If you were roaming the aisles of Quilt Market this past weekend, you may have happened by the Pellon® booth. If you did, you likely got a glimpse of our Pellon Projects™ Fixture.
The fixture is a fantastic merchandising system that we created for shops both big and small to help motivate and facilitate sales. It proudly displays our best selling products, including a wide range of batting on boards, all of your favorite interfacings and stabilizers and a healthy selection of new packaged products. It also features tear sheets with FAQs and project ideas complete with shopping lists. It’s really an amazing way to shine the spotlight on products that are normally hidden in the back of a shop. Why am I going on and on about this wonderful fixture? Well, we went a little show crazy and gave one away! That’s right… a whole fixture, for FREE.

Shop owners had the chance to enter to win between 9:30am on Friday morning and 2pm on Saturday afternoon. The winner had to be present at the drawing in order to win. We all had a few laughs as the first few names drawn were no-shows. I ended up being the one with the magic touch and drew our winner! The moment that I called out the name Nancy Handler, there was a small shriek from the crowd and a heck of a lot of smiling.

Nancy runs her shop, I Love Sewing, with her mom and her aunt and all three were present to claim their prize. The shop is located in Fremont, NE and though I’ve never been, I’m absolutely loving their website. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and if you’re local, pop in and say hello! Pretty soon, they’ll be sporting a fabulous fixture to meet all of your Pellon® needs!
