Hello everyone – Merry Christmas!
This Thursday is our last Sale Event of the year! If you still have presents to make – stop in and see us between 2 and 8 pm this Thursday, December 5th!
After this sale we’ll be taking a little break but we will be back with lots of exciting fabrics for you in January. Watch our website, Facebook and Instagram posts for upcoming sale dates and workshops.
Check out our latest donation of leather pieces – lots of different colours and textures, dozens of pre-cut rectangles, great for cell phone bags and zipper change purses. Some larger pieces also available – large enough for a tote bag – find the display in the home decor section.
COTTON HOODIE FLEECE
OMG! – textured and smooth, this hoodie fleece feels so delicious and is super comfy next to your skin. We are thankful to a local designer for supporting OSF with this donation. This cotton fleece is perfect for hoodies, lap blankets and cushions and so much more. Colours are black, charcoal and two shades of gray.
Do you love red textured vinyl, natural -looking faux snake skin or glittery silver vinyl – we have these and more in the Home Decor section. Imagine making a textured vinyl tote bag for your favourite someone or re-covering that foot stool for the holidays.
The’re back – packages of muslin squares all ready for your next craft project! Folks are using muslin to make beeswax food wraps – this makes it super-eco friendly – not only are you reducing dependency on plastic, you are keeping textiles out of the landfill – it’s a win/win!
And…still a healthy supply of Christmas and regular quilting cottons available for those last minute Christmas crafts and gifts.
WHAT’S COMING UP?
We are working on some new sewing workshops for you and we should have our Winter schedule ready in the next few weeks. We do know that we’ll be offering a “Hoodie” workshop at the end of January – what a perfect way to use up all that beautiful cotton hoodie fleece that we just got in :)
