Weekly fabric update

Dragon craft pack from Seamstar

Dragon craft pack from Seamstar

There’s lots of good stuff going on at Seamstar…  Courtney has put together some lovely new craft packs for your delectation. The packs contain fabric, trims and thread & they look excellent value. They also take some of the pain out of one of those great trials of online shopping – finding stuff that works well together.

The offers section is also very definitely worth a browse – currently there’s 20% off all Anna Maria Horner for instance. AND, there’s a new scheme to provide savings for regular customers and for people who buy in bulk – you can read more here.

There’s a big sale on at The Quilt Room – until midnight tonight there’s 10% off absolutely everything, and 20% off selected books. You need to hurry round there now for this one! It’s a great place for sewing & patchwork basics so it might be a good time to stock up things like pins, rotary cutters, needles… it’s not often you get them in a sale..

Have you checked out the new Abakahn website? It’s fantastic – so easy to browse, with lots of good clear photos of the products – it’s such a huge improvement on their previous website – huge congratulations to all involved. It’s now so much easier to get a really good idea of the sort of stuff that Abakahn have in stock – lots of really good value basics for patchwork, lots of great craft fabrics like felt and polar fleece, and great fabrics for upholstery too.

I’m guessing that a lot of shop owners are gearing up for the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in a couple of weeks time. I am feeling really lucky because I won a ticket in the Sewing Directory giveaway.. (thank you to them!). I’m hoping to restrain my spending, although it’s going to be really hard work… One thing that will help is the 10% off voucher that Mandy at Simply Solids has for potential FoQ  customers.
