Celebrate your local quilt shop!


Hi everyone,

MIA-Marija here…finally!!

Hope you are all doing great in this still somewhat NEW year and maybe even have a few resolutions intact? 🙂 Not the case with me, but hey – I didn’t even make any! Clever, huh? No not really, but I did declare to myself a “word-of-the-year” to be DISCIPLINE. Well…we can talk about this over pages and pages here, but that is for another time. Today, I want to tell you about much more important thing:

Thursday, January 24th is National VISIT YOUR LOCAL QUILT SHOP DAY!!!


Yes, yes my friends – we need to go visit, shop, have fun – and it is all legitimate and justified!! YAY!!

But wait – that is not all! Industrious, creative quilting community made it into a real, big, national party – there is a web-site , a Facebook page  and even a great photo-contest for all of us with potential to win big! And yes – many of our wonderful, local quilt shops are listed on that page, will be open longer hours and have some goodies to celebrate with you – what is not to like?! You can find the list of shops on the web site, but even if the shop is not listed – they are HERE, local, full of great inspiration and friendly people who share our passion for creation – how lucky are we to have so many around here! 🙂

So – GO, GO, GO! Have fun and take some pictures!! Of course, if you are not into all those social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) in order to submit you contest entry – feel free to send them to me (vujcicms@hotmail.com ) and I will be happy to submit them for you! (just send them by about 11 pm, deadline is soon after). Hey, maybe we can have a little contest among ourselves here, with some blog candy/giveaway? Hmmm…not a bad idea! What do you think?

In any case, the point is to celebrate our local treasures.

I-Love-My-LQS-200x250Picture above is the official poster, you can find it and print it here . Many quilters use it to take a picture with that, in their local shop – really fun!

Hope to see you Thursday night in our local quilt shops wanderings!


PS – you all know I teach in Threads of Time (one of our local treasures), so I started there – visit my blog to see a photo tour! This Quilt Shop Day inspired me to continue this, to visit all other shops sometime soon and do a photo tour – can’t wait! (shhh..don’t tell my credit card! 😉  )
