Humble Beginnings Reminder

Our first involvement in a multi-quilt shop adventure is almost here ~ The Humble Beginnings Adventure will occur from  Friday, September 30th through Sunday October 2nd. Have you secured your pass yet?

You can still buy them at Quilters' Quarters for the inaugural price of $6.00, and let me refresh your memory as to what that small fees entitles you to:

  • Six very unique quilt shops run by their owners ... shops that haven't been involved in many or, in my case, any other shop hops to date.
  • Each shop will give to you a unique, free Humble Beginnings Adventure kit that contains enough quality fabric to make two autumn-colored 6.5" blocks. We all have chosen different patterns for our blocks, and when you bring the twelve free blocks together you will have a wonderful small quilt to share during New England's beautiful fall season.

  • Each shop will have its own unique sample quilt made with these twelve blocks and some blender fabrics, and will share their pattern with you.
  • For the first fifty customers buying an Adventure Pass in one of the six shops, a free Tote Bag for Humble Beginnings will be given as well.
  • The shops will have their own special offerings available to Adventurers during the three days of Humble Beginnings. There will be door prizes provided by Moda Fabric at the Quilters' Quarters shop ... and others at each of our shops. There will also be a sewing machine given as one of the prizes!

  • Light refreshments will be offered to our customers as well.
We are very excited to be offering you our first shop hop adventure for such a reasonable price; it is our humble offer to thank you for visiting our shops and helping us to spread awareness of what each of us has to offer.

At Quilters' Quarters, you will find not only quilt quality 100% cotton fabric, but also interfacings, elastic,zippers, buttons, rotary cutters, mats, templates, pins, needles, threads and more for those sewists who create custom clothing. We also feature antique and vintage sewing machines, as we are too small to have a contract with a sewing machine manufacturer ... and what we can do is help you learn to maintain your own vintage machines ~ you will be surprised at how simple restoring and sewing on these beautiful treasures can be. We have been accumulating so many antique Singers, their treadle tables, and reproduction hand cranks for those that have lost their treadles, that we now have enough to offer some to you ... again for reasonable, humble prices!

While it is ironic that the Merrimack Valley Quilt Guild has chosen the same weekend as our Humble Beginnings Adventure (a change made too late for us to alter our printing orders) we're going to be optimistic that our MVQG friends will be able to attend the quilt show in Newburyport and still have time to visit our partner shops in the same weekend. We're sure you will enjoy both!

We have invested a lot of time, energy and materials in preparing for Humble Beginnings Adventure, to provide what we want to be a wonderful, colorful, beautiful New England weekend quilt shop expedition ... please put us on your calendar for those three days. You can visit the special website that
we have set up for your convenience to learn more about our six shops. We've provided maps in the flyer that will help you locate us and plan your route. We've also posted the Humble Beginnings Adventure (and the MVQ show in Newburyport) at Quilters Bug website, and at each of our own sites.

Will you honor us with your company? We promise it will be well worth your while~
