America has enjoyed a long tradition of textile manufacturing, from Betsy Ross cross-stitching the Constitution to Neil Armstrong knitting the Eagle lunar lander. Start your own textile tradition with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of quilting and sewing supplies at Quilts Olé in Corrales.
The fabric hunters at Quilts Olé maintain a stockpile of over 3,000 bolts of fabric and an encyclopedic selection of patterns and kits. Wax-dyed batik fabrics can be found en masse, and a cornucopia of flannels await transformation into huggable bed sheets or basketball jerseys for a team of lumberjacks. Patterns such as the chili quilt ($20) are scalable into crafts of multiple sizes, so the finished product can be used as a wall hanging or lap throw, and quilters can add shimmer to quilts with fabric in colors such as shell and mint ($9.35 / yd.) from Michael Miller's Fairy Frost collection. New fabrics are delivered often, and seasoned sewers lead free demonstrations of quilting techniques and advanced calculus on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.
