Needlework Supplies & Accessories
Starting September 1, 2019, the shop will not be open on Mondays. We aplogize for this, but family commitments demandmy attention on Mondays.

Summer construction has started!
Exits from I69 to 46 only allow eastbound travel for the next 75 days. 46 is 1 lane in each direction. Please plan your detour route before leaving home!

(map is NOT interactive)

The easiest routes are:

From the north on I69/IN37, take Exit 123 for College Ave/Walnut Street, it is a 2-lane/2-way highway (also known as Old 37).  Stay on this road until you get to the stop light at IN45 & IN46 (there's a McDonald's on the left just before this intersection). You will want to turn RIGHT (west) onto IN46.  This will take you through the construction that is going on at the IN46 & I69 interchange, and then on to Fancy Works.

From the south on I69/IN37, take Exit 118 for IN48/3rd Street, you will want to turn LEFT (west) at the top of the exit ramp (there are two left turn lanes, choose the right-hand one). At Curry Pike (there's a CVS on the right at this intersection), you will turn RIGHT (north) and stay on Curry Pike until it ends at IN46, then turn LEFT (west) to get to Fancy Works.

Fancy Works Fabric of the Month Club
You may have heard the news, but we are having a Fabric of the Month Club. It's fairly simple, you choose the type and count of fabric, size of cut you want, and we will pick the color(s) and ship them to you once a month!
  • Enrollment is due by April 15, 2018, the club starts May 2018. This is a one-year program that will end in April 2019.
  • Invoices will go out the first of each month starting in May 2018.  Payment is to be received by the 15th of that month. If we have not received your payment for that month by the 15th, you will not get your fabric for that month.
  • Payments are to be made BEFORE the fabric ships. Shipping times will vary, sometimes it takes a couple weeks to get the fabric from the dyer. Then we will have to cut it into the requested sizes and ship it to you.
  • Payment is preferred via PayPal. If you do not have PayPal, you *must* contact the store each month to arrange payment. Fancy Works accepts Visa/MasterCard and Discover credit cards (sorry, no AmEx) as well as checks (this will delay your fabric). All prices are plus shipping (average shipping for a single cut of fabric is about US$4).

  • Your membership is good for one year, however, if you miss two (2) consecutive payments, you will be dropped from the club, and will not be able to re-enroll until the following year!
  • You may choose to drop out at any time, but you will not be able to re-enroll until the following year!

  • Prices are based on the size (cut) and type/count of fabric you choose. Sizes, types and counts of fabric available, as well as pricing , are listed below
  • You may choose up to TWO (2) different types/size of fabric. Fabric styles and counts are listed on page 2.
  • You may choose from two different color selections. Colors (brights & darks, would be good for Mirabilia or seasonal stitching) or Classic (light & neutrals, perfect for reproduction samplers), examples are shown below. Only two colors will be chosen & shipped each month. Dianna (the shop owner) and her helpers will choose one Classic and one Colors each month.
    • Example:  You may choose a 14ct Aida fat 1/4 in Colors *AND* a 32ct Belfast Linen fat 1/2 in Classic.  You can have both choices be Aida if you wish, or linen, or both be Colors, or both be Classic. 
    • You do not have to choose two – if you only want one (1) cut of fabric per month, pick only one!
  • Once a selection has been made, it is to remain that way for the duration of your membership, or the end of the year cycle (you may change your selection if you renew the membership the following year).
