News to Use from RQ March 27th
Posted by KJCB on March 28, 2019
We're down to the last few days of March 2019! Block of the Month participants: don't forget that our next meeting is not until April 6th. This means that blocks may not be picked up before April 6th and by-mail participants will not receive their blocks until after April 6th. Those who are signed-up for the Teapot Sampler BOM: we've heard from In the Beginning Fabrics that fabric deliveries have been delayed so we won't be starting this project until our May 2019 meeting. On to the news...

Did You Know?
The majority of the batiks we carry come from Timeless Treasures and are "Tonga" Batiks. Most Timeless Treasures batik collections have 20 skus and are available in Tonga Treat Strip Jrs. (2 1/2" strips) and Shortcakes (10" squares). Timeless does an excellent job of supporting their batiks with patterns (both free and purchase) which we kit when possible! Visit our batik section in store or online to view a rainbow of colors and prints.
