We are continuing on with curbside pickup, as the risk is just too great right now. Unfortunately Georgia is quickly catching up to the states with the highest numbers and we are stunned by the set backs in our area. While we remain closed to in-store customers, we are adding back in a few extra hours on Tuesdays (our previous late evening) for curbside pick up. We will have someone in the shop to help on the phone and run things out to you from 11 am-5:30 pm today and then plan to be in the shop through Saturday from 11 am to 3pm as long as we are not surprised with new health scares. Keep an eye on our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram) for updates to our hours. We post each morning and you can see posts if you click the links even if you aren't signed up with these social media outlets.
Last week we received the fun Candy Please Panels designed by Sarah Watts for Ruby Start Society. The panel makes a count-down to Halloween wallhanging and Happy Halloween Bunting, perfect for decorating for Halloween in the Sarah Watts style.
We are so excited to have the Flower Market line from Anna Maria Horner's Conservatory collaboration and designed by Courtney Cerruti up on the website for Pre-order today and arriving in the shop also today or tomorrow. There is a fabulous Spectrum panel and twelve wonderful prints to go with it, from which we have created a fat quarter bundle for those who love to sew with fat quarters. You can see a few of the prints in the collage below. Aren't they fantastic?
We have gotten in a restock of the Moda Silky Soft Black, as well and some Moda Bella Solid Zen Grey and Off White. We also have the new Safety First Mask panel by Stacey Hsu in stock now! Grab yours up on the website and we can have it ready for you to pick up today. Other restocks arriving today area variety of straight pins, machine needles, a bunch of different threads and the Fat Quarter Quartet pattern/booklet that is a great pattern to use with any fat quarters you have stashed. You can mix and match fabrics to make fun quilts using this pattern.
We have been told that the new Ruby Star Society Facemask panel will be arriving in a few weeks, so we are putting it up on the site for pre-order, as well, in case you want to get orders in so as not to miss out.
We have 1 left of the latest shipment of the Creative Grids Face Mask Template in stock now, so grab one while you can.
It's fun to get a little pop of Christmas at the shop during the heat of summer and this year's Deer Christmas offerings from Urban Chiks do not disappoint. We still have a couple of the awesome Deer Christmas kits but once they're gone, they are gone! The finished quilt measures ~70" x 78" and the kit includes all the fabric you need for the top, including the digital Deer Panel, pattern, plus binding (pre-cut as 2.5" strips). Just add backing -- and this Polka Dot Deer print from the line (selling quickly) would be perfect! We also have some layer cakes and charm packs from the line in stock and a few pieces of last season's Sweet Christmas, which coordinate nicely with this year's line.
We know many of our yarn folks have heard about the Berroco 123Dropship program where you can order Berroco yarn from us that we don't have in stock and Berroco will ship it straight to you (usually very quickly). Berroco has been putting together some kits and we have added one to our website for order called the Zig Zag Jardin using the Millefiore yarn in a 50% Wool, 50% Acrylic blend. You can also order the Zig Zag Arcade kit made with one color of the Berroco Medina yarn, which is a 37% Cotton, 36% Acrylic, 27% Viscose blend perfect for summer knitting. If you have not seen all the yarns that you can purchase through us but have shipped straight from Berroco, check them out here. There are so many different fiber blends including their Modern Cotton, Modern Cotton DK, Liana, Cambria, Remix Light and Remix, (linen blends) that would be great for summer yarn work!
For information on making face masks, check out our Charity Projects page. Please also share our GoFundMe fundraiser with your friends and family who might like to help out with masks but cannot help with the sewing of them. Our fundraiser is helping to pay for the fabric that we are providing to anyone who asks (over $5000 given away so far) and to supplement the pay for the shop employees during this time of limited work hours.
We appreciate the support you've shown us during these uncertain times. Whether you are an essential worker during this crisis or doing your part to #stayhome, you are in our thoughts!
