Thread Giveaway and a Mystery

Happy weekend everybody!

Things have been hopping here at the shop and we now have some part time help to allow me to get more creative quilting and sewing stuff done in the studio and work done at the computer.  At the computer, it's mind-numbingly tedious except for when I can pop into social media land and write a blog post or something and can connect with people online. I did start free motion quilting a shop sample the other day, which made me very happy!

One of the things I had my main employee do lately is to fold fabric and make some order from some of my personal stash in the studio. We decided to pare down a bunch of stuff and since we are a retail shop, for the most part, if I don't sell it, I don't use it. Typically, that means I sell what I use because I find it's what works best.

But sometimes there's another reason why I don't use a perfectly good product. Maybe another nearby shop carries it, maybe there's competition from the maker of the product itself, or maybe I just don't have room for a product similar to what I already have.

All this to say, I have some ginormous cones of the thread that I will likely never use. Some I never actually used at all, but were given by other quilters or ordered on a whim a few years ago.



These are all polyester threads in a variety of sizes, great for quilting your quilts. The colors are a bit of a mishmash too. But they are free for the taking to one lucky reader.

Just fill out the simple form below and I will draw a random winner next Friday, March 2nd. I'll even ship it free.




 Also, we are participating in a special mystery quilt project with some other great shops across the US and Canada. If you're interested in the Brown Bag Mystery Quilt, and don't have a participating shop near you, you can purchase one of our bags and we'll mail you the clues! Check out our Brown Bag Mystery Quilt kits at Amy's Quilting Adventures.

  6. Holy smoke...you must be reading my mind. Of al the supplies I don't have much of, thread tops the list, and I'm always so hesitant to purchase a cone because I'm afraid it will be a color I'll never use again, or a thread my machine doesn't like. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win some!
