Good News/Bad News

I got some great news this weekend when I found out that My Thistle Garden won the Best Machine Workmanship Award at the Asheville Quilt Show! I am utterly thrilled to win this award because the Asheville show is a great show with loads of beautiful quilts, so winning this award is really an honor.  To celebrate, we’re putting all of our Patsy Thompson Designs products on sale at 20% off through 9 am EDST on Friday, October 10th.  To get the discount, just enter celebrate in the discount code box during checkout.  The discount will not show up until the very last page during checkout, but it’s there!
The downer news is that our new warehouse manager, Michelle, will be leaving so we have decided to liquidate all of our inventory that is not a Patsy Thompson Designs product.  The good news for you is that all this non-PTD inventory is 40% off the MSRP!  Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so please scoop up anything that catches your eye!  Fabric, thread, batting, notions, etc…it’s all on clearance starting NOW!  To obtain this discount, you’ll need to enter the discount code CLEARANCE during checkout.  (Note:  the store will only allow you to enter 1 discount code per purchase, so you will need to make 2 purchases if you are purchasing clearance items AND PTD products.) To all of you who have shopped in our online store over the years, thanks so much for your patronage and it’s been our pleasure to serve you!

    Wow. Big decision. Good luck!

  2. Jean Says:

    Congratulations on your award! Fantastic!
    So sorry to hear about the loss of your warehouse manager; what a shame. I hope it all works out well for you, Patsy.

    I am not surprised you won, when you posted your picture of the finished quilt I thought it was gorgeous ! Congratulations you deserve it !
    On the second note, I wish you well with the changes to your online store. Sometimes things take on a life of their own, and begin to effect the quality of the rest of our life ( hassle factor )The more I see around me as I age I try to remind myself this is not a dress rehearsal. I hope this impacts you only in positive ways. 🙂

    Congratulations, Patsy!! So well-deserved!! Now I know why you were working towards a deadline — you obviously do very well under pressure. Would love to see this quilt in person some day.

    And I will miss Michelle, too –she is a lovely representative of your business, and she was so helpful to me every time I called. She’ll be missed by everyone, I’m sure.
