Quilt Zone Closing Mystery

It’s starting to look empty in the Quilt Zone. Kinda spooky, maybe mysterious – like where did all this stuff go? Maybe it’s time for a Quilt Zone Mystery.

I’ve wanted to do another mystery for a long time – but just didn’t have time to design one. I have one ready to go now, just in time to say goodbye.

Quilt Zone Inventory Reduction Update

Did you know that in the fabric world PFD means “prepared for dyeing? The first time I saw fabric listed as PFD I had this mental image of $$$ floating on a background.

We have emptied many, many bolts and the Quilt Zone inventory is shrinking, but we still have a lot of really good fabric left.

This is the time for you to stock up on quilt backs and “I love it, but don’t know what to do with it” fabrics.

The Quilt Zone is Closing - November 2018

But age is beginning to catch up with me (and my staff) and family needs and travel wants mean I just can’t make a long term commitment to the business. It was a difficult decision, I feel a great sense of loss, but it is time.

Quilt Sale Class Sale Fall 2018

Summer must be coming to an end. The quilt stores are having their class sales and there are too many ripe raspberries to pick. Raspberries are a wonderful example of nature’s power. You clean them out and cut them down in the spring. Ignore them for 4 months – don’t weed, don’t fertilize, don’t wonder if they are getting enough water. And before you know it there is a dense prickly thicket taller than your head loaded with gallons of delicious berries for you to turn into scones or jam or ice cream topping. It’s like magic.
