Mother's Day Celebration S A L E
As Mother’s Day is rushing upon us we hope this note finds all of you well. This is just a brief note to tell you of some last minute Mother’s Day Specials and Gift Ideas throughout the month of May:
*Best Press – The great and flavor rich starch alternative (plus it last longer than that bouquet you were thing about getting her).
Impregnated with heavenly aromas and pastel spring colors it can make ironing almost a sinful experience!
Personally I am still waiting for a chocolate chip cookie flavor – you know it smells like cookies cooking when you touch a hot iron to the fabric - Low in cholesterol, sodium, sugar free, no free radicals - I wonder how many calories are involved in smell??! Well until they invent my “flavor” we have in stock the following gallon refill flavors:
Now for the really important part – Regular Price is $43.50/ gal
The Mother’s Day Special Price $35.99/gallon!!!
This special price is for the gallon refills only. Get yours now at this price because they will not last long.
Unfortunately, due to postal regulations and associated shipping costs we are unable to ship this product at this time – Simply put – You have to pick it up.
*Gift Certificates – Great for those mothers and mother-in-laws visiting Antarctica, living in 60’ s free love communes, or just far away. The great news is you can purchase them 24/7 online at threadbearfabrics.com (just click on “Shop Online”) and you can purchase them any amount - say the day she became a mother – your birthday 07-15-93 becomes – a gift certificate for $71,593 – talk about a Mother’s Day Gift !! What better way to “best” your younger sister – after all, remember, we are a competitive species.
*Fabric – Feeling guilt over the mother-in-law – “The woman just doesn’t like me” feeling – Time for quilt therapy - “Quilt to Eliminate Guilt”.
We have a great selection of Quilt Shop Quality fabrics from most of the revered fabric companies including but not limited to Moda, Hoffman, Kaufman, Windham, Michael Miller, Free Spirit, and many, many more. Plus, we have these at great prices. The great thing is they are now on sale - 20% 0FF the current sale price!!!
Note: 20% off does not apply to Randy's fabrics that are specially priced at $4.99 per yard. These are located in the "$4.99 Fabrics - Final Reduction" category. This is a new category and we will be going through some of our older fabrics and marking them down over the next few months. Time to move them out and make room for the fabrics that we are still taking out of the boxes!
So, come on in grab some quality fabrics at great prices – go home quilt – then show your finished project to the mother-in- law – feel good – you have done something she hasn’t or can’t. Guilt? What guilt?
Aurifil Thread – Get it while you can. We normally sell this high quality thread (1,422 yard spool) for $12.99 (retail is $14.00 per spool). But for our Mother's Day sale, we have it specially priced of $10.99/spool.
In addition as a special Mother's Day Offering, if you purchase 11 or more of the 1,422 yard spools, we will include an Aurifil Transparent Plastic Sectioned Reusable Thread Case (holds 12 spools) with a Spool of Aurifil White Included. FREE - yeah - that's right FREE - when you buy 11 more Aurifil 1,422 yard spools of thread. The normal retail price of the case with the spool of white thread is $15.00.
Buy you mother a bouquet of thread - just as colorful as flowers and she will enjoy them a lot longer!
We have only get 30 of these in stock. So when they are gone - they are gone. Besides the FREE case and the FREE white spool of thread - the great thing is you get to pick the colors you want to fill the case.
Note: If the demand for this special exceeds the stock, I will take names and reorder the case/spool combination if it is still available.
Everybody offers the pre-made sets from the designers from $130 - $145 a set, but you do not get to pick the colors. If you want all grey, all black, all basics, all variegated, or a mix - have at it - your choice! You get to pick the colors of the 11 spools.
Please note that we will include the free case and spool automatically with the purchase of the 11 or more spools of thread. You need do nothing when you order online or make the purchase in the shop. Limit one case per customer.
For those of you unfamiliar with Aurifill, it is a low lent, low frey high quality cotton thread which makes sewing far less stressful - it is the difference between eating a loaded hot baked potato with butter, bacon and barbecue vs eating a potato raw out of the bag.
Books – Plenty of books filled with exciting projects from you favorite quilters. The best part – they are all 20% off our sell price! Remember, when your mom lectured you how important reading was – now you can tell her the same.
Patterns – We have over 900 patterns – that is what I know about – no telling how many are in Janet’s unopened boxes. The good thing is they are all 20% off our sale price for the Mother’s Day Sale !

From Randy's Desk:
Although, I loved my sainted mother immensely, there are some things just universal to all mothers - like NAGGING. I guess there must be some kind of school for it. If so, my mom was at the top of the class, but I am positive I was not the only one to undergo this right of passage:
Mona Lisa's Mother: "After all that money your father and I spent on braces, Mona, that's the biggest smile you can give us?
