Totally Terrific Tuesdays - Keepin' It Fresh!

Hey Everyone,

Just a little heads up. Starting tomorrow we are going to have a different Promo each Tuesday. You never know what it might be, but if you like our Facebook page you can get a preview each Monday evening. Sometimes it will be Fat Quarter Tuesday, sometimes it will be a deal on books or patterns, or notions, but most of the time it will be fabric because, let's face it, that is what we love. Like I said it could be anything. Tomorrow is gonna be a doozy! So keep a look out :)

PS. We just got new stock of Elizabeth in case you missed her the first time around.

Fabulous Fabric Friday and a Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

We are sponsoring a giveaway on Maureen's Blog today. You will have to go over there to enter. We are giving away this fat quarter bundle of Wonderland called Alicesky

Have you checked out our What's New page? We just got in the latest collection from my friend Amanda (the Quilted Fish). It is such a beautiful fresh style. Love when she does the reds and aquas. It is called Ardently Austen (an owed to Jane Austen). It is just as pretty and bright as it looks in the digital pictures but I will get some IRL pictures of the bundles today. We also got in the prettiest of the new Simply Colorful 2  prints from V&Co the plums and navys are so gorgeous. GO have a look :)

Challenge - Free Fabric for you

... all you have to do is make something with it.

What's the deets you ask? It is really simple. We will give you a mini charm pack of Modern Background Paper, a fat eighth of Arrow fabric from Lori Holt's Modern Minis, and a Fat Quarter of the Word Find fabric from Melody Miller. The only catch... you have to make something and you have to have an Instagram account and post progress photos in which you tag us @intrepidthread and hashtag #intrepidthreadchallenge

You can add other fabrics as you desire since I am sponsoring. It would be nice if you used fabrics that we carry.

We will have a grand reveal in January and one lucky winner will get a $50 gift certificate for the shop.
All given out sorry...! All you have to do is comment below to get one. Make sure I can contact you by leaving your email address. By doing this you are agreeing to make an item with the fabric and send me a picture. If you do not have something made in January for the final reveal  I will be asking you to reimburse me for the fabric and shipping, I think that is fair.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for another announcement :)

Lots of new fun stuff in the shop....

Hi Everyone,

I know I have been really quiet lately... the busies seem to have taken over my life :) But I wanted to show you all the fun new fabrics that we got in.

I love, love, love the colors and designs in The Lovely Hunt by Lizzy House... well of course I do :) it is gorgeous!

We also got this gorgeous collection from Joel Dewberry called Atrium I love it as much as I loved Heirloom and that is saying something.

We got Succulence by Bonnie Christine... it has all of those colors you all love so much... the figgy greens and plums. The designs are fresh and lovely. I have an idea for a terrarium quilt with this.

We received this sweet collection by Dear Stella that reminds me so much of Liberty prints. It is called Enchanted.  There are deer (I can't help it) foxes, bunnies, and Bees. Also they mixed into the collection this new blender called Net (you can see it below in the yellow, aqua, pink and navy) which we stocked in all the colors available.

And for something completely different... yes, I went there. Some of you who have been around for a while know that I collect these strange dolls called Asian Ball Jointed dolls... they have a sad sweet quality that really appeals to me. So when I saw Mirabelle I could not resist her... now I know this is not my usual style but I just keep thinking how I would like to take a few of the motifs and make them into bags and aprons and things ... she has a steam punk/shabby chic/thing all rolled into one and well... Here are the two main prints... I stocked a few others to go along with them too..

One last little thing... I love large font for all things (banners, pillows, scrap booking)  so I stocked this fun fabric with large font for making all those sorts of things. It is called Letter Stitch. There are a few prints in different fonts with black or white backgrounds... and of course a script on white because I can't resist those. **Wink

I hope you enjoyed our virtual shop tour :)
