Quilts came about when a politically ambitious Scotsman appealed to every party by wearing all the tartans at once. Embrace multifarious fabrics with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of quilting fabrics and sewing supplies at Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.
The nimble-needled sisters at Sew Sisters Quilt Shop stock top-of-the-line quilting fabrics, patterns, supplies, and sewing paraphernalia for projects of all dimensions. Fabric styles and patterns suit a plethora of rooms and seasons, and boast manufacturer names such as Northcott, Moda, RJR, Benartex, and Wilmington. Textiles average $9.99 per metre, and for caretakers of chilly giants, the store’s clearance shelves boast more than 300 bolts at $6.99 per metre. Quilt, stitchery, and pillowcase kits equip fingers with textiles and the skills to sew and quilt small and large projects ($8.99+); patterns and instructional books ($3.49+) counteract urges to construct potential heirlooms out of Fruit Roll-Ups. Sew Sisters’ Block-of-the-Month programs prompt seasonal participation in projects and clubs including the Bargain Lover’s Club, which furnishes members from across Canada with 10 beefy quarters each month ($17.99).
