View Full Version : Another Opportunity to Support Missouri Star!

June 29th, 2012, 10:36 PM
This is for those of you who don't live on Facebook (or at least haven't seen MSQC's latest post).

This is what was posted:

"Real quick, if you wouldn't mind, we have submitted an application for the "Mission Small Business" competition that has a prize of $250,000! We want to build our "Sleep and Sew" above the quilt shop, buy more servers, and keep growing, this would really help us do that. If you could go here, login, and search for Missouri Star Quilt Co and vote, we need 250 votes by tomorrow to be eligible. Thank you so much!! https://www.missionsmallbusiness.com/ "

When I voted they still needed a little over 100 votes! Jump in folks and let's show them our support!

I was number 103. Feel a little quilty I didn't vote for something more local, but I SO admire MSQC business model and their 'if we build it, they will come' credence.
And who knows? Maybe I'll be on one of those 'bus trips' that roll in, someday!

I shared it on my timeline for anyone to vote who loves to sew/quilt or just loves quilts! Do the same to get the word out for Jenny and the family! :)

Come on ladies - AND GENTS - lets vote, vote, vote.

How much more "local" can you get than in your own house? I have a fully stocked quilt shop, engaging instructors, and the best set of quilting buddies all right here in my sewing room! LOVE that!

220 when I checked in!

June 29th, 2012, 11:14 PM

Glad to hear these big numbers. When I oted, they were way under 100, sounds like they may make it!

June 30th, 2012, 12:03 AM
I think they only need 250, so it does look like they made it. I am glad too because when I voted, it was less than 30. When my friend looked it was 252 so, yea! they did it. :)

June 30th, 2012, 12:07 AM
SThey met the 250 minimum but it would be great if we could show the panel that they have a great, loyal following of customers locally, nationwide and internationally! Let's share the news to our friends and keep the votes going to really get the numbers up. Some of the quilting blogs have really high numbers, I would like MSQC have high numbers as well. We can help them by getting the word out...

I think worldwide votes should count double! Can't understand why California votes don't count! Can you vote more than once per email address?

California is not local enough? I know there have been some of our international peeps voting. Try again, Coleen.

June 30th, 2012, 11:47 AM
The latest number is at #446! Lets keep voting!

June 30th, 2012, 11:57 AM
Can I still vote. I tried but it said they couldn't find what I was looking for. I put in Missouri Star Quilt Co and MSQC. What am I doing wrong?? Help I want to vote.
