Fabric OrdersSome of you have maybe heard rumors that Coats & Clark, owners of Free Spirit/Westminster Fabrics will be out of the fabric business as of May 1. I got the news through an email Monday that the rumors are true and that they are filling past orders but will no longer be printing/selling fabrics. I’m sure their wonderful designers (like Tula Pink and Kaffe Fassett, just to mention a few), will all find new fabric companies to print and sell their fabrics.

Meanwhile, I immediately started looking for another fabric wholesaler. Today I placed an initial order with Art Gallery Fabrics. They too have some fabulous designers, one being Angela Walters. I remember being at Spring Quilt Market five years ago in Pittsburgh when I was looking for a fabric line to carry at my studio. I was immediately drawn to the Art Gallery booth because of their modern colors and designs. This week in researching who carries Art Gallery Fabrics, I found it was not very available in Rochester. So I am very excited to announce that I will be carrying Art Gallery Fabrics in my studio. I just placed my initial order today and expect to have lots of new fabrics coming within the next few weeks.

But what Does this mean? It means I need more room, so….that means a SALE! All of the Westminster Fabrics in the studio will be ON SALE for just $5.99/yard starting tomorrow and ending Thursday, February 22 when they will return to the regular price of $8/yard. Now’s the chance to stock up on some of you favorite designers like Tula Pink, Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably, Erin McMorris, Denyse Schmitt, Nel Whitmore and more for just $5.99/yard. But this is not a permanent markdown, as these fabrics will become less available soon and in higher demand. So after February 22, they will return to the regular price of $8/yard. Don’t miss this chance to get your favorite fabrics before they are gone and at a sale price!

I will be keeping special hours starting tomorrow through the end of the sale:
Saturday, February 17, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Monday, February 19, 1 – 6 p.m.
Tuesday, February 20, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Wednesday, February 21, 1 – 6 p.m.
Thursday, February 22, 1 – 6 p.m.

Stop in, buy some great fabrics at a remarkably low price and see my newly expanded studio and “quilt shop.” Call me at 831-2566, if you need a ride up in the elevator at door #2. I’m on the third floor.
