    Missouri Quilt Co

    When I went to the website today, I read this message:

    "It is with great regret that I announce that the Missouri Star Quilt Company, beginning April 15th, will no longer be selling quilting supplies. The Missouri Star Quilt Company will be known from then on as the Missouri Star As-Seen-On-TV Company. Instead of selling pre-cuts, yardage, kits and notions we have decided to transition into products that provide more instant gratification."

    Now I am crying ... one more dependable site biting the dust. I just bragged a few days ago what a great company they are/were. I hate progress!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    is this a April Fools joke?...I just went to the site and didnt see any such notice
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Okay, found it - under the daily deal. And if you keep reading, it is, indeed, an April Fool's joke. Phew.

    Seriously, you didn't really think that was TRUE, did you? It sounds so ridiculous the way it was worded, you had to have known, right?

    MaryMo, I am sure you are not the only one to not read the whole thing. That is risky for a business to do that. Sign up for their email.

    and when I got to the bottom of the page I read:

    "APRIL FOOLS! Okay, okay, so I'm sure that 99% of you knew that I was just kiddin' around, but for the 1% of you who didn't, I got you good! Sham Wows instead of quilting ... HA! In your dreams!"

    yes, I am part of the 1% this time! ... how could I forget it was April Fools' Day! UGH!!!!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I agree, very risky for any business to be displaying notices of that kind, even as a joke =\
