    Default This makes not going to the Fall Get Together even worse!

    I just got this email from M*. I am honestly jealous of those that will be able to attend. I wish that all of you have a wonderful time and that M* lets the rest of us join in on the great sales of that birthday bash.

    Itís MSQCís 5th Birthday!
    Most five year olds want a Barbie doll or a Spiderman action figure (or a toy of some sort) for their birthday. Not MSQC! For our 5th birthday we just want you Ö to come and visit us that is In a couple of weeks MSQC is having a good old fashioned birthday bash, and we want you to join us! Hereís the scoop:
    1) The festivities will take place on October 4th and 5th (Friday and Saturday)
    2) We will be unveiling the new Retreat Center that we have been working on (and blogging about) over the past year! The doors will be open from 8:30am ñ 5pm both days so that you can come in, tour around and check it out..
    3) We have awesome stuff going on in shop, including thousands of $1 Fat Quarters, tables full of precuts and other quilting supplies on sale, and tons of instant door prizes.
    4) Weíre having a Fall Movie in the Park on a giant new big screen on Saturday night at dusk (8:30ish - weather permitting - bring your own chair or quilt to sit on, movie will be a family friendly film that we haven't decided on yet).
    5) The town of Hamilton is bringing back the famous ìPenney Festivalî, named after J.C Penney (from Hamilton). We haven't had it for a few years, so we are excited to throw our birthday bash in conjunction with this local tradition. Below weíve listed the activities going on during Penney Festival.

    It sure sounds tempting. We used to pass the exit for Hamilton all the time while driving my oldest back and forth to Truman State. I always wanted to see when James Cash Penny was from, his story is great, small town boy who overcame adversity to start such a successful business.

    I don't have any friends that sew or quilt though. Do any of you take your husbands to quilting events? How does that work out? I know my DH would go if I asked him but I'm just not sure. Although, I did make a trip to the Harley dealership with him recently so maybe this could be payback time?

    Awww man! I so wanted to go as well. I have known for a while I wasn't going to make it, but this is just sad.

    Karen, I was going to be bringing my husband & daughter on this road trip. I know I wasn't the only one. I'd say if you can get him to come with you, DO IT!

    You all have fun! I'll miss getting to meet you in person.

    I'm here with you, Lisa. I even took the time off of work, but, my friend can't go and I can't afford the cost of going alone. Shoot, I really can't justify the cost of going with her, either. I must save as much as I can right now - hoping that the right house will come along any day now. Maybe next year.

    I can't remember what birthday sales were available last year to those shopping online. I know we didn't get $1.00 fat quarters offered to us, but I think there were other precuts on sale than just the daily deal.

    OOH those $1 FQs sound so tempting. Maybe we can get Jenny to run flash sales for those of us not going to the retreat?
