Linky Tuesday

Got the sad news this morning that Bee Square Fabrics will be closing its doors on July 15. It’s a big loss to the sewing community but thankfully it’s due to relatively happy circumstances. All her fabrics are 50% off with coupon code goodbye50off. Read the fine print here. Thanks for everything, Diane, and happy trails! We all hope you’ll come back!
