Many discontinued books and patterns. Buy one get one. Much more as we continue to downsize or rightsize for the change in our business. Thank you Covid! Our business has morphed into quilting services and hefty online sales with a smattering of retail. Best selling fabric online is 20s/30s reproduction prints, Moda ombre confetti prints, Benartex Catitude, Dimples, and Northcott canvas. Yes Catitude is 2 years old but we still sell bolts and bolts of all the beautiful prints. If you don't see something on the floor, walk back to the prep area where we have all the internet bolts stashed for easy access.
Yes, we will always have a good assortment of fabric, blenders, and precuts because that's what we need to make all the custom quilts. So if you purchased fabric online and need a blender to mix with it, stop in and let us help you find the right piece. Finished quilt sales not so robust right now so we are selling many quilt tops instead of finishing them. Bargello Argyle pattern in neutral colors king size, Siesta Key surfsong in water colors king size, Lone star top, and many more. Need a quilt in a hurry? Pick out a finished top for about the price of fabric to make one, then quilt it yourself or have someone finish it for you. Crib quilts still sell briskly and online so that is what we concentrate on. Many new childrens kits in various stages of design and assembling.
New batik line Kaufman Prisma Dyes in house. Also fossil ferns, old prints but still beautiful and they blend beautifully with Kaffe Fassett prints.
I have been surprised at the amount of traffic and snowbirds in the area. Thought with Covid we would have an abbreviated and scanty season. Seems everyone appeared after that last cold and snowy wave up north! Pinecraft rentals are filled. Steady work is progressing on the legacy trail daily. The traffic lights at the Bahia Vista crossing were installed this week. Although the trail was to be finished for this winter season it is still a number of months away. It is being installed on the railroad bed that is just steps from our side door. Not sure yet what we have available to offer the trail riders other than a bathroom break and cold water refill from our fountain! Don't think they will be a quilt-buying group but one never knows!
Hope to see you on Friday or Saturday. Sale will be OUTSIDE on the sidewalk.
