during this Reopening Period!
Just to review - Temporary Store Hours are:

Check it out!!!!! Kantha Cloth is back in stock - 5 new Bolts!
Originating in South Asia, Kantha is a centuries-old form of embroidered quilt making. Traditionally, Kantha was handmade by women and passed down from generation to generation, much like a lovingly pieced quilt. Windham Fabrics' unique Kantha is two-ply with simple, hand embroidered running stitches throughout. Embroiderers of this two-layer cotton fabric do not use hoops or frames which gives the fabric a wavy, slightly wrinkled effect.
Kantha fabric can be used for a variety of projects: quilts, bags, table toppers, pillow covers, jackets and even upholstery!
Save the scraps to use as patches for jackets and jeans. The possibilities are endless!
During the time we were closed, we managed to set up our online sales shop. To be honest, we are amazed and proud of this accomplishment, because it gave you, and will continue to give you, access to the Shop 24/7. So if you can’t make it in, let your fingers do the shopping. We also cut several new kits, re-stocked some favorites, and continued finding new, great patterns.

HOW CAN WE HELP?
Doctors, nurses and hospitals have put out a call for us to make cloth masks,
as they are running out of the N95 masks that they need.
Follow this link to find out how you too can help!
Hope you are all doing well and haven't burned your fingers making bias tape for face masks. Who knew our skills would be in such demand. The online sales have been fun and challenging for us, but remember, we stay sharp by learning new skills. Check it out, it's working out well and we're still adding new fabrics. If you are one of the talented people who are thinking of doing Edyta Sitar's Mystery Quilt 2020 or her BOM, she's making them with her Laundry Basket's Super Bloom. She's out of the fabric, but we recently got it in and we have it available online or you can just call us. Gorgeous quilt! Also, if you have spring fever, we have got Sunshine. Pictures don't do it justice.
