March Madness (and I'm not referring to roundball)!!!
Dear Quilting Friends,
Let's get mad about March! Hopefully this is the last month of winter, but I could not believe that we had snow one day after it was in the high 50s! This weather is definitely crazy. The weather forecast is like the stock market - high and low and just plain erratic.
Now if you ask Randy about March Madness, he is talking basketball playoffs. Both Randy and I went to ACC schools and basketball is the sport in North Carolina. When the UNC Chapel Hill Tarheels and Wolfpack of NC State play, Randy and I are in different corners. Randy tells very bad agricultural jokes so you can figure out from which school he graduated. Ahh the days of Dean Smith and Jimmy V are long gone, but the legends do still live on.
But I digress. The March Madness I'm referring to is the sale that I just implemented. I have been meeting with some of my fabric reps and the shear number of fabrics I have ordered!! - I must be mad! Where am I going to put them and no, sky hooks are not an option! I'm not tall enough to reach some of the fabrics now! So my mad love of fabrics will translate into great savings for you. Until March 31st the following will be on sale:
*All charm packs & layer cakes are 25% off
*Maxilock Solids Serger Thread - $3.25 per cone
*Kit clearance - 25% off all kits in stock
I have hundreds on bolts of fabric on sale, but this month use the March Madness coupon code for an additional 15% off all fabrics sold by the yard except for the "DEALS" fabrics.
The "DEALS" fabrics are at least 25% off the price per yard. I have a special link on the home page for these collections and precuts. The DEALS collections are specially priced for just for a short period of time, so check them out. Every week I am adding new collections. I have a list of the collections under DEALS listed on the home page.
For the additional 15% off all fabric yardage (except DEALS) use the
March Madness Coupon Code: MAD
Please note that all of the sale prices are programmed into the website. Use the coupon code "MAD" and receive an additional 15% off the price shown in the website.
Sample of Savings:

My need to clear the shelves to make room for the new fabrics translates into great savings for you.
