May 7, 2010 - Fabric Center participates in Quilting Across North Georgia
Evelyn's Fabric Center and Quilt Shop became England for a few days during this year's 5th Annual Shop Hop. Owner Evelyn Payne played her part as Queen by wearing a crown and waving to her subjects. Tea anyone?
North Georgia Visits the World was the theme for the recent 2010 Shop Hop - Quilting Across North Georgia. An official passport allowed holders to participate in the festivities.
Shoppers from Union County headed out to follow the assigned route, get their passports stamped at each location, collect free gifts, and find all kinds of unique quilting products. Most of all, they were inspired to start new projects! Seven fabric and quilting shops from Ellijay to Hiawassee and Dawsonville to Dahlonega participated in the shop hop. If you missed it this year, look for new passports in 2011.
May 9, 2009 - Fabric Center part of Quilting Across North Georgia
Evelyn's Fabric Center and Quilt Shop recently participated in the 4th Annual Quilting Across North Georgia Shop Hop. Over 450 people visited the store during the three day event!
Owner Evelyn Payne says, "It's a lot of fun. The theme this year was Quilting the Holidays All Year Through. Our holiday was Christmas, we even decorated a tree." Featured were holly prints, poinsettias, and other red and green 100% cotton fabrics.
The Fabric Center , along with six other quilting shops, participated in the shop hop. Shoppers visited each store on the route and hopefully purchased seasonal fabrics at each stop along the way. There were prizes and free give-a-ways throughout the event.
Evelyn has been selling fabric in Blairsville, Georgia for 31 years! She is planning a 31st Anniversary Sale for the week of June 1st through the 6th. All fabrics will be marked down at that time.
