Fabric specials will be in store only on Saturday, August 24th from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. And don't forget to bring your RQ 10th Anniversary Tote Bag for an additional savings! On to the news...
RQ BOM News Round-Up
*We've acquired additional fabrics so that we can offer more Merry Merry Snow Days BOM and Full Kits! Join the Block of the Month anytime while supplies last and you'll receive all the fabrics as called for by Bunny Hill Designs.
*Tapestry BOM members, there was an error in how much Fabric 9 you received in your Month 6 package. Marica apologizes for the error and you will receive additional Fabric 9 in your Month 7 package. (Editor's Note: It was my fault. I go to the eye doctor Friday!)
*The My Redwork Garden BOM by Bunny Hill Designs will not be starting until October. The fabrics and patterns will not arrive in time for a September start. Full kits will still be shipped as soon as supplies are in stock.
*September BOM Challenge Update: Marcia has spoken with the Activity Director at Milner's Community Health Care here in Rossville and they are very excited to receive panel hangings for their residents' doors! Just a few reminders: make them approximately the width of your doors at home and put a sleeve or hanging tabs on the back.
What's New at RQ
A fresh, new color take on the popular Jubilee collection by Amanda Murphy for Contempo: Jubilee Silver (and Plum!) The same beautiful paisleys, florals, leaves, and herringbone stripes in the new colors are now in stock at RQ. As before, many prints are enhanced with pearlescence for that extra shimmer. In addition to the yardage, we have 10" square and 2 1/2" wide strips packs available. Three kits using Jubilee Silver including: Linked (featured above) are now in stock!
Rebecca Jones and Clothworks have brought us this sweet collection: Dreaming of Snow. The pillow panel (seen above) is the main focus with support from small woodland animal coordinates. Check out the table topper using Dreaming of Snow pieces and the Air Traffic Control pattern.
How about adding a little country charm to your next project? The roosters and chickens of Early Bird by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics is the collection for you. This group includes some of the most frequently requested prints such as: chicken wire, newsprint, and barn siding. The pieces are used together in the Im-peck-able Kit (featured above).
