91 Mile Yard Sale

It's that time again!  I am so proud to be a member of the "Tri County Quilt Shop Association."   We are a group of THE BEST quilt shops anywhere!  We are all located in Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom county.  We have banded together for over four years now, bringing some fun events for you all to take part in. 
I think many people think that quilt shops are in direct competition with each other.  I may come as a surprise to many that it is just the opposite.  We work together to make this a great destination for quilt  shopping.  I am very proud of all the wonderful quilt shops in our area.  They really are some of the best in the country.  the thing that most people notice is that we are sooooo different.  We hardly ever carry exactly the same thing.  And, even if we did have the same line of fabric, it's always fun to see the different things we may do with it.  The other thing I just love is that I can always call up one of my buddies and have a good talk about things we have concerns about.  It's nice to have someone that really understands the problems of running a quilt shop.

This Friday and Saturday is one of our fun events!  We call it "The 91 Mile Yard Sale"  That's cause it's just about 91 mile from the farthest shop south to the farthest shop North. Stop by your closest shop and pick up a map of all the shops and get out on the road!  All of our shops have been doing some "spring cleaning"  we will have lots and lots of clearance fabrics, books, patterns, kits and all kinds of other goodies that need to find a good home.  At Aunt Mary's we will be selling all that for up to 55% off!  We will also have all yardage at 15% off.  Whew!!!  

Just to make it a little interesting.  For every $20 dollars spent in any of our shops during the "Yard Sale" you will get an entry into a drawing.  Some lucky winners will win either a $20 gift certificate to EACH  of our shops, or a $10 gift certificate to each of our shops.  That's $260 or $130 shopping sprees!  Cool Hu?
I hope everyone can make it!  See ya then!!!
