New Year, New Arrivals
Well, we can definitely tell the new year is here - UPS is dropping a lot of boxes at our door! We are trying hard to get everything out on the floor as fast as we can. We've gotten in 60" wide white terrycloth, the first of a few of the newest craze of double gauze, Old Cambridge pre-cuts and a few coordinating bolts and new batiks on bolts and in strips. Due to hit the floor next week is the new Strawberry Fields from Moda and Lori Holt's Calico Days from Riley Blake.
We've also gotten in a few new patterns and notions. Our favorite new notion is the Zirkel! It is an extremely strong magnetic pincushion that repels and separates metal items to the edge in a fanned out pattern placing them in a ready to pick up position. Heavy enough to be used as a paper weight. Stop by and check it out!
You will also notice an empty table in the shop. This table is free for you to use to brainstorm and build your projects and free up the cutting table for...well, cutting! We will also use it for demo days as we want to introduce you to fun new rulers and notions we find throughout the year.
January End of Bolt Program
In the past we have done a Super Bolt Sunday weekend. This year, we decided for the remainder of January (through Sunday, January 31st) if you finish ANY bolt of fabric, you will receive 25% off. That extends to our current bitty bolts that are regularly 20% off as well. Sale fabrics are still 30% off (unless otherwise marked). Let's clear some bolts!
2016 Rewards Card Program
So a few of you have asked about our new Rewards Card Program for 2016. This year, you will receive a punch card for fabric yardage purchased. It applies to all regularly priced fabric and there are a variety of numbers for you to punch out. Once the card is full, you will receive $20 towards your next fabric purchase. If you have already purchased yardage (Fat Quarters and sale fabrics are not included) this year, bring back your receipt and we will be happy to punch your card. The cards are due to arrive this week so we will be handing them out at the register as soon as they arrive when you make a fabric purchase.

Shop Hop is almost here! Next week is the last chance to get your passports for $5. As of the start of the hop on Monday, January 18 they will be $6. Shop hours will be 9am-5pm for the hop from that Monday through Saturday, January 23rd. You receive a free block (pattern AND fabric) at each participating shop.
