Just in: Parson Grey, gauze and an online shop

by Gina

We’ve slowing been announcing the opening up of our new online store. It is something we’ve been asked about a lot over the years, and while we knew we couldn’t replicate our brick and mortar store, we worked out a selection of goods we felt were unique to the store and / or were requested frequently from faraway supporters. So, check it out. We’ll be adding more product, and feel free to let us know what you’d like to see up there. You can find it under the “shop” tab on our site, or just click here

As always, whenever you see something here on the ol’ Bolt Neighborhood that you would like to have in your fabric collection, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re more than happy to work with you to get you what you want.

Ok, onto fabric arrivals.

The newest designs from Parson Gray, that bottom print if by Brandon Mably.

And, new beauties from Martha Negley. She is one of my favs, I just love her style. I’ve used her past twig and horsetail prints in a variety of ways and have a collection of her other botanical prints waiting to be partnered with the perfect project. Even with something as current as feathers, I find her rendering timeless. You can see her previous feather print featured here in Heather’s gorgeous throw.

We have a “welcome back” to mention: white bubble gauze. You can check out April’s sweet printed swaddling wraps here. This is also a great choice for light, breezy summer attire.

See you soon!

Just in: Anna Maria Horner, Lotta Jansdotter, Dear Stella, Birch and more!

by Gina, photos by Heather

As I’ve said before, I feel like a thousand times, I am a big fan of Anna Maria Horner’s designs.  I love her large scale prints.  These prints are on a light-medium weight cotton linen blend and are gorgeous.  I’m thinking new living room curtains, or a really amazing quilt back.  The colors are astounding.  These bolts need to be opened up for sure, so you can really take in the design.

Lotta Jansdotter’s newest group, Glimma just arrived.  We have both medium weight cotton prints and canvas (the stack off to the right in the back).  She’s done it again, with clean, modern, easy to use designs.  Some new totes for going to the pool this summer just may be in order!

Pretty, pretty indigo and white from Dear Stella’s Ravena line.  Crisp, clean, feels like spring.  Another group just in from DS is Va Bene!  Fun Italian images: maps, scooters and tomatoes.

Sweet new organic cotton prints from Birch are here—Yay Day!  Animals parading, confetti dots, soft, but not too muted of colors.  I particularly like the garland around the doe’s neck.  Very sweet.

And some amazing color combos from Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably.  Enjoy! 

 

New Leaf Folding Tote

by Hannah

One of the newest samples in the shop is Heather Bailey’s New Leaf Folding Tote made by myself. I chose to use a Moda cross weave for the lining and contrast fabric and a piece from Brandon Mably that I’ve been in love with since we opened the box. I think this pattern is very simple and great for a novice or expert. I only made one change, which was using a magnetic snap in place of velcro to keep the bag folded.

Fold into a stylish clutch and into the grocery store you go!

Then open it and carry your goodies!

Thank you for the photos Heather!
