This is my favorite pair ... an unlikely pair ... the one of the left is priced $3.00/yard, and the one on the right (or the other left) is by Benartex, with a metallic design that sells for $11/yard. But look at those colors together - wow! Only in a warehouse can you find a match like that!
And then, there are the flannels. Some I've purchased from the fabric company representatives who visit the shop ... some are from the warehouse (same fabric companies, usually last year's stock or discontinued lines downstairs) and their prices are the only difference! Our collection of juvenile fabrics range from $4 to $11 / yard; only the price tags tell the tale - they all feel wonderful to me, and are both beautiful and adorable. The only hint you'll get from me is that the longer I've had them, the slimmer the bolts, so they may have been warehouse purchases last year, or half-bolts sold there this year!
|My wedding colors in 1970 - |
these flannels are this year's product, but priced at 5.50/yard,
and have a print of small tone on tone stars.

angel snow figures and peaceful wishes

|What little girl wouldn't love these pink and purple |
birds and butterflies on her bathrobe or jammies?
It's a wonderful, thick flannel!
|I just love these penguins and fox, snowmen and birds.|
|This is a comfy flannel of snowflakes |
on a gentle blue background.
|And a "toss" design of those fox and penguins, |
with a polar bear!
|Some of our earlier flannels, at a very low price.|
Get them while you can ... not much left on these bolts!And they won't last long at $3/yard.
They make wonderful pillow cases, too,
and we sell the kits with a pattern for $10.
|Believe - each of these bolts holds fabrics |
that sell for $3 to $4 / yard!
The first fabric I'd bought from a visiting salesman when our shop was new in the fall of 2013 was a rainbow of Henry Glass cotton bolts ... and as I've begun to run out of them, I've found a salesperson today who can help me restock ... at close to the 2014 cost!
|The 2014 price was $10/yard, and though many|
top quality fabrics like this are now pricing at $12/yard,
I'm going to stay with the original price - because I can!
The center of my business plan reads HAPPY!
|Do you see white trees on black, |
or black trees on white?
|Beautiful floral border fabric for table runners|
made with a 60 degree ruler - which we have in stock.
|A typical glittered snowflake on white, next to an all cotton|
Menorah print - the prices will surprise you!
|I've never seen such delicate silver snowflakes as on this white bolt;|
I've paired it with a new Hanukah/Star of David fabric.
Most of you know I try to stock sought-after juvenile fabric (not necessarily Disney or other movie brand fabrics ... just fabrics that delight kids and those who love sewing for them.) This line of jungle animals and their names is priced at $7.50/yard. I have only one bolt of each, so don't miss out~
|The border is a favorite fabric ... sold a few yards|
of that one already!
|Text fabric seems to be in vogue this year ...|
I'm all for helping kids recognize names.
After all, if people didn't find what they're looking for at prices they can afford, they wouldn't visit our shop ... and then they wouldn't see the envelope that sits quietly on the table inviting donations that benefit our town's school children at lunch time ... and that make the givers happy, and the children happy ... it's all part of our Feel Good Shopping program at Quilters' Quarters. And by the way, the schools are receiving more than one hundred dollars again this month due to the generosity of quilters and the loyalty that keeps bringing them back for more Happy Quilting!
Many thanks, all!
