Sale Aftermath and NEW items!

Whew!  We had a FLASH SALE (one day only sale) on Friday and the response was overwhelming.  To tell you how popular the sale was, I did more volume in 24 hours than I did in February!   I am a little behind on orders, but a third did go out yesterday and more will go out today.  Watch for a shipping notice from PayPal, that will alert you that you order went out. 

If you missed the sale, make sure you follow me on Facebook or Twitter.  If you do not "do" either one of those, I will be starting to collect email addresses for email updates.  The opt-in sign up list for email newsletters will be live by the end of the month.

In other news, we have new items up!
Another adorable line from The Henley Studios - Sew Lovely!
Prints from the Henley Studios from Makower UK tend to sell out quickly and are not reprinted.  Visit the shop - www.treasurebayfabrics.com and get yours soon!

Birthday Surprise Gifts For You!

Hooray! Today is my little girl's 6th Birthday and you are getting the gifts!

Starting today and while supplies last, with every purchase of $10.00 or more, you will receive a coupon for 10% off your next order* and a Fat Quarter cut of fabric**!

I have a lot of Fat Quarters, this is just a little peek!

What can you do with a Fat Quarter? All kinds of things! You can make little zip bags or wallets, a doll dress, a hair accessory, wall art or save a few make a mug rug, table runner or quilt! You can do what I like to do... Collect them! (precious, precious fabric!)

*coupon code is on the back of the business card enclosed with your order and is good in the etsy shop or the artfire shop until 12/31/2011.

**while supplies last. A fat quarter is a cut of fabric 18 inches by 22 inches. Fabric selection is my choice of print (they are all really nice!), unable to fulfill specific requests.

International Quilt Market Spring 2011 part 1

Hello everyone! I am still playing catch up but I thought I would take a break to go over some of the exciting and inspiring things I saw at Quilt Market.

My first appointment on the floor was at Timeless Treasures. I love the new designers that they are utilizing. I saw a trend of fun, whimsical yet modern prints including a new lone of affordable organic cotton prints!

The colors were saturated and bright and the fabric felt like the high quality you expect from Timeless Treasures. Very excited to get these fabrics.

Next up, Andover/Makower. I loved this line of sewing notions from Makower:

And these fresh, deep colors from the new "Dazzle" collection are amazing for a quilt or I personally will be making a new handbag.

Another big trend? Grey with everything and this line from Andover was quite lovely:

Another new line that I thought was intriguing and very Euro looking is this one, "Meet The Gang" by Creative Thursday. I love that color combo. I think it will make a fabulous quilt for kids!

Last but certainly not least, the newest from Lizzy House, "Outfoxed"

Pump Up The Jam (and another fun giveaway!)

Hello everyone!  I have been working a lot recently and one of the benefits of having a home office that I really appreciate is that I can crank the music whenever I need motivation to get through a big project or tons of orders.  The louder the better here!

Lately, I have been listening to The Pixies (just saw them in concert!), Adele (her new album is seriously AMAZING!) and the new Foo Fighters (OMG - rock!).  Music can get me pumped, mellow me out or help me think a little clearer.  Which got me to thinking, what do you like to listen to when you are sewing or crafting?  

Comment below and you will be entered into a giveaway for a $10.00 Apple iTunes gift card!  Leave a comment with your favorite sounds, music or artist and make sure you leave a way to contact you in case you win.  One entry per person per day, please.  Drawing will be held on the evening of May 1st - I will announce the winner here on the blog.  Good Luck!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - New!

I loved this book as a child and my daughter loves the story now, too.  I could not resist picking up this line for the shop - it's bright, colorful and takes me right back to the joy of discovering the art of Eric Carle.  Limited quantities - grab some for a quick project!  Great for a quilt, pillow or this would be a fun print for a summer skirt!
Enjoy!  www.treasurebayfabrics.com
