Entries in Cloud 9 Fabric (12)

Just in: Slicker, seersucker, and voile

by Gina, photos from Hannah

After a couple of days away, sewing our hearts out, we’re refreshed and ready to help with your next project! It was fun to come back to a stack of little boxes filled with new goodies.  This adorable Robert Kaufman “slicker” coated cotton print was one of those new packages!  Cute, and perfect for the wet weather we’re supposed to be getting more of later this week.

And, for the warm weather after that…some pretty new voiles.  Top picture are Amy Butler’s latest, these came in a little bit ago, we just hadn’t featured them yet and couldn’t possibly pass them by.  The lower picture is the gorgeous “Palos Verdes” line of organic cotton voile from Cloud 9.  And, seersucker is back!  The perennial summer cloth. 

Stay tuned for posts on our fab new samples made over the past couple of days.

See you soon!

Just In: Oilcloth, whales and Meadow by Leah Duncan

by Gina

A while back Art Gallery Fabrics decided to branch out beyond Pat Bravo’s eccentric, pleasing designs to be able to offer a range of prints from a fabulous collection of designers.  One of their designers is Leah Duncan and she’s creating some beautiful fabric.  And, it’s all printed on that lovely, silky cloth Art Gallery uses, making it great for apparel as well as quilting/ crafting.  Leah has even caught the eye of the folks over at Portland’s Schoolhouse Electric.  You can see her textiles sewn into bed linens and shower curtains here.

“Hearty Good Wishes” by Janet Clare for Moda is moving fast around here.  Those long, slender whales are hard to resist.  And, who doesn’t love a good ship print, after all?

New oilcloth has arrived! Some non-wild-fruit-combo prints, great for covering a table, shelves, under a highchair or kids crafting area.

We also received new organic cotton voile from Cloud 9, the Palos Verdes collection. So soft and pretty.

A few details to note—our donation day is coming up this weekend. This Saturday, February 22nd, we’ll be donating 10% of the day’s total to Ethos.  See the last post on here for more details.

We will be closed next Monday and Tuesday, February 24th and 25th for our annual staff retreat.  We’ll be busy sewing up new samples for the store and look forward to sharing them with all of you when we return!

See you soon!

Just In: Carolyn Friedlander, Koi canvas, water resistant and apparel goods

by Gina, photos from Heather

Carolyn Friedlander’s latest collection, “Botanica” has been rolling in over the past couple of weeks.  We still have more to come, so stay tuned.

I’m loving the new Koi canvas from Cloud 9.  Organic cotton, sturdy and great looking.  What more could we ask for?

A couple weeks back we brought in some great new canvas pieces that are water resistant. Yep, perfect for bags, coats and whatever else you want to keep out of the Oregon rain (that we’re still waiting for…). 

A shipment of apparel goods arrived last week, including some fantastic bottom weight stretch sateens.  Perfect for a skirt, pants, coats.  Remember those fabulous Clover pants from Colette?

We recently refilled the sale trim bins, so be sure to check those out.  Perfect for making your own cards…Valentines even, trimming your sewing projects, craft time with kiddos, whatever you can imagine.  And, there are still some Oliver + S patterns marked waaaaay down to a low $5!  We’re happy to ship them out, so give us a call if you’re a fan from afar. 

see you soon!
