Entries in wool (3)

Just in: Dear Stella, luscious cottons and cotton silk, Liberty!

by Gina, photos from Heather

We’re up to ears in new fabric! A few shots of some of the latest arrives:

Take a Hike from Dear Stella, cute marshmallows on skewers, campfires, canoes…

New apparel cottons and cotton blends.  That sweet silver and blue petal print on the far right is a luscious silk cotton blend.

A few more incredible Liberty of London Tana lawn prints, including one from their artist series in the center.

The beginning of our wool for the season has arrived.  More just came in last night too! Don’t forget to check the sale section for other wools.

And, be sure to check out our Instagram feed on our website (or via Instagram, of course) to see some new ribbons and (oh my gosh!) amazing digitally printed drapey, drapey goodies! City scenes, trees, florals…they are really special!

Just in: home dec sateens and more wool!

by Gina

We’ve just welcomed into the store some gorgeous new home decor weight cotton sateen from Free Spirit.  Bold designs, bright red, classic navy, soft grey and mustard gold, and soft grey and pink.  This fabric is great for recovering chairs, pillow covers, bags of all sorts and even apparel that needs a little more structure, like an a-line skirt!

Wanting something a little warmer?  We have a fantastic wool selection at the moment.  And, it just grew larger this week!  A couple of solid, 100% wool pieces along with a black/white wool blend and a super cozy navy cotton blend sweater knit (top bolt) got unpacked earlier this week.  Lovely!

And, who wouldn’t be into some great new Japanese prints?  I’m particularly fond of the one with the warrior gear….Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!  We’ll see you Saturday (remember, we take a break on Thursday and Friday) for triple Supportland point joy!

Just in: apparel goods and cottons

by Gina

Hi there!  First, I need to say a big thank you to all of you who came out for our bi-annual sale!  As is usually the case, we have a lot of things left over that are still discounted (a whole slew of things at 40% and 50% off!) and the remnant bins are overflowing.  I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from the Just In posts as we geared up for the sale, but we’re back with all sorts of fantastic new apparel goods and quilting weight cottons.

Let’s get started with some new wool!

We’ve really grown our wool selection this year and I’m super excited about it.  Not only do we have a great selection of heavier, coat and skirt weight wools, but we have some gorgeous wool voiles and other fine, lighter weight wool with more drape.  Gorgeous!  Here’s a peek at some of the heavier weight pieces.

(As I was leaving the store yesterday, I opened a package with a couple more beautiful wools and other wonderful wintery apparel fabrics….stay tuned for more or better yet, come in soon and see them in person!)

After the sale we were excited to put out the newest arrivals in the cotton department.  These smart green and blue prints from Dear Stella’s Ikebana line.  The two pieces at the top are part of the Seven Wonders line by Parson Gray (aka David Butler) for Free Spirit Fabrics.  We have more from this classy group in both the blue/greys and the rich orange colors as well.

This year I tried something a little different and ordered some holiday fabrics.  Yep, it’s true.  We’ve started to move some out onto the floor and will continue to do so over the coming weeks.  If you’re looking for more than you see, just ask. Here’s a sneek peek of one of the groups. 

We also just receive a slew of books, some new to the store, some old favs.  I’ll fill you in on that in the next day or two. 

See you soon!
