|All Halloween Fabric is 20% off starting tomorrow, Saturday, September 28. The sale will continue through Halloween. (This sale cannot be combined with other discounts and is limited to stock on hand.)
We've received lots of new ribbons, including several that are elasticized, and some very cute dotted ric rac that would be adorable on little girls' dresses.
From Moda, we have "Giggles". In addition to several bolts from this line, we also have charm packs and jelly rolls. This is a bright, colorful collection that will make cute quilts and garments.
From Marcus, we have a fun flannel children's line, "Jamboree", featuring whimsical animals, dots, and argyle prints. These would make wonderful rag quilts and pajamas. It would also be great for the 16-square quilt trimmed with jumbo ric rac.
We've also received a lot of fun prints from Alexander Henry, and "Midwinter Reds", also from Moda. This is a collection of stripes in cream and barn red--great for home dec and Christmas projects.
