End of Year Quilt Fabric (and more) Sales

Has your wallet recovered from the holidays? If so, you may want to check out some of these online quilt shop year-end sales! In most cases, these sales end 12/31/08 and have limited supplies.

Cottage Quilts is having a Year End sale -- some great buys on books and patterns, plus take an ADDITIONAL 30% off fabrics found in the $3.99 Clearance Fabrics and Back Door Bargains. You must use the code HOLIDAY BLOCKBUSTER in the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS box (not the Coupon Box!) at check-out. Discounts are figured MANUALLY so you will not see the final price until they send you confirmation.

THREAD SALE - This is an amazing sale, even if the final total sounds very expensive. But I thought I'd post it just in case there are some serious thread /embroidery machine people in the group. Heart of Dixie Quilt Shop is having a huge sale on "Madeira Rayon 220 yd/200 m Thread Treasure Chest" - which includes 194 spools of thread ($657.50 value), an 82 design Embroidery Design CD ($214 value), a wooden 3-drawer chest to hold the thread ($160 value), Color Cards & Conversion Chart ($10 value) and a combo Thread Cutter/Needle Threader ($3 value) -- for $298.00. Total value is $1044.50 -- you save $746.50!

A WORD TO THE WISE - If you order from any of these shops, calculate your own total BEFORE submitting your order, and check that total when you receive your email confirmation. Three times I have had a problem with the totals not being figured correctly when the discount is applied AFTER ordering. In all cases, the total was applied correctly when I contacted them, but if I hadn't noticed and brought it to their attention, I wouldn't have gotten the correct discount.
