What's New - Quilting Fabrics


Social Media

Hope it's ok but, I wanted to do a different Show and Tell :)

We have recently gotten in so many adorable items that I wanted to do a show and tell!

These are all SO gorgeous and on SALE!!

Plus, no coupons needed here - I call it the Screw the Coupon Sale!!
*gigglin*

Turn your head and say la la la la if you can't look :)

1. My FAVE fabric is BACK! I love everything about Pure!!



But really, how could you not - turquoise and blue heaven!!

2. We have these little gnome wee folks - with bolts arriving soon. SO CUTE!!




3. We have more Frolic. How can you NOT love Frolic? The fat quarter bundle even comes with an adorable bundle. SUPER cute!!



4. Into something more traditional? Lookie at Luna Notte! Pretttttyyyyyyy




5. I am in love with Kate Spain. I admit it. Her designs are always spot on and beautiful. Fandango was no exception to this rule and we wanted more of it!






I could do a special blog post on our new batik bundles that are so pretty but, instead I will leave you with a question....

What is your all time favorite fabric? Do you have a pic you can show us?

Ack...is that the UPS man with more fabric? Watch your emails!!

Help :) I need your opinion!

So I need your opinion on something.

There is a HUGE company called BuySafe that offers protection for you - the customer. I am sure you have heard of them before because they are on a number of the big retailers websites. They basically give insurance to you the customer except - we are going to pay for your insurance :)

Let me explain...

If we purchase this service, you will be guaranteed the following:
  • $500 Purchase Guarantee – a third party guarantee of the terms of sale
  • $10,000 ID Theft Protection – comprehensive identity theft coverage
  • $100 Lowest Price Guarantee – if the store price drops within 30 days of a purchase
Let's discuss each one a little more.

$500 Purchase Guarantee - Get what you paid for, or your money back. All the terms of sale for your purchase are guaranteed, including product authenticity, up to $500.

So if we don't take care of you, BuySafe will. Now, based on our track record.. you know we will totally hook you up but, this is just a back up insurance :))

Identity Theft Protection. - Comprehensive ID theft coverage for 30 days. Your identity is protected and you have access to free professional ID theft remediation services for the next 30 days. Coverage applies for all online and offline identity theft, wherever it occurs.

We pay more than the average hosting fees for our website because we use Yahoo. Yahoo is VERY secure and we want to protect your information. Again, this is a back up plan for you... our customer.

Lowest Price Guarantee for 30 days. If the price at this store drops within 30 days of your purchase, we'll pay you the difference, up to $100 per transaction and up to a maximum of $200 per claimant in any twelve-month period.

This is the part I personally LOVE the best. I hate it when I buy something and 2 weeks later it goes on sale.

OR

I wait for it to go on sale and by the time it does, what I was waiting for is gone.

This would protect our customers of having that same problem.

Here is where I need your help.

Before I go and purchase this "insurance," is this something that you would want to see on our website?

Again, you would NOT have to pay for anything extra. I just would really love your opinion :))

Thank you everyone!

OH!! We got in 5 more boxes from Moda today so watch your email for a new newsletter coming soon :))

Let's See Who Won Our Giveaway!

I am SO excited!! Only 6 more days until we start the very first online quilting book club!

With Just a Touch of Fabric You Can Create.....

People amaze me with what they can do with just a touch of fabric.

For instance, you know I love to send little goodies in our orders right?

Well, one of our customers was buying up some Sunkissed and I had some that was a little odd shaped. My wonderful husband was cutting fat quarters and in the middle of it, forgot what size he was cutting :)

No big deal! Now we have some Sunkissed Goodies to send *laughing*

So I send some miscut beautiful pink fabric to our wonderful customer Sharon and look at what she created!!



Isn't this the cutest Ipad Case?




 So cute!!

Let me show you something else SUPER cute! Nancy, the lady that helps me in the afternoons, took a few scraps home, and look at what she created!!





 Notice how each egg is unique with ribbons, paint, beads, and fabric?

What have you been creating with just a touch of fabric?

Post a link to your picture so we can share with others too :)

New Goodies, New Member of the Family, and Did You Get in Our Two Giveaways?

I wanted to introduce you to the latest member of our family....Gonzo.



Gonzo is 4 months old and is a beautiful Pit Bull puppy.




Who also got a little tired of doing all the paperwork involved to adopt him.

 

By the end, he was grabbing the pen and helping his Daddy sign the paperwork. He came to live with 2 Golden Retrievers, another Pit Bull, and 2 horses on our ranch. 

He has been wonderful except one thing. 

He snores. Loud.

So anyway....

The last 2 days I have been dying!! I ran out of needles. I love my quilting needles!!

Why?

Because I think every quilter needs more quilting needles and I put them in EVERY order that comes in.

So yes, it has been KILLING me to be out the last two days!

But today the nice mailman came with needles and more goodies for me to put in our orders.



I love giving goodies to customers :)) All feels right in the world again.

Ok so here are a few big things to make sure you know of:
  1. We have a great giveaway going on for our new online quilting book club.
  2. We have a second giveaway going on over at the new online quilting book club blog.
  3. We have been creating some beautiful kits for the new book club.
  4. We have been adding new items to the 30% off special page on a daily basis. If you want some great deals on great fabric - check it out!

Quilting Through the Pain

I have had the pleasure of getting to know more about you, learn your stories, and learn who you are.

I have also learned about your pain.

I have learned that you have Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and like me... Ankylosis Spondylitis.

I have learned that sometimes the pain is not physical but, emotional.

Yet, here we are... quilting through the pain.

For me, quilting helps take the pain away. Quilting takes my mind to another place where pain is a distant memory. Only when I take a break do I realize, WOW I hurt.

I have seen a lot of posts recently about quilts being "good enough" or being too easy. I hope you will remember from this day forward...

Your quilt is perfect in every single way. Every quilt you make is a true masterpiece. Your quilt is a work of art. You sat through the pain to create something from your heart. Whether it took you 2 hours or 2 years... it was still made by YOU. It was made with love and it is PERFECT. It is a true treasure that everyone around you will love and adore because YOU took the time to make it.


The only quilt police out there is you. So go easy on yourself and be proud of everything you create.

One more thing to remember, you are not quilting through the pain by yourself. We are all in this together!

So Who Is The Winner of 7 GORGEOUS Yards of Anthology?

Turns out, everyone is loving Anthology!



The colors are GORGEOUS!! The prints! So much fun right?
So who were our lucky winners? Did I say winners? Hmmm



So who was 161?


Congrats Hannah!!
Hang on.


Wouldn't it totally suck if you were 160 and 163?
If it were me, I would be like, "Oh my gosh! I was so freaking close! Grrrrrrr."

I felt like we had to do SOMETHING! I mean you guys gave me 347 beautiful, funny, amazing comments that made my week! I can't even begin to thank you all for that!

So let's do this...
See this?



Super cute compact mirror and sewing kit. These are just one of the many different types goodies I was showing you that I like to give our customers when they order.

They are SO cute and I think # 160 and #162 should have one of these emailed to them in their FAVE color!

Because really, it does stink to be OH so close!
Congrats to Alicia and WandaFish!!




Winners - Please email me your addy so we can get your presents out.

Everyone else - I have a question for you - Would you be open to completing a short survey if I did a drawing for some gift certificates to our store?

You see... I want this to be YOUR store and I need help doing that. So I really want your input and I would love to ask you a couple of questions via a survey.

If you hate the idea, tell me that too. I am open for discussion!!
