Hawthorne Threads What can you say about a fabric company that is brought to you by two love birds that love fabric! Well plenty! I could spend hours on end, looking at all the modern and exciting fabrics they have at Hawthorne Threads. Let me point out some great features of their Fabric Site!
When you type HawthorneThreads.com into your browser you land on Lindsay's Picks...They are always fabulous! Here are the current selections...
Along the left side you can select how you want to browse their fabrics...but before you go there...get familiar with their Tiered Pricing...a wonderful system of discounts for you that are automatically calculated at your check out. Make sure you are logged in first!
A fun feature, when you click on a fabric that you like, scroll down a bit, people have uploaded samples of different kinds of work using that fabric. You will get a real world feel for what that fabric can look like in a project. Also as you scroll down the page you will see other fabrics that will coordinate with the one you are selecting, they will show you alternate colorways and if you like a particular color in the print, they will show you other fabric lines that have similar color in their prints by just clicking on a color you like under "find coordinates by colors in this print"
Right under their logo, you will find a search bar. Since our Facebook theme this month is Christmas in July... Searching Christmas you will find an amazing selection of all things Christmas for your quilting pleasure!
Want to know what the latest arrivals are? Want to be on the cutting edge of their fabric universe? Click the "New Arrivals" button at the top and let yourself leisurely peruse the offerings.
Along the left of their page are different ways you can search your fabrics. Maybe you like pre-cuts, maybe you have a favorite designer, a color or theme you are working with. There are literally endless ways for you to search their fabric selections, endless ways that will inspire you and help you to see fabric and color combinations you may not have thought about previously.
They carry Aurifil Threads. And a great selection of patterns, be sure to look at those... some are PDF format so you can get them immediately. I love this Spice Market Tote by Amy Butler.
While you are cruising their site, ENTER TO WIN! YES!!! They have a giveaway! OH, can it get much better? Well, yes actually! They change weekly but this week's giveaway features the Arizona line of fabric, a yummy fat quarter bundle of goodness! Get over there quick and enter!
See what wonderful things 2 love birds can create? I knew you'd love them.
