Hello all:

With Thanksgiving just 27 days away. Are you ready for the slew of family, friends and unexpected quest to arrive?

Have you taken a look around at your home, do your dining room chairs need a pick me up, would a few new throw pillows liven up a tired sofa? How about a custom set of insulated draperies to warm up a cool guest room? Ok, well maybe you don't want to make it too comfortable, so your guest will not out stay their welcome but, insulated draperies can also help in the energy efficiency of your home, so don't do it for them. Do it for you!

Then may I suggest you stop in for a quick fix. We are taking in dining room chair seats for reupholstery, with a quick turn around time. Our work room is available to make pillows. Note on pillows; make a few 30x30 and you can throw them the floor, for the kids to sit on, while the adults enjoy lounging on the sofa with a nice warm drink, a libations or some cookies and milk after a beautiful meal, nostalgic conversations, and a copius number of reasons to be THANKFUL. The perfect way to watch some football.

We have engourged our stock with hundreds of new items, just in time for us to engourge ourselves and look forward to sharing with you some of the ways you can get your home ready for Thanksgiving.

We wish each of you, your families and dearest friends, things to be grateful for, from the smallest to the largest life has to hold.

One of our customers wanted to show us what she had done with fabric she purchased from us and to tell us what she thinks of us.

Quoted from e-mail received from customer:

"Hello Laura, Of course, go ahead and add the photo to your blog! All of you are such pros and you know your every changing stock so well that it is always a joy and a pleasure to shop for fabric at Chintz and Prints. I am happy to recommend your business at any time! Thank you! Cheers, Adrienne

Thank you Adrienne for the kind words and for allowing us to share your photo. It is always fun to see what our fabrics become and how they look in your space. We just love the green peeking through the skirt. It gives your chair a custom look.

We invite all of our customers to share their "new" rooms.
