Are you ready to visit your local quilt shop? January 24, 2013, is the day that quilters and quilt shop owners have been waiting for. It’s the day you can show your support for your local quilt shop and let them know how much you value them.
Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day 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.
