In celebration of Memorial Day on Friday May 24th and Saturday May 25th, Footprints Quilt Shoppe will have 25% off on select items. The sale will include two patriotic fabric lines: Old Glory Gatherings by Moda and Stars & Stripes 2 by Stonehenge. I will also have 25% off books - in-store and on-line at checkersdist.com. I will place a special order with 50% prepayment and you will receive the 25% off at delivery.Memorial Day is when I start to get into my patriotic spirit. I have done numerous patriotic projects in the past and have "unpacked" 5 finished and 2 just about finished projects consisting of a lap quilt, wall hangings and tabletoppers. Summer is a time of year when it is not easy to commit to indoor activities so I have decided to do something a bit different. Choose 3 Saturday's between June 29th and August 10th from 9-11AM to make one or two of these patriotic projects. The fee is $25.00 and includes 3 classes and whichever pattern(s) you choose to do in class. There are 6 seats available on each Saturday, therefore, you must choose your 3 dates when you sign up.Here's hoping for some sunshine to kick off the summer season celebrating with family and friends.
