Wow, I can't believe its October already! This has been such a crazy year!
I want to thank everyone who reads this for showing interest in a small business that opened up in the middle of the pandemic!!! Your support means the world to me!
I have been busy ordering fabric for the next few months and have lots more that was ordered for September/October delivery that's been a little slow in arriving. Suppliers have been affected by COVID-19 like everyone else and availability of the base cloth has also been impacted which is part of the reason that everything is moving a little slower than normal.
Let's start with some of the new arrivals by brand that have trickled in over the last month or so!
Warning, lots of pictures ahead!
I have a lifetime passion for animals and I am owned by two miniature schnauzers, so I will always be excited to receive animal prints in the shop! You had me at woof!
Also, how cool is the fact that the skeleton print glows in the dark? (And how hard is it to actually get a picture of it glowing.. there's that learning curve again!)
I gravitate to Dear Stella prints every time I see them! They are cute, whimsical and have a great palette of colours!
These two arrivals are from separate collections and there are a couple more prints from each collection that are on order, but they are just as lovely on their own!
Looking forward to these four prints from the "No Place Like Om" collection that should arrive in the next month or two:
Just one lonely print so far, but catching them all will keep you busy! Yay for Pokémon!!
More licensed prints (by Camelot) should be arriving in October/November!
The coming soon collection now has over 140 prints and more are being added all of the time! I have tried to break it down by expected ship month (with the proviso of delayed shipments everywhere), if you are waiting for something in particular and wondering when it may arrive, send me a note!
Please note: If its in the coming soon collection, it will say "sold out" but that can be read as "coming soon" (since its not here available for sale yet, it has zero inventory and the shop thinks its sold out).
Northcott was my first supplier and is one of my favourites! The fabric feels great, sews up beautifully and comes in a great selection of solids, basics and prints!
Let's start off with my favourite of these three, Journey by Melanie Samra.
We can sew and dream about travel even if we can't travel right now! I am absolutely going to sew a few passport holders with this collection!
And finally, just in time for Christmas (I hope!), Bliss Bold and Bright, expected in December. This is the first full collection (including a few copies of a pattern!) I have ordered for the shop and I am so stoked to try my hand at a quilt top!! While I am a very confident sewist, my personal sewing comfort zone is bags, accessories and home decor items, so this will be a real adventure!
Loving all of the "alcohol ink" style prints!
