Happy New Year!!!

Here’s to a terrific 2015!
EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!

We are all excited and can finally let you know that we have been chosen as one of the 10 featured shops across the United States for the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of Quilt Sampler magazine, published by Better Homes and Gardens.

Quilt Sampler, published twice a year, has been profiling North America’s top quilt shops for the past 20 years. Quilt shops submit a detailed application of their history, business promotions, charitable work, teaching schedules and design philosophies. A panel of quilt experts led by Ling Augsburg, editorial content chief of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, narrows down the applications to 10 features shops for each issue. The names of the selected shops are kept secret until January 2, 2014 and the shops are officially unveiled at spring International Quilt Market.

Competition to be included in Quilt Sampler is keen. Nearly 3,000 quilt shops are eligible to apply for this year’s honor. My Heritage Fabrics and the other 9 shops chosen were photographed and interviewed by a team from Quilt Sampler, and a multi-page profile of the shop will appear in the issue, which will be available on newsstands on May 5, 2015. Employees of each quilt shop also design an original quilt for the magazine, and the full-sized pattern for the quilt appears in the issue of Quilt Sampler.

We have known since August and have had to keep it quiet – do you know how hard that has been? Especially for those of us (me) who have “loose lips”. It was quite a surprise – especially since we did not submit an application this year. We feel it an honor to have been chosen and feel it is because of you our loyal customers who have supported us through the 6 years we have been open. We will try and keep up the standards that have been shown us by My Girlfriends Quilts, Quilter’s Haven, and the other stores that have been featured in years past from Utah. We are honored to be in their ranks.

We plan to have a HUGE party when the magazine comes out in May. We will also have kits available for the quilt that was designed especially for this issue. We hope you will like it. We get it back after spring market.

Thanks again for your support – and hope that you are as excited as we are!
