Customer Josée Element came into the store a couple of weeks ago with a big surprise!  But before I reveal it to you, I want you to know the background.  So here we go!

2015 was the first year our store participated in the Row by Row Experience.  A mere eight days into the contest,  Josée  brought in her finished quilt and was awarded a 25-piece fat quarter bundle of Northcott’s Artisan Spirit Sandscape fabrics.  Below is the picture of happy Josée (on the right) and her quilt.

Along came 2016, and Josée finished her Row by Row quilt again in record time to win a fat quarter bundle from Quilt Thyme in Kingston. (Sorry, I don’t have a picture).

In November that year, Northcott held a challenge using the Artisan Spirit Sandscape fabrics.  Not one to sit around waiting for next June’s Row by Row, Josée put on her creative cap, and came up as a winner.

You can view all the winners of this challenge here on Northcott’s Facebook page.

2017’s Row by Row came along at our store, and 6 days into it, Josée came in with her finished quilt to capture another 25-piece fat quarter bundle of batiks.

So what is she up to now?  Well four wins in (that I know of), and Josée comes by to share with us the card of fabrics that she and Debra Edwards have designed for Northcott based on her winning Sandscapes challenge entry!  And so cool that her entry was made with the bundle we presented to her in 2015!  How’s that for multiplying your wins!

Here is another view of these fabrics which are shipping to stores in March/April 2018.

Way to go Josée!  We are so pumped and excited for you,  love your enthusiasm, and appreciate how you are always up for a challenge.

PS:  I know you want to see the details.  So click on the pictures for larger, crisper views.
