Old friends. New friends.

Some old friends have return and some new friends will soon arrive.

First, the much anticipated Amy Butler reprints (Classics) have started coming in, beginning with the much loved Full Moon Polka Dots in camel, tangerine and slate, as well as several other beauties including one of my AB favorites, Lacework.

As for the new friends I mentioned:

(Update They're HERE!)

My mom and I had the chance to see, feel and swoon over Anna Maria Horner's newest fabrics, Little Folks and Dobby Dots.

Man! Are they amazing.

The Little Folks voile's are ultra soft, with great drape and a wide color palette. The perfect material for today's sewers who do it all, from quilting to garments to simple home linens, etcetera. Her Dobby Dots are simultaneously gorgeous and adorable. Their fun nubby texture, colors and stripes provoke a vintage quality. I can't wait to get my hands on these. I've been dreaming of them ever since she published this on her blog... but now since seeing them in the flesh (or should I say thread) I'm really going to have to try hard not to obsess.

(And HERE too!)

All new Anna Maria is due to arrive in December.

Along with these Freespirit Fabrics we are also awaiting Denyse Shmidt's new line Hope Valley. We put our order in a few weeks ago and they are all so brilliant that we ordered the entire line. We should start to see those in the shoppe in December as well.

Why, oh why, oh why didn't I know you were in Columbus, OH?? I lived there for 5 years (just off Bethel Road, no less) and never knew about you. Now I am in stinkin' Memphis, TN, which doesn't have much of a fabric shop selection for those of us not recovering chairs. I'm coming to see you when I get back there to visit!
