    Christmas fabric??

    Ladies-
    Am I too late to purchase Christmas fabric? I want to make a tree skirt. I went to a couple of LQS yesterday and didn't find what I'm looking for.

    In my dreams I'd like to find a collection that has Christmas red, green and white. What I found yesterday was cranberries, grays, golds. Am I out of luck?

    Do you have a collection that you love that has those colors (red, green, white--and even some gold) in it? Please share!

    TIA

    Season's greetings by Moda has holly and poinsettias. It's green, red and light blues. There are tonals and medium and large prints. I'm working on a tree skirt using it now. The large bright red with the holly is my favorite.

    I don't think you are too late, maybe a little early? It depends on the Christmas colours coming out this year though. You may need to go on line for older collections.

    I don't get alot from the fabric at Walmarts but they have great Christmas fabric for great prices. Ours hasn't even brought out theirs yet.

    FYI Best time for holiday fabric is right after the holiday; it goes on sale super cheap

    it's never too late. You can always get great prices on past season's designs.

    The Hancock's of Paducah catalog has a lot of beautiful Christmas fabric in those colors.

    I just got my new Connecting Threads catalog last night, and they have a Christmas collection that has lots of reds and greens, but not much white. It's called "Holiday Elegance".
