Oliver + S is sponsoring Project 95–an industry-wide initiative that highlights the value of independent retailers. When you shop at independent quilt and fabric stores, you support small businesses (often in your community) that cater specifically to your needs.
Oliver + S only sells its patterns through independent shops and websites, and we believe that these independents are worth supporting. In addition to providing you with access to the best products available (many of which are not carried in chain stores), your independent retailer provides classes, community, and other support for sewing enthusiasts like you. Purchasing from these shops helps ensure that high-quality products will remain available to you and that the community these shops build will remain intact.
So please join us in this worthy cause. Shop independent. And voice your support for the movement by following the activities of Project 95 on its website, by becoming a fan on Facebook, and by keeping up with Project 95 on Twitter.
