Modified Style and Other Reasons to Get Out the Door

Bolt is proud to among the sponsors at this Sunday's Modified Style Fashion Fundraiser. This year's beneficiaries are CHAP (Children's Healing Art Project), Sisters of the Road, and Out to Pasture Animal Sanctuary. It's going to be a great time that benefits some great organizations. Tickets and info here.


While you're out on the town, stop by and peep the four new bolts of Liberty Tana Lawn!


We are really excited about these prints from Red Rooster. The art of Katagami, or Japanese paper stenciling, has been exquisitely reproduced for this quilt weight range.


Bring on the cute! Urban Chicks has come up with a fresh range for the kiddos called Hullabaloo (for Moda). I'm especially fond of the yellow tulips (very scandinavian) and the presence of both a camels and llamas on the novelty print. Bolts of the new MoMo line are on the shelves, as well as a few of the new Sherbet Pip prints. Happy May Day weekend, all!

Flickr Inspiration and a TWO Giveaways

If you have a minute, go ahead and upload your photos of finished Bolt projects to our Flickr Group! This is a super cute Oliver+S Jumprope dress from Mamatsopj (for details, click on the picture):

Oliver + S Jumprope Dress

Kristin made her first bed size quilt with fabric from Bolt-- congratulations!! It looks fantastic.

There is lots of great inspiration in the group, including more previews (by way of samples) of Figgy's new pattern line that is being released next month at Quilt Market.


What's that? A Giveaway? Of course. We've got one more Chinook Book left for a local reader (so indicate if you are one) and a charm pack of the entire line of Oliver+S City Weekend. Comment here, we'll pick a winner for each (US addresses, please) on Saturday, May 1st. What are you working on these days? Are you feeling the pull away from your sewing machine and into the garden? Let us know.


Oliver+S Patterns and Some Blue and Reds


We have all three new patterns from Oliver+S in stock: The Family Reunion Dress, The Seashore Sundress and the Class Picnic Blouse and Shorts.

There are bits of blues and reds (and their complementary counterparts) making their way through receiving this week.




The photos from top to bottom are from Moda, Windham Fabrics and Free Spirit.


These are brand new voiles (and one striped seer sucker) in the apparel bins. The red one is organic and is unbelievably soft. That middle stripe is going to be a Spring favourite for sure.
