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: Kaufman delights, sateens, Sarah Jane...

by Gina

Hi there! Here are some of the latest greats.  Our most recent orders from Robert Kaufman have included some fabulous apparel goods, including linen blends, gorgeous raisin colored sateen (I’m thinking a Skirt Smarts out of this one), and twill, as well as flannel to round out our color selection!

Those are the Kaufman twills in the center, above.  The white is a PFD piece, or “prepared for dying,” so it will soak up your dye easy peasy!  The denim on the left has this amazing red over dye to it, and the stripe cottons on the right would make up the sweetest Laurel, or Reglisse.

As for quilting cotton prints, Sarah Jane’s new group, “Wee Wander” arrived, and is adorable as ever. 

Some fun, colorful prints from Moda.  The pictured ones are brushed cotton, we also have flat cotton in some of these prints, and coordinates.

As I was snapping shots of these I noticed our very full remnant bins, and thought it’s worth pointing out that as we have oh so many new things coming through the door, the flip side is that we have lots and lots of remnants for your perusing pleasure.  Come take a look and find that perfect something at a steal of a price.

We’ve been adding to our sale trim selection lately too.  Making Valentine’s? And, we still have $1 and $5 patterns.  Wow.  See you soon!

Just in: Westminster extravaganza! Dear Stella pin chevron

by Gina

Westminster Fibers, home to designers such as Anna Maria Horner, Joel Dewberry, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, Martha Negley, to name just a few of the many, has come out with this new grouping of easy-to-use prints, called “True Colors.”  So far, there are collections by a handful of designers, including Anna Maria Horner and Joel Dewberry.  I am loving having Joel D’s faux bois back in stock.  The colors are fantastic.  And, somehow these, along with pieces from AMH’s new line, “Dowry,” and the new V&A line, “Vintage Florals,” all play so nicely together.

We are trying something new and have a few complete fat quarter packs from Westminster available.  That way, you can have a little of each design in a collection!  Great for an instant quilt project.  The current selection includes “True Colors” lines from Joel D and Anna Maria H, and the complete “Bridgette Lane” line by Valori Wells and “Dowry” by Anna Maria Horner.

Bold graphics, rich colors from the new “Sierra” line from Robert Kaufman, by Bren Talavera.  We also picked up the middle print in a coated cotton, cute!

And, some fresh colors of a welcomed new take on the chevron, from Dear Stella.

Don’t forget, our Organization of the Month Day is November 23rd, with the donation going to the Oregon Food Bank.  Please help us make it a great donation!
