Brush Strokes, Holly Degroot’s first collection for Cloud9 Fabrics, is here! This is a cheerful and playful collection of graphic blooms and geometric prints painted in vivid shades of watercolour. Cloud9 have released the Chromatic Quilt as a free pattern for Brush Strokes. How cool does that look?
But of course, this collection just begs to be sewn up into girly garments, like this little Geranium Dress! I could also totally see it paired any number of cute, flirty women’s dress patterns, like the Sewaholic Cambie, the Christine Haynes Sylvie, the Made by Rae Washi.
Find Brush Strokes in the shop here!
The newest Limited Edition collection from Art Gallery Fabrics is Boardwalk Delight by Dana Willard, the creator of Made Everyday! There are some gorgeous ideas and inspiration in the lookbook, plus this free quilt pattern!
This collection is filled with creamy cones in vibrant colours, candy dots and plenty of geometric shapes. It’s just right for summer garment sewing, colourful home dec accents, happy quilts and more! Find Boardwalk Delight in the shop here.
Tumble Blocks is a gorgeous 108″ wide collection from Michael Miller on medium weight cotton sateen. With a slight sheen and a silky feel, it’s equally suited to quilt backs and garment sewing! Remember – if you’re garment sewing with this fabric you may be able to cut your fabric requirement in half! Find Tumble Blocks in the shop here.
We’ve added a new section to our shop – paper flower making! We’re absolutely smitten with the paper flowers we’re seeing around pinterest and instagram and want to get in on the fun. So you’ll find kits and templates, materials and books to get you started! Find it all in the shop here.
We’ve just taken stock of 20 colours of Rico Essentials Soft Merino Aran! This lovely yarn is a 100% superwash wool with good stitch definition and a beautiful colour selection. It’s just right for soft and cosy warm jumpers, cardigans, blankets, childrenswear and more! Find it in the shop here.
We are thrilled but honestly not at all shocked that our friend Charlotte Newland won series four of The Great British Sewing Bee! Knowing how prolific, fast and precise Charlotte is when it comes to sewing made her a safe bet, for sure. To celebrate we’re hosting a little party in her honour at the shop and you’re all invited to join us! Pop in and have a glass of bubbly with us and see if she’ll spill any show secrets. Here are the details:
