Hello SLH Followers,
On Monday November 11th, we'll be in our new store, open and ready for your business! All classes on and after November 11th will be in our new store on 2375 East 63rd Avenue.
Our Inventory Reduction Sale is still on and getting better all the time! New fabrics are still being added and with 40% off, 50% if you finish the bolt, we're clearing out our old inventory and it benefits you!
If you've been in the store this week, you may have noticed we've been moving some things around again! Our front counter is already at our new store so we've borrowed a cutting table for a front counter.
Don't forget to click over to our blog for pictures of the new store!

ALASKA FIBER FESTIVAL QUILT CHALLENGE 2014
THREE BY FOUR
A Group Quilt Challenge
ALASKA FIBER FESTIVAL is sponsoring a group quilt challenge, and they would greatly appreciate your support. This exciting challenge involves a 12 unit grouping of 12 small quilts. Each unit consists of 12 small (12" x 12") quilts arranged in a 3 across, 4 down configuration. All quilts in the unit will focus on interpretations of a single color palette.
- Groups will consist of at least 6 quilters.
- Each unit within the unit will be 12" x 12".
- There will be 12 quilts in each unit, no two the same.
- Each group will provide its interpretations of a specific color palette which will be assigned by AFF.
- You may select either a contemporary of a traditional format.
- All quilts will be displayed in connection with the ALASKA FIBER FESTIVAL EYE OF THE BEHOLDER WEARABLE ART SHOW in April 2014 and will be offered for travel opportunities.
- Upon submission, all quilts become the property of ALASKA FIBER FESTIVAL and will be sold to benefit ALASKA FIBER FESTIVAL.
- All quilts MUST be received no later than MARCH 1, 2014.
