For over 20 years, Suzanne Bruns and her staff at Prairieland Quilts have been sewing samples of different patterns they sell in the shop. Varying in size, shape and color, these samples have hung on the walls, from the ceiling and have been part of displays in the store.
Now, many of the patterns are no longer available for sale so it’s time to move them along. “We have almost 100 samples priced from $5 to $875 that we can’t use any more” said Suzanne. “Purses, wall hangings, table runners and even a couple full size quilts” she added.
The Sample sale will be held the weekend of December 5th & 6th and Monday December 8th, just in time for Christmas. Store hours are 9am to 4pm weekdays and 9am to 3pm Saturday.
Items to be sold include Christmas wall hangings, Table runners, purses & bags. One wall hanging features Wolves running through the woods; another elegant full size quilt has many individual embroideries placed throughout the quilt. Seasonal pieces, funny pieces and many practical runners and trivets are part of this huge collection of hand made treasures to be sold.
