We've held off raising our fabric prices as long as possible. We are still at just $9.00 per yard for all of our fabulous designer fabric, which is a darn great price!
However, since we've been adding more and more wonderful fabrics to our inventory, the time has come to raise our fabric prices from $9.00 per yard to $10.00 per yard.
Ready for the good news?
1) You have until September 1st to purchase fabric at the current price of $9.00 per yard. So now is the time to stock up on all the fabric you've been coveting. Don't forget that we have some great holiday fabrics.
2) We are NOT going to have to raise the price of our napkins at any time in the foreseeable future.
Keep in mind that you can always get creative with our fabric scraps - which are quite a bargain!
