Prairie Point Fabrics in Shawnee, KS, has a Fat Quarter Frenzy every year on the weekend of the Super Bowl. I went last year for the first time and could not miss it this year. Normally, it’s been on Sunday morning, but it was moved to Saturday this year. I convinced a few friends to go and we were supposed to meet my friends from Topeka there, but weather and other circumstances kept them in Topeka.
We got there at 8am to wait for the doors to open at 9:30am. Last year, there was quite a line, but this year, there were only three groups in line until just a few minutes before opening.
We had a good time waiting in line, mostly due to a very lively couple of ladies who were next to us and the man with the snow plow. Oh, did I mention that it had snowed/iced the night before. Nothing was keeping me away from a fabric sale!
When the doors opened, we rushed in, split up, and grabbed whatever we thought anybody in our group would like. Then we met in a corner of the store and put everything together and picked out what we wanted.
The minimum was 20 FQs for $25. Val and I split ours and I split another with Cathy. Then I purchased a couple more because they were only $1.25 per FQ after the initial 20. They are normally $3.25. What a deal, right? I think I ended up with 28 or so. Sherry ended up with at least the 20 and maybe a few more. Amy beat us all with 40 something.
The store had a great selection of modern and traditional fabrics. As you can see, I ended up with a good assortment of modern fabrics. Plus, we had such a good time together!
