New Fabric, New Ideas

New fabric arriving in the store is a great way to break up these warm summer days!

These new Civil War prints are from a variety of manufacturers including Marcus Brothers and Blue Hill Fabrics. Perfect for supplementing your stash in shirtings and basic colors, and there is also a large scale print featuring American presidents which would be great for starting a new memorial project!

This new Christmas fabric is called Julien, and is designed by Julie Paschkis. This is the same artist who designed the 2010 Shop Hop fabric, and who also works as a children's book illustrator. Her Christmas line showcases bright red, gold, coral, and green and includes a panel for stockings as well as one for a holiday perpetual calendar, as a countdown through December to the New Year. A great alternative to the traditional advent calendar.

This darling little apron just makes you want to fly off to France and start cooking, right? The bright colors and farmhouse theme are eye-catching and modern, and we are excited to see some other uses for this fun fabric besides an apron (although we do love aprons...)

Happy Stitching!
