A Jump Start on our Annual 4th of July Sale

Hi Everyone,

We are having our Annual 4th of July Clearance Sale early, because I am taking a vacation for the first time since we opened the shop 5 yrs ago.



http://www.intrepidthread.com

You can take 20% off everything in stock in the shop, all of those awesome new patterns, new fabrics, and even the clearance section. Sale ends Midnight on Monday 6/28/15.

Coupon Code is VACAY20 it is not valid on gift certificates or pre-orders.

Reminder:


Our website does not hold inventory that is in your cart which means sometimes we will run out of something that you ordered before we get to your order. We cut everything in the order that it was received but it is possible someone might check out with it before you do. In this case we will let you know right away. Please be certain that the email that you use when checking out is one at which we can contact you. Also shipping can take a few extra days due to the number of orders.

A Giveaway and Other News

Hey Everyone,

I am sorry it has been so quiet around here... We are gearing up for Shop Hop By The Bay which starts next Wednesday. We will have a trunk show of Alison Glass' Quilts from Market. If you love Alison and Angela Walters you don't want to miss it. Tons of new notions are coming in today and new displays... it is going to be a busy weekend.

We are sponsoring a giveaway on Maureen's Blog today for this pattern and the fabric to make it.

Head on over to Maureen's blog for a chance to win. The weather is already getting really hot here and that would be the perfect Summer dress.

Spellbound from Cotton + Steel arrived and it is so fun...  I love the motifs in this... especially the ghost dresses... and the mummies :)

Great Minds Think Alike

Just as I was signing on this morning to write this post Carolyn Friedlander posted about the quilt I am about to post about. Definitely go check out her post to see some tantalizing close ups.

One of the things I was most excited about at Market a couple weeks ago was the proliferation of hand work for Modern Quilters. I think Carolyn is a wonderful ambassador for slow sewing. Did you guys watch her seminar on the MQG website last week?

We are kitting this 9 month BOM pattern by Carolyn and we have the pattern available separately as well in case you want to use your own fabrics. The best part is that you can join us for "Slow Sewing Saturdays" which will be scheduled at the shop to work on your quilt and get some personal hand sewing time in.

A picture I took of the quilt at Quilt Market in Minneapolis
The kits will be available to ship by the end of July June. One of the fabrics is back ordered until then. There are also a couple fabrics in the quilt that are no longer available but we will replace them with something beautiful and similar in color and scale. We are taking pre-orders for kits here. If you want just the pattern it is available here.

We also will have kits available for the Austin House Quilt (this is one of the patterns that Carolyn taught at Quiltcon) you can pre-order those here. If you want the pattern only it is available here.



One fabric announcement:

 Tinsel has arrived and it is so gorgeous...
