Shop Announcements
End of the Month, End of the Bolt Sale!
Well here we are, still squeaking around with the Cat away.  We survived the Annual Inventory Sale, and then the extended book and Jim Shore sale.  Wow!  It's been so busy.   My goodness are we ever tired!  That's why we still haven't put away the books or the Jim Shore figurines.  Soooooo, we mice have decided to extend the sale of books and Jim Shore figurines through the End of the Month, End of the Bolt sale.  Yes, that's right.  We are going to continue with the book and Jim Shore sale through Wednesday, July 31st.
Remember, when you purchase all the remaining fabric on a bolt you receive 30% off that fabric!  We originated this 30% off sale several years ago and it remains a real success.  30% is a great discount - this is the perfect time to come in and get your backings to finish up those pesky UFO's or to start your Christmas quilting.    
Again, please don't tell the Cat, but we are keeping ALL books at 40% off and ALL Jim Shore figurines at 50% off because, quite honestly, we still don't have the energy to put them away!  


We have plenty of Edyta Sitar, Kim Diehl, Camille Roskelley, Malka Dubrawsky books, just to name a few!  Help us empty those tables so we don't have to carry them to the back room!  Squeak,  squeak!
It's Shop Challenge Time!  
It's challenge time again!  For the first time ever we have chosen a Civil War grouping for our challenge.  So, to all of our Civil War groupies, this challenge is for you!  To our quilters who have held back from dipping your toe in the Civil War waters, maybe this is the time for you to do so.  And lastly, to all of you bright and light girls out there, maybe the real challenge this year is to turn these fabrics into a light and bright fiesta! 


We look forward ever year to seeing your creative projects and this year is no different!  


**And just so you know, Becky was trying to make a challenge entry using the pseudonym, Rebecca Midas.  I caught her.  Epic fail.  As can be expected, now she won't talk to me.  It might have something to do with her having laryngitis, but I think it's has more to do with the disqualification...  you decide.
