Entries in Robert Kaufman (28)

Just in: Organic cotton, Oxford cloth, Outdoor fabric and more

by Gina

All sorts of summery things have arrived at the store! Here’s a quick run down. First off, some great outdoor fabrics:

Silky soft, rayon knits in classic stripes:

Sweet organic prints from Birch Fabrics and Cloud 9. First group is Happy Town by Emily Isabella for Birch Fabrics. The following pair of pics are of Rain Walk by Anna Graham of Noodlehead glory; last pic is canvas.

A spooooky skeleton group from Moda:

Lush velveteen and bold canvas from Robert Kaufman:

Also from Kaufman are three classic cotton oxford cloth in blue, white and black. Yippy!

Lastly, a punch of color with these cool, prism-y designs by Alison Glass. Happy sewing, and stay cool!

Just In: chinos, organic cotton and mochi dots!

by Gina

I hope all you Portland area folks are enjoying this past little bit of rain we’ve been getting. The gray skies definitely make it easier to sit inside and sew, sew, sew! Here are some of the latest additions to our selection:

This chino fabric is fabulous, drapey, all cotton, great colors. It’s one we’ve carried in the past, so you may be familiar with it. If not, I think you may want to become acquainted! It would be great for the Grainline Moss skirt pattern that we carry.

And for those who have wanted more of that darling fox print in flannel….it’s back! Along with its elephant friend and some great dots. All organic cotton. As are the prints in the following pics—the latest arrivals from Cloud 9, “First Light.”

A sweet group by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller:

I’m loving the new range of colors of Mochi Dots from Moda, and we’ve got quite the selection at the moment!

Remember this ol’ fav, from Robert Kaufman’s chambray collection? It’s back in stock. We have a slew more Kaufman delights on their way too, which we should see in the coming week or so.

Parson Gray does a great job of providing a selection of subdued, yet intricate designs. Here’s the latest:

And, just yesterday we opened a box with our first order of the newest Merchant & Mills Workbook. It’s lovely, practical and a must have for M&M fans. You’ve got to check it out!

Happy sewing. Don’t forget to pick up your stitching kit to help us celebrate our 10th year! Just send us your address if you’d like one shipped out to you.

Just In: Kaufman linens, Nomad, maps and Skinny laMinx for Cloud 9!

by Gina

Lots and lots of fabrics have recently arrived, including the entire line from Skinny laMinx for Cloud 9 Fabrics. So, all organic cotton, both medium weight and canvas. Yippy. Great prints, great colors. Loving that grass green!

Fabulous new line from Urban Chicks for Moda, “Nomad.” More from Moda:

Very well done city map prints!

Some more whimsy from Tula Pink:

Lastly, we started to receive some great vintage inspired cotton lawns from Kaufman (didn’t make it into the photos) and some really neat new cottons, linens, and blends from Kaufman. A gauzey linen (below), a sturdy cotton linen canvas with a rustic look, and a really nice indigo linen. And, that well-loved chambray with the little colored speckles is back!

Happy spring sewing!