Humpty Dumpty's Mother: "Humpty, If I've told you once, I've told you a hundred times not to sit on that wall. But would you listen to me? Noooo!"
Columbus' Mother: "I don't care what you've discovered, Christopher. You still could have written!"
Michelangelo's Mother: "Mike, can't you paint on walls like other children? Do you have any idea how hard it is to get that stuff off the ceiling?"
Abraham Lincoln's Mother: "Again with the stovepipe hat, Abe? Can't you just wear a baseball cap like the other kids?"
Barney's Mother: "I realize strained plums are your favorite, Barney, but you're starting to look a little purple."
Mary's Mother: "I'm not upset that your lamb followed you to school, Mary, but I would like to know how he got a better grade than you."
Batman's Mother: "It's a nice car, Bruce, but do you realize how much the insurance is going to be?"
Little Miss Muffet's Mother: "Well, all I've got to say is if you don't get off your tuffet and start cleaning your room, there'll be a lot more spiders around here!"
Albert Einstein's Mother: "But, Albert, it's your senior picture. Can't you do something about your hair? Styling gel, mousse, something...?"
George Washington's Mother: "The next time I catch you throwing money across the Potomac , you can kiss your allowance good-bye!"
Jonah's Mother: "That's a nice story, but now tell me where you've really been for the last three days.
Thomas Edison's Mother: "Of course I'm proud that you invented the electric light bulb, Thomas. Now turn off that light and get to bed!"
Of course my mother believed in a good education. She was always seeking to teach me basic principles, concepts, and the foundations of living a good life. For example:
Reason: "Because I said so, that's why."
Religion: "You better pray that will come out of the carpet."
Interdenominational Time Travel: "If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"
Foresight and Planning: "Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident."
Irony: "Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about."
The Science of Osmosis:” Shut your mouth and eat your supper!"( I loved this one when we had Brussel Sprouts!)
Contortionism and Yoga: "Will you “look’ at all the dirt on the back of your neck!"
Stamina: "You'll sit there 'til you finish all those Brussel sprouts.”
Weather: "It looks as if a tornado swept through your room."
Physics Problems: "If I yelled because I saw a train coming toward you; would you listen then?"
Hypocrisy: "If I've told you once, I've told you a million times - Don't Exaggerate!!!"
The Circle Of Life: "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out."
Envy: "There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do!"
Logic (if P then Q)... "If you fall off that swing and break your neck, you can't go to the store with me."
Medicine... "If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they're going to freeze that way."
To Think Ahead... "If you don't pass your spelling test, you'll never get a good job!" Mom I can’t spell – guess that’s why I’m working in a quilt store!
ESP ... "Put your sweater on; don't you think that I know when you're cold?" (I always new my mom had superpowers – that’s how she knew I was doing something wrong!)
Challenging Situations and Confusion... "What were you thinking? Answer me when I talk to you...Don't talk back to me!"
Humor and Sarcasm ... "When you cut off your toes with that lawn mower, don't come running to me."
Become an Adult... "If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up. Now, I know why Janet calls me childish!
Sage Wisdom... "When you get to be my age, you will understand."
Anticipation... "Just wait until your father gets home."
The importance of giving... "You are going to get it when I get home."
Belief in Evolution... " If you don't stop, I'M going to jerk a knot in your tail!"
Justice... "One day you will have kids, and I hope they turn out just like YOU..Then you'll see what it's like."
Finally, sometimes even the best of intentions go sideways - especially on Holidays - even Mother's Day.
Three sons, who were very successful, and very competitive met to discuss the gifts they gave their elderly mother on Mother's day.
The first said, "I built a big house for Mom!"
The second said," Well, I sent her a Mercedes!"
The third said," I smoked all of you. I've got you both beat. I have been planning this for such a long time! You know how Mom enjoys the Bible, and you know she can't see very well. So, I sent her a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took 20 monks in a monastery 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000.00 a year for 10 years, but it was worth it. Mom just has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."
Soon thereafter, Mom mailed her letters of thanks to the respective children.
To the first son she wrote:
"Michael, the house you built is too large. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house."
To the second son she wrote:
"Marvin, I'm nearly blind so I can't drive. I stay home all the time, so I never use the Mercedes."
To Dilbert, her third son she wrote:
You were the only son to have the good sense to know what your mother likes. That chicken was delicious!"
Until next time, we at Thread Bear Fabrics would like to sincerely wish all of you a Happy and Joyous Mother’s Day.
Best Wishes for a Happy Mother’s Day,
