A Quilter’s Fantasy: Warehouse Shopping at Lecien USA

February 25, 2011

On Tuesday, Debbie, April, Keiko and Mark traveled to Emeryville, CA to visit the Lecien warehouse. We were so thankful that Mr. Wonderful was able to join us on our adventure.  Traffic was crazy and the freeways in the East bay were quit treacherous.  Once we arrived in front of the warehouse , we were able to open our eyes, knowing we were safe and sound.  Before you all get excited and start making plans for your own adventure, we need to tell you that the warehouse is only open to quilt shop owners and business vendors. 

Pictured is April, Debbie, Nireko with Matt, the President of Lecien, USA.

 The building houses the majority of the current lines of Lecien.  It was much cleaner and more organized than the  word “warehouse”  brings to mind.   Everyone had a great time going through the bolts, picking and choosing some old favorites and selecting several purple and green fabrics for an upcoming kit. 

 We filled a cart full of dots, checks, and many taupe fabrics to compliment the ones that we already have at the store.

Notice April’s smiling face?

It’s always fun to meet with fabric reps and shop for fabric while looking at strike-offs, however, there’s something much more exciting about pulling a bolt right off the shelf and being able to take it home with you!

And now for the moment you have all been waiting for….the winner of our drawing for the fat quarter bundle of the Brenda Riddle line, Georgia Lou is……Linda H. Her comment was “Beautiful fabrics! I’m looking forward to getting acquainted with your new blog.”  Thank you for the comment Linda.  We will email you for shipping information. 

A big THANKS to all of you who visited and commented on our new Blog.  We are happy to be part of the blog world and plan to bring you more giveaways, recipes, and featured kits.  If there is anything you see on our blog that you are interested in, please don’t hesitate to call the store or email us.  We will ship ANYWHERE!

Have a GREAT Weekend!
