Hello my lovelies!
I’ve got a very busy week ahead of me and I would love for you to join me in person or via social media….
I will be the driver of the bus (trying not to crash and burn) for the week on
@52Quilters over on Instagram and @52quilters on Twitter.
I’ll be blogging
on the 52Quilters blog and cross-posting to all of my own social media platforms as well.
(Wish me luck on all this clicking, pasting and sharing!)
Oh, did I forget to introduce myself? Silly me!
I’m Rita… owner of Fabric Please! YOUR online fabric store.
If you want to learn about my journey as an online store owner, head over to my About page on my website. You can sign up for my Newsletter if you want to get in on some sweet sales, giveaways or news about all the fabulous products I have. Sometimes, I even share my “makes” to give you ideas of what you can create. If you would like to learn about my life before I became an e-commerce neophyte, head over to my (sadly forgotten) personal blog Pin Pricked Fingers. Otherwise, if you just want to hitch a ride with me until the next stop… I’d love for you to come along!
This is the perfect week for me to share! I’ll be heading to Quilt Canada (Canada’s version of Quilt Con) for the week and you will get a sneak peek of life “behind the scenes”. I’m a vendor in the merchant mall (peddling my wares) so you’ll be able to see the show from that perspective.
I have my trailer all loaded up and ready to roll!
Set up starts bright and early Tuesday morning and hopefully I’ll get a chance to share a few pics of the chaos of ‘trade-show life’. During the week, I’ll share pictures of some of the gorgeous quilts entered into the juried show. I’ll share pics of quilts for Canada’s Big Quilt Bee, a country-wide initiative to make quilts for kids staying in Ronald McDonald houses while in hospital. There will be quilters donating their time and materials at the show to finish up the last few (hundred) donation quilts. The goal was to make 1000 quilts but I know we’ve surpassed that… I’ll try to get a final number for you during the week.
While I’m away at Quilt Canada, I won’t be able to fulfill my online orders until June 20th
but as a little treat for my 52Quilters followers, I’m offering 20% off storewide
for orders placed between June 12-June 18.
You can use coupon code: 52QUILTERS at the checkout.
(offer not valid for Monthly Subscriptions or Gift Cards)
Thank you so much for coming along with me this week! I hope you enjoy the ride!
Till next time…
