Summer's End Approaches

For years I taught science in elementary classrooms, and the four seasons were one of the early units. We would talk about weather and daylight, and in the upper elementary grades the dates and scientific reasons for the solstices and the equinoxes. The seasons changed around the 20th - 21st of March, June, September and December ...

But then the meteorologist made an arbitrary decision that it would be easier to use the first day of those months as the change of season. They call the true change dates "Astronomical"seasons, and their new chosen dates "Meteorological" seasons, telling viewers that June is summer because it's June ... December is winter because it's December, and the variance in our New England weather has no relevance to their altered calendars. Bah, humbug!

So, in my world, Autumn does not begin until September 21st. But the meterologists would have you believe that summer ends with the turn of the calendar page, which will happen in less than two weeks.
New: direct link to our webstore for this product:

To that end, I will start my End of Summer fabric sale with a 50% discount on all nautical fabrics bought last year and marked with 2015 prices ... what had been ten dollars will now be sold at five dollars per yard. I do have three bolts of new 2016 nautical fabric bought this year with this year's prices ($11.00 per yard) and they will not be marked down (yet.)

So come visit the shop, and see what else is on sale at Quilters' Quarters (hint: Halloween Fabrics are also marked at $5.00 per yard, as they are also part of the 2015 stock and were purchased at last year's cost.

And the same goes for the back to school fabrics, which are beautiful 100% quilt quality cotton!

Remember, too: when I get a sale, I pass that discount on to our customers. Quilters' Quarters is our happily ever after, and happiness shared is happiness to the max!
