To celebrate the arrival of Fall, the week of 9/28 - 10/3 all Fall and Halloween panels and kits will be 30% off.
Join us in a bra decorating challenge for Breast Cancer Awareness in October. Purchase a fat eight of fabric from the shop and use the fabric somewhere on your bra design. Add feathers, sequins, paint them, sew them, or bling them, but remember to bring them. Bra's will be displayed in our front window and each will have a number on them and the public will vote. Bra's must be submitted by 9/30. There will be a winner from three categories: Most Outrageous, Creative and People's Choice.
Riley Blake sent a few more ginghams, one in a pretty lime green.
Several bolts of RJR Cotton Supreme arrived in luscious colors of cantaloupe, riviera, bordeaux, hot pink and driftwood.
Red Rooster shipped Forest Frolic collection. It has the sweetest panel with foxes, owls, deer, hedgehogs and chickadees.
