As I’ve said before, I feel like a thousand times, I am a big fan of Anna Maria Horner’s designs. I love her large scale prints. These prints are on a light-medium weight cotton linen blend and are gorgeous. I’m thinking new living room curtains, or a really amazing quilt back. The colors are astounding. These bolts need to be opened up for sure, so you can really take in the design.
Lotta Jansdotter’s newest group, Glimma just arrived. We have both medium weight cotton prints and canvas (the stack off to the right in the back). She’s done it again, with clean, modern, easy to use designs. Some new totes for going to the pool this summer just may be in order!
Pretty, pretty indigo and white from Dear Stella’s Ravena line. Crisp, clean, feels like spring. Another group just in from DS is Va Bene! Fun Italian images: maps, scooters and tomatoes.
Sweet new organic cotton prints from Birch are here—Yay Day! Animals parading, confetti dots, soft, but not too muted of colors. I particularly like the garland around the doe’s neck. Very sweet.
And some amazing color combos from Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably. Enjoy!
Once again, on the last Saturday of the month, Bolt will be donating a portion of the days proceeds to a worthy local non-profit. This month, we are thrilled to be partnering with Children’s Healing Art Project. If you aren’t familiar with the amazing work they do, CHAP’s mission is to bring the healing power of art to children and families in crisis. At CHAP children are known for their creativity and ingenuity- not by their disease, diagnosis or disability.
Each week, CHAP’s teaching artists lead over forty hours of art adventures for children and their families at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Knight Cancer Institute, OHSU Pediatric Neurosurgery Clinic and Schnitzer Diabetes Center. CHAP’s in-hospital programs feature a vast array of art supplies and projects to spark each child’s imagination. They also have an out-of hospital program called Art Club, held at CHAP’s headquarters in Southeast Portland. Art Club offers a fun and engaging art experience for children with medical challenges outside of the hospital, giving them a chance to express themselves through creativity. Whether it’s a beading project, animation, puppet-making, collage, or simply drawing with a black marker in a sketch book, CHAP works to make sure each child finds their voice through the artistic process.
On Saturday, April 27th Bolt will be donating a percentage of sales to CHAP! IT’S WIN-WIN!! While you stock up on some beautiful supplies for your next project, you will be helping bring the healing power of art to more kids!
To learn how to get involved, volunteer, or donate directly to CHAP, contact them at email@example.com, or call 503-243-5294.
