Entries in Art Gallery fabric (22)
A smattering of new goodies from the past week or so:
canvas, cotton-linen and mid-weight cotton prints from Japan
An array of denims, varying in color, weight and content. And a super sweet elephant double gauze. Yep, they’ve got red shoes.
Silky soft cotton voile from Art Gallery:
More of Art Gallery’s silky soft hand, but in their mid-weight cotton prints:
And one of our most delightful arrivals is surely the hand spun, hand woven khadi cloth from Women Weave in India. You can see some shots on Instagram here. We will do a more thorough feature on these beauties soon. In the meantime, come and get acquainted with them!
We received a great new group of organic cotton voile from Cloud 9 this past week.
Let’s Have A Party, by Avril Loreti:
Another group from Cloud 9. This one medium weight with indigos and cacti.
Moody Blues by Geninne:
We also brought in a voile from this group. The other voile is by April Rhodes from her group, Wanderer for Art Gallery.
And more from Wanderer:
And, from the line Maker, also from Art Gallery:
In a previous Just In post I featured the Yoyogi Park group from Skinny laMinx for Cloud 9. These are the canvas weight goods from that group—so graphic and bold. Great for all sorts of home dec projects and bags!
New patterns and books are always on their way in too. Be sure to take a look next time you’re in, or ask us and we’ll happily show you what’s new!
I hope you all have had a wonderful wind down to 2014. It has been busy around the store—thank you! And, thank you for the kind comments of understanding and support of our time away during this typically crazy-retail holiday time. This past year has been a year of transitions for us around the store with April and Heather moving on to new adventures, and Hannah starting quite a new adventure welcoming her son into the world. We gained a delightful new addition to the Bolt crew in the fall when Cameron came on board. We’ve been busy tidying up the store, changing fixtures, streamlining our inventory, generally working to make your shopping experience better and better.
Now at the start of the new year, we will be saying our fond farewells to Amy, after 7 years (!) of her wonderful service at the store. We have also started to welcome our latest team addition—Nate. We will make a more formal introduction soon. If you’re in over the coming weeks, be sure to wish Amy well on her next chapter. She will be missed, but we are excited for her to see what’s next. Thank you all very, very much for your continued support and participation in the Bolt community. We love hearing about and seeing your creations. We all excited share with the others what we’ve seen on our shifts, so please feel encouraged to send us photos or bring your projects in. It’s an honor to be a part of your creative endeavors.
We have been and will be busy catching up on reordering, restocking and making room for new things. We will be closed today for the holiday and tomorrow (Friday) for inventory. We are excited to welcome you back on the 3rd to see these brand new treats:
Cotton fleece! It’s been super cold here lately, making this new fleece an even more welcome addition to our selection. The cheerfully colored four pieces on the left are organic cotton fleece from Birch Fabrics. The darker three colors on the right are non-organic cotton fleece. All of it is plush, fuzzy and quite cozy.
A new box from Seven Islands (one of our Japanese suppliers) just arrived! It’s always fun to see what has arrived from them. This shipment had not just great fabrics—two traditional Japanese indigo prints and a bold woodsy canvas—but also something new for us, webbing. That top, striped one is reversible, with different stripes on either side. Perfect to add an extra nice touch to your next bag, or whip up some custom belts.
Last but not least, a box from Art Gallery had these beauties from Bari J’s newest line, “Petal and Plume.”
See you in the new year!
