Can you believe it’s already the end of February!  It sure is beginning to look and feel like spring is truly on the way, the sunshine we’ve been getting has been wonderful!

Poppin’s turned 18 this past December, and we are so pleased that we are able to help you in your fabric journey!  One of our most favourite things is to see what you have done with your ideas – show & tell is truly the best.

It’s been a  strange few years, hasn’t it….  covid, the heat dome, fires, flooding – lots of challenges we’ve had to deal with.  I am always amazed at how resilient and adaptable all of you are – in dealing with whatever gets thrown our way.

Public Health regulations/recommendations are fluid.  We aim to keep both you and us healthy and safe while visiting us in the shop.  For those of you not comfortable coming into the shop, we offer curbside delivery or we can mail out your items.  If you are not from the area, and can’t come in to visit – we can help you “virtually” too!  Call, email, or Facebook message us – we are happy to help!

And now – something fun is coming up!!!   Tuesday, March 1st is MARDI GRAS!  Also known as FAT Tuesday! To celebrate – ALL FAT Quarters and FAT Eighths will be 20% off – one day only.

Contrary to popular belief, we DO sell batting!

Did you know that we carry a dozen different types of batting? Hobb’s is our major brand, and we have their Heirloom 80-20 cotton-poly, fusible 80-20 cotton-poly, Black 80-20 cotton-poly, Natural Cotton with Scrim; and their Tuscany Bleached Cotton, Washable Wool and 100% Polyester. These battings start at 96 inches wide, and go up to 120 inches wide.

In addition, we carry Hobb’s Thermore Ultra Thin poly (45 inches wide), 124 inch wide Arctic Cotton’s 50-50 Bamboo-Cotton blend, and a number of Pellon batting products, including Rayon, Thermolam Plus, Fusible Fleece and Thermolam Plus Fusible batting. Great prices too!

We keep most of them in our Batt Cave – so ask to check them out next time you are here.

Seasonal Challenge

We are now many, many seasons in with our Challenge. This has been a great way to use some of our stash fabrics up, and get some old projects completed!

If you would like to join in just ask us how; we will fill you in on the guidelines (such as they are). Register your intent with us, and we will add your name to our Accountability Board!

Our reveal days are the spring and fall equinoxes, and the summer and winter solstices – the dates are listed on our Calendar. Our next reveal date is March 22, 2022.
