You may have noticed in our latest email that we have some great
batik books on sale. In the past, we used to show you a few books that
we enjoyed, but they didn't neccessarily coincide with the collection
being featured in the email. Going forward, we have changed the way we
do things a little bit. In every collection email, we will be featuring a
book, or several books, that our staff has hand-selected as being great
for the collection. We feel that this will create a more meaningful
experience for you, and you can trust that the books you are buying are
just right for your needs.
This week's email features our new, limited edition summer batiks. *Swoon*. The books we selected for the email are a great mix of our staff's go-to batik resources. Even better, all of the books featured in this week's email are 40% off now through May 16th.
The first book, Nature's Beauty in Applique,
offers some incredible projects that were inspired by the author's stay
in England. The table runners, placemats, and other fun projects use
batik fabrics wonderfully, and really show off how batiks can make a
project pop. Just look at this amazing wall hanging!
One day I was sitting down for a meeting with our fearless leader,
Matt, and we were talking about sales and what quilters would want. He
asked me if quilters would ever just want a handful of really good books
at 50% off. My answer of course was “heck yeah!” and from that, this
sale was born. I started with a poll of the Connecting Threads
department to see what books they would recommend for quilters. From
there, Judy and I tried to “spread the wealth” and get books that would
suit beginners to experts and that touched on a variety of topics.
The following is a list of our 10 best picks for every quilter. The best part? Each of these books is 50% off until April 4th!
As you may have already seen, thanks to our March Madness sale, our beautiful Hope Chest collection is 50% off from now until Wednesday, March 28th. I absolutely love this bright and cheery collection. There are few better lines I can think of for a light and airy summer quilt. The colors are soft, not too overpowering, and are just the right thing to brighten up a room. And if you live anywhere near the Pacific Northwest, you're probably craving anything that can help brighten up your home. Ha!
While we ran out of kits for this collection pretty quickly, there
are a few patterns that I know it would be amazing for. First and
foremost, the On a Whim pattern by Thimble Blossoms would be amazing!
Ready for some great news? March Madness sales are back! That's right, for the month of March, we will be featuring a new one-week sale in each of our weekly emails.

When we moved into our new place this past summer, I was undoubtedly excited to make new curtains for my daughter’s bedroom.
