New Fabrics!

Calling all Tula Troops: HomeMade is in the house! The latest from Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics features all things sewing related with Tula's signature touch of whimsy. Yardage, fat quarter packs, 10" squares, 5" squares, hexagons and 2.5" strips!

Dream from Windham Fabrics - This Milestone Mat makes a perfect baby gift! Put the animal print on the back, have it quilted, and bind it with dots. Done! The new parents can take a photo every month as Baby grows.

Watercolor Sketchbook from Studio E Fabrics -  Created by well-known water-color artist Grace Popp, this new lineshows an artist’s view of natural elements. Painted in her delicate style, the collection has a 36-inch panel of a misty woodland scene, all-over patterns of flowers, birds, tossed flowers and an on-trend marble and stone design with accents of faux metallic gold to give the collection a pop of color. Colored in soft charcoals, grays and black with accents of faux gold, this palette works well with a modern farmhouse décor as well as with contemporary chic furnishings or a modern nursery. Quilt show is a free pattern available on the Studio E website.

Avignon from Blank Quilting - Beautiful sun baked colors define these stylized poppies. Large and medium print flowers will add dimension to any project along with the coordinates that include  paisley, mini geometric, biased stripe, and scroll.

Our new hours started March 9 with Daylight Savings Time, at the end of which we'll review the response and decide if we'll keep those hours through the winter as well.

New hours:
Monday - Wednesday 10:00-5:00
Thursday 10:00-7:00
Saturday 10:00-5:00
