...in the shop now...high society from anthology fabrics...

Anthology Fabrics is new to the fabric scene, but they've already got a winner with Khristian A. Howell's High Society collection.  This line comes in 3 colorways and we opted for the perfect-for-Fall palette which includes rich browns, grays, oranges and yellows.  Lovely mums, dainty flowers, fun paisleys and bright orbs are sure to liven up any Fall outfit. 


We were informed by Anthology that they won't be reordering this collection (hopefully they change their mind!) and several prints have sold out already.  Sooo, get some while you can!  And since we have the 10% off promotion going on through tomorrow, now's a great time to get it!

And a BIG reminder that the shop will be closed for about a week from 10/21 - 10/28 so make sure you get your orders in soon!

See you in the shop!

...a sale & an announcement...

First up, the announcement!  We'll be taking a break from the store (starting 10/21) for about a week or so - doctor's orders!  I'm having a small procedure done that's nothing big (for the worriers or curious - it's just to remove some tissue where nerves are wreaking havoc!), but requires me not to do much lifting for a couple weeks.  Which means I can't lug around bolts of fabric!  So we - and I do me "we" this time - are taking a break from work...I'll be resting and Hubby will be waiting on me hand and foot! :) 

We're going to play the store re-opening date by ear, but it will probably be 10/29 - in time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival (more on that in a future post!).  I'll be checking in here and on Twitter and Facebook so you'll have access to details.  Once we re-open, we'll have a modified inventory - patterns, books and pre-cuts - available for roughly another week.  Then hopefully we can get back to full inventory mode!

Now, on to the sale!

Tomorrow 10/16 through Wednesday 10/20, take 10% off your order (excludes items in the Clearance section) with the code "FALL10".  You must enter the code in Notes to Seller during checkout for a refund, or send us a convo for a custom listing that includes the code.  We love setting up custom listings for these types of sales because everything is accurate - fabric prices, shipping - and you don't have to wait for a refund!  Either way is fine with us, just make sure you include the code! :)

Also, stay tuned for a giveaway in November through Fat Quarterly!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and takes advantage of that 10% code!!

See you in the shop!

...in the shop now...sew liberated patterns...

Meg from Sew Liberated has been designing patterns for a while, but we've just recently started stocking some of her patterns.  We love the wide variety of patterns that she creates...from women's clothing to children's clothing to accessories.  We picked a few of our favorites to test out in the shop and if you all love them, we'll order more!  Check out what's available in the shop now...

 What do we love about these patterns? 

Huck Finn:  Besides the model being adorable, it's the cutest little hat! 
Schoolhouse Tunic:  It just looks so comfy! 
Mei Tai Baby Carrier:  It's versatile - it can be worn in the front or back!
Sunday Picnic Blouse & Dress:  Can you say 2 patterns in 1?! And the wrap style looks great on so many different body types!

So what's your favorite?  Have you ever sewn a SL pattern before?  Share your thoughts with us all!

See you in the shop!

...on sale now...colorful christmas, fandango & pink fig...

We have more great sales for you this week!  Fandango pre-cuts are 20% off - Charm Packs, Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls are all available.  We also have 1 FQ bundle in stock and at 20% off, it's a perfect time to buy it!

Have you started your Christmas projects and presents yet?  Now's a good time if you haven't because we've marked down Riley Blake's Colorful Christmas flannel to only $7.50/yd!  This flannel is SO soft and would make perfect pj's!  Choose from several great colors and designs including Christmas trees, snowmen, mittens and snowflakes.

We've also marked down Pink Fig Patterns to 20% off!  These patterns are great to make any time of the year because many can easily be modified by wearing a long sleeve shirt or leggings during cooler months.

And a reminder that Happy Campers and Whimsy pre-cuts are 35% off while supplies last, plus there are lots of prints in the $6.50 or less section!

Hope you're all having a great weekend...see you in the shop!

...in the shop now...bliss by bonnie & camille...

Just about everyone has seen Bliss so I won't go on and on about it, other than to say Bonnie & Camille have created yet another beautiful line for Moda.  I'm a sucker for anything aqua, so this line is right up my alley.  I have to admit that my favorite print from the line ending up being...a floral!  Gasp!  I don't usually love florals, but Paisley in Creamy is awesome!  So without further ado, here's what you can find in the shop...

COTTON PRE-CUTS:  Charm Packs, Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls (includes prints from whole collection)

FLANNEL PRE-CUTS:  FQ Bundles (includes 9 prints from the collection)


Paisley in Creamy

Marmalade in Aqua

Medallion in Aqua

Fresh in Scarlet

In Bloom in Aqua

Check in Aqua

Polka in Scarlet

Tulip in Aqua

Plus we have several fantastic patterns by Bonnie (Cotton Way) and Camille (Thimble Blossoms) so don't forget to check those out too!  Many of them are Layer Cake and Jelly Roll friendly!

So what do you think of Bliss?  Do you want it?  Do you have it?  Have you made anything with it?  Let us know, we'd love to hear what you think!

See you in the shop!

...in the shop now...dream on pre-cuts by urban chiks...

I'm not normally a "flower" person, but I love this collection!  Dream On is the newest line from Urban Chiks for Moda and it delivers loads of color and design.  I don't know if it's meant to have a vintage feel, but it reminds me of a sheet set my older sister had in the early 80's...maybe that's part of why I like it so much - because it has a homey feel to it.  Regardless, it's a great line for both young girls and us, ahem, older girls too! 

Some of my favorite prints from the collection:

Charm Packs, Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls now available for purchase!

...on sale now...lollipop pre-cuts & $6.50 prints...

This week we marked down lots of prints to $6.50 and you can find them in the newly named $6.50 OR LESS section.  Clever name, we know, but "Clearance/Sale" just wasn't cutting it.  Not all of the prints in this section will stay here forever - some are just there for a limited time so if you see something you like, you better get it!  Stock in this section will typically change on Fridays so this is your heads up as to when to make purchases by.

For the quilters, we've marked down Sandy Gervais' Lollipop pre-cuts to 20% off!  Stock up on these fun prints with great Fall colors!  And remember today is an overlap sale day, so Lumiere de Noel pre-cuts are still 20% off, but through today only!  We've also further marked down remaining Whimsy and Happy Campers pre-cuts to 35% off.  Stock is very limited so get them while you can!  Oh, and discounts apply to these sets too!

Finally, we're having a special weekend only sale on Patty Young Knits - 30% off!!  If you're doing the math, that's OVER $3.00 OFF PER YARD!  Crazy, we know, but we HAVE to make shelf space (with fabric that's 60" wide, the bolts are gigantic)!  So please help us out by clearing us out of knits!  We still have a couple of Patty's knits patterns available also!

Sale end dates are as follows:
Lumiere de Noel pre-cuts:  Today (10/1)
Patty Young Knits:  10/4
Lollipop pre-cuts:  10/8

Wishing you all a happy weekend and lots of sewing time!

See you in the shop!
