Seen at Show- MAQF ’22


even though I’ve been in business for 18 years, I still get a big kick out of seeing our customers carrying bags they’ve made from our patterns! And what better place to “spy” these customers than at a retail quilt/craft show, right?

And even though the attendance at these shows is down considerably right now due to ongoing concern over the Covid 19 pandemic, we still managed to “spy” SEVEN of our bags “walking the floor” of the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival last week!

So let me show you!

And finally, here’s Elaine Comer & her Walkabout Wallet!

But here’s the deal…

I had an interesting conversation with a couple of our customers at this show who suggested that I think about giving a 5% show discount to every customer who comes to our booth carrying a bag made from one of our patterns! And this sounds like it could be a fun marketing idea to me, which makes me wonder… What do YOU think of this idea?

    I think that is an excellent idea. We would get to see more lovelys, and they would get a discount. You are never close enough for me to come see your booth in person, so I like seeing all the bags people have made.

    Great idea. It is always inspiratioal to see what others are making. Beautiful bangs and I love this tiny piecing by Bunnie Cleland.
