Challenge - Free Fabric for you

... all you have to do is make something with it.

What's the deets you ask? It is really simple. We will give you a mini charm pack of Modern Background Paper, a fat eighth of Arrow fabric from Lori Holt's Modern Minis, and a Fat Quarter of the Word Find fabric from Melody Miller. The only catch... you have to make something and you have to have an Instagram account and post progress photos in which you tag us @intrepidthread and hashtag #intrepidthreadchallenge


You can add other fabrics as you desire since I am sponsoring. It would be nice if you used fabrics that we carry.

We will have a grand reveal in January and one lucky winner will get a $50 gift certificate for the shop.
All given out sorry...! All you have to do is comment below to get one. Make sure I can contact you by leaving your email address. By doing this you are agreeing to make an item with the fabric and send me a picture. If you do not have something made in January for the final reveal  I will be asking you to reimburse me for the fabric and shipping, I think that is fair.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for another announcement :)

Lots of new fun stuff in the shop....

Hi Everyone,

I know I have been really quiet lately... the busies seem to have taken over my life :) But I wanted to show you all the fun new fabrics that we got in.

I love, love, love the colors and designs in The Lovely Hunt by Lizzy House... well of course I do :) it is gorgeous!


We also got this gorgeous collection from Joel Dewberry called Atrium I love it as much as I loved Heirloom and that is saying something.



We got Succulence by Bonnie Christine... it has all of those colors you all love so much... the figgy greens and plums. The designs are fresh and lovely. I have an idea for a terrarium quilt with this.


We received this sweet collection by Dear Stella that reminds me so much of Liberty prints. It is called Enchanted.  There are deer (I can't help it) foxes, bunnies, and Bees. Also they mixed into the collection this new blender called Net (you can see it below in the yellow, aqua, pink and navy) which we stocked in all the colors available.


And for something completely different... yes, I went there. Some of you who have been around for a while know that I collect these strange dolls called Asian Ball Jointed dolls... they have a sad sweet quality that really appeals to me. So when I saw Mirabelle I could not resist her... now I know this is not my usual style but I just keep thinking how I would like to take a few of the motifs and make them into bags and aprons and things ... she has a steam punk/shabby chic/thing all rolled into one and well... Here are the two main prints... I stocked a few others to go along with them too..



One last little thing... I love large font for all things (banners, pillows, scrap booking)  so I stocked this fun fabric with large font for making all those sorts of things. It is called Letter Stitch. There are a few prints in different fonts with black or white backgrounds... and of course a script on white because I can't resist those. **Wink


I hope you enjoyed our virtual shop tour :)

Who Remembers Fat Quarter Tuesday?

Remember we give you 5 bundles to choose from at an amazing price and you have to race to see who can get them first? It was really hard for us because we hate disappointing you guys. So I suspended it for a time to try to rework it... This time the bundles are still limited but there are more than one of each. So hopefully you will have a chance at the one you really want. It is 12 Fat Quarters for just $21... really, can you beat it? I think not. Here are the 5 bundles.
Tomorrow when I am ready... I will post the picture again with a number on each stack and a link to the listing to buy them. It will be so much fun! We will make this a regular feature again with new bundles each Tuesday.

If you live in the Sacramento area....

This is a quick public service announcement...

My friend Janice is opening a sew lounge in Sacramento called Sewn Stitch Studio. A great place to go and sew if you don't have space at home or in your dorm, or if you just want to hang out with like minded people. She will have fun classes (looks like an open sew  at 6pm on the 11th) and has a small rotating stock of fabrics from my shop that I am curating for her. So you will have to go check her out...
