LOCAL QUILT SHOP DAY
Saturday, January 23, 2021
Greetings from The Fabric Shop Network! Here is a quick update on our association efforts to promote Local Quilt Shop Day 2021. To say that we are excited about Local Quilt Shop Day—coming up on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2021—is quite an understatement. After this challenging year, we cannot say goodbye soon enough! The Fabric Shop Network team is working to create global excitement for Local Quilt Shop Day 2021. Our efforts are targeted to kick off the New Year of 2021 with the most shared, chatted about, and beloved Quilt Shop Day event ever.
Quilters can read about Local Quilt Shop Day across the United States and in some parts of Canada in The Country Register. The Fabric Shop Network and The Country Register co-authored an article that encourages all quilters to SAVE THE DATE and plan to visit their local quilt shop in person or online on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2021. The article also grants "permission" for all quilters in every local area to purchase something quiltable and wonderful for themselves. After all, it is a nationally recognized holiday. (Husbands will understand!)
U.S. CEREMONIAL PROCLAMATIONS
The Fabric Shop Network believes that Local Quilt Shop Day should be proclaimed across the United States. That's why our team worked this week to contact governor's offices, requesting an official proclamation in celebration of Local Quilt Shop Day. We learned that each state has different guidelines to follow for proclamations for extraordinary state or local events. While we know that Local Quilt Shop Day deserves special recognition, we are waiting with our fingers crossed to find out if state agencies will grant our requests to proclaim it.
LOVE LETTER CONTEST
The Fabric Shop Network will be sponsoring a LOVE LETTER Facebook Contest for Local Quilt Shop Day. We believe that thousands of quilters across North America share our affection for local quilt shops. It seemed natural to ask them to post a note of gratitude to their favorite local quilt shop.
To participate, quilters simply need to affirm their undying love for their favorite local quilt shop and post a love letter at Quilt Shop Day
