Planning your Black Friday Shopping!

I don't know about you, but I personally will not be doing any "out and about" black friday shopping this year. I'd rather not get trampled in Walmart trying to by a $5.00 toy. But, I am already planning my online fabric shopping! There has been much talk lately about supporting your local small business this weekend, and though they are not local, my sponsors are small. They also DEPEND on online customers to sustain their business, in fact all of my sponsors have online shops only! So I encourage you to stop on by and support some of these wonderful small businesses! They all have great selections of product and really great customer service! Here is a little sneak peak of the sales they will be having…

Well no sneak peak here :) Fat Quarter Shop is keeping their Black Friday sales super secret until Friday morning, BUT they have told me it is going to be a BIG sale! So be ready.

I don't do dishes I sew instead

Salt Water is up for preorder at $7.65/yd - if possible place as separate order. In stock fabrics will ship ASAP. Pre-orders kept separately.

Notting Hill is 10% off. No code necessary. Orders over $60 get free shipping with code HEYTHANKS The free shipping applies to in-stock fabrics only. You cannot use the coupon on pre-order fabric because its already promo priced. Alright time to start planning your shopping and adding to your Pile O' Fabric! I suppose I will need to start a new series very soon on stash busting projects, after all that fabric you will be buying ;) On another note! I am very excited about the sales this week, BUT more excited about Thanksgiving. I know in our consumer raging culture it so easy to be distracted by everything we have. But, I hope we will all stop and remember the importance of Thanksgiving. And be reminded that though we celebrate thankfulness on Thanksgiving, we ought to be celebrating thankfulness EVERY day. There are so many things I am thankful to God for and I would love to share them with you this Thanksgiving, post to come :)
