{choke} ... unreal sale!

Run, don't walk, over to Quilt Arts online. They are having a 50% off sale. Yes, that's right ... 50% off all fabric! And all the top designers -- Amy, Joel, Kaffe, Heather, Denyse, Tina, Sandy, and more. Kokka and Japanese fabrics, too. Fat quarters are only $1.25 ... WHAT??!!


And yes, they do have the coveted rocketship fabric that I've featured here on my blog a few times.

Thanks to Flickr pal lharsma for the tip!

  4. Aaah John - just when I promised myself not to go on a fabric. Now I'm going to be tempted and preoccupied all day with thoughts of that cute polka dot Michael Miller fabric that I've been wanting - at 50% off. How to get my mind off of this ... I know - I'll go out and spend some time in the sunshine - oops can't do that - we haven't seen the sun in 5 days - have we - so I guess I'll have to place an order. I'll be stimulating the economy - right?

  5. Glad I could help!

    I was tempted by the rocket fabric, but wasn't sure since I couldn't see a bigger swatch.

    I did get the Michael Miller dots that Lynn mentioned tho- well, one of the dots.

    I'm so tempted to go back.

  12. Bad John, BAD. Look what you made me do! I ordered fabric. ARRRGH.

    Oh well, it was only 8 FQs and a yard. But still, aren't you ashamed?

    hehehee

    I did my part to stimulate the economy. Oh...and I did get some polka dots.

  19. Awww man...I just bought a ton of fabric last night somewhere else. Of course that did not stop me from pickinng up a few things here. I got a few yards of things that NEVER go on sale. Thanks for the tip!

  20. I actually deleted the email from Quilt Arts in order to resist a sale. Then Jennie sent me an email about it and well, I caved. I got the rocket fabric too. Although, who knows if I will actually get it or not if everyone else ordered it as well! I hope you got your Joel Dewberry Aviary fabric!

    THANK YOU for the heads up :D

  22. And $73 later...

    Thanks for the heads up!

  23. Yep- I spend more of Buggletquilt's money on fabric than I do of my own! And somehow she's still my friend...

  24. Mission accomplished ... fabric ordered. Now to figure out how to head off mailman.

  25. Thanks! I just ordered my Amy Butler 20-pack of Fat Quarters. Even with the cost of postage and package this is MUCH cheaper than the fabrics over here in the Netherlands. So thanks!

  26. (with utmost sarcasm...) Thanks a lot! I went there this afternoon and got a ton of stuff. Then just realized at these prices I could get a little more (sigh!)).

  27. I found Australian Aboriginal fabrics that I've admired and just couldn't buy -- till today. I have mass quantities headed my way. Appreciate the news about the sale. They should give you a commission! Love your work and enjoy your blog, Quilt Dad.

  28. You are evil - but I thank you for sharing! I was getting ready to go to bed, but always happy to buy Amy Butler on sale!! I was looking for some of these prints just today! I had to restrain myself....

  35. They sent me an email about 5 days later that my order shipped, then it was sent Priority and I got it in a couple of days.

  36. Anonymous, no, I have not yet received my shipment, but I have been reading that other bloggers have been getting their shipments slowly but surely. I am not alarmed yet -- I am sure they were SLAMMED when word of that sale got out. Of course, I have no affiliation with them and I hope I won't regret giving them a plug on my blog! Def. keep me posted as you hear more ...

  37. I placed 2 orders - got a small portion of the first one so far. Many of my choices were marked 'sold out' on the form - one larger cut was sent in 2 pieces. Not sure I'll be using them again.
