National Cuddle Up Day is January 6th!
In honor of such a fun day and because it is so cold outside, we are offering all our Cuddle (Minky) fabrics and kits at 15% off for the month of January.  You can order thru the website without using a code and still get Free Shipping on a $75.00 purchase.  Or come into the shop and cuddle it in person while making your selection(s).
  Unlike a lot of fleece, Minky fabric is easy to work with and ever so soft!  We carry Minky from Shannon, Northcott, Benartex, Moda  and Timeless Treasures.
