September PMQG sponsor happiness!

Hi everyone, just wanted to share some cool things a couple of our fabulous guild sponsors are up to this month - just show your 2012 PMQG member card when you're checking out to get your discounts.

Pendleton plaids!

First, Pendleton Woolen Mill Store is having a fabulous sale on ALL of their wool fabric through September. Here are some of their new ombre plaids arranged in pretty FQ stacks - check out the lovely wool quilt our own Michelle Freedman made with them! We'd love to set up a special shopping day for members during the sale, so keep an eye on the blog for more details.

Colette Patterns party at Modern Domestic!

And Modern Domestic is hosting a Colette Patterns fall line release party - 20% off the new line, prizes and giveaways, and an extra chance to win if you're wearing an original Colette design. Sounds heavenly! Another chance to meet up with PMQG friends...

Hope to see you at both of them!

New PMQG sponsors!
