RQ Turns 10: February is "Flannel and Folderol" Month
February is "Flannel and Folderol" month at RQ to continue our 10th Anniversary Celebration! This month all flannels (including Dapper wovens and Corner of 5th and Fun brushed cottons) are 10% off both in store and online. Flannels make great rag quilts, pajama pants, or quilt backings for just a few crafty ideas with flannel. At RQ folderol refers to novelty print fabrics that will be 10% off this month. Heaven Sent (featured above) is one folderol novelty collection available for 10% off this month. Online shoppers head to the Folderol Novelty Sale Category on the RQ homepage to see what is on sale. Brick and mortar store shoppers: we'll show you where in the store you can find the novelty prints on sale. (Sale pieces may vary.)
Grab your RQ Anniversary Canvas Tote Bag and come in on Tuesday, February 20th for 10% off most everything (some exclusions apply) you can fit in your canvas tote. If you don't have the RQ Anniversary Canvas Tote Bag yet, we still have them available for purchase!
Girls Night Out Mill House Retreat: ONLY TWO SPACES REMAINING!! We've rescheduled the Girls Night Out Retreat with Terri Degenkolb for February 23rd, 24th, and 25th. This will be a weekend for sewing with friends and working on projects of your choosing. Check your calendars again to see if the new date works for you and sign-up to reserve your space now!
What's New at RQ
Ombre Confetti Metallic by V and Co for Moda Fabrics is now available at RQ. These gorgeous ombre prints have dark, medium, and light sections across the width of the fabric sprinkled with gold metallic polka dots. Not only are these prints amazing on their own, V and Co has several coordinating patterns that use the Ombre Confetti prints to their full potential. Ombre Weave (featured above) is my personal favorite! We've listed kits for four V & Co patterns using the Ombre Confettis and we also have jelly rolls while supplies last.
Birdhouses and bird nests in the rain are the focus prints for this new collection from Windham Fabrics. Smitten with Spring by Whistler Studios brings spring to you on fabric. Grays, teals, and yellows capture all the colors of spring. The prints are used together in the Dappled Quilt Kit available on the RQ website. Think spring and it will be here sooner than you can imagine!
Not Your Garden Variety by Cindy Sepp for Quilting Treasures isn't a new collection; however, it can now be viewed in the shop at RQ. Bright floral doodles, leaves, and swirls give a fresh take on modern flowers. The prints are used together to create the Not Your Garden Variety Kit (featured above).

Did You Know?
This week the quilting industry has received the unexpected news that FreeSpirit Fabrics is being closed by their parent company Coats & Clark. While this news is unfortunate, we wanted to assure those with preorders for FreeSpirit Fabrics that we have been promised we will still receive the fabrics we have on order (i.e., Merton by Morris and Co., Avalon by Joel Dewberry). We will keep those with preorders posted should this change. You can view our current and upcoming collections by FreeSpirit designers on the RQ website. Now may be the time to stock up on your favorites as they may become more difficult to find as time passes!
