Is spring really on the way?
That's what some optimistic people claim, though looking out the window I'm not quite as convinced. (Apparently that apocryphal groundhog agrees with me -- and did you know that in Alaska February 2 is Marmot Day? Stick with me, folks, and you'll learn something new every so often!)
In honor of the warmer weather that has to come someday -- it does, right? -- we've put some marvelous springy fabrics and notions on sale. Ranging from bright colors like our topaz hemp/silk charmeuse and the excellent lime/periwinkle stripe jersey to the wonderful floral Garden Wide-Width Sateen, the fabrics are so much fun ... and the patterns are marvelously inspiring too: have you seen the petal dress and jumper or the pocket pants? (The pocket pants were such a favorite around our house when Theodore was little -- he would fill the pockets to overflowing and pretend to be a peddler, a magician, a traveller, a scholar, and so much more. They're easy to make and so much fun to wear!)
(And hey, for our Southern Hemisphere friends -- and those of you who, like me, are convinced that it will be cold forever and ever -- we have some warmer fabrics on sale as well. I'm still loving our fleecy white knit velour, and our pre-shrunk natural canvas is strong, durable, and wonderfully heavy. Try making a pair of canvas pants lined with flannel for yourself or a kiddo who likes to play outside ... toasty warm!)
This sale is only good through February 23, so don't miss it!
