In case you missed it…
I’ve done a very poor job of updating the blog lately so I thought a quick roundup of new products is in order for those of you who don’t get (or forget to open) our incredibly useful newsletter!
So here you go, starting with the latest!
Nautical was a huge theme at Quilt Market last Spring, and Sarah Jane’s Out to Sea collection was my favourite of the bunch. In contemporary colourways for boys and girls and a wide variation of large and small-scale prints, this collection is absolutely delightful for children’s clothing, bedding and bedroom decor, bags, accessories and everything in between. And even if your sewing plans don’t include little ones, you may find that the lightweight cotton base cloth and fresh prints are perfect for grown-up garments too! Find the collection here.
I just love Laura Gunn’s bold, painterly florals and vibrant palattes! New this week, Cosmos offers the best of Laura’s signature style in bright reds, blues and yellows. This fabric truly is art and will add rich colour and texture to your sewing! Just as the weather turns grey and drizzly, add some of Cosmos cheer to your stash. Find our favourite prints in the shop here.
I’m thrilled to announce that Center City, the fabulous new collection by Jay McCarroll, has started to arrive in the shop. I had to pull some strings to get this collection to the UK and it is so worth it. Center City is a visual road trip through some of America’s most beautiful cities and is full of artsy, edgy and bold designs. You’ll love it for ultra-modern quilts, one-of-a-kind garments and eye-catching bags! The Midtown colourway is here, most of Downtown has arrived and a bit of Uptown with the rest arriving any day. We also have a limited-edition bundle that includes four coordinating FreeSpirit Solids! Shop Center City here.
Storyboek Two is a whimsical children’s collection from Birch Fabrics printed on lightweight organic cotton. We just love Storyboek-land, a world populated by mermaid, horses and fairy tale love stories and coloured by beautifully contemporary shades of grey, yellow, blue and red. Perfect for children’s bedding and quilts, tiny dresses and baby bags! Find Storyboek Two here.
In Oh Deer! Momo has created another wonderland of whimsy and modern Japanese style. Nestled among a psychedelic rainbow of forestry are playful deer and fluttering freebirds. Pom poms of candy coloured flowers pop alongside bold, graphic dots and streams of stripes. Find our five favourite prints here.
Indie is the latest in house collection from the rapidly growing Art Gallery Fabrics! With globally inspired designs in an eclectic palette printed on Art Gallery’s dreamy basecloth, Indie is just right for sophisticated quilts and garment sewing. Shop our handpicked selection here.
