Hello Watergirl Quilt Co. Crew,
Have you heard the news?
You all know that we are a new Canadian business, and thanks to all of you who have already voted, we are a strong contender to be named the winner of the Local Quilt Shop Contest, an international contest, sponsored by American retailer Patterns By Annie.
Currently sitting in 7th place out of 1328 shops worldwide, our small but mighty quilt shop wants to put Prescott, Ontario on the map as the Canadian Quilting Destination!
Will you help us?
We all know that quilters are crazy about fabric, learning and being with like-minded people. We will travel from near and far to pursue our passion. We will travel by car, by train, by boat or by plane! Let’s bring more quilters to Prescott to discover all the hidden gems of our great little town! For those of you who live further away, we really appreciate that you visit us online and on Facebook and Instagram. We would love to welcome you in-person too someday!
We love reading your comments on the ByAnnie website. This is what one voter wrote about us:
“This is no ordinary quilt shop! It’s just a feel good, magical happy place here on earth! "
Now that makes us smile!
Please help us to get out the word to the rest of the world and vote online today at https://www.byannie.com/lqs-contest?src=landingpageslider
We were really excited last week when Annie featured us in her live Facebook Video and let us know that we won some goodies. We are going to have fun doing a contest at our shop to allow all of you to win some of those prizes once they arrive! Imagine if we could place in the top three and win some more cool prizes to share!
If you want to see what Annie said about us, please watch her Youtube Video at the 49 minute mark when she talks about the contest and features 3 shops.
After you have voted, please choose an image from By Annie and post it on your social media account with the #watergirlquiltco and #optlocal hashtags.
Please encourage your friends and family to vote for us too so that we can continue to grow and be your Canadian Quilting Destination.
Stay safe, stay hopeful and do something that makes you smile!
Michelle and the Watergirls
We are just waiting for the tables and chairs to arrive to open our Education Centre. When you vote for us, please mention how we love to offer many learning opportunities to our quilters.
