In Anticipation for October: 30th Anniversary & Beehive Shop Hop

We realized today that September is already almost over, which means October will soon be upon us! October is always an exciting month for the Fabric Center; it was October of 1983 when the Fabric Center was first started by Ken and Joan Cahoon! For those of you quick with numbers, that means we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary this October!! Lisa, the owner, has some pretty spectacular ideas in mind to make this anniversary particularly special and fun for our wonderful, cherished customers who have been with us all these years and have grown our business.

Additionally, we always look forward to the semi-annual Beehive Shop Hop, which this season will be from October 23-26th. This fall, the theme of the shop hop is "It's A Party!" with each participating shop distinguished by a celebration theme. To get a list and map of participating stores, visit the Beehive Shop Hop's main website or their blog. Get your planning for this cheerful tradition started early; start inviting girlfriends & family member and make it a Girl's Weekend! Don't forget that at each stop, there will be games, treats and drawings for prizes as well as free patterns for a 12" block and project!

What, you may ask, will be Fabric Center's party theme? We will be revealing our Shop Hop theme as well as our 30th Anniversary celebration plans via our monthly newsletter at the beginning of October. If you do not already receive our newsletters, visit our website and sign up online. Stay tuned for an exciting month in store!

Always looking forward to something new!

We are always getting shipments in every week, but there are times we are so excited about the new products we get in we can't help but share our excitement! We have proudly displayed right as you walk in a new collection of Moda Wool and Needles Flannels II by Primitive Gatherings along with some woolies by Marcus Fabrics. These are so luxurious and soft, they will make the perfect quilt for those crisp fall nights.

As employees, we are always eager to take a peek when new precuts come in to get an idea of what beautiful fabrics to expect in the future. We are very excited about the newest precut delivery. We have a cabinet full of Moda Layer Cakes, Charm Packs, Jelly Rolls and even some Honeycombs!  

Probably the most popular precut line from this shipment was Scrumptious. To get an idea of all the prints included in this line, check out Moda's website here.

Wren & Friends precuts would make an adorable baby or children's quilt. See this precut's full line here

Finally, we also received Sweet Pea. This is a sophisticated and rich line, see all the prints available in this precut here

If you are looking to make a darling quilt yet have no desire to undergo the laborious process of cutting, or simply are running short on time, precuts are a wonderful option! Check out our Pinterest page for ideas and projects geared for precuts. 

Finally, our last post on Displays for Sale was so successful, we sold out of most of the quilts within a matter of days. As such, we went back into storage and dug out a few more diamonds that now are for sale and looking for a wonderful home. As before, these displays are being sold only for the price of the fabric and does not include the cost of labor it took to make the quilt. These are incredible deals!!

Fall Lines

Hello quilters and crafters! We have just finished up Labor Day weekend and that means the long days of summer are quickly coming to an end. We've had new Halloween and fall lines in since July, but we didn't want to rain on anyone's parade by showcasing them too early. Now that the days are shortening, it seems perfect timing to highlight our fall lines and get you in the mood for the bewitching season.

Moda's The Boo Crew:

Henry Glass & Co.'s Legend of Webb Hill:

Henry Glass & Co.'s Jeepers Creepers:

We have many, many more miscellaneous Halloween and fall fabrics, especially a beautiful assortment of fall fabrics with gold metallic accents. 

Come in and grab what you need for your next spooky project before the pickings become slim. Now is the time to get the projects done and displayed so you have plenty of time to think of and complete Christmas presents (yes, that's even further away, but you certainly don't want to keep that to the last minute!)
