Sale, Sale, Sale!!!

This week has been crazy here at the shop. Between working on some new projects with the Christmas fabrics that have been arriving, organizing fabrics for our upcoming sale and teaching, I am exhausted.
The sale starts on Sunday, 2 September at 10:00 am. and will continue all week until the following Sunday.
Hope to see you there!

On Monday I made a few coasters or Mug Rugs with extra squares from a really adorable Christmas panel from the Anni Downes Christmas Time Collection from Henry Glass Fabrics. Not exactly rocket science but quick and enjoyable to make up, they would be a great gift at Christmas.
I am hoping to make a nice lap quilt for our sitting room with this panel.

The coordinating fabrics and yarn dyes are beautiful.

I have also been organizing all the fabrics that are going to be marked down for a super sale!  We have some beautiful fabrics that are going to be marked down for clearance starting on Sunday.  There are a few layer cakes and jelly rolls on offer as well, Christmas fabrics and other assorted treasures!  A comment I get from customers who read the blog and make a trip down to visit are always surprised at the how big our space is and the photos on our blog don't do it justice.

We have an ever growing selection of Kansas Troubles from Moda.  Probably our most popular group of fabrics.

We also managed to squeeze in a workshop this week, a Free Motion Quilting Workshop!  A great group of ladies from Wexford, Meath, and Louth. That photo is courtesy of my 12 year old daughter and is not the most complimentary photo of moi..... Our Free Motion class is proving to be a popular class and I'm pleased with the response to it.  I will be putting it on the schedule for this autumn so watch for it, hopefully it will be a great start to understanding the mysteries of Free Motion Quilting.

  4. Yesterday was great hope the rest of the sale goes well, if there is much left after the horde that descended yesterday morning :)

  5. Your shop looks awesome! I am sitting here kicking myself for having missed the opportunity to visit you and see it in person. Next time I am in Ireland it will be at the top of my Must See list. I spent half my time traipsing around visiting dolmens, and to think I could have been fabric shopping....
