May is a month of many events, May Day, Mother's Day, Graduation Day (for many), Memorial Day, among other events and outings we all plan to jump start our summers. It is saddening to me and many others that these things will be darkened by the current conditions. But I say let's be positive and look at the bright side.
Speaking of looking at the Bright side have you seen the Sandy Gervais "On the Bright side Line"
Such great Bright Fabrics... Ohhhh wouldn't this look good as the Bargello in the class that Dana Faber is teaching on May 30th from 9 - 3 pm, the cost of the Class is $20. Sign up by calling the shop or following this link https://www.oldalleyquiltshop.com/our-classes.htm
We have the Layer Cakes (needed for the Bargello) some of the fabrics in yardage, the pattern designed for the fabrics and the wideBacks. These 108' widebacks are beautiful and versatile and have a great message and come in grey or white. We also have a nice selection of her "Texture" basics line.

During these times of isolation we have had to up our game a little in electronic age to stay in touch with you beautiful people. We are still learning. Lori and I have both been doing Facebook Live Show and Tells with specials ever Wed/Fri. So if you have not liked our page yet please do, then you can follow all this fun sales etc. Check out the special for this week below.
The Old Alley Gang and I did our First Facebook Live event this last Wednesday and it went fantastic. It was not with out its hiccups but we will get better. We filled 31 orders in 24 hours I am pooped. We will be doing another Facebook Live Clearance Event on Monday May 10th, during this live broadcast we will be going through the other 70 bolts I have placed on Clearance, the ones left are $7/yard. If I have time I will bring out what was left from this last Wednesday, in case you missed it. We will try to give you approximate yardages so you know this time.
We do fill these orders First Come First Serve so however the land on our timeline. We also had a little confusion on how to place the order, it is easier for us to track if all orders are comments on the event. So orders are filled from the event page in order first, then if we had orders come via email or messenger we filled those next. Sorry for an confusion we will try to be better. I will through in a few surprises this next wee as well so don't miss it.
Another new Live Event we will be doing at 12:00 pm Monday May 4th. A Live unboxing of two new collections that came in this should be fun. We are waiting to share the new beautiful fabrics. They weill be on online shortly after the show and available to purchase.
