Just in: Upholstery Fabrics, Water Resistant Canvas, Sew Caroline, + More!

by Adrianna

This week we restocked some of our much loved heavy weight and upholstery fabrics. A great pairing that has been a hit with customers and employees is Otter Wax + Water resistant army duck canvas. We replenished our stock, and have included more neutral colors. To jazz up your interior decorating, check out our new stock of upholstery fabrics, all brightly colored and sure to keep away those winter blues! We are also glad to introduce a new pattern line to the store; Sew Caroline! These patterns are simple and sweet, and we know you will enjoy them. Also peep the new Sewaholic patterns! I’m all about a nice buttonup, and they came out with not one, but two! Plus a great, easy skirt pattern. Some incredible quilting weight cottons, new to the store, are a collection of soothing prints handmade in Bali! Last but not least, Alexander Henry doesn’t quit with some gorgeous new Calaveras prints. Besides all these great new pieces we have an announcement….

Just In: Alison Glass batiks, rayon, voile and our holiday schedule

by Gina

There’s always this feeling of flying to the finish line in the month of December. We’ve been seeing a lot of you doing some not-quite-last-minute crafting and gift choosing. We have lots to choose from and are full of ideas and help! We will have a few days off around here coming up soon. We’ll be closed from Monday, December 22nd through December 25th. We’ll reopen on Friday the 26th. We’ll be closed for New Years and inventory on January 1st and 2nd, back to our regular schedule January 3rd.

Ok, on to the latest arrivals. I think the newest arrival I’m most excited about is the Alison Glass batik group. Its organic deisgn and soft hand make this collection impossible to pass by.
