This Thursday, Jan 24 is Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day! It’s an idea sponsored by the U.S. independent quilter’s trade association FabShop Network to support independently-owned quilt and fabric stores worldwide.
We’re participating too! So on Thursday, Jan 24 ONLY
SPEND $25 and receive 1 FREE BATIK FREE FAT QUARTER
SPEND $50 and receive 2 FREE BATIK FAT QUARTERS
SPEND $100 and receive 4 FREE BATIK FAT QUARTERS
PLUS FREE SHIPPING (as always) ON ALL ORDERS!
And if you have a local quilt store, check out the U.S. photo contest. Go visit this week and take a picture. Then enter a contest where you could win a $500 gift certificate — sponsored by the FabShop Network AND a Project Runway Limited Edition sewing machine by Brother USA. (The contest is open to all Canadians, except those living in Quebec [unfortunately].) Check out the rules here.
Take a picture of yourself in the store….then upload to their Facebook page, post to Twitter or Instagram, using hashtag #ILoveMyLQS.
And if you don’t have a local quilt shop, well online stores are here to fill that void! In our 3rd year of business, we have customers from coast to coast to coast. I’ve heard from many of you that you don’thave a local quilt shop – one reason an online store can meet your needs.
We can’t offer a photo contest…. but we can have our own celebration of independent online fabric stores. We’d love to hear from you. Send us an email or post a comment below and tell us what you’d like to see Flare Fabrics carry in 2013. [Make sure we have your email address too!] AND WE’LL SEND YOU A GIFT IN RETURN!
