    Request for a vote-help a quilt shop!

    TV Chanel 5 in Chicago has teamed with The Hartford Insurance Company to give a $2,500 boost to a local business. I have never posted a request like this before .....

    I hope some of you will join me in voting on facebook for The Quilters Trunk at the link below. They do ask for your email but also offer the disclaimer that they will not share your email with any 3rd parties and you will have to check a box if you want info from the insurance company. Voting will end Sunday July 24th.

    THEIR BACKSTORY. The Quilters Trunk is a new shop that is actually IN the city of Chicago that just opened last fall. The plans were to open before June so they could benefit from sales they expected to make during the Northern Illinois Shop Hop (Jun-Aug) and Row by Row-2015. Unfortunately there were several stumbling blocks that prevented their opening. They remodeled a building that used to house a restaurant and experience frustrating remodeling delays, city inspections, and contractor problems. They were finally permitted to open their doors in late September ... but they had already missed all the sales that they could have made during the summer events.

    This deserving shop has turned out beautifully and the owner and staff are dedicated to bringing quality fabrics, tools and classes/guest speakers and instructors to the city. I was fortunate to go to a seminar conducted by Mary Fons and was amazed at how reasonable the fee charged. They also give back to the community - see what they've done in the short time they've been open. http://www.thequilterstrunk.com/giving-back/

    So here's the voting link. I have 2 email addresses and vote using each one every day. My sincere Thank You for helping them!

    I saw this earlier in the week on Mary Fons' blog post and voted, but then I forgot about voting daily. Thanks for the reminder. Mary Fons, like Jenny Doan, is one of my personal heroes! I'm happy you got to go to a seminar!

      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                      Judy!

                      Thank you for the wonderful post. I am so pleased to let you know that The Quilter's Trunk WON the contest!!!

                      NBC 5 will be out in the next few weeks to film a spot.

                      I am so thrilled that the members of this forum voted for us, based on Judy's request. We all know that quilting and sewing are alive and thriving, and now the viewing audience of channel 5 will too! I invite you all to come see us next time you are in the area. Thank you!
