It’s that time again! Time for you to weigh in on all the brand new Cotton and Steel collections and help us decide what to stock. You can earn 25 Stash Points for each survey you complete by end of day on Friday, 4 November and there are a total of eight surveys! So grab a cup of hot chocolate and settle in for some imaginary shopping. I *think* all of the collections are hitting stores in January, except for Wonderland which will ship in March.
Wonderland by Rifle Paper Company – A few years ago, Anna Rifle Bond was asked by Puffin Books to illustrate the 150th anniversary edition of the classic novel Alice in Wonderland. The Wonderland collection brings her nearly 80 hand paintings to 32 high quality Cotton and Steel fabrics, including quilting cottons, lawns, canvases and rayons. Alice falls into the rabbit hole to a world of tea parties and enchanted forests, meeting a well-known cast of characters along the way.
Jubilee by Melody Miller – Jubilee is inspired by a retro neighborhood block party and it has the fun vintage flair that Melody is known for.
Yours Truly by Kim Kight – For her new collection, Kim started with love-themed motifs from her extensive vintage fabric collection and created prints the celebrate sewing as an act of love. The colours include a bit of pink neon and metallic gold heart action. Plus there’s a love poem on the selvedge that you can use for quilt labels and tags.
Sleep Tight by Sarah Watts – Sleep Tight is a gender-neutral collection inspired by what babies might dream about, and it features lots of cute animals and a sophisticated color palette that is on trend with modern nurseries.
Flower Shop by Alexia Abegg – Flower Shop is inspired by the sights of an outdoor Mexican flower market. This collection at its heart is really Print Shop 2; Alexia continued with the same techniques and sense of play she used in Print Shop but expanded and added more of watercolours into the mix.
Kujira and Star by Rashida Coleman-Hale – Kujira (which means whale in Japanese) tells the story of a whale and starfish duo that set off to explore the waters off the coast of Japan, and all the fun things and landmarks they discover along the way.
