2014 is our 12th anniversary
To celebrate we have been running "12" specials. The most popular is the 12 cent bin.
Who knows what you will find here? Discontinued patterns, spools of thread, bits and pieces of tail end fabrics, notions we no longer plan to carry....
As we walk around the store and find one or two of something left, we drop it into the 12 cent bin.

In Store Special $5/yard. Still time to make a trick or treat bag, placemats, costumes, banners, decorations. Make fabric pumpkins from the homespuns and wovens in fall colors and plaids.
