Quilting in St. Jacob's

We have been moving and grooving all over the store this week. I marked down about 200 bolts of fabric and moved them to the sale corner. We are making room for all sorts of new goodies so I was very busy with my red pen slashing prices all over the place. If you pop in the store be sure to check out the clearance corner for a great selection.

While Ann and the Sandys are hard at work at the shop I am off to St. Jacob's for the weekend. St. Jacob's is the Mennonite and Quilting Hub of Ontario and this weekend there are lots of quilt-related shows and activities. Here is the link to all the goings on but I will summarize them below:

The highlight of the festivities is always the NEW HAMBURG MENNONITE RELIEF SALE & QUILT AUCTION. This is one of Canada's largest quilt auctions but is just part of a bigger auction and sale ... if you have never been it is well worth the trip for a one of a kind experience.
