Boxing Day Sale... Get what you really wanted for Christmas.

Friday, December 26, 2014
Hi Everyone,

I just decided... of course at the last minute... to have a sale today. The Brick and Mortar is closed so the sale is only online for 26 hrs on the 26th :) Ending the 27th at 1p.m. Eastern.

20% off with this coupon code BOXING20. This excludes gift certificates, pre-orders, BOMs, and clubs. Please be patient with shipping since we only have a few working days next week. Also be certain to use an email address that you can be reached at in case we run out of things as often happens with sales.

Thanks so much!

It's true I just got shipping confirmation for the Fat Quarter Bundles. If you would like to pre-order a fat quarter bundle you can find it here Awesome Sauce Fabric it should be in in a few days. Then hopefully the yardage will be in in the next week or so.

Address to send blocks

You can find the address for the shop (which is the best place to post them to) on the contact page on the website here:

Lisa, I am sorry you are no contact so I didn't have your email.

Quilt Block Drive for Sydney Heroes

Hey Everyone,

My friend  Molli Sparkles is organizing a quilt block drive to make quilts for the families of the two heroes that lost their lives in the stand off in Sydney. Since shipping is expensive I am willing to collect the blocks and ship them all at once. They will only take a few minutes to make. I know we are all busy at Christmas but we would need them here by the end of December. Here is the information:
If they are not here by December 31st I won't be able to ship them so I will give them to a charity committee in one of my guilds.

Thanks for your consideration.

Brick and Mortar Closed Thursday the 11th

Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Because in California, when it rains it snows. I know all of you mid-westerners are going to have a big laugh at us but... our area does have the potential for flooding and there are going to be hurricane strength gusts in this area. I decided that rather than put my employees in danger it would be best that we all stay home tomorrow.

Let's have a great big sew in (doors) and post all the fun lovely things we are making... tag me @intrepidthread and maybe we can have a little drawing afterwards for something fun.

Helping a friend...

It's Christmas and that is what it is all about right? I bet you know my friend Tina. She is the president of the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild. She is a great friend and so generous with her time, love, and support. Her family has hit a rough patch and needs a little help over the hump... they are raffling off a custom quilt just for you. Tina won viewers choice award at Quiltcon last time. Seriously how much better could it be than to get a custom designed quilt and help out this wonderful family?
This is Tina's daughter, isn't she adorable?

If you are feeling the mood strike you you can buy a raffle ticket here.

I promised pretty pictures

So here is Follie

And I took a new picture of Ashton Road since the last print finally arrived:

Postal horror and giveaways...

Hey Everyone,

If you are looking at blogs today I am certain that you already know that it is Sew Mama Sew's big Giveaway day. We are sponsoring a giveaway on our friend Jessica's blog, QuiltyHabit so head on over and give the wheel of luck a spin.

I have decided that all Black Friday shipping should not happen until at least a week after Black Friday. The postal service is a complete mess that first week of December. Last year I shipped a package to Texas (normally a two day shipping) on December 4th and it showed up on April 15th of this year. Yes, you read that right. This year as of this morning I have seen completely squashed boxes in plastic bags:

And gotten two emails from people in France that say their packages (according to tracking) are in Canada. None of the other packages I shipped internationally say they have passed US customs yet so I am fairly certain this is a tracking mistake but still.... and I checked the addresses were right so it wasn't my error for certain.

I am sorry for being so quiet the last couple weeks but we have had our noses to the grindstone... Myra, I am so sorry for not having any dancing Cabana Boys for you in this post.

 Lotta Jansdotter's latest Follie is here. I promise pretty pictures later today.

Talk soon!
