Each year, we hold our once-a-year-only Sale on the anniversary of the opening of our new shop. The sale starts Australia Day (26th January). You need to be early to grab the best bargains. If you can't make it on Australia Day, the sale runs for the following week, from Thursday through to Saturday inclusive, so you can take advantage of the wonderful specials then.
During this special event, there is FABRIC on sale at wonderfully low prices, special offers, new designs, and sign up offers for our newest BOM "My Fair Lady", our gorgeous little scrap quilt BOM "Elke's Garden of Daydreams & Forget-Me-Nots" as well as our most popular recent BOM "An English Country Garden", and also for our GOM (*Gift of the Month* programme) which starts in February 2017.
Special for 2017: We have gone through our fabric shelves, and have set aside a large number of our beautiufl fabrics, some at the very special for $7 per metre, or $5 if you finish the bolt! There are gorgeous florals and co-ordinates, all in pretty colours. Some baby fabrics, and some non-pretties are also on special at these prices.
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, we will have WHOLE BOLTS priced ridiculously low at a price for the bolt, as is. Some of these work out to around $2 per metre. We won't unwind the fabric from these bolts ~ we have estimated how much is on each bolt, so be assured you will buy an amazing bargain with these ones. Some (but not all) have a little fading in the first few metres, but the remainder of the bolt will probably be fine. There will be a very limited supply and they will be snapped up as the gate opens I would imagine!
We will also have some even more beautiful fabrics priced at $10 per metre, with a minimum cut of half a metre.
The courtyard outside the shop will be a haven of pretty kits, quilts, fabric packs, patterns and much, much more. Msot of these will be reduced, some at half price, so make sure you check this section out before you leave. here are baby kits, bag kits, quilt kits, Block of the Month packs, and selected patterns, all on sale at up to substantial discounts off the original price.
But most of all, we will have a HUGE FABRIC SALE. Even some of our precious Quiltgate fabrics go on sale! Older designs, and many other ranges will be cleared out at prices that are unbelievable: $7, $10, $10 per metre - with minimum cut requirements of between half and one metre, depending on the reduced price of the fabric. The price goes even lower if you purchase the entire bolt of any one fabric! We have been told by many of our customers that our Annual Sale is well worth the trip, as they can see we are determined to clear out much of the existing stock to make room for new deliveries. Friends often came together, and made a day of it - with lots of fun and laughter and some really great buys. The sale starts at 9.30 on Australia Day (January 26th), and many early birds arrive at opening time to grab the best bargains. The Sale goes on, rain, hail or shine. We have held our Sale despite floods, cyclones, hot sticky weather, and heavy rain, so don't think we will not open on that day! We have a new undecover area outside the shop, and our festive large white marquis, located out the front, houses the bulk of the Sale fabrics. We open the gates at 9.30 on the dot.
