This Is Big News

I think everyone who owns a quilt shop
would love to have their shop featured in the 
American Patchwork and Quilting Sampler Magazine.

It really is an honor to be picked out as one of the 
ten shops that is highlighted either in the spring or fall edition.

Last spring I went on a campaign, of sorts, to have
 The Fig Leaf 
be nominated and accepted into this Hall of Fame.

Laura Shotwell, the owner, has been in business
for 30 years, silently meeting the needs of her customers 
and advancing the art of quilt making.

It was time for some acknowledgement 
in the industry.
With the help of many of our loyal and wonderful customers
and their positive affirmations, 
 I am happy to say 
The Fig Leaf will be one of the shops
featured in the Spring, 2012 magazine!

We have had to be "hush hush" about this wonderful
opportunity until now.

Take a moment to watch my Smilebox
about our photo shoot with the photographers and
designer from Meredith Publishing Co.
It truly was a wonderful day.
