Saying Good-Bye to Another Quilt Shop

Sadly it seems there are many quilt shops closing on line and it breaks my heart. As many of you know I have pushed to help you build your stash for 2011 letting you know about my favorite shops and several of those have been extremely generous to you my readers and donated fabric for giveaways and yet, very few of you have visited those shops and purchased directly from them.

I understand we all have financial needs and can't possibly keep all the shops on line open, but when shops close we must all ask if we did enough to help them or do we buy our fabric at WalMart, Ebay, Goodwill, etc.?
Don't get me wrong, I am just as guilty and giving away so much of my stash last year didn't help them out either.

Some of the shops are closing for personal reasons. So, with great sadness on closings, I still want you to know there is time to start stash building because these shops are offering wonderful fabrics at discount rates.

1- This N That Fabrics are staying open until the last fat quarter is gone. They were going to close December 31 but have chosen to remain open until everything is liquidated. I have purchased 2 orders from them but be aware that they are selling out fast so what you order may not be available. If you allow them some leverage in your order, you will not be disappointed!

2- Rona Ross is an amazing Christian woman and she has been working on her Masters in Divinity (not the fudge sillies) and is turning the corner where she will be concentrating on her ministry. She has an amazing online quilt shop Grace Full Creations and is offering 30 to 85% off fabrics, notions and patterns. Visit her shop today before the doors close forever!

As always, if your stash is all stocked up and you want to help a charitable quilting ministry, you can contact me and always purchase some fabric for my stash as 2011 almost depleted my entire stash!

You can always check out the Quilting shop page here at Quiltingranny for more shops and deals and always support your local shop when you can!
