Entries in Anna Maria Horner (9)

Just in: Westminster extravaganza! Dear Stella pin chevron

by Gina

Westminster Fibers, home to designers such as Anna Maria Horner, Joel Dewberry, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, Martha Negley, to name just a few of the many, has come out with this new grouping of easy-to-use prints, called “True Colors.”  So far, there are collections by a handful of designers, including Anna Maria Horner and Joel Dewberry.  I am loving having Joel D’s faux bois back in stock.  The colors are fantastic.  And, somehow these, along with pieces from AMH’s new line, “Dowry,” and the new V&A line, “Vintage Florals,” all play so nicely together.

We are trying something new and have a few complete fat quarter packs from Westminster available.  That way, you can have a little of each design in a collection!  Great for an instant quilt project.  The current selection includes “True Colors” lines from Joel D and Anna Maria H, and the complete “Bridgette Lane” line by Valori Wells and “Dowry” by Anna Maria Horner.

Bold graphics, rich colors from the new “Sierra” line from Robert Kaufman, by Bren Talavera.  We also picked up the middle print in a coated cotton, cute!

And, some fresh colors of a welcomed new take on the chevron, from Dear Stella.

Don’t forget, our Organization of the Month Day is November 23rd, with the donation going to the Oregon Food Bank.  Please help us make it a great donation!



Just In: Portland's own Erin McMorris....

by Gina, photos by Heather

These fabulous new prints are part of Portlander Erin McMorris’s latest group, Astrid. Fun, fun!

Also in this week are new Art Gallery prints, from Bonnie Christine’s line Reminisce and a few “old favs” from Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner.  I just couldn’t resist bringing back the “Coriander” print from Amy B’s Belle line and the stacked books print from her modified line, Hand Drawn Garden.

We will be closed tomorrow, July 4th.  Have a wonderful holiday and we’ll see you soon!

Embroidery Inspiration

By April

It’s nice to have an embroidery project in the works, it travels well and is a true way to sit and enjoy the art of making, one stitch at a time.

This is a vintage piece that I cherish and it inspires me. This is from a flour sack tea towel made into an apron. Grab a flour sack tea towel next time you are in the shop they make a great pallet for embroidery.

We carry this pattern from Anna Maria Horner.  It includes directions on how to stitch all sorts of styles of embroidery stitches.  I can imagine a great monogrammed gift from this lovely pattern.

Perle Balls of Floss are such a treat. No need to separate strands and great for projects that require lots of one color. 

I recently took a camping trip here in Oregon, the river we camped on was just full of newts.  They are so cute!

Sassy Spurs and Penguin and fish patterns shown above.  We have a few other state patterns in stock from Sassy Spurs: California and Idaho. Each state pattern includes the outline of the state, it’s capitol, official bird, flower and a landmark of significance.  You can choose to make the pattern as shown or pick and choose from the graphics.  We carry Penguin and fish alphabet animal patterns from A to Z.  These were just a few of my favorites.

Stock up on Floss for your next project.  Road trip, long plane ride or lazy days of summer with the kids…. embroidery is a great way to go.
