The Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace will be here before you know it. Now that you have finished baking and cleaning and making lists of things that needed your attention at the last minute, think about a whole day of sewing, fabric shopping and creativity on the other side of all that chaos.
If you don't like crowds...........then come in the afternoon about 2 pm and you can shop with ease!!
The Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace will be held January 6 – 7, 2012, at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center, 1801 Nash St., Sanford, NC 27330. The hours both days are 9 am – 5 pm. Admission is $5.00. There will be food on site and plenty of parking. Sanford is easy to get to from most of eastern NC. It’s big enough to have a nice facility, but not so big that you will get lost. Load up several of your friends and plan to spend the day with us. We’ve tried to get the best quality and the best variety of vendors in one place for your shopping convenience.
