Don’t forget! This January 24, 2013, quilters and fabric lovers around the country are being encouraged to show their support for local, independent quilt shops on the inaugural “Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day”. This event is promoted by The Fabric Shop Network with industry support to raise awareness for the importance of these businesses in their local economy and in the creative pursuits of quilters, sewists, fabric enthusiasts, and crafters everywhere.
There are thousands of independent, local quilt and fabric shops around the country, according to The Fabric Shop Network. Shops will be joining the celebration for the January 24 event by offering special classes, demos, trunk shows, author book signings, savings, and more. The event website, www.quiltshopday.com, will be a hub for information and will feature the stories of many independent shops around the country.
Let us know which quilt shop you will be visiting!
