End of Bolt Sale

March 21, 2013

We were strolling down the fabric shelves the past few days and discovered there are lots of bolts with 5 or less yards remaining. The cardboard takes up more space than the fabrics! Lots of new fabrics will start arriving soon; we need to make room! It is time for an end of bolt sale!

This sale will start Saturday, March 23 at 10am and continue thru Saturday March 30! To make your shopping quick, convenient and easy, we have taken these fabrics off the boards, measured and discounted them by at least 40%!

Choose from flannels, cottons and batiks in a very wide range of colors and prints perfect for any sewing or quilting project. Many pieces are large enough for backings, borders, bindings and even main colors for piecing. Have you seen pieced backs? They are great, too! Check your gift list for upcoming holidays and celebrations. With this wide selection, you are sure to find just what you need!

This is a once a year sale – don’t miss out! See you soon!

Not Your Ordinary Jelly Roll Quilt

March 8, 2013

Worldwide Quilting Day is coming soon, March 16 in fact.  We are going to see how many inches we can sew in a day and the easiest way to do this is by making Jelly Roll strip quilts sometimes also referred to as the 1600 inch Jelly Roll Race.  Since I will be busy with lunch and things on the 16th I decided to put my quilt together early.  Once I got the strips pieced and put together I thought it needed a little something.  Something to make it more unique, more me!  I have added a border and big appliquéd flowers that will have jumbo yellow yo yo’s for centers.  Think of the possibilities!  The strip pieced top only takes about 2 hours and then you can embellish at home as you see fit.  If you would like more details or to join us for our event call (906)492-3803.  Details can also be found on our web site at http://www.villagefabricsandcrafts.com.  Please register by 5pm on March 9.Image
