We have a variety of great Japanese fabrics on their way, and some have just arrived. The following floral linen, cotton lawns (middle picture) and medium weight cotton and canvas prints (bottom picture). Oooh, la la.
Lately the folks at Robert Kaufman have been delighting us with chambray of all sorts, their Essex yarn dyed linen blend and railroad denims. This past week we welcomed in a couple more linen blends have arrived, and we love them too! The grey is their Brussels washer yarn dye, a linen rayon blend, so drapey and lovely. The red: their chambray stretch linen, a linen cotton blend with just a touch of stretch. This just may become your new favorite!
Other Kaufman goodies that just arrived include their vintage denim—heavy and dark, think classic Levi’s 501s and a couple of two-sided goods—a denim and a lighter weight textured cotton. I’m still thinking through some of the best uses of these special ones.
And, from Moda, this cute neighborhood-y print, “Road 15.” Cute!

I’m a huge fan of striped denim and Kaufman has delivered! These new Railroad Denims are fantastic. There’s a wide array, some with stretch, some not, navy, black, grey. There are chambray pieces as well, for a lighter, summer weight.
Lots of robots from Robert Kaufman. Two color palettes—one bright, one soft.
Cheery reds and blues in the Happy Go Lucky group from Moda. Ready for summer picnic napkins, bunting, farmers’ market totes.
I’m very excited about the new Textured Solids from Andover. This is the beginning of our shipment, many more colors are on their way! Lovely, lighter weight, slightly slubby texture. Perfect.
This elegantly playful group, Blythe, arrived last week from Kaufman. Rich colors, bold florals, fresh dots.
The talented Carolyn Friedlander showcased her new Slow Sewing Studio patterns at Quilt Market a few weeks ago. The perfect summer projects—you can enjoy stitching in the garden, the beach, the front porch, the back deck. They are lovely. Her write up about these patterns is just as lovely. Take a look here.
See you soon!
I thought I’d do things a little differently this time around with the “Just In” post. I wanted to feature our new denims, but thought you should see the entire current denim selection. So, here in all their denim-y glory we have an array of cotton, stretch, cotton modal…blends of denim. We have a lovely cotton/linen denim on its way to us too. I’m picturing all sorts of denim skirts for summer…
And, as with the denim, some of these knits came in more than a week ago, but I wanted to highlight them just the same. Some great prints, stripes, two-faced solid lovlies. The two faced ones are so thick, soft and cozy. The blue and purple ones are more tonal, with a lighter shade on the other side. The red however, has a contrasting grey on its “side b.” As I’m writing this, April and Hannah are busy receiving more knits including a medium weight white terry, bamboo knit solid, and two gorgeous silkscreened organic cotton knits from Ten14, and an organic cotton flannel.
The other new arrivals—the latest patterns from Oliver + S. Cute, cute.
