    Oh DROOLIES!!! I just got my very first catalog! (Keepsake)

    Marche de Fleurs!
    Rainbow Squares!
    Cranberry Chutney!
    Blockbuster kit!
    Modern Blues! (and I'm not a fan of the blue/lavender look)
    Underground Blues!
    Juxtaposition!
    Bermuda Sunrise!
    Garden Blooms Batiks!

    OMG fainting dead away...

    And I'm only on page 17!!!

    (ok, are you kidding me? A kit (priced as insanely as they are) doesn't include backing fabric?)

    And remember, you had no intention of starting a stash....

    Another one I've fallen in love with is the Hancock's of Paducha catalog! Talk about beautiful fabrics, I can't decide where to start!

    I was able to go to Keepsakes a few years ago. It's amazing.

    Very rare will you find backing to be included in a kit.
    Got fabric?

    When the Keepsake catalog comes in I go through it front to back and back to front. What I really like is that the colors are printed very close to the actual fabric. I have never been disappointed when I ordered.

    I miss being able to jaunt up to Center Harbor to have a fabric/store fix. I love the way the store is laid out in color value rows. The book area, OMG fondle a few for me.

    I have so many of Keepsake's back issues of catalogs just for the inspiration.

    Oh DROOLIES!!!

    Perfect description of the Hancock/Paducah catalog, too. I'm still looking thru it. Got a CT but not a Keepsake catalog.

    I love receiving the KS Catalogue, but to buy anything from them is out of the question , I bought a packet of charm squares from them and was charged. $14.95 ( the old postage rate). To New Zealand which is about $18.00 in our currency. I did send them a email suggesting that it could have been sent at a cheaper rate but never got a reply, It has taught me a lesson to ask about postage before ordering.
    1000 Bolts are really good with their postage

    Keepsake's shipping rates are very clearly stated on their website...even the rates to New Zealand.

    I got to go to Keepsake Quilting a few years ago. It was wonderful. A girlfriend and I went, best road trip I ever took.As great as their catalog is, the shop is 10 times better.

    How do they get your name if you don't sign up for anything? Amazon? Google Play? Those are about the only 2 online stores I have dealt with for years. I just got a catalog without asking for one.
    I do get Nancy's Notions, but only the catalog. I don't use the web site. Almost every forum I belong to has an alias and not my real name. This site has one of my many email addys with a crazy name and not my home address.

    Here's the catalog request link: https://www.keepsakequilting.com/requestcatalog.aspx

    And while I don't know your specific shopping habits, it's not uncommon for industry companies to sell mailing lists. I gave a charitable donation to one organization, and now I get many similar industry requests for donations. I can always tell who sold me to whom because I sometimes do or don't use the +4 on my ZIP, so I know who's in kahoots with each other.

    Speaking of DROOLIES-----------------I got the first ever NANCY'S NOTIONS catalog today. Got thru the first half and put it up before getting to the fabric. So far, I've found some great wide backing fabrics!
