I don't often write on my 'blog', as I usually send everyone an email with all my announcements, but there is a lot of stuff I want to share with you and I thought this site would be more suitable this time..
Please read on to find out about my summer hours, new fabrics and items for sale, new buy and sell items and more...
As in the past couple of years, I will be reducing my summer appointment hours. It is best to contact me a few days in advance to set up a time.
|Northcott Simply Neutral Wide Backing|
Awhile ago I sold off all my wide backing fabric due to the lack of room to store a wide enough variety of colours. However, I have purchased one wide back from Northcott at a good price in a neutral off-white colour.
This wide backing is available at the very reasonable price of $14.95/yd, and there is a limited quantity. Please contact me if you would like to have some set aside for you.
It is a very light, almost white colour. It might look a little darker and yellowish in the picture but that is misleading. You can see a closer look at it here. It has faint circles & lines.

New arrivals include another shipment of Tonga batiks from a number of different collections including 10 fabrics from the 'Cashmere' collection which are basically off-white or cream fabrics great for backgrounds, as well as 10 fabrics from the 'Vivid' collection which is a collection of bright colours.
Also new are quite a number of Northcott fabrics from various collections including some from their Banyan Batiks collections and quite a number from their Artisan Spirit Shimmer collection. I actually have quite a few fabrics from the Shimmer collection which you can see here... "Shimmer Fabrics"..

Yay! I finally found a source for 'faux metal' nylon coil zippers. These zippers can be cut and sewn into your project just like any other nylon coil zipper.
I have the zipper chain in black with silver, black with gold, and black with antique brass and I will cut the zipper to any size you need and can attach one or two (head to head) pulls. The cost will be 10 cents per inch and $1.50 per pull.
This is a #5 size zipper - perfect for bag-making. And very stylish!
Mesh Fabric By Annie and Fold Over Elastic (colours to match the mesh) is now available. An 18" x 54" package of the mesh is $7.50 and a 2 yard roll of elastic is $6.50. There are lots of colours to choose from.
Use this fabric in many applications such as the Double Zip Gear Bag. This pattern will also be available soon (on backorder).
Wool Pressing Mats
I still have a number of the 17" x 24" Wool Pressing Mats at the sale price of $85. This is a very good price as it is about the equivalent of the U.S. list price. Please contact me if interested in picking one up before they are gone! Once they are gone, I will have to reorder and the price will go up by $5.
