Make Something for the Holidays Sale
To help you out with your holiday crafting, the workroom is bringing you some fun opportunities to save. From now until Wednesday December 7th, the workroom is having a huge fabric sale. The more fabric you buy, the more you save. Purchase 2 metres or more and get 10% off. Purchase 4 metres or more and get 20% off. All fabric in the shop is included in the sale, except for 3 collections (Outfoxed, Curio & Putting on the Ritz). The sale pricing is based on your total quantity. For example, 8 fat quarters plus 2 metres = 4 metres = 20% off. Sale pricing is also included on fat quarter bundles, jelly rolls and layer cakes too! It’s the perfect time to get all the supplies you need to make the gifts on your list and also to treat yourself and build your stash.
If you’re looking for a sewing machine or hoping to get one as a gift this year, our Bernina sewing machines and sergers are on sale until January 4, 2012. Download a copy of the Bernina Holiday Savings flyer here. There is also another opportunity to save on your purchases of regular priced merchandise.
