91 miles, but who's counting......

At the end of the week, the 12 shops in the Tri-County Quilt Merchants Association will be having their annual 91 Mile Yard Sale.  It's 91 miles from Bothell where Keepsake Cottage is to the Lynden shops (Folktales, Tangled Threads and Calico Country).  As you probably know, we have our Quilt Tour in March each year, but a few years ago, we added this event in the Fall.  We all take a long, hard look at our Clearance sections, beef them up and see if there aren't some samples and other *stuff* that needs a new home.  We mark them at *yard sale prices* and you get the benefit!  But wait, there's more.....each shop will have one *department* on sale at 20% off.  (Haven't decided yet what we will be doing.)  But wait, there's still more.....for every $10 you spend you get to enter your name in a drawing.  Two lucky winners will get $20 gift certificates from six of the shops and two more lucky winners will get six $10 gift certificates from six shops!  Sew....four winners this year!  As you might guess, the next couple of days is going to be spent digging around in the back room to see what treasures we may have there for you!  Harriet, Jan and I will start tackling that today.  The hours are 9-6 on Friday and Saturday (27th and 28th) and each of the shops has maps for you.  We also have added a new member this year ~ Fabric d'eva in La Conner!

We did manage to get the fabric rearranged last week, but I am still working on getting my samples up in the appropriate places.  Yesterday, I had a lot of fun with a sales rep and ordered some wonderful new fabrics that will start arriving in the next few months!  Plus, we just scheduled a class that Tonya will teach on her "All I Want For Christmas" tree skirt.  It's set for the afternoon of October 26th.  We will get that up on the website as soon as we have times, prices, supply lists, etc.  (If you're interested, let us know because we already have folks on the list.)

Okay....need to get out the door and head over to the shop for another fun filled day of fabric!  Have a wonderful day!!
