Based on one of their customer comments, Fat Quarter Shop has come up with their new favorite challenge: The Sew Down! They are inviting you to put your thread to the test. Start with a new spool or cone of Aurifil thread on February 1 and see how far your thread goes! The challenge ends on March 31, 2020.
The idea is to post photos of your spool at the beginning and end of the challenge to show us just how far your spool will go. Of course progress photos are encouraged as well! We want to check out all the fun you have and would love to see the projects you’re making. How many hours of sewing fun will you get from just one cone or spool?
Check out the hashtag #FQSSewDown on Instagram and Facebook for all the details!

2020 GRUNGE CONTEST
Here's what you need to know.
Start Date. The 2020 Grunge Contest officially starts on Saturday, February 1.
Deadline. Shops will be displaying entries and having their voting process starting September 1. But check with your favorite quilt shop to be sure on the dates and process!
Fabrics. The quilt top and back must be made with Moda Grunge brand fabrics - and only Moda Grunge brand fabrics. The collections include Grunge, Grunge Hits the Spot, Grunge Metallic Hits the Spot, Grunge Seeing Stars, Grunge Metallics Seeing Stars, Grunge Metallics and Glitter Grunge.
Type of Project. Any type of construction may be used to make the quilt - piecing and appliqué, embroidery, hand or machine quilting. But the work must be original - commercial patterns or books may not be used.
Size. The finished size of the quilt must not exceed 240" around. E.g., a 60" x 60" quilt will be 240" total size. A 60" x 70" quilt will be too big at 260" total size.
Finished Quilts Only. Quilts must be quilted and bound to be considered in the final judging. Since shops will be submitting photos of the quilts, the quilt must be completed when the shop makes their choices and takes the picture.
Quilt Label. The quilt must be labeled, and it must include the Maker's name, the Quilter's name - if different, the city and contact information of the Maker.
Limit on Entries? There is no limit to the number of quilts you can enter at your quilt shop. But each shop can submit only one quilt to Moda as their entry for the 2020 Grunge Contest.
If you are working on a 2020 Grunge quilt, we are offering 15% off all grunge fabric. We have over 100 bolts and more on its way.
Did you know if we don't have what you are looking for in stock, we would be happy to special order it? Have you found an item at a lower price? Please give us the opportunity to price match/beat. #shop local
