Small Business Saturday

Deals Abound on Black Friday

Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States and is often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.


Fabric Shoppers Unite!


Did you know the name originated in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic on the day after Thanksgiving? Use of the term began before 1961 and saw broader use outside of Philadelphia after 1975. Later an alternative explanation was made that retailers operated at a financial loss January through November and “Black Friday” indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit or are “in the black.”

Will you take advantage of good deals and be out shopping on Black Friday?

Remember you can always find what you need for quilting and sewing at your independent quilt and fabric retailer.
