in-store clearance sale

friday january 6th through sunday january 8th

Resolve to get a great deal in 2017!!! Out with the old and in with the new! In order to make room for all the fabulous new collections we'll be receiving here at Alewives Fabrics in 2017, we're taking hundreds of our fabrics downstairs to the classroom and marking them all at 40% off. These are all first quality fabrics! They've just been around a bit too long for our liking or the bolt is getting too skinny to remain on our shelves. This is a great chance to score a backing fabric or make an entire quilt on the cheap. In addition to clearance fabrics by the yard, we'll also have other surprises downstairs at 40% off, we'll be bulking up our regular clearance section upstairs, we'll have lots of new items out on the floor and we'll be handing out copies of our Winter 2017 class list. We'll even be serving refreshments so you can keep up your strength while you shop! What better way to start the new year than with amazing deals on gorgeous fabrics?!? We can't wait to see you there!
