Entries in Robert Kaufman (15)
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!
It’s so satisfying to find a pattern that fits every time. I can’t get enough of this adorable pencil. This pattern is a great basic shape to have and it’s incredibly easy to alter. As you can see, I’ve left off the ruching because I like clean simple lines. It only takes only an hour to sew and 3/4 yd. of fabric!
There are some photos below to show all of the different closures I’ve done. My favorite is the invisible zipper. The first one I made was in wool. I made a linen version for a wedding this summer and the Robert Kaufman Essex for everyday. Versitile and simple. I love it. There’s a sample hanging in the shop that I made from Robert Kaufman railroad denim. Come visit!

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!
