Happy (almost) New Year All,
As we close the door on 2011 and reflect at the year that has passed, I'd like to give you a glimpse into what is ahead for 2012.
In January Lynn, Dave, and I will head to Ontario California for the Road To California Quilt Show which is January 19- 22. It's our first time visiting and we hope everyone will be able to come out and see us. Shabby Fabrics can be found in booths 1304 & 1306. I will also be participating in the Roundabout Friday, January 20th from 7:30 - 9:30 PM in the Empire Ballroom at the Doubletree Hotel (immediately adjacent to the Convention Center.). I will be demonstrating my appliqué technique since it has been so popular and well-received. Roundabout features a variety of quilt teachers and vendors giving mini-demonstrations while students rotate on an informal basis between the tables at 10 minute intervals. I hope everyone has a chance to make it to the show, we would love to see all of you there!
Of course we will be making our annual trip to Puyallup, Washington for SewExpo. Lynn, Dave and I will head over the west side of Washington for the Expo March 1st - 4th, and this time we're bringing Tiffany with us! Last year we had quite a few requests for cut yardage of our fabric, and this year we're going to be bringing some of our favorites along! I don't know how many and which collections we will be bringing, but yardage will be available for purchase at our booth. As soon as we have our booth assignments I will make sure to let everyone know where you can find us.
We will of course make the trip to Houston for International Quilt Festival again in the fall.
I will be working on more designs in the coming year and introducing new BOM programs as well. We're starting the year off right with a FREE Mystery BOM which everyone will get to view on January 7th!
I'd like to take a minute and thank you all for a wonderful year of patronage and loyalty. We strive very hard to maintain an exceptional level of customer service. We work to make sure every order is accurate and shipped as quickly as possible. We strive to make sure your block of the month fabric packets are neat and well organized. We work at providing excellent customer service with each email and phone call we receive.
So, here's the fun part! I would love some feedback from all of you regarding what you love about Shabby Fabrics. What is your favorite part of Shabby Fabrics? Is it our fabric selection, our fat quarter sets, our kits, our BOM programs, or is there something I'm missing? Please let me know what you love about Shabby Fabrics and I'll pick three responders who will each win a gift certificate for $20.12 to ring in the New Year!!! So, that means you've got 3 chance to win a gift certificate to Shabby Fabrics!!! Winners will be announced on January 3, 2012 so don't delay!
Thank you all once again and blessings to you always,
