Just In: Anna Maria Horner, tailoring supplies and yarn dyes

by Gina

It’s quite a variety of things in this week’s “Just In.” We are now carrying tailor hams and seam rolls! As we start gearing up for holiday gift making and giving, we are excited to be able to offer a wide range of gifts for both the maker and the receiver. Talk to us about your ideas or questions, we’re ready to help!

And, the latest fabric arrivals:Beautiful Asia-inspired “Sakura” from Makower Fresh new yard dyes from Robert Kaufmanfun/ny novelties from Timeless TreasuresOh, the gorgeous designs and colors of Anna Maria Horner’s latest, “Honor Roll.”More from Honor Roll.

Just In: Anna Maria Horner, Joel Dewberry, Cloud 9....staff picks!

by Gina

These fabulous new pieces from Anna Maria Horner’s “Pretty Potent” line arrived. There’s rayon, cotton voile, flannel and cotton knit.

I absolutely love this eucalyptus print, in all its forms. I can see it being a gorgeous quilt back, a lovely dress (in the rayon version up top), or I used the quilting cotton print inside some glass doors on my dining room hutch. Pretty, pretty.

And look how lovely Joel Dewberry’s newest prints look with the other “Pretty Potent” prints. Loving that light blue.

Kaffe Fassett’s new fun house print and Cloud 9’s latest, “Arcadia.”

This is a fun new little addition to the store’s displays: staff picks! Be on the look out next time you’re in for who loves what, then feel free to ask them why they chose what they chose. I have yet to be able to decide on my favorite thing. And, as cheesy as it may sound, really the staff at Bolt are my favorite. Day in and day out, they provide their expertise, inspiration and creativity. I am extremely grateful for their dedication to Bolt and our customers.

Happy summer sewing!

 

Just In: Anna Maria Horner does it again

by Gina

I’m a big, huge really, fan of Anna Maria Horner. I’ve enjoyed most pieces she’s created over the years and have a whole lot of her things adorning my house and hanging out in my stash. This new group from her latest line, “Pretty Potent,” is no exception. Her colors glow, her scale is bold, and the designs themselves vary widely within a line. All things I adore. Hope you do too!

Stay tuned for apparel goods from this collection coming soon.

New trim! Well, the cherry trim is brand spankin’ new, the other two just look so nice with it, I couldn’t resist putting them in the picture.

Other new things around the store:

  • Fabulous children’s and women’s clothing patterns from Green Bee (the great folks that brought us this bag)
  • A lovely selection of sashiko sampler patterns—13” squares with the stitch pattern printed on. A must have for those of us who like to keep busy while out and about in the summer months.
  • Karen Kay Buckley’s “Perfect Pins.” These really are perfect. They are super thin and sharp, so they ease on into your fabric, smooth like soft butter on warm French toast. I know, that’s totally over the top, but I really am quite smitten with these pins.
  • Recycled poly thread cabinet! We’re pretty darn excited to offer a wider range of poly colors, and now on small spools too, and recycled no less! Same great Gutermann quality.

Don’t forget to check out the sure-to-be-moving show “Listen to your Mother” at the Alberta Rose Theatre on Sunday!

See you soon.
