We Dread Inventory: Part 2

Effective Tuesday we're marking most of our baby/children fabric down to 40% off! You know you'll need a baby quilt eventually, so add to your stash now and be ready when that day arrives. Select baby/kids kits are 30% off.

Also starting tomorrow all Christmas fabric is 30% off. Includes panels and pre-cuts.

In addition, our wonderfully moisturizing Lo-Lo Bars are 20% off. These make great gifts. 

We sold a lot - but not all - of the Crossroads Denim and Minkee that was advertised in last week's newsletter at $11 and $12 per yard respectively. It's on sale until it's gone.

Annual inventory is right around the corner.
Please help save us from all that counting!
