I can’t believe that September 17 was the last time I posted…
Back then I was still 3 weeks away from opening the quilt shop. I actually thought I had all the time in the world. I was wrong.
We were at the shop until well after midnight on the evening before opening. I don’t think I slept at all from excitement. When I got here in the morning, I felt this weird combination of calm, panic and a little more panic. What if no one shows up? What if they show up and hate everything that I have chosen? What if NO ONE shows up??
Then the most amazing thing happened – People came. Lots of people. Lots of happy and excited people. Opening Day was a huge success!
It’s been a crazy few months and a steep learning curve. January 11 marked my 3 month anniversary as a Quilt Shop. My next post will be all about the fun we’ve had since opening…
Well, I decided that I needed to commit to an opening date to get things rolling. Being a master procrastinator, there was a chance that Keystone Quilts would exist in the “set up” stage forever.
So, the date has been set, people have been invited and there is no turning back now…
This is the announcement that went out to the local quilties and guilds:
We are super excited to announce the Grand Opening of Keystone Quilts in Winnipeg!
October 10 and 11, 2014
10:00 am to 4:00 pm
15-1599 Dugald Road
Please join us for two days of celebration with in-house demonstrations, door prizes and lots of fun.
Keystone Quilts will be carrying quilting supplies of the highest quality, including Kona Cottons (www.robertkaufman.com/fabrics/kona_cotton/), Creative Grids rulers (www.creativegridsusa.com/) and Kai blades and scissors.
We would love to see you and hope that you can join us!
For those of you who can’t join us, you can always shop online at www.KeystoneQuilts.com.
I’m super excited, a little nervous and thinking about fabric orders 24/7. It should be a fantastic opening.
I will definitely post some pics of the festivities and possibly one of me fainting when this actually happens.
I’m going to end with a fabric question:
What is your go-to colour for fabric? If you could also let me know why, that would be fab.
