Spring is almost here! Time change will be here before we know it, too. Have you got your gardens planned and your seeds purchased? That means there are only a few weeks until the April Retreat. If you are attending, please remember that your balance is due by March 21, 2022.
ATTENTION: we have a customer that is looking for a roommate for April's retreat. If you're open to sharing a room with a new friend, or like the idea of cost sharing, let us know and we'll put you in contact.
We now carry "So Fine Polyester Thread" in the shade Pearl. If you are making purses, we've heard this thread is amazing!
Our Annual Fat Quarter Extravaganza is February 28 through March 5 (THIS NEXT WEEK for those of you in the back)
20 fat quarters for $35! That's quite a deal.
We have over 10,000 fat quarters to choose from.
You must buy in bundles of 20 fat quarters in order to get the sale price. You may create your bundle from any of the available fat quarters. As always, store-made bundles are 20% off.
Who's ready for spring and bright colors? Keep your eyes open for a new line of bright, colorful prints and panels coming from In The Beginning Fabrics. "Summer" should arrive in the shop in April, "Autumn" arrives in July, and "Winter" arrives in October. "Spring" is not pictured. If you're interested in any of them, please give the shop a call to reserve yours. Shop samples will be ready to view soon.
We are creating an interest list for this new Block of the Month called "Masterpiece". It starts in May of this year. This quilt will be big! It is a 108" square. The price will be $24 per month and includes all fabrics for the top, binding and pattern. You have to see these fabrics to realize just how rich and beautiful these jewel tones are. The picture does not do this quilt justice.
Please remember the interest list does NOT mean you are signed up for "Masterpiece", it just gives us an idea of how much fabric we need to order, so if you think you might want to do this block of the month please let us know and we will put you on the interest list.
If there is a technique that you are wanting to learn, please let us know and we'll arrange a class. Without feedback from you, we don't know what our customers want.
