Year End Clearance

November 25, 2011

I thought I’d get an early start on the year end clearance sale. There are some  great deals on fabric to be found online at this time of year, so be sure to have a look around. The sale will run from now until January 2. I am also planning weekly features during the sale, starting this week with 20% off all black and white prints from Lecien and Michael Miller, and Polka Dot Garden by Jennifer Heynen for In The Beginning. That sale only runs for a week and will end December 1.

And why is so much fabric on sale? To make room for more, of course! Quilt Market took place in Houston at the end of October, and all the new fabric lines were introduced. I wasn’t there, but try to keep up through the online quilting community. Kim over at True Up always has a fantastic post-market series showcasing what she saw at market.

I thought it might be fun to give you a sneak peek of some of the fabrics that will be coming into the shop over the next few months. As a Canadian retailer, almost all my fabric has to be ordered through a distributor, as opposed to direct from the manufacturer. That means that I am usually 2-4 weeks behind some of the shops south of the border in getting new fabric lines on the shelf. But they do eventually make their way north.

Fly A Kite by October Afternoon for Riley Blake is being released in January. It will be available in cotton, flannel and laminate. I’ll be ordering cottons, and maybe a bolt of flannel for backing (I can’t resist a cozy flannel-backed quilt!) This collection, following a current trend in fabric design, started out as a scrapbooking line. The beautiful paper designs translate well to cloth. I’ll be using these in a quilt of course, but would also be great for sewing projects for little ones.

    Oh love the Fly a Kite line! So cute for a quilt and maybe some flannel pajamas. Will be looking forward to that one.
