Who’s having a Black Friday sale? Your local shop!

Posted by on November 28, 2014, in quilting & sewing, ,

The annual Black Friday buzz is upon us. Where will you spend your dollars this year? Big ads from chain stores may be swamping your mailbox and TV, but check your last email or newsletter from your local quilt or yarn shop: we’ll bet they’re having a Black Friday sale too!

Shop local

We’re passing up the opportunity to host our own Black Friday sale. Instead, we’d like to cheer on the thousands of independent quilt and yarn shops hosting special sales this weekend. Why not give them a call and find out what they’re offering?

Your visit on Black Friday (or on Small Business Saturday) is sure to inspire and delight you—your local shop is all dressed up and ready to deal!

Do the signs in these photos look familiar? We’ve provided them to many independent quilt and yarn shops around the country. If you see one in a shop you visit this weekend, snap a photo of it and post it to our Facebook page or tag it on Instagram with #localshoplove. Let everyone know you support your friendly neighborhood shop—and inspire others to do the same.

Together, our combined visits to local shops will make a big impact. Happy shopping!


Many thanks to Susan Webster of Gathering Fabric Quilt Shop in Woodinville, Washington, for allowing us to take these photos in her store.
