AllegroFabrics One Year Anniversary!

Come join the Party!
It all starts on Monday morning, February 2nd. I can hardly believe that a whole year has gone by. The idea of opening an online fabric store came to me one rainy Seattle day. I convinced some of my design group friends to fly out for the regional quilt market. I had sooo much fun meeting and hosting Laurie, Timi, Christine, and Jen. We spent an entire day meeting with the local reps and making fabric selections. I excitedly opened accounts with all of them and just hoped all the choices we made were good ones! How could I go wrong surrounded by such talented designers!?
Timi volunteered to create a website for me. I wondered how I would ever learn how to manage such a thing. She worked tirelessly for me and led me thru the steps. The results of her creativity and design along with the unending support of the members of my design group, Sugar3, have given me an amazing first year.
I am throwing this party for all of you! Come on over to AllegroFabrics and join in on a few contests, win a few prizes and see how Timi has decorated for the event.
