As Lizzy House said on twitter the other day, “I think more people need to think about the actual curating of their inventories.” And that has been my exact plan this year, because as it turns out, Above All Fabric is actually supposed to make money. It’s not just a hobby. ;-)
So where do we go from here? Well to start with – get rid of stuff! The remainder of this month, I’ll be clearing things out.
Amy Butler fabrics and patterns are marked way way down. And after May, only a select few will remain in the shop.
Same goes for much of the sale section. After May, much of this won’t be here anymore. If there is something you’ve been thinking about, now is the time to snatch it up.
There are other sales. Lots of sales. In fact – all Bag patterns are at least 30% off. (sorry, due to contracts, the downloadable patterns are not included.) And there are new awesome prices for much of what isn’t officially on sale.
I have other great new fabrics too – like more solid colors of corduroy! The Flamingo is a perfect pink for Sandi Henderson’s corduroy prints! And the graphite is to die for! (By the way, denim is back in stock!)
So from now on, you should notice a much more intentional shop. If that makes any sense. You may have notice subtle changes already…but more (and bigger) changes are coming. And I hope that it works out cuz I LOVE fabric, I love sewing and I love working for all of you!
And I’d like to give a couple of you subscriptions to Stitch magazine, which only comes out twice a year. The Spring issue is one of my favorites so far, so I decided to get it for the shop. And the Fall issue will be awesome too. Just leave a comment here and you’ll be entered to win both this magazine and the fall one (when it comes out!) International peeps are always welcomed to join in the fun! And if you already have one, leave a comment anyway just because you might win…and I’ll figure something out for you in the meantime!
PS. I have other things to give away too…but it’s not quite the right time yet. Anna, Sandi and Joel’s new books are all included in some of those things. Stay tuned! And sign up for the newsletter too. :o
PPS. The link to sign up for notification as soon as the Knits are on the way is working now. Sorry about that!
