    I went to PMS at my LQS- can't piecing, munching, socializing, this was the first time I attended. What a nice time! The lady next to me forgot her foot pedal and power cord. Being only 20 min away she asked her husb to bring the cords and he did. The gal across from me forgot to bring her prewound bobbins, she was very organized it was hard to believe she forgot anything. I didn't know what I was to bring and you could stay the whole day 9-9 so I packed in a hurry in the morning, and guess what I forgot, my power cord and foot pedal. I cut pieces for my 3 projects that I brought, and then shopped the clearance sectiona and the store had 30% off fabric. When the store owner found out I didn't have a working machine she gave me a demo Bernina to use. I was able to get my border almost completed on my grandsons quilt. Did I say I was able to shop? The projects were so nice and I learned a lot. I don'[t think I mentioned that I found some bargains. Oh I forgot fat quarters were $1.25 The store owner even baked cookies for us. And then everyone took breaks and shopped a little bit. Her clearance fabric is 50% off and on the shelves next to us, we did our best saleperson duty and encouraged all the shoppers to check out the great bargains. Her clearance fabric is still stylish and a great deal.

    last purchase for my sister. (batiks fats hers also)

    The quilt shop is in a very tiny little town, it is such a fun place to be, if you ever go on the Minnesota shop it is on the map

    Lucky you! Sounds like your LQS really knows how to attract and keep customers...don't we all wish we had such a place to go? You've certainly got some nice fabs and projects to keep you busy...lookin' forward to seeing them posted soon.

    I can't tell you how many times I have left my cords at home! That happens a lot when you use the same machine at home and to take to classes. Someone in classes/workshops always forgets! I found a cord set at a thrift shop that fit my class machine and I keep it in my car. You are so lucky to have a great LQS like this one.

    We have something similar to that here on the 3rd. Friday of every month. The owner charges us $12 for the night, she puts on a feast of homecooked food for supper and dessert...offers us sales....has a door prize...and we have a great time while there. We can get there anytime after 4:30 and she will stay til midnight if any of the gals want to. The latest I have stayed is 10:30.

    I wondered that too for other post, now when you post and you have your three on and you have submitted a little box will come up and ask Add attachment with the browse button. you can add one picture at a time but it is neat because they are all on your initial post.
