Firecracker Raffle Winner

And we have a winner!
Our 25th anniversary sale wrapped up Sunday, July 12.  304 of the Firecracker Fat Quarter Bundles were purchased and we picked a lucky winner from the basket of raffle coupons, Gail Brown.  Congratulations, Gail!  The prize is a $250 gift certificate to Country Treasures!  We send our thanks to every quilter who participated.

Sue loves her firecracker bundles so much she can’t bear to break them down.  Since she was constantly restocking during the sale that means we still have a table-full of firecracker bundles.  Sue is going to continue to sell them at the sale price of 25 Fat Quarters for $25 while they last.  Throughout the summer you will also find fabric at $6/yard, and many discounted kits and bundles on the sales tables in the classroom.

2015 Row by Row Experience – No Winner Yet!
Even though we have had many Rowers dropping in there is still no sign of a winning, completed quilt.
Scent of the Week
We are stocking a new line of scented candles.  Every week Heather will open one of the scents on the front counter for you to enjoy. This week the scent is Honey Dew.
