Entries in Art Gallery fabric (16)

Just In: Cleta, Kaufman novelty and flannels, Blend

by Gina, photos from April

April and I realized we failed to post the fantastic Robert Kaufman Mammoth flannel group. These flannels are great for apparel beyond PJs! Their texture (almost nubby, wool-like), gives them this wonderful feel and makes them perfect for a cozy Negroni. This first day of drizzle makes me feel ready for this cozy stuff…

Bike prints tend to be pretty popular around here and this funky, fun new group “Cleta” by Art Gallery provides a bit of a different spin on the basic prints we’ve had in the past. I’m particularly fond of the chain print and the weird bike trees.

A few more pieces from Kaufman and Dear Stella (I’m loving those metallic sea horses!):

And, this soft, calm group by Shell Rummel for Blend Fabrics, “Sweet Siesta.”

A few new apparel pieces, a voile and two knits from Art Gallery (we have had the grey knit before, but it ran out of here so quickly we picked it up again).

See you soon!

By April

 The button you see just to your right there “Shop Bolt”, that is a new direct link to our online store. More items are being added all the time.

As always, if you see something on the blog that you would like shipped to you just give us a call.

First up are the girls on bikes with a bird print.The next photo depicts birds and Butterflies. The third photo more birds and a neat coordinating prints all by Art Gallery.

 

Whales and Viking Ships By Alexander Henry.

A great group by Dear Stella shown below.

This Group is by Alexander Henry and the last photo is from this same group….

Stay Cool! Happy Sewing!

 

 

 

Just In: Incredible ikats from India, Art Gallery, Alexander Henry

by Gina

I have had a rule of not reordering prints for the last, oh say, 9 years. I try to push myself to reconsider rules I’ve set and see if they should still apply. I’m tossing this one out, somewhat. I’d still say for about 95% of the prints that come through the door at Bolt, they have one go at it. After all, there are always new things ready to take their place. That said, there have been some things that have been swept right on out of here so quickly, and people have asked about the, and well, they’re just great fabrics. And, they continue to be available, that’s a necessary part of the equation. So, let’s revisit some old friends, shall we?

From top to bottom: a cotton lawn from Alexander Henry (you’ve seen the Josephine sample in the store), a gorgeous ikat from Moda, and the ledger print by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman.

How can anyone resist the glittery sugar skulls and other skeleton prints so well done by the folks at Alexander Henry?

Don’t worry, we still continue to have all sorts of brand spankin’ new things coming through the door all the time! This week we’re excited to have a nice selection from Art Gallery, with their silkier-than-others cotton.

One of the groups of fabrics I’m most excited about are the gorgeous traditional ikat sarees from India. These are incredible textiles, simple as that. (They  are also pretty challenging to photograph…)

Enjoy!
