She's been declining into dementia for a few years now, with a dramatic change in the last year. It's heartbreaking to watch someone you love slowly lose themselves and become dependent on those around her for just about everything.

More Fabric Please!

I'm very happy to welcome Fabric Please! as a new sponsor for Quilt Matters. Fabric Please! is a Canadian online fabric store based in New Dundee, Ontario and owned by Rita Ferber.

Rita opened her online shop in February 2014 and has been loving every second of it. She has a great site, where you can find products by designer, fabric type (she carries apparel fabric!), theme, notions and manufacturers, etc. Fabric Please! carries a sweet collection of precuts, Aurifil thread (yay!) and has a great sale section.

Did you know that Fabric Please! has the wholeGlowing Hearts fabric line? Yes ma'am! Look at those colours...

Designed by fellow Canadian Grace Noël, this line was commissioned by Trendex (Canadian supplier of Moda products) to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary next year. Get it while it lasts 'cause it won't last long!

So welcome Fabric Please! and thank you for becoming a sponsor!

You'll be hearing more about this line and Fabric Please! in a few weeks…
