Is It Spring Yet?
I don't know if it is just me or not, but does it seem that the weather patterns are getting crazier? We had two weeks of steaming hot weather, then it turns cold (after all it is winter), then you would have thought it was April with all the showers, then all all things - 2 to 3 inches of snow! I really am not sure of the season, but I am sure that it is not Spring yet.
But in spite of the weather, I am in a Spring cleaning mood. Joseph and Randy have been working very hard rearranging the shop. They think they have all the fabric put up, but then the deliveries come. I have been warned that we are out of shelf space, but this is not new is it? They know that I have been seeing fabric reps lately and I have ordered quite a few collections that will be shipping over the next several months, so I guess I better think about moving out some of the older fabric to make room for the new or I will never hear the end of it.
So starting today and going until March 1st the following fabric brands are 25% off.
* Blank Quilting
* Free Spirit
* M&S Textiles
* Maywood Studio
* Washington Street Studio
* Wilmington Prints
You can view the fabric line inventory on the home page of the webstore under "featured categories".
Use coupon code "Sweep" at checkout to receive the discount.
The fat quarters in the suite 600 boxes will still be on sale for $1.80, but only until the end of the month. More FQs are added every week, so be sure and check out the selections.
All of our older kits are 30% off on final markdown. Please be sure to check them out and new kits are starting to arrive.
Some of our new fabric lines that are now available are:
Hello World (re-intoduced)
Diamond Dust (metallic basic)
Full Circle, a reproduction line from Marcus
and the first few bolts of a new Northcott line called Eclipse
These fabrics can be viewed at:
