Flamingo Days are here again! Come party like a flock-star and help us celebrate Marsha's birthday at our annual PINK SALE! Today & Tomorrow, July 7th & 8th at the shop where we'll be taking 20% off regular price items with even a smidge of PINK -- fabric, kits, notions, books, patterns... if there's pink, it will be 20% off! You might be surprised at how many things that includes (though some exclusions may apply). For example, most of our kits have atleast a touch of pink. I bet you could spot a speck of pink in just about any book or pattern and pink just happens to be a popular color for notions. As for fabric... there's plenty of pink to be found! To include our feathered friends from afar in our festivities, we'll be offering FREE SHIPPING site-wide to online shoppers Friday, July 7th - Monday, July 10th! Use coupon code "FLAMINGO" at checkout.
With Flamingo Days comes the telling of a legendary tale... Let's discuss this STUNNING quilt. It's one we are particularly proud of. It's such a prized possession (maybe Marsha's favorite?) that it's only on display but once a year. It has a story. When Marsha first expressed her "fondness" for flamingos in the early years of Corn Wagon Quilt Co. our dear friend, Mary Jacobson, put together these adorable (?) flamingo quilt blocks and generously gifted them to Marsha. Thrilled by the possibilities, Marsha added a tacky -- oops! I mean tasteful border and graciously gifted it back to Mary. The quilt was passed back and forth, each friend adding another finishing touch until it was finally declared a masterpiece of incomparable design. Through the years we've made some bedazzling additions. Annually, it is brought out with great ovation and displayed in all it's splendor for Marsha's big day until, alas, it must go back into our heavily guarded, temperature controlled archives until next year. This treasure was just the beginning of many flamingo gifts as you can see...
I regret to inform you we do not have kits for this one, as it is truly an original work of art.
When you arrive for Flamingo Days, see if you can count how many flamingos we have in Marsha's collection here at the shop for a chance to win a $25 Corn Wagon Gift Card!
HINT: She has way more than she ever dreamed possible.
Come in and think PINK for Flamingo Days!
Be sure to wish Marsha a Happy Birthday while you're here!
