Full Bloom is a fabric collection from Island Batiks and a pattern by Fourth and Sixth Designs.  Due to its popularity, the program  is being released again.  The first release was not available in Canada. This time, although their new Canadian distributors declined to bring in the program, I managed to get permission to deal directly with Island Batiks.
We are kitting the program a little differently than the 9 or 12 month program used in the first release . There will be 6 installments plus the initial purchase of the pattern . And we are cutting “Canadian” – your FQs are a bit bigger and will give you a bit more wiggle room. I am doing this quilt using a shop kit which has US yardage and a few FQs are a bit tight (the pattern even warns you of this)  We are including large spools of Aurifil 40wt cotton mako thread for the machine applique.  If you choose to buy a Full Bloom 40 wt boxed thread kit upfront, then your packages will contain matching Aurifil 50wt spools.  Spools of Aurifil are now $13.95 , so a storage box plus 12 spools of thread for $130.00 is a good deal. The first 5 people who sign up and purchase the boxed thread will get $10 off .  That’s $10 per spool plus a free storage box.
We are offering special pricing  to those who sign up for the full program .  The pattern is $44.95 –$34.95 for those who are full program participants.  The kits have a regular retail value between $86.50 and $92.00.  Participants will pay $75 per installment.  You will be required to purchase the pattern and pack 1 when you sign up,  and must leave your credit card# and signed authorization.  Subsequent packages will be charged at 2 month intervals.  You may of course collect packs 2, 3,4,5 and 6 as they become available which will be a lot sooner than the 2 month intervals.  Participants will also receive special pricing on Totally Stable by Sulky – an iron on tear off stabilizer, and on Roxanne’s glue while quantities last.
Participants will receive a $25 gift card when you bring in (or email a photo from out of town) your quilt top minus the small flowers around the edge – this is only good until the end of March 2017

Lots of new wildlife panels and yardage from Robert Kaufman - each panel has 6 or 8 different scenes.  Choose from North American  or African animals or sea life.  

We don't carry much in the way of retro/30's prints but on occasion I can get some precuts. Since most of you who are fans of this style make scrappy quilts, you can get some variety all at once.  PINAFORES AND PETTICOATS  by Kaye England for Wilmington Prints. Very limited quantities
This new collection by Basic Grey for Moda is very similar to their hugely popular Little Black Dress 1 and 2.  So if you missed out on those precuts, here is your chance to get Black Tie Affair.  We have limited quantities of fat quarter packs, fat 1/8ths, layer cakes and jelly rolls.  And we got 8 bolts of the yardage.  I can only hold phone orders until April 15th

For the first time, we will have the store open during the show.  (Friday and Saturday only, 11-4 each day).  The shop is just minutes down the road from show location.  If you are coming to the show with a bus trip, please let your organizers know that they can park the bus across the street at the Petro Canada while you shop in the store.  There will be coupons at each location that will make visiting both the store and the show on Friday and Saturday worthwhile.

We have the 2nd raffle prize quilt on display - a gorgeous batik version of Judy Niemeyer's Bali Fever, pieced by a number of VQG members (including staff members Anne and Joanne).  And we have tickets available.
