The 12 Days of Christmas - Day 12

It’s our last day of the 12 Days of Christmas at The Quilt Asylum!

Today’s Deal is:  Schnibbles Times Two by Carrie Nelson
Regular price:  $27.00      Today’s Price:  $20.00

Order Online
Do you know what a Schnibble is?  According to the Dictionary of American Regional English, it’s a small bite or a nibble.  Carrie began designing small quilt patterns using 5” charm squares and called them Schnibbles.  This book is a compilation of 12 of those small quilt patterns, but she has also upsized each project into a larger quilt using Layer Cakes, or 10” squares.  These patterns are great for using up that stash of pre-cuts you may be hoarding, or use them to cut up and reduce your stash!

This Daily Deal is only good for today, December 14, 2011.
  
  •  If you would like for us to put one of these items in your gift bag, you can send us an e-mail, call us at 972.562.2686, or order it online and we will hold it for you.  You must provide a credit card number with the first item you select – we will hold all your information and bill you on the 15th.  Daily Deals will also be available for immediate purchase in the store.
  • You do not have to purchase the deal each day; you choose only those items you’d like to have, but each deal will ONLY be offered for one day.  Available quantities may be limited, and if you snooze, you may lose!
  • On December 15, you can come in and pick up all your goodies packaged in a holiday gift bag, ready to put under your tree!  Or better yet, send your husband to pick it up and he’ll feel like a hero with none of the hassle of holiday shopping!  All online orders will be shipped on the 15th as well.
We hope you have enjoyed our 12 Days of Christmas event.  We’d like to wish you a joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year!

Today’s Deal is:  Clover Stack ‘n Stitch Thread Tower
Regular price:  $37.50      Today’s Price:  $26.00

Designed by Nancy Zieman for Clover, this handy gadget allows you to organize up to 30 spools of thread (of varying varieties) and guide them directly to your sewing machine.  You can load up the threads you purchased yesterday!! (LOL…)

This thread tower is especially useful if you have an embroidery machine.  Nancy’s hint is to sequentially number the space below the spool pegs with a permanent marker, then arrange the spools in stitching order.  No more confusion on which thread goes where!

The 12 Days of Christmas - **MUST READ**


It has come to our attention that there may be some confusion over ordering our 12 Days of Christmas deals online.

We DO NOT have visibility to “wish lists” in our online store.  If you have been placing daily deals in a “wish list” basket to submit to us at a later date, we HAVE NOT received your requests.  You must complete your daily deal request through the complete checkout process in order for us to know that you wish to receive these items. 

If you have a “wish list” stored online, please process it TODAY.  We will do our best to honor your daily deal requests, but some of our items are of limited quantity.  If you wish to participate in future 12 Days of Christmas daily deals, you must complete each order online daily or simply respond back to info@thequiltasylum.com to get the deal.  If you have submitted at least one order with a credit card number, you can use the “Call Me” payment method on future 12 Days of Christmas orders so that you don’t have to dig out your credit card each day.

We are not processing credit cards until late Wednesday, December 14th or early Thursday, December 15.  We will only process payment ONCE for all the items in your bag.  If you are picking your bag up in the store, disregard the shipping charges on your online order.  You, of course, will not be billed for those.  If we are shipping your bag to you, we will only charge you for the necessary postage to send your bag to you – it will not be an accumulated total of shipping charges on all your orders.

We want this to be fun for you, and we want to make sure all of you who want to participate have the ability to do so.  Again, we sincerely apologize if there has been any confusion.

Until tomorrow’s deal-

The 12 Days of Christmas - Day 8

It’s Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas at The Quilt Asylum!

Today’s Deal is:  Aurifil 50wt 1300mm Thread – 4 Basic Colors
Regular price:  $46.00      Today’s Price:  $35.00

Order Online

Did you know that we are now carrying Aurifil thread?  I know, you’re asking “So what’s the big deal about that?”  Well, let me tell you!  It’s made in Italy.  It has the tensile strength of 50 weight piecing thread, but it is thinner (making the spool size look deceptively small).  It doesn’t lint as bad as Star or Mettler thread.  And it’s the thread of choice for big-time quilters like Edyta Sitar (of Laundry Basket Quilts), Jinny Beyer, Kaye England, Marti Michell, Pat Sloan, and Sharon Pederson.  It’s a great thread for not only piecing, but appliqué, embroidery and quilting.

To introduce you to this fabulous thread, we are offering a package deal consisting of large spools in 4 basic colors:  ecru, black, white & gray.

This Daily Deal is only good for today, December 9, 2011.

When I buy fabric, I tend to gravitate towards all the bright and colorful prints.  I’ve noticed that my stash is woefully shy of basic background fabrics!  We’ve put together a special pack of basics:  (10) half-yard cuts of white-on-white fabrics for you.  It’s a quilter’s “White” sale!

Regular price:  $35.00      Today’s Price:  $29.00

Are you like me?  Do you use your rotary blade until it won’t even cut butter?  Why do we do that?  And isn’t it Heaven when we do get around to changing it out?  Most rotary cutting accidents occur due to dull blades (due to the added pressure we use on the cutter) …. I know that sounds weird but it’s true.  Make sure you have spare blades on hand by treating yourself this season with a 5-pack of Olfa 45mm rotary blades. 

And go ahead and change that blade.  I know it’s been a long time… ;)
