Special Guest from Shannon Fabrics!

We were incredibly excited to receive a special guest yesterday to the store! Shannon Fabrics is the maker of one of our favorite fabrics: cuddle. Shannon Fabrics is the industry leader in plush fabric, offering the widest selection of plush fabrics, like cuddle and faux fur, in the World! Shannon Fabrics recently held a contest called the Sweetest Rewards Contest aimed at rewarding their loyal customers, divided into three categories of purchasers. Fabric Center was entered into the contest at the highest level, or the "Sweetest" level, as being one of Shannon's top purchasers in the nation (if you can't infer by our reputation for having the best selection of cuddle in the Salt Lake Valley and at the best prices too, we go through a lot of cuddle!! On average, we place a new order of cuddle every two weeks. Wow!). Low and behold we won!

Arvin Pairavi visited us yesterday to award Lisa, the owner of Fabric Center, the winner of the Shannon Fabrics Sweetest Rewards Member Contest! By winning, Lisa will get advantages for shipping and ordering new cuddle prints, access to design specialist who will share special cuddle projects to display in store as well as to opportunity to travel to Spring Quilt Market 2014 and get a Behind the Scenes experience with Shannon while they represent at Quilt Market. This will be a wonderful experience for Lisa to explore what will be next on the horizon in the quilting and fabric industry and what to carry in store to meet the needs of our customers!

Not only was Mr. Pairavi impressed by our large cuddle selection, including our beautiful color coded cuddle wall, he also shared some insight into the special nature of cuddle and what sets it apart from other plush material. Did you know that the term "Cuddle" is actually a proprietary term held by Shannon Fabrics? We didn't either, and  if you are at all familiar with plush material, you like us have become used to hearing the terms "cuddle" and "minkee" interchanged randomly. However, there is a big difference between the two. Cuddle is heavier with a thicker, longer pile whereas minkee tends to be thinner and lighter. To ensure you have the warmest and softest blanket that will wear and hold up for years to come, buy Cuddle from Shannon fabrics (always available here at Fabric Center).

It was such a pleasure to receive a visit from Shannon Fabrics. Keep checking back with us as we look forward to working with them to bring you tips, tricks, projects and other cuddle updates. To get an idea, check our their blog: My Cuddle Corner. Congratulations to Lisa for winning the grand prize, but also a giant thank you to you our customers! We are so happy that we can provide such a large array of plush fabric to meet the needs and wishes of our customers, and to be able to do so at great prices. As Shannon Fabric's motto goes, "Making the world a softer place", we love knowing we help our customers bring warmth and softness into their homes to share with their families while making it affordable to do so. Once again thank you!

With cuddle on the brain, don't forget: we have all our bolted cuddle on sale 10% off as well as all solid color and dimple cuddle on sale for $12! These make excellent Christmas gifts, stop in before the end of the month to get your cuddle on sale. See you in store!

New Fabrics Have Arrived!

We got a whole bunch of new fabric lines in these last few days by Windham, Moda and Riley Blake. All us clerks are dying over which is our favorite and praying we'll be receiving a pay check this month... that is if we haven't spent it on all this new fabric!

What we are really excited to share is our 4 new bolts of 90" wide chevron quilt backing! Chevrons are so popular and chic and now you can back your quilt in one of these awesome prints! They are $6.97 a yard and come in black, red, navy and gray!

As soon as this beautiful line was put on the floor customers were purchasing yardage! This line is called Wallflowers and is by Windham Fabrics. This is going to be a popular line, we can tell, and it won't surprise us if it sells out quickly! To see details of this line, check out Windham Fabric's official page for the line here.

This line by Moda is so rich and the colors can simply be described as "juicy". Not only is the fabric cute but we love the name of the line: Bobbins and Bits. To see details of this line, visit Moda's website here

We've featured this line previously as precuts, but we have finally received Scrumptious by Moda in yardage! And it is absolutely scrumptious, definitely a line to make your mouth water. Find the details of this line here. 

Another line by Moda that we are so excited to now be carrying is Bluebird Park. Yep, those are little hedgehogs you see there, along with adorable bikes, balloons and other cute critters. Details can be found here

The last of our newest Moda shipments is Wren Friends. I believe Lisa, the owner, particularly loves this line because she bought every single print in the line! Yep, we have them all and each one is lovely, especially these border prints! For details, check out Moda's website here. 

What fun colors! This line is called My Sunshine and is by Riley Blake. Check out Riley Blake's official page for this line for details. 

This Riley Blake line featuring adorable little birds is called Lovey Dovey. This is perfect for early Valentine's Day projects (I know it's too early to be discussing Valentine's Day when we still have Thanksgiving and Christmas to think of first. But with a line this cute, I just can't help myself!) Find details about Lovey Dovey here

We're dying over this cute line. Not only is it absolutely adorable, but it goes to benefit a good cause. This is Think Pink! by Riley Blake and is to raise breast cancer awareness! Find out more about this line here

Finally we have a line for the boys: Snips and Snails by Riley Blake. This line is also available in flannel. To find out more about this adorable line, find it here

All these fun new lines by Moda, Riley Blake and Windham can be found at Fabric Center in West Jordan, Utah and, as always, at our wonderful prices. Don't forget our motto: Service, Selection, Savings!
