Happy New Year! We are 3 days into the new year and Cathy is already in high gear! She is ordering new fabrics, creating new classes, and making plans for more quality time with her grand baby. We have had incredible interest in our Monkey in the Middle Quilt.
Notice it is a wonderful quilt for a child - We can pretty much guarantee Cathy will be creating more of these.

In an effort to get ready for all the new fabrics coming in, Cathy is "Clearing out the Clearance". That means all of our clearance fabric that is ALREADY 40% off is an ADDITIONAL 10% off! Sue has stocked the shelves and there is limited quantities, so hurry in. Sale goes for all of January or for as long as quantities last.
