    fabric catalog

    I got 2 catalogs today, one from Keepsake Quilting and the other from Hancock's of Paducah. I had to put them both away. I want one of everything in them. Hancock's is full of beautiful batiks and all colors, from white to black and everything in-between. Keepsake as usual is full of beautiful kits. I'm trying not to buy any fabric for awhile, but it is a loosing battle. Did anyone else get their catalogs yet? They are off to the side, but I can hear a little voice calling my name. I need to move them further away!!!

    I have actually saved so many of their catologs. So much inspiration in each one! I find more idea's from catalogs than I do magazines. When they arrive its hard not to sit down immediately and pour through each page.

    Aren't those reds fabulous? And red's not high on my color list.

    we got the keepsake quilting catalogue today. what we do is go through it once then go through a little more slowly the second time. that is when we cut out everything we like. then we put it in a "glue" book...or a kind of blank book like a journal or composition book. that way, we can look at the ones we like often. sometimes, we can even make our own patterns from the pictures. all it requires is graph paper! (someimes, we put the description with the picture just in case we need to contact the company for it. it might not be in the catalogue, but it might still be available.) my catalogue is already recycled! the cut-outs don't take up too much space either.

    Keepsake is too expensive for me. But I do chart out some of the quilt kits to save----------along with the pic from the catalog.

    I do the same as the last two members...enjoy the catalog and clip out the ones that catch my attention to try later on my own. I rarely order fabrics from the catalogs since there are at least four quilt stores within easy driving distance. If I do order online, it is usually from eQuilter when there is a sale and sometimes shipping is free. If the shipping is not free, I can click the option to pick up my order at the warehouse located in Boulder. When that happens, we combine it with a trip to a few nearby places. When we go see my son in another state, we stop at quilt stores along the way. There are garage sales and thrift stores, too,

    I got my Connecting Threads catalog 2 days ago. I am SO IN LOVE with the Rhapsody in Red line. I've drooled over it at least 10 times so far. I just need to figure out what pattern I want to use it with. But a quilt from that line is definitely in my near future.

    I got the Keepsake catalog yesterday, and like others have posted I read it cover to cover to look at different patterns and color combinations. Many many years ago I bought some of their scrap bags, but their prices are now so high that I haven't purchased anything from them in at least 15 years.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I just spent around $40 plus at two of my LQSs for fabric to finish up two projects. Then I get Nancy's Notion's catalog and there is a kit for $40 that I fell in love with. I also had to hide the catalog... Maybe next month!

    The only thing I MIGHT buy from any of the catalogs is either a template or book, if the price, and or s/h is better than I can get on line....or at a real store...otherwise, I look thru and toss it.......

    I received Keepsake and CT. I loved the reds in CT too. CT's kits are reasonably priced, and I was tempted by some of them, especially the table runner in red. I worry about ordering kits in fear of being short of fabric because of making mistakes...for which I'm famous!

    I love to collect the Hancocks of Paducah because of all the fabrics with "labels" on them. I saw a suggestion long ago about collecting them for fabric history (in case I need something). I also keep the KQ catalogs (at least for awhile), not so much on the CT catalogs.

    i joined the fabric moratorium so i am being as good as possible, but i did order books from ct ( yes, i love the reds!). the only real temptation is blue and white (or cream, or palest yellow). so far i have not seen what i'm looking for. i did buy some kaffe fassett strips from craftsy (hanging my head in shame). but hancock's never sends me their catalog and i've requested it repeatedly. just as well since now i look, dream, and toss it away.
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.
