The Scary Time of Year! Sale
Dear Quilting Friends,
Fall has finally arrived. The temperature is cooler and hopefully the rain will subside soon. I am still hoping to see some fall leaves in the mountains this year if they are not downed by the rain. It also means that the end of the year is just around the corner and the holiday season is now upon us. Halloween signals all things scary - monsters, witches, ghosts and goblins and taxes!
While you may be able to appease the monsters, witches and others with a couple pieces of candy unfortunately the government would probably consider candy an attempt to bribe them. So what does this mean for you? It's time for my annual scary sale otherwise know of my inventory tax sale.
This year in itself has been scary. Like so many merchants the supply line has made life difficult. The start of the year saw many shortages in inventory - not able to get fabric and other products in the shop. Now all of the backlog of fabric orders are starting to arrive. You can witness this by just walking in the shop. No I am not trying to build a blockade in front of my desk, it is just some of the packages that have arrived that we are trying to check in. Unfortunately this is not all of the boxes that are pending processing. Our van is acting as a storage unit as well as every extra nook and cranny in the shop I can find. Bottom line - I need room and that translates to moving some fabrics (and no Joseph I am not talking about you rearranging the shelves for once).
Our scary sale will start on Halloween and go until Saturday, November 16th. Use coupon code "tax21" to receive 15% off you order. The sale will not apply to contract items such as Creative Grid rules or final clearance items such as the $4.99 fabric table. It's a great time to pick your next project or buy that quilting buddy a Christmas gift. Or if you are trying to finish a quilt for Christmas, we have well over 100 bolts of backing in stock to pick from. Bottom line - we have a great inventory to select from and more arriving everyday. Please check out out new arrivals on our website home page. Thread Bear Fabrics
Now on a personal note, I would like to thank everyone for the well wishes for Randy. It has been a rough 4 weeks since his surgery. He has tried to come into the shop a couple of times, but he is just not strong enough yet. We appreciate all the kind notes, thoughts and prayers. I hope he will be strong enough to see everyone soon.
We hope everyone has a safe Halloween. Until next time,
In Randy's spirit...
