Almost 200 Quilters Found Our Shop!

Humble Beginnings Adventure was a great weekend ~ we did in fact have more than one hundred seventy quilters visit us on Friday and Saturday, and a dozen or so more on Sunday morning. The rain didn't dampen their enjoyment of the quilt shops they visited. Rick and I, and Ann Lainhart, want to thank all of you who visited us and participated in the shop hop. Each of you received a 'bounce back' coupon that can be used at each of the shops and we look forward to seeing you again!

Sherri of Nashua NH won the 1915 Singer Model 66 Red Eye hand crank sewing machine - congratulations, Sherri. Maureen, Nancy and Kim each won one of our door prizes here at Quilters' Quarters for finishing with our shop and turning their passes in for the drawings.

For our "Feel Good Shopping" program, we  had a very successful return to share with the Georgetown Public School Lunch Program ... between the 10% of last week's sales (larger than typical, due to the Adventurers)  and donations made by local quilters , we were able to send well over two hundred dollars to assist students whose lunch accounts are in arrears this year, providing them with a full lunch rather than a partial one as designated in the new school policy this year. Thank you to everyone who purchased fabrics during the Adventure, and especially to those who made an individual donation! We will continue the donation envelope here at Quilters' Quarters, and Rick and I will continue our donations and invite others to do so as well. Our plan is that on the first Monday of each month, we will be able to drop off money to the school superintendent for those lunches. And now, we're looking for our October recipient's nomination ... any suggestions?

More fabrics continue to arrive ... visit our Quilters' Quarters Facebook page for frequent updates of inventory. I do have Humble Beginnings Adventure kits in stock for those who may have missed the adventure, and have a few finishing kits available as well.
