What a Great Week

Business seams to keep getting better and better for our little shoppe. My mom can hardly sew for herself these days. But that is truly a wonderful thing. I wish I could help out more. Perhaps she'll hire an employee soon.

Tuesday brought in one of our largest shipments ever. Three shipments at once in fact. The shelves are now bursting with loads of beautiful new fabrics.

It was late in the day when finally shot some pictures of these great new prints. The shadows where heavy, but you can clearly see the potential.

Imagine a lovely handbag, a pencil skirt or perhaps some cheerful new pillows for the sofa. These fibers are begging to be stitched. Personally, I plan to re-cover the cushions of my most recent thrift store find. Amy Butler's "bright buds" in ivory would be the perfect compliment to its danish modern lines.

And Heather Bailey! Wow, her newest duo Pop Garden & Bijoux is so fun and vibrant. These prints are playful yet romantic, with undertones of vintage tattoo art. Loyal customer Trisha plans to make a pair of pants for her precious daughter Ruthie. Perhaps with ball fringe around the bottoms. How sweet, can't wait to see them! Hopefully we'll have a picture of those to share with you in the near future.

... the first half of our Michael Miller order is here as well. These prints are quite diverse and all very fun. We just love the vintage kitchen print for aprons, tea towels or even a skirt. There's just SEW much to SEW.

You can see more pictures of all our shoppe, the wonderful fabrics we carry, our projects, inspiration and more in our Photo Gallery.
