It's huge. It's big. It's awesome. It's the most extensive sale we've ever held!

Amy and I came home from Quilt Market with new ideas for Yellow Bird Art - great ideas - we hope you'll agree when it's all unveiled. We scoured all the crooks and nannys of the shop for all those wonderful little things we had been storing "for later". I bet each one of you know exactly what I'm talking about. You're all storing things "for later" too! So we decided to clean house to make room for all the wonderful new things that will be arriving in the next couple of months.

Believe it or not, this entire wall of fabrics is on sale. Gotta tell you that getting up the courage to put an "X" on the ends of those bolts was hard to do. We love so many of them! But reality in retail is that you have to move the old out before you can have any new things.In the past we rarely have put any oriental fabrics on sale, but this time we narrowed our eyes down to squinty little eyes and decided that some of these fabrics have just been "bad dates" for us. You know the "how to tell if he's into you" sort of dating advice that's part of the singles' thinking these days? Well, we decided to think of our fabrics as "dates", and asked the question, "So, what have you done for me lately?". Gotta tell 'ya, some of our beloved fabrics have been very bad, bad dates and have stood us up for all practical purposes! So, they're outta here!!
This is our lovely Marsha in her little birdy apron, just waiting for customers! Some of you live a driveable distance away from Yellow Bird Art, so I'm going to encourage you, urge you to fill up that car and get your little bodies over here right now!
The sale runs from 10-5 Saturday through Thursday (including Sunday).
Today everything on sale is -20%
Sunday -30%
Monday -40%
Tuesday -50%
Wednesday -60%
Thursday -70%
Items on sale are: fabrics, kits, ribbons, trims, threads, books, patterns, notions, and heavens - I just can't name it all. When you come in, you need to look for the X on items. If it is marked with a X, then it's on sale!

Oh my gosh, I wish I lived within driving distance. I be there at the door staring in saying "open, open, open". Good luck, I truly hope you have great success with your big sale and can do you make over in record time.
