Greetings from Alewives Fabrics!
Alewives Fabrics is owned by the mother/daughter team of Barbara Neeson and Rhea Butler. We've been in business since 1975 and our family has owned the shop since 2004. We sell to local customers through our brick and mortar store in Midcoast Maine but we sell fabrics all over the country and the world through our web store, www.alewivesfabrics.com. We specialize in contemporary textiles: quilting cotton from the latest designers, Liberty of London Tana lawn and Linford Fleece, flannel, voile, vinyl laminate, linen/cotton blends and much more! We also carry a huge range of English Paper Piecing supplies and are a flagship store for Quince&Co. yarns.
Alewives Fabrics is active on Instagram, Twitter and on Facebook
SouleMama: Since the last time you were featured on SouleMama, in what ways has your business grown or changed? Is there anything new you'd like to tell us about?
Rhea: There has been a flurry of activity at Alewives Fabrics this fall! Our first ever Slow Sewing Cruise aboard the Schooner J&E Riggin was a huge success and we are already accepting reservations for next year's cruise. We've received a TON of new fabrics lately, including several new bolts of Loominous and Loominous 2 by Anna Maria Horner. These woven fabrics are so pretty and they'd be perfect for quilts or garments. We just love them! We've also received the entire Artisan Collection by Kaffe Fassett. This collection features quilting weight prints, batiks and woven fabrics that are all meant to be mixed and matched together. The colors are spectacular! But perhaps the biggest news of all is that Alewives Fabrics will be traveling to Savannah this coming February to vend at QuiltCon. We're so excited to be taking our show on the road and we hope to meet lots of our internet customers in person. If you're attending QuiltCon, please be sure to stop by our booth and say hello!
This weekend, Alewives Fabrics is generously offering the following gift to ONE lucky SouleMama reader:
One of our brand new Loominous/Artisan remix bundles! 20 fat quarters (100% cotton, each measures 18" by 22") from both of Anna Maria Horner's Loominous lines and also from Kaffe Fassett's Artisan Collection. Each of these fat quarters are different and each one is a woven design, meaning the pattern is woven into the fabric, rather than printed. They're so soft and the colors are luscious! Perfect for any project: whatever you make from these fabrics is going to be amazing and will never go out of style!
In addition, Alewives Fabrics would like to offer SouleMama's readers FREE SHIPPING on their online orders through Sunday, November 20th. For international customers we'll take $10 off shipping charges. To receive the discount, please enter SOULEMAMA into the promotional code field when you check out. We'll take care of the rest! In-store customers who mention the SOULEMAMA promotion at the register will receive one free fat quarter ($3 value) from our pre-cut selection of fat quarters (retail value of $3) through Sunday, November 20th.
