Announcements & Special Events

Our 4th Annual Anniversary Sale is this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 28-30.  Yes, I've had the shop for 4 years now, and it's time to celebrate!   How about a 20% discount storewide and some wonderful prizes?  Come escape the heat, save money on gorgeous fabrics and more, and have some fun!  (Discount applies only to items in stock that have not been previously discounted.) 


We will be closed on Thursday, July 4, for the Independence Day holiday. 

The Northern State River Run 10th Anniversary Party on the River is Wednesday, September 11, through Saturday, September 14.  There are 13 shops participating and every shop will have a fun party theme and will be open from 9:00am to 7:00pm each day.  There are lots of fabulous prizes, including a grand prize of a Bernina 350 sewing machine and thirteen first prizes of a $100 gift certificate from one of the participating shops!  And....there will be a 15% discount on regularly priced fabric, notions, books, and patterns at each store!  So mark your calendar, get a group of your quilting friends together, and start making plans!

New Fabrics and More

From Wilmington Prints, we received Mangia! Mangia!, a collection of funny chefs that includes an apron panel and a placemat panel.  This will be great for adding a touch of whimsy to your home and it will make wonderful gifts. 



Simply Sweet is a just that, a sweet collection of prints for children's quilts, pillowcases, garments, and more. 


There are more additions to Embellishments by South Sea Imports.  This is a beautiful tonal-print collection that will be the perfect complement to bolder prints, or these pieces could be used on their own. 


And...we have more scary and funny Halloween prints!  (What's really scary is how many we have now!) 



We also have some new flannels and Hawaiian prints, and we are building up quite a gorgeous stash of Christmas fabrics, which we'll be putting out next week!
