Just In: Seven Islands, knits, voile, Cloud 9...

by Gina

First off, thank you to all of you who made it out for our 9th anniversary sale! We truly appreciate your continued support through the years. It’s been an honor to be able to help with your projects, and all the fun, provocative and endearing conversations had along the way have been a delight. Thank you.

Let’s get started with the new arrivals, shall we?

Sometimes fabric comes in that seriously woos me. It actually takes my breath away when I gaze upon it. You know the feeling. The latest order from Seven Islands (from Japan) did just that. It is such a lovely assortment of different types of fabric, as well as designs. Barkcloth, double gauze, twill, canvas, rayon. Here they are:

I can not resist a good flamingo print.Cosmic Convoy from Cloud 9 organic cottons, by Michele Brummer EverettUtopia by Frances Newcombe for Art Gallery.

We hope you have a safe and happy Halloween. Yes, we have felt and tulle! (We get that question a lot these days leading up to the costumed festivities.) And, we will participating in Trick or Treat Alberta Street, so come on by!

Just In: knits, organic cottons, books and more!

by Gina

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!

 

Just (about) in...Solids Sale!

by Gina

A little bit ago we let you know we were transitioning over to a new brand of solids, to the American Made Brand. We are thrilled that the entire color range (minus the 8 or so that we’ve already received) are on their way to us! So, it’s time to mark down the Moda Bella solids we have on hand. All Bella solids will be 30% off until it all finds a new home. Come and get some, and prepare to welcome the U.S. made from start to finish, new solids we’ll have!

And, the latest goodies that have arrived in the past week:

From top to bottom: Cheery, fun colors from Amy Butler’s latest group “Glow.” Linen blends from Robert Kaufman (excellent for all sorts of apparel projects) and a couple more silky soft cotton voile prints from Westminster. And, we’re fully stocked with dish toweling—easy peasy table runner for your next garden harvest dinner party!

See you soon.
