I had to share with you a screenshot I took of Fabrics N Quilts webpage when I opened it up for the first time. Isn’t it just beautiful. And I’m a HUGE fan of the spool of thread symbol and I just love how she uses it throughout her page!
After I finished goggling over the beautiful web page design it was time to do some shopping. The navigation is fast and easy and it is broken into sections – designer, brand, collection, style and color! Love this! I’m always looking for random things and now I’ll be able to choose which way is going to work best for my particular need at the moment.
Oooh! The Style search just helped me just discover these beautiful crackle solids! How great!? And how have I not seen these before!?
Before I move into bullet pointing all the great features this new site offers I need to high light probably my new favorite thing ever – Preview your fabrics in blocks BEFORE you buy!
Here’s how it works – put fabric in your cart. (We can all do that right!?) Visit your cart and click the button at the top of the cart that says “Preview Fabric in Block”. The screen shot shown above will come into view. You can pick which block you’d like to play around with and then you simply move your fabrics into the middle row and the block on the screen updates. It’s truly amazing, quick, and easy to use. I’m sure I’ll be using it all the time now!
Okay – and now so I don’t make you wait too much longer to find out about the giveaway I’m moving to bullet points.
