Entries in Moda (25)
Some interesting things came through the door this past week. And, some equally as welcomed basics too!
Let’s start with the basics. We’re restocked with that great hemp/ organic cotton heavy weight stripe in indigo, red and brown. You can see the indigo version used in this great looking tote by Hannah. (It’s the widest stripe.) We also just got in a super cozy collection of solid flannels:
Our inventory is typically quite colorful and contemporary. That doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a more subdue palette of William Morris reproductions:
And, some of Carolyn Friedlander’s new great group, Doe (top two prints are not part of the group):
These sweetly colored prints from Moda say Spring, for sure. Including the raindrops that usually mean spring around here:
We are very happy to get back in these gorgeous, unique, traditional African mud cloths:A shipment of trims arrived yesterday, including knit foldover trim, some super festive, sparkly ribbon and sweet, little polka dot, ruffle elastic.
Are you ready for some spring sewing? Come and see us, we’ll be sure you are!
We have had quite the adventure rearranging the store, and figuring out new ways to display and arrange items. We got in a whole lot of new inventory, and downsized our store fixtures! That was a nice puzzle to figure out ;). So stop on in and check out all the leg room, and highly efficient and organized new layout.
As far as fabric goes this week we have several new items and replenishments of others. Just in on Wednesday we got in a fabulous order from Kaffe Fasset, Martha Negley, and Parson Gray.
We are now fully stocked on all shot cottons!:
Martha Negley didn’t fail to deliver, with her new line inspired by the seasons:
We are suckers for all things flamingo here, so we couldn’t pass up this mini collection:
New from Parson Gray, this collection is inspired by Shaman of the South West:
To get you in the mood for love, here is a new collection from Airmail by Comstocks for Moda:
A new book we got in is this gem from Karen Lewis on how to screen print your own fabric:
A fantastic notion that you wonderful customers highly suggested we carry are Tulip Needles, from Japan. These bad boys are a far surperior needle than the rest. They are made with the highest grade materials, don’t rust, and pierce fabric like butter. I definitely want some of these in my stocking this year!
Last but not least, we are glad to now be carrying these darling patterns by Christine Haynes. These patterns are inspired by vintage sewing patterns, but made for the modern day gal. I’m all for the Marianne if I may say so myself.
See you soon and enjoy the rain!
We’ve been busy doing some redecorating around the store. We’re excited to be finding new ways of organizing many of our goodies to make shopping easier. Stop in soon and see what we’re up to! In the meantime, here are the latest arrivals:
Those well loved Moda sock monkeys, back in time for holiday PJs.
Simple stars, in great colors from Andover.
You may have noticed the uptick in posts lately. We’re working hard to offer up all sorts of gift ideas for the holiday season. Here’s a great option for those who don’t sew and have a crafter/ sewist on their gift list: books. We just received four new titles that offer a wide range of topics and approaches.
