Greetings from your friends at Sew Fabulous

Hello From Sew Fabulous,

In this class you will learn basic quilting terminology, tools and techniques. The cost, $50, covers all three days (I'm sorry, no partial refunds.) Space is limited so sign up soon.

FUN PROJECT #1: Do you like to make small bags? Take a look at this fun Zipper Pouches project from

Speaking of making bags, I have a really fun one for our Old Bag Ladies and Gents Club on April 1 (click this link to sign up for the class). It's the Folding Wallet bag from ByAnnie. This pattern has been around a while; in fact, it's one of Annie's first patterns. There are 2 samples in the store for you to check out - one uses Soft and Stable and one uses interfacing and no quilting so it doesn't require as much pre-work. Wouldn't you like to make this beautiful little wallet out of your favorite fabrics from Sew Fabulous? Don't forget, until March 25 our fabrics are 15% off (minimum 1 yard cut from the bolt). 

 Pre-printed labels

We have this beautiful quilt hanging in the store - didn't Barb do a great job quilting it? We still have one kit available.

We have one more full kit of the Rainbow Sampler.
