More Nani Iro prints arrived recently, shown here with some other Japanese beauties.
Rich, sophisticated pink and mauve in gorgeous floral and geometrics from Dear Stella.
Fun, novelty prints from Michael Miller and Moda.
Great new simple “blenders” and sweet florals with that oh-so-silky hand that Art Gallery always delivers.
And, the very lovely, very modern Charlie Harper prints from Birch Fabrics, organic cotton for your fabulous winter crafting! We also received a couple of prints on their canvas, perfect for bags and such.
Are you trying to think of something to give the crafter in your life, or what to ask for for yourself? Stay tuned for some great ideas! We’ll be posting some really special gift ideas, and we’re always happy to customize collections to be just what you want.

During Quilt Market in spring, April and I were walking down the aisles, overwhelmed by the various textiles surrounding us, and April saw these beauties and we stopped dead in our tracks. I’ve been so excited for these to arrive. They are yarn-dyed (ikats), four different color ways and are amazing. All cotton, a hefty weight. I have already washed up some and started on a whole cloth quilt…stay tuned for more on that. It washed beautifully, with just a little ironing needed.
Another batch of Spring Quilt Market orders I’ve been so excited to have arrive are these Japanese imports. The above two photos show off the heavier weight cottons. Yep, those are puffer fish in the lower photo and hat adorned rabbit heads on a polka dot background in the top photo. I couldn’t resist!
The top photo is of medium weight cottons, sweet animal prints, lots of bunnies. And the lower photo is of printed corduroy. Very sweet acorns and squirrels on navy.
The colors are gorgeous and rich in “Clover Sunshine,” the latest line by Alison Glass for Andover. The fourth print in from the left is rather daydream-y with images of so many different things.
Some sweet hedgehogs, and pretty hydrangeas in “Bluebird Park” from Moda. We have a winter/holiday theme group by Kate and Birdie Paper Co., that uses the same criss-cross back ground and similar colors. The two groups play very nicely together.
Also in, a new selection of sashiko kits and thread. The kits are so fun and lovely. Get stitchin’!

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!
