A fabulous selection of colors of our staple solid soy and bamboo blend knits just came in yesterday. The two on the right end (red and frost) are bamboo/organic cotton/spandex, the rest of the group is soy/organic cotton/spandex. Remember Heather’s lovely Moneta dress in the green bamboo? So pretty! With this shipment we also received more of those loved hemp / organic cotton stripes in indigo and brown. You can see Amy’s sweet napkins made from these, here.
Super plush and cozy organic cotton flannels from Cloud 9.
Bold botanical organic cotton prints from Amy Butler.
Two great books from designers we already know and love. First up, The Complete Photo Guide to Clothing Construction by Christine Haynes. The second one we just received is Tasia St. Germaine’s, The Sewtionary. You’ll recognize her projects from the popular Sewaholic line of women’s clothing patterns. Both of these books are chock full of information, photographs, and demonstrations.We’ve all been oohing and ahhing over these brand new linen blend dish towelings from Moda. Absolutely gorgeous. They are 20” wide, with a fantastic feel and a casual elegance to them.
Lastly, a sweet group of feathers, arrows and geometrics from Camelot, by Allison Cole, called “What a Gem.”
See you soon!

Ok, who doesn’t love a smiling lady yeti? And on cozy Robert Kaufman flannel no less! Time for a super soft pillow case or lounge-y PJ pants.
This is the first we’ve had of Allison Cole’s sweet designs for Camelot Fabrics. The group is called Festive Forest and is quite lovely. I love the combination of rich burgundy and dark orange with the bright turquoise and cheery yellow. A really fun group!
More gracious lovelies from V&A and Dan Bennett.
And, the super fun group, Village Green from P & B Textiles by Carolyn Gavin just arrived. I love the illustrated birds and flowers in brown with red or blue. This group works well for both a juvenile and a more grown up aesthetic.
