Entries in African fabric (4)
Some interesting things came through the door this past week. And, some equally as welcomed basics too!
Let’s start with the basics. We’re restocked with that great hemp/ organic cotton heavy weight stripe in indigo, red and brown. You can see the indigo version used in this great looking tote by Hannah. (It’s the widest stripe.) We also just got in a super cozy collection of solid flannels:
Our inventory is typically quite colorful and contemporary. That doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a more subdue palette of William Morris reproductions:
And, some of Carolyn Friedlander’s new great group, Doe (top two prints are not part of the group):
These sweetly colored prints from Moda say Spring, for sure. Including the raindrops that usually mean spring around here:
We are very happy to get back in these gorgeous, unique, traditional African mud cloths:A shipment of trims arrived yesterday, including knit foldover trim, some super festive, sparkly ribbon and sweet, little polka dot, ruffle elastic.
Are you ready for some spring sewing? Come and see us, we’ll be sure you are!
It has been a while since we’ve had a selection of African wax prints. I was excited to bust open the box today with our latest order. I love the bright colors and bold designs. With this order we also received an African mudcloth. It’s the black/white print in the upper right of the image. It’s quite special.
Also in this past week is “Priory Square” by Katy Jones for Art Gallery. i’m loving the cyclone fence design.
More blues from Cotton + Steel:

Such bright, beautiful prints in these two batches of African and Aboriginal designs. Above are the African prints, below are the Aboriginal prints. Both groups really need to be rolled out to truly appreciate their beauty. Please do so next time you’re in, it’s always a treat to see them in all their glory!
When I was ordering these prints at Quilt Market, it was really great to get the stories of these prints, what the various symbols mean. As they are able to put these stories up on their site, I will certainly be passing them along. It was a wonderful way to order fabric.
And, from France, these smart, chic, lovely apparel patterns from Deer and Doe arrived just the other day. We’re delighted to have them.
And, what else you’ll see when you’re in next: yesterday I was opening a package of new stripey knits, some silk, double gauze….gorgeous and interesting additions to our apparel selection. And, from Cloud 9, a few prints from their Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus line. Cute, cute, and organic.
See you soon!
