a place where your kids can sign up for a summer camp, engage in the life skill of sewing all while learning resourcefulness and reinforcing math skills.

It’s a place where you can expand your creative horizons, become proficient at a craft you love and share your knowledge and handiwork with others who will ohhh and ahhh over the wonders of transforming flat fabric into something three-dimensional.

It’s a place where they know your name, your story, your family’s hopes and dreams.  More importantly, it is a small business which sustains families that live in your community and often gives back in simple and meaningful ways. 

Did you know that according to NFIB and American Express Research, this year, consumers who were aware of Small Business Saturday (November 30, 2013) reported spending $5.7 billion with independent merchants on the day, an increase of 3.6% from a strong $5.5 billion in 2012? 

So won’t you join the celebration on January 25? Show your support and love for your local quilt shop owner who thoughtfully considers your sewing and quilting dreams when she opens his/her doors. Who knows you want the perfect fabric, to make the perfect quilt which will bring your family fond and loving memories for years, perhaps decades to come.  Click here for more information and get out and shop!
