This Saturday, December 7th, local small businesses in Georgetown are pooling our resources to participate in a shopping event. Lisa Scala, of Scala Art Center on West Main Street, is the proprietor of this event, and Quilters' Quarters, though not on East or West Main Streets, is offering door prizes, free fat quarters and friendly company to all those who venture 1/4 mile from the square where East and West meet North Street.
Come in and see what you'll find ... a bin full of FREE donated fleece fabrics (dark, solid colors.) Zippers at VERY low prices, Skeins of embroidery floss at half price, tins-full of old buttons at a penny apiece, fabric cut from the bolt with a 20 to 40% discount .... notions, rulers, cutting mats, rotary cutters and blades ... all at the same discounted rate... and no single use plastic bags!
I look forward to seeing you this weekend ... If you begin at my shop and then work your way to the library around the corner and then on toEast Main, and then West Main, I will give you the event card to have punched by shops you stop into along the way, and then you can drop your card off at Scala's to be entered for the raffle basket ... And to make that easier, you can pick up your punch card and a MAP showing the shops in this event at the start of the day. Quilters' Quarters, just two doors north of the red brick Perley School building, will be opening two hours earlier at 10 am for this December 7th event. Park in the driveway or in the street. (You can ignore the no parking signs ... they only apply Monday through Friday!) Or, as it is a weekend, you can park right at Perley and walk in the clean fresh air from Quilters' Quarters to the library and then on to the Main Street shops!
Please plan on spending a few hours right here in town, visiting your local small businesses and supporting our efforts in keeping Georgetown's downtown a vibrant commercial area where your shopping needs can be comfortably met.
See you soon!
ps: bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots to Quilters' Quarters, and receive an additional free fat quarter!
