This weekend only

When it comes to discounting, we don't monkey around. The big box stores must be doing something right to have gotten so big, so we're willing to emulate them (except for maybe Hancock's).

Just a bit of "monkey see, monkey do," and so with that in mind we're flinging out this offer:
30% OFF

Take 30 percent off any single regular price item, including fabric cuts up to 3 yards.

We are excluding items that are always at cost plus -- rotary blades, Best Press -- as well as sewing machines and consignment items.

This sale runs today, Saturday and Sunday, don't miss!
Sewing Machines!
This Singer Featherweight 221 needs to be seen to be fully appreciated -- the paint costs $200.00 per ounce and is called "Chrome Illusion" color-changing paint. As you walk past, the paint refracts in six different colors!

Better Light
Jeremi has LED light bulbs to fit virtually every sewing machine. Yours for just $12.99. Easy as changing a light bulb. Bring yours in for matching. If you need help, bring in your machine.
With ultra sparkle metallic flake, this machine glistens and gleams..

She's headed to her new home, with Barbara Z.

Friday, 4/19
5:30-8:30 p.m.
Saturday, 4/20
8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

(We've had a sneek peek at April's fabrics!)

Learn to Use

This is the first class in our Quilting 1 - 4 series.

Just 2 seats left!

New arrivals -- come see!
Amy Butler's Final Collection:
Natural Beauty
Says Amy Butler:
 “The wonderful thing about making art is finding creative fire, love, passion, excitement, and pure joy in the little everyday things. I feel fortunate to be on my path, nurturing my creative spark, and I love hearing about other like-minded folks who are finding theirs! It's a beautiful process, we're all in it together... growing, learning and becoming."

This collection brings it all home with the palette you've come to know and love in Amy's fabrics and the blending of floral and geometric motifs that only she seems to be able to bring together in quite this way.

Called "Out of Print"
Which isn't going to cause any trouble at all. Like the license plate in town that is personalized to say "BLANK" or the man in England who changed his last name to "Null" and apparently now receives free car rentals and hotel rooms.

For the first fabric, Robert Kaurman probably actually stole the lists from your purse -- UFOs, Guild attendees and other quilting-related stuff. The other, well, that's all your horrible memories from Calc.

If you are so kind as to give them one of the mugs, kitchen towels or tape measures featuring vintage Simplicity pattern artwork. They are one size fits all. (Those Butterick patterns were always a bit more challenging.)

Batty for Batiks?
You'll love the new Calypso Batik collection, by Kate Spain.

With her inimitable eye for color, these batiks will bring the flair to your project with geometric motifs that add a modern twist to the traditional process of batik dyeing.

Paper Art Safari
Paper Art Safari by Whistler Studios evokes an adventurous day on the Serengeti. Hot days and cool nights surrounded by wildlife. Make a quilt from this collection and you'll never have to go on safari again!

Growth chart panel shown; science theme fabrics are part of this collection
Cat Happy by Windham
Featured in this collection: White and black cats, black and white cats, paw prints, fish bones and a nearly Cheshire cat's whiskers-only appearance (actually that was a grin, wasn't it? "I've often seen a cat without a grin, but I've never seen a grin without a cat.").

Two-color cats are "piebalds" and obviously better than any old calico. There are many variants depending upon the markings, but a high-grade white 6 or 7 approaching a "Van" pattern is arguably the best of all ('cause that's my kitty!)

Dog Fabric
For those who prefer dogs
We're bringing in "Urban Jungle" by Camelot Fabrics. This whimsical take on a dog's life features Dachsunds, Dalmatians, and let's say a, uh, mixed breed.

The panel is 18 inches wide by width of fabric.

Dachshunds were bred to go after badgers. Those short legs are an advantage when going into burrows.

Dalmatians were bred as carriage dogs, to run alongside horse drawn carriages. If you get enough of them, you can make an absolutely elegant and splendid coat . . . if you're Cruella deVil.

And, well, mixed breed dogs are just . . . fine.
Day in Paris
Moda's Zen Chic design team is tagging this "Live La Vie en Rose" which is a little odd since it's mostly blacks, blues and greens.

Nonetheless, we're inspired by the strong geometrics which are evocative of 1950s modernist motifs.

Edith Piaf would surely sing the praises of this collection.

Occupied? Resistance won't work in this case. You don't need a passport -- real or counterfeit -- to enjoy this collection.
Origami by Moda
Muted tones featuring time-honored Japanese motifs -- willow branches, plum blossoms, origami cranes and more. These fabrics will work into almost any quilt you're making that is calling for quieter colors.

Or use to make your 100 and how many kimonos have you made up by now, Lily?
to look
a lot like . . .
Holiday fabrics are going to be arriving soon.
