We are ready to load and roll to St. Cloud for the Minnesota Quilt Show. It has been a few funny years to say the least. The last quilt show that we were at in person was here in town. We had the full line of BERNINA domestic machines there, BERNINA longarms and we supplied 770 Quilter's Edition machines in a classroom and sew much more. It was our first year and we learned quite a lot about setting up at a convention center. We were still in our old location and boy did we have fun! Some of you parked at the shop and road the shuttle over and others parked down town. The best part, there were all of you there to stop by and say hi!
Last year, we were also a part of the Minnesota Quilt Show and we represented the BERNINA domestic machines only. Gosh, we had a lot of fun too but it was a totally different experience as it was all virtual. Thanks to all of you that tuned in and said Hi! I wish I had taken a photo of my studio with the complex filming set up and all the BERNINAS! What a dream that was. We came to you LIVE each hour via Facebook and later we posted our broadcast on YouTube.
Fast forward to this year. We are representing the BERNINA longarms in St. Cloud, MN from June 16-18. The planning began last fall and we are ready. All of the machines and accessories have arrived. Kendra and Tom have been busy assembling and testing everything and we are boxed up and ready to load.
This morning Tom backed the trailer up to the loading dock and the heavens opened up and it rained and rained and rained some more. Suzie is soaked and our loading dock is stuck in the down position but our excitement can not be dampened. We moved the truck out to let the storms roll through just in the nick of time to allow the Fed Ex truck to deliver two pallets full of new chairs. There is never a dull moment around here. We are so thankful for the loading dock area and our large classroom to stage all of these boxes and machines.
The skies have cleared and we are going to try again. Be sure to stop in the shop and test drive the floor models and see which suits your needs. All of our demo models are available to purchase and if you would prefer a brand new one, we would be happy to order one for you. There is of course special pricing, bundles of goodies, 60 month zero percent financing, extra promotional savings from BERNINA and sew much more. All we need is for your to reserve the machine of your dreams. In addition to the longarms, we do have some in store only promos on the domestic machines.
Our booth will be the first you see from the main entrance at the St. Cloud Convention center. Be sure to stop in and see how we "Measure Up." If you can't make it to St. Cloud, stop into the store and see what we have been sewing, check out the new cute gift items and play on all of the machines.
I won't be joining Marcia this week for the Marcia & Joy show but be sure to tune in at 1:00 on Wednesday for the next clue and more inspiration because she plans to do the show solo this week.
See you Soon! Joy
