7th Anniversary and PFD SALE

Hello everyone, hope you are having a nice fall. We've had a few flakes falling but nothing serious. So far, so good! But it's time to start thinking of your winter projects, and we're giving you a great opportunity to save some money:
Since we just hit our 7th anniversary, and it's PFD time, we are having over a week of savings, from October 8th through the 16th. That includes two Saturdays, for anyone who can't make it during the week! We'll be having 30% off LOTS of selected items. Lots of "only one or two left", and "it's just been around too long" sort of stuff, as well as Novelty/conversation prints, 30s reproduction, scenery background, and even Kaffe Fassett fabrics! If you've been just dying to have one of our commercially made Amy Butler bags, those are on sale, too! We'll have most of the notions and books gathered together on sale tables, and don't forget to check out our 50% off books and $3.99 fabric trunk.
Discounts cannot be combined, and punchcards cannot be punched on sale items
We have some classes coming up, too.
Eddy is teaching her Log Cabin tree skirt on October 30th. It's just beautiful! And because it's a log cabin pattern, it's not hard, so it could be beginner friendly ( I haven't asked her if she'll take beginners, but we can check with her).
Party with Patrick is as always on the 3rd Tues of the month, October 19th. This one is called "the Sky is Falling" and is of course anacorn wallhanging! Cute!
Sandi is teaching the Batik Illusion quilt made with a special Robert Kaufman stiped batik fabric that we only have enough for a few quilters. It is really gorgeous! She is teaching this on the 27th of November.
By demand, I'm teaching the Purse-o-nality Times Four bags that you may have seen me working on occasionally over the last few weeks, as I had time. The date I'm looking at right now is November 6th. There are four bags, and I'll help you get through whichever one you'd like, and then that should have you familiar enough with the directions that you can do the other three on your own.
Marcia is up for teaching a version of the Turning Twenty that she made using the Kaffe Fassett fabrics. We haven't nailed down a date yet, though, but let us know if you're interested. All the more reason to check out the sale this next week on the Kaffe fabrics.
Speaking of bags, we just got the most gorgeous line of zippers in, that are targeted towards bags, but could be used for about anything. They are 14" zippers, in a rainbow of colors, and are just $.99 each. You can cut them down to any smaller size you like, and just zigzag across wherever you want the end to be. If you need something longer, we have zippers by the inch in some basic colors.
We've been getting in a variety of fabrics and notions, books and patterns, etc, etc., so come in for the sale if not before, and check out all our new stuff, There's a new waterproof fabric to make diaper covers/reusable diapers with, (and we have the patterns). Lots of new apron and vest patterns for the upcoming FMKQ craft day, We got a big mixed order from Moda, that has a little bit of everything, so just browse the aisles and see what's new!
Don't forget we are Handi Quilter dealers, so if you're thinking of buying a longarm machine, come and talk to us! And, if you'd love to do your own quilts, but have nowhere to put a machine,we can train you to use the machine, so you can rent ours! I'm sure it will get busier as we get closer to Christmas, so if you have something ready to go now, you might want to schedule a time, soon. (Watch for specials that HandiQuilter runs on the machines and tables, periodically, too!)
Well, stay warm and cozy while you're dreaming up your winter projects, then come in and let us help you make them happen!
See you soon!
