Our Annual No Foolin' Sale and Big Shop News!

Hi Everyone,

See below for all of the new gorgeous fabric we have in stock. But first please read our big news:

Big news for those that are in store customers and I suppose for online customers as well. We are closing the brick and mortar shop as of April 30th. I know this will throw some of you for a loop. I am so sorry to announce it this way but this seemed the best way to get the news out to everyone at the same time.

Before rumors start or anything like that it isn't because I am going out of business. I have found it increasingly hard to keep up with everything that needs to be handled at the brick and mortar shop and all of my health issues after the heart attack I had in November, but I love this business that I built and I am not letting it go. I just need to have it work around my schedule again.

This change won't make any difference in service to our online customers you shouldn't even notice the change at all.

We will be in the current building until October and if you normally pick up items in the shop you can still do that on Wednesday afternoon/evenings and Fridays. If you come for open sew or Guild meetings you can still do that and purchase items while you are in the shop. After October I plan to move to a smaller space and again you should be able to pick up from there if you like as well.

If you are coming from out of town you are still welcome to come visit (I would be sad if you didn't) just message me and let me know so that I can be here with bells on to meet you.

Since my husband and I made this decision last week I feel my creative energy returning. I can't wait to have time to get back to doing the things I love most. Writing tutorials and patterns and interacting with my customers more. The blog will get fired up again and you will be seeing a lot more fun things coming from me.

Now for something way more fun and interesting. Our Annual No Foolin' Sale. Every year we have a huge sale on April 1st and that is No Foolin'!






No Foolin': We are having a sale with hundreds of fabrics priced from $4 to $8 per yard. From tonight at midnight Eastern 9pm Pacific to Saturday noon Eastern 9am Pacific. ** Please do not use any other coupons or discounts with this sale. When you click on the "Shop" tab on the website the sale section will pop up first. Things will sell out fast. If we are out of something we will refund you. If there is anything that you buy that you must have a certain amount of yardage on let us know by email otherwise we will send what is available. Also please give us some extra time for shipping. Our last sale took us about a week to complete shipping we do them in the order they come in but sometimes it takes quite a while to get through them all.

These are the great fabrics that just came in:


Heather Ross' Mendocino
 We have been waiting years for this haven't we? I have full bundles left so come get them before they are gone.


 And Black + White 2016 from Cotton + Steel  is here


We also have Chipper Bundles reloaded




So much fun!

  8. Running a shop is a lot of work, and the sad truth is it often keeps a person too busy to do the sewing they love. Sorry to hear of your heart attack. Perhaps you could have a partner who managed the shop? Hope you can get back some time to do the things you enjoy--and feel better!
