More fabrics to be reduced !

I've been madly tagging fabrics with the special price tags, but more to be done tomorrow. 
All these extra reductions will be ready for you tomorrow and over the coming couple of weeks. 
I want to sell enough fabrics to enable me to remove all the fabrics from the kitchen to make a special area there. 
More news on that later !!!

Fabrics on sale - March madness sale.

  It's taking too long and too many pins to tag all the fabrics I am reducing so some bolts don't have the tag, just the coloured dot on top of each bolt e.g. 90% of the fabric shown are pink 'dotted'
