February 2016

Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow so that means an early spring! Now that you are done laughing, I hope you stayed warm during the storm that hit us this week. We are starting to see new fabric arrive again after the holidays. There are new westerns, colorful new batiks, happy camping novelty fabrics and so much more. We have new samples of the very popular pop up canisters, new spring banner pattern, a heart skinny for Valentine’s Day and new quilt samples in the works.

Join us for a BOGO Sale this Saturday, February 6th.  Stock up on quilt pattern books this weekend.  Is there a pattern book you have been eyeing?  This is your chance to add to your quilting library.   Buy one quilt pattern book, get one of equal or lessor value free.
