Why we tear.

Hello, it's Lucy here!
I get a lot of e-mails asking us about our block of the month, and stash clubs. People signing up, questions about fabric and what not. I also get a lot of e-mails from customers all around the world asking why we tear our fabrics.

Fabrics rips straight on the grain, every time! We know it leaves a frayed edge and yucky little threads but trust me, you want us to tear it. We see so many bolts where the fabric is rolled on crooked, and if we were to cut you get would a very warped, crooked piece of fabric. Plus, as skilled as we all are at cutting there's no guarantee we will cut straight every time. No matter how hard we try!
We always make sure we give you the correct amount of fabric for your projects even once the torn edge is sliced away.

The Gypsy Wife block of the month is now full! We won't be cutting any more programs but we will be developing this quilt into a pattern. Best to join our mail list if you wish to know when new patterns are released.

I still have places in Bring Me Flowers Round 2 by Jen Kingwell.
And don't forget you can join Stash Club at any time!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Thats really handy info - I think I will start tearing. I did the Gypsy Wife BOM last year and the tearing wasn't a problem at all. (still finishing it....)

I really appreciate it when a seller tears the fabric, it's so much more accurate than cutting.
