June Events.. NQA.. TNNA.. Sunday Open Houses and more!

A little Mod Podge project to display at the shoppe and later store my buntings and other party decor..
We are very excited about some BIG events happening locally... both inside and outside of our little shoppe and we thought we'd help spread the word in case you haven't already heard..

The first is the 43rd Annual NQA Quilt Show at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, June 14-16. NQA is the National Quilting Association and their show is as they state "one of the largest non-juried national quilt shows." They also say, "We are proud to be the longest running quilt exhibition in the country. Each year, we celebrate the creativity, talents and workmanship of all quilters." The Columbus Modern Quilt Guild will be there and if you are an "out of towner" and find yourself in for this event please come by the shoppe! The Convention Center is located at 400 North High Street and we are just 6 miles north at 4610 North High Street! If you have a car it's a simple drive up High or you could jump on the number 2 COTA bus!

The map below shows the straight shot from the Convention Center to us and back... plus there are lots of fabulous places to shop and eat in-between! Feel free to ask us for recommendations. We love to do both of those things!!!

Then later this month is the Needle Arts Trade Show, TNNA, also at the Convention Center, Jun. 23-25. This  show is (unfortunately) an industry only event but at the same time we will be inviting people from the show... designers, bloggers and other shop owners... to come down the street for a special Sunday Sew-In Party and Open House, June 24th from 12-4. We will have tents set up in the parking lot where we will sit and stitch in the shade. Crimson Cup Coffee House will be on site serving up drinks hot and cold. Come join the fun, bring your hand-sewing, quilting, embroidery, cross-stitch and even knitting or crochet.. whatever it is you like to stitch ;) celebrate the art and joy of needlework! Everyone and all needles are welcome!!

Finally, later in the summer we will be hosting at least one or more trunk shows, another Sunday Shoppe Event, contests and various other merrymaking! 

Mark your calendars and stay tuned or sign up for our emails for more details on all the shoppe happenings!

Happy Summer!
