Quilt Patch Party weekend!

I feel like I have to start each blog with a confession....yes, I am a crappy blogger! Ok. There. Done. Now lets move on!
I always feel like I don't have a lot to say (if anyone shows this to my husband, i will deny, deny, deny that I wrote this!!) so once again, struggling to find a topic that might be of some interest, and around here the hot topic has been....The Quilt Patch Party!! If you've not attended or even HEARD  of it....I don't know where you've been!! It's the hottest (and good lord I do mean HOT!! Like really...a store full of menopausal women...whew!!) sale we host. And we only do it every second year. We started doing it in conjunction with the Moose Jaw Quilters guild biennial quilt show, (which is another fabulous reason to be in Moose Jaw April 27th!) and it's just been an absolute blast!
So this is the plan for this year (cause every year, we like to add or subtract things, based on our customers reactions!)

First of all - weekend specials. And I do mean SPECIAL with a capital S!! Truly. I've convinced Jeanne that for this weekend (April 26th, 27th and 28th) we will move all of sale closet (those of you who love shopping our sale closet will appreciate this!!) upstairs to our second floor and ADD tons and lots more goodies for you to enjoy throughout the weekend!! We will be going through our current fabrics, moving lots of them upstairs and they will be 60% off!!!
Heres just a little wee hint:

Ok, whatever you do....DO NOT tell Jeanne I gave you that hint!!! This weekend is about super top secret secrecy!! And HOT deals!! Ok, here's a few more things I do know...thread, some notions....some kits!! Patterns, and even some books. Those are just the weekend specials.
THEN....we move onto the QUILT PATCH PARTY SPECIALS.......

So to kick off the QP party - we are hosting a (get this!!) TAIL GATE PARTY! oh ya! FREE hot dogs, good looking men cooking them (ok, alright, bear with us - our husbands were the other ones who would work for free) and while you are enjoying those free hot dogs, standing in line (cause goodness knows - you DO want to be the first in the door to ensure you get some of these hot deals (more on those in a minute!!) we will periodically popping out between 6pm and 7pm and treating you!!! Thats right, we have giveaways and treats planned! You are gonna have sooooo much fun!!

Now, onto the doors opening for the QUILT PATCH PARTY at will be handed a flyer listing all the specials - and they are amazing - I mean, hold onto your hat amazing!!! Like start the car, you might feel like you are stealing amazing!!! And don't worry - this is not going to be stuff you just paid full price for 3 hours ago - oh no....we wouldn't do that to you! This is fresh product that we brought in and packaged beautifully just for you! Oh ya and that b*&^% racing you to the specials, so you'd best get your game face on and get your butt to them!!
Ok here's a hint......

And honest to pete - if I hear that even ONE of you has told Jeanne I was dropping hints.....I'm gonna be in some big trouble.....and I'll be forced to take you down with me! will be fabric bundles, maybe a notion or two. The quilt we will be unveiling for an amazingly awesome price for 2 hours only...and wine!! The wine will be the trophy after you've fought off all those other crazy, deal loving quilting ladies!

And no worries, we will once again have 2 till stations opened to help alleviate the traffic congestion.
Oh yaaaaaa, and the draw.......cant forget THAT!! You can put your name in for our draw ( one entry per person please) and at 8:30 that evening we will make the draw. The basket is usually worth a $500 value, but 2 years ago - Jo forgot to stop and the basket ended up having a $600 value!!! AND the best part is - you don't have to be in attendance to win, but if you are......we will toss in  a $100 gift certificate!!

So.....plan to attend. Try to remember that it REALLY WILL be wall to wall women. and depending on the weather, it might be hot! But, we will try and make it fun and the deals so fabulous that none of that other stuff matters! See you soon!


  1. Would love to come, I am heading over to Yorkton that weekend, how far away are you from there! Sounds like a lot of fun, I always visit your store when you come to Calgary and I have your first book!
    Lovely projects, by the way I enjoyed your last post about the quilt police as well LOL. See you soon!

    1. Hey Sue, we aren't that far from Yorkton - an hour and half maybe.

  2. I have to agree that it a great time! I was fortunate enough to win your fabric for a year at one of these events a few years back!! Our guild can not make it this year as we are doing a Canadian exhibit of our quilts at the Glendive Quilt Show the same weekend!! Will be missing a great time in Moose Jaw I am sure!!
