A big thanks to everyone that took the time to check out the new shop and leave such nice comments and great suggestions for the site. I'm definitely looking forward to making some improvements as time and budget allow. Here are the top two items on my list: 
  • Add fat quarter checkbox to category pages AND shopping cart. 
  • Add images to the collection category page.
Although I've been in business for a few years now with the shop first on etsy and then big cartel, having my own site opens up a lot more opportunities and is quite exciting!

For the giveaway, winners as chosen by the Random Number Generator are:

I love the fabric's by collection in the scrolling circles! Such a great idea! 


I love the store! Congratulations!!! I REALLY love the fat quarter option! I am just getting back into quilting and like being able to buy a little bit of a LOT of fabrics at once! It would be nice to have the fat quarter option next to the fabrics without having to click on the individual fabric first. Does that make sense? This may not be an issue for others, but our system loads slower and waiting that extra each time adds up.... ;)

Please send me a note via the contact link in the shop with your email address and I'll get the gift codes off to you.

I've also extended the coupon code LARK until May 2nd to give a few more days to take advantage of 10% off!

And we've got a live one!
It's so exciting to have the new website up and running and to see this little shop grow up!  Thanks to all that have helped make it happen!

Here's a quick summary of the features:

  • Most fabrics are priced per yard and sold in quarter yard increments - yup that's right.  purchase 3/4 yard.  4 1/4 yards. whatever you want!  The exception would be prints that are an obvious panel, or pre-cut bundles
  • Fat Quarter cuts are available at no additional charge - check the option box on the product page before adding to your cart.  Once it's in your cart, there's no way to add the FQ option - something I'm hoping to fix soon
  • Shop by collection, designer, manufacturer, color, theme, and fabric type
  • Create a wish list to save favorites or look at several choices together on the same page
  • Fabric cut discount for cuts over three yards
  • Customer appreciation discounts 

To start thing off right, I'm offering a FREE fat quarter on all purchases of a yard or more through the end of the month.   You can also receive 10% off your purchase (excluding shipping) with coupon code LARK.  Remember to enter the code on the shopping cart page prior to checkout.

AND I'll be giving away (2) $20 gift certificates here on the blog.

To enter to win, hop on over to the shop, take a peak around, then come back here and leave a comment letting me know what you like or don't like about the new site!  

Comments will close on Friday April 27th, and I'll draw winners that weekend.

This shop update is so long overdue it makes me want to cry.  Who knew it could take so long?  But it's really close now.  Like within a week close, so I'll save the sob story for another day.
It's not perfect, but close. I keep discovering little things here and there that are just a wee bit off.  I've decided they can wait.   Wait until the dust from the move settles and I've caught up on my sleep (and laundry!).

So stay tuned!  I'll be offering up a few gift certificates, coupon codes, and more on the big day!

In the meantime,  here's a little sneak peak of the home page:
