Try the classic look of Navy and White for some sharp summer style with Indigo Blues! These fabrics are reversible so you double your fabric options with each cut. Try a cute little jacket, a quilt or a purse with a selection of these crisp designs.

Vermont Row by Row

Countryside Fabrics has joined with lots of quilt shops across the country and here in Vermont to bring you an exciting program for the summer. This year’s theme is “Sew a Season.” Each shop has designed a row of blocks and will have their free pattern available to you from July 1st through September 2nd. Many shops will be making kits of their row for you to purchase as well. Collect eight patterns, sew them together however you wish and enter your completed quilt by October 31st to win some awesome prizes! The first person who brings in a finished quilt (quilted, bound, labeled) using at least 8 different rows will receive 25 fat quarters! Be sure to look at the Vermont Row by Row on facebook to see all the participating shops’ rows!

Notion of the Month

Are you overwhelmed with all the notions on the market? We will be highlighting some of our favorites each month. These might be brand new or oldies but goodies that we just can’t live or work without. This month we want to share our excitement about the Frixion Pen. This is a great fine point marker that disappears when ironed! You can use it for marking embroidery, sewing lines, quilting designs, etc. Just hit it with the iron when you don’t want to see it anymore! We have both the purple and red pens at the store. Come on in for a quick demo!

Rent-a-Ruler

It seems like every new pattern these days requires a new specialty ruler. We’d like to help you out with the expense by offering you the opportunity to rent a ruler to work on your project here in the store. For just $5.00 per hour you can use any of the special rulers we have. As new ones come on the market we’ll be adding them to our “stash” of equipment! And speaking of rulers, our special Wednesday sale item for June will be in-stock rulers at 20% off!

Spring and Summer Classes

There are too many to re-list right here, but just click on the “Classes” heading at the top of our web page and see all that’s coming up! Mystery quilt, hand and machine applique, basic machine quilting…you name it! Call the store to register for your favorite classes because they are filling up quickly!

Anniversary Celebration!

Don’t forget to join us again this year for lots of special prizes, sales and tons of fun! We’ll be celebrating on Friday and Saturday, June 20 and 21. Watch for more details!
