You’re about to hand out candy to all the little trick-or-treaters, but how about a little treat for yourself and your neighborhood? Help our local College Hill food pantry fill their shelves while creating wiggle room on ours. You can help Silk Road Textiles reach out locally as well as globally. Food donations help sustain and strengthen our neighbors; new yarn and fabric help support our global partners. Treats all around! October 31-Nov 3 30% OFF all SKINNY BOLTS & SKINNY YARN (SBSY) Bring in 3 non-perishable food items to receive an additional 5% off Bring in 5 to receive an additional 10% off What is a skinny bolt or skinny yarn? Fabric bolts with 5 yards or fewer (SB-skinny bolts) OR yarns with 3 skeins or fewer of a dye lot (SY-skinny yarn). The deal: SBSY will be 30% off*, but you have to take it all to get the discount. We will indicate the obvious contenders, but you can search the shelves to find what we may have missed! Just like a treasure hunt! Treat the Hungry? Bring in non-perishable foods/canned goods and receive an extra 5-10% off your Skinny Bolt and/or Skinny Yarn total purchase. If you don’t find a skinny bolt or yarn that begs to go home with you, apply the 5-10% off your most expensive fabric or yarn purchase. Collected food items will be donated to Christ’s Community in College Hill, a united outreach of nine churches serving the College Hill neighborhood. Christ’s Community will distribute donations as needed via their local food pantry and holiday meal baskets. It will be fun to see what good food donations you bring and to see what good deals you find! Maybe something you’ve been eyeing for a while or a brand new arrival that’s already been whittled away. New “SBSY” will come along every day! Check back often during the event. Bust a bolt larger than 5 yards or wipe out a dye lot bigger than 3 skeins, and the last 5 yards or 3 skeins will receive the skinny price and food donation discount. Traveler Bag owners, don’t forget, you always get 10% off your regularly priced fabric and yarn purchase. Don’t own a bag? You earn one for free with a $200 purchase. Questions? Stop in, and we’ll be glad to explain more!

“Green, which is Nature’s colour, is restful, soothing, cheerful, and health-giving.” – Paul Brunton This month we opted to “mix it up” and offer a selection from different designers. Featuring patterns by George Mendoza, Amy Butler and the designers of Art Gallery, M&S Textiles, P&B Textiles, and Northcott, this fresh set of green prints will brighten up your 6-pack Sampler stash. We recommend that you use these fabrics together or mix them up with other fabrics in your collection for holiday gifts. Come in and talk to us if you need some inspiration or specific pattern ideas. Use the included Presencia thread on a fabric with opposite value (light on dark, or dark on light) to create some great free-motion designs that enhance the inherent pattern. Create some pieced graduated strips for a great “pop” in a future quilt. Have fun and get creative!
Since summer is ending and fall is approaching, we chose Lonni Rossi’s “Facets,” inspired by beautiful spicy red peppers, rusty saffron, the colors of curry, cinnamon and cardamom, with a little wine, figs and plums thrown in for good measure. The Facets designs will take you on a visual journey into the land of spice along the Silk Road. Lonni Rossi is an accomplished graphic designer, internationally known fabric designer, color specialist, art quilt maker, pattern designer and teacher. We suggest creating a set of quilted coffee mug cozies for you and your friends for fall football games or backyard fire pits. A cell phone wallet would be a great fall accessory that is streamlined and convenient. These fabrics would also make a great fall holiday table runner or paper-pieced wall hanging. (Silk Road Textiles has classes available this fall for all of these ideas….register today if you would like to learn any or all of them!)
