Black Friday Sale!

Hi friends! How was your Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving falls in October here in Canada, so I didn’t get to eat any turkey or stuffing yesterday (sad!). But I still love seeing all the delicious food and warm fuzzies happening on instagram. This year it felt extra festive because it also happened to be my birthday yesterday! I’m 28… when did that happen?

So it’s time for our big Black Friday sale! Here are the details…

Get 25% OFF ALL REGULAR PRICED FABRICS

Get an extra 15% OFF ALL SALE FABRICS

That’s not all! We have a very limited quantity of BRA KITS available, and they’re 10% OFF!

No code is required – the discounts will be applied automatically at checkout. Easy peasy!

The sale starts right now and ends on Sunday, November 27th at 11:59pm PST.

Want to see some of the new fabrics that we’ve added to the shop recently? There is so much good stuff. They’re all included in the 25% off sale! Click the image and it will take you to the product page.

 

Happy shopping you guys!

Local Event this Sunday!

Hi friends! This Sunday I’m taking Blackbird on the road for the first time! I’m so excited to have a booth at the vendor market for the ASDP annual conference. I’ll be there with fabrics, bra kits, and sewing patterns. The vendor market is open to the public and admission is free. Even if you aren’t attending the conference, you can come to the market tomorrow. Here are the details:

Date: Sunday, October 23rd 2016
Time: 12:00pm – 6:00pm
Place: Westin Wall Center in Richmond, BC

The Association of Sewing and Design Professionals has hundreds of members across Canada and the US. Every year, the members of the ASDP come together for a conference. This year, for the first time, it’s in Canada!

Read all about the ASDP here, and visit the event facebook page for the vendor market here (some great companies will be selling at the market, including Thread Theory, yay!).

If you’re local, come and say hi! I’d love to meet you. If not, feel free to follow along on instagram. It’s going to be a fun day!

Anniversary Sale

anniversary-sale

The end of September marks the beginning of fall, and for me, it also marks a really special anniversary. On September 24th, 2014, I officially launched Blackbird Fabrics. I can hardly believe I’ve been running this business for two years. Oh, how time flies! I’m proud of what I’ve built and really looking forward to all of the exciting things I have planned for the coming year. I hope that I can say that every year on the anniversary of my business.

Enough about that for now, the important bit is that it’s time for an anniversary sale! I had a launch sale, and a sale on my first anniversary last year, so I figure I might as well make it a tradition. Here’s what I’m doing this year:

From now through Sunday…

Spend over $50 to get 15% off

Spend over $100 to get 20% off

Spend over $150 to get 25% off

PLUS! If you spend over $200 after your discount has been applied, you’ll get free standard shipping worldwide

Everything is on sale and there is no discount code required, so go forth and shop now!

I can’t sign off without thanking you, my wonderful customers, for your unending support, encouragement, and just plain awesomeness. The fact that I get to engage with such a wonderful group of people every day makes me very, very happy.  I’m proud to be a part of the sewing community, you are a cool bunch!

Coming Soon: Monthly Remnants Sale!

Remnants-Sale-1

Hi fabric lovers! Consider this a heads up…

Over the past couple of years, I’ve done a half dozen remnant sales, and each time the fabrics sell out so quickly!

Remnants are the small-ish pieces of fabric that I’m often left with at the end of a roll. Once in a while I’ll also get the chance to buy remnants from local designers, which is even more exciting, because they’ll be fabrics you’ve never seen before in the shop. I sell these pieces at 25-50% off retail price, so there are always some awesome deals to be had!

So here’s something exciting: I’m going to make this a monthly thing! On the first Friday of every month, I’ll send out a newsletter to let you know the remnants are in the shop. They sell quickly, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to get first dibs.

The next sale is happening this Friday! In the meantime, scroll down for a look at some of the remnants we’ve had in the past. So much good stuff!

P.S. I have some excellent news since my last post about the Canada Post strike. Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers have reached an agreement, and there is no longer the possibility of a work disruption or strike. We are now shipping with the confidence that there will be no delays. (Hooray!)

Fabric Sale Alert: 20% Off All Solids

Happy Friday fabric lovers! Just popping in for a quick FYI: we’re running a fabric sale in the shop now through Sunday: 20% off all solid fabrics! Use the code BASICS20 at checkout.

Basics_Newsletter-1

Solids sometimes get overlooked for all the shiny, colourful stuff, no? But if there’s one thing I’ve learned through my years sewing, it’s not to forgot to sew up some basics once in while. Stock up on solids and set yourself up to sew some wardrobe staples throughout the winter!

One more thing: we’ve added extra categories to the shop to help you find what you’re looking for. You can now view all of our solids in one place, as well as prints, knits, and wovens.

Have a great weekend & enjoy the fabric sale!
