Reunion PAR-TAY!


Well, hello there, my lovelies! This is Molli Sparkles , so fasten your seat belts and consider this an Intrepid Thread blog-jacking. 
 
 
That's right, I'm shutting 'er down and raising the roof. If you know me and my insatiable fabric ways, you know I love shopping at the Intrepid Thread. Like, seriously, anytime I buy fabric and have it sent to me in Sydney it always comes in a box--sometimes two--because who has time to mess around with envelopes!? 
 
It was one year ago that I walked through the doors of the Intrepid Thread bricks and mortar for the first time. My life would never be the same. You see, at the time, I was a new quilter and an even newer blogger, with not much to show for my time. But once inside that little shop in Milpitas, California my eyes were opened to all of the possibilities that fabric could bring. You can see the mountains of fabric I bought, as well as a full recount of events in this post. On top of all those shenanigans, Julie and team (:::waves at Colleen:::) were incredibly welcoming to my jet-lagged soul, even after I didn't leave for five hours. Yes, I am that customer.


So let's get this cat out of the bag! To celebrate this one year anniversary, I'm coming back to where it all began at the Intrepid Thread. Mmm hmmm. Oh, and y'all know I'm gonna throw a par-tay! This is a one-night only affair, so I expect you to be there. Since Intrepid Thread is not open on Sundays, you can consider this a private party, and you're on the guest list. Leave your sewing machines at home because this is all about gas-bagging and racking up as many frequent flyer points I can on my credit card. (I've gotta get home somehow!) I'm bringing an extra suitcase to hold all of my purchases, and I do hope you'll come and be part of the enabling celebrations!

So let's break it down:
What: A Molli Sparkles & Intrepid Thread Reunion Par-tay!
When: Sunday, February 23rd
Time: 3-6ish
Where: Intrepid Thread, 1709 S. Main St., Milpitas, CA
Why: The fabric needs us.

  2. Alas, a tad far. Maybe if lots of people rack up frequent flyer miles they can donate some to me for next year ;o)

  4. So wish I could be there. I would love to see Julie's shop in person and meet you face to face. Please post lots of pics for those of us on the other side of the country. And have a blast! Yes, the fabric needs us and we need it!!

  7. Oh, how FUN. Alas, too far for me, but you need to come see our hoarder's delight quilt shop sometime. (They don't take online orders, so it wouldn't be like really cheating on Julie, just a one-night stand.)

  8. Never have I so badly wished I still lived in San Jose... *big-huge-freaking-fat-longing-sigh*

  9. Yay! Can't wait to see you again Josh! Your last visit was so ridiculously silly and fun, and I imagine this one will be even more so!

  10. Oh, a day late & a dollar short as the saying goes. There is that little minor detail of being on the other side of the planet from where I am at the moment but hey, you can stop by on your way home! You'd be very welcome. As would your stash purchases... :-) I'm sure you had a blast! Looking forward to hearing all about it through the blog. Happy quilting & travelling!
