Sale day!

Tomorrow is sale day at Quilt Tree. It happens three times a year, and is CRAZY town. I used to go as a customer (if you are going for classes, be there early, if you are just going for fabric, go in the afternoon...) but now I have to work it every time.  It is really hit or miss how I feel about working the sale. Most times, it is fine because my shift goes really quickly because you don't get a break. However, sometimes people are super cranky and that really annoys me. You have to know going into it that you are going to be there for a while. Clearly, it is hard to move around the store... there are TONS of people there, it is going to take us a while to get through the line. So take a chill pill, drink your coffee or whatever, and relax. Being mean to the clerks doesn't make us move any faster. In fact, sometimes it causes us to make mistakes, which makes it take even longer.

I am planning on signing up for one class today when I head to work (which I hopefully remember to do... I've been meaning to do it since last Wednesday...) which is a finishing class for hand work.  I want to work on my embroidery quilt that I started when I was pregnant, and I think this will be the perfect time for it.

That is really all I have, just a PSA about being nice to people who help you out in stores. A little kindness goes a long way. :) Have a great weekend!

Lol. Love your PSA. I don't get people sometimes. Seriously people, chill out. It will ALL be okay. Living in the Northern east coast I feel like there are alot of, "its all about me" people. Lets all just be nice, okay.
