This year the April showers did bring May flowers to the desert. The desert Palo Verde trees are in full bloom – yellow flowers everywhere.  These trees are one of the most drought tolerant but give them all the rain we were lucky enough to get this year and kaboom… look at all those flowers.  To celebrate Spring and the upcoming Mother’s Day at the store we’ve added some lovely Blooming Bundles to the floor.  Carefully curated floral fabrics with companions.  4-yard bundles that will have you sewing in no time for the perfect Mother’s Day gift. 

And to celebrate Mother’s Day this year at the store Thursday, May 11 through Saturday, May 13th all floral fabric will be 15% off and if you bring your official Quilter’s Faire Little Black Bag, we will bump that discount up to 20%! 

For all our Little Black Bag Club members throughout the year, when you bring and purchase any item or items totaling $10.00 or more receive an additional punch on your loyalty card.  So don’t forget to bring your little black bag and your loyalty card when you come to the store. 

Also, May is the month that you can redeem the discount coupon card you received during the Spring Fling for generously donating food items.  The coupons are good at any store that participated in the event.
