This month is full of holidays, time changes, season changes and most famous of all, my birthday!
Here's some notable notes for this month.
March 8th: Today is Commonwealth Day if you're reading this in Canada
March 14th: Daylight Savings Time Begins - Don't Forget to "Spring Forward"

March 20th: First Day of Spring! - Start planting those gardens now
March 29th: Full Moon
March 30th: First Day of Passover
And all month long is a little thing we like to call MARCH MADNESS!! All Basketball all the time!
(Side note - March 12th: My Birthday, I accept cold hard cash and shoes!)

One of the lesser known holidays this month is National Quilting Day. Started in 1991 by the National Quilting Association, March 20th is the date for this years National Quilting Day. Grab your old scraps of fabric or start fresh with some of our craft fabrics. Either way, its high time to start quilting!

You don't have to be a pro to make a great looking quilt. We even have fabrics that are already quilted for you! Our Build-A-Quilt fabrics are pre-made quilted fabric panels which give you a custom look without the custom effort (just like the one shown here). For downloadable patterns for every skill type follow this link: The National Quilting Association can get you started with lots of great ideas and how-tos.

And don't forget, always has you covered no matter what holiday you are celebrating. Our Holiday page offers gift ideas, fabrics, table settings and more. We also have all your favorite college basketball fabrics no matter who you root for. Check us out for new products, added daily!
