New Fabrics and a massage for Sammy!

After a huge team effort last week to upend half the shop and rearrange things, we were just feeling satisfied that everything was looking ship shape in readiness for our visitors for the Applique Exhibition next weekend.  Then the delivery man arrived on Monday...., and again on Tuesday!  Yes, box after box of new fabric had to be unpacked and shelved which meant lots of shifting and rearranging ~ again!  Of course, we always love having new fabrics to show you, so here are some of the ranges from this week.

 Garden House by Jan Patek for Moda is a fantastic collection of warm reds, tans, and teals with a great mix of large and small prints.  It is rich and luscious, and sits beautifully as a collection, or mix and match with other ranges. The tiny delicate checks are brilliant for backgrounds, and how good is that big floral for borders, setting triangles, fussy cutting or borderie perse!
#1 Garden House $26.50m
#2 Garden House $26.50m
#3 Garden House $26.50m
#4 Garden House $26.50m

Songbird Gatherings from Primitive Gatherings is another great range of tiny delicate prints in milk chocolate brown, medium red, and rich cream.  We especially love the shirting style prints in brown on cream, and the teensy tiny little birds.
#1 Songbird Gatherings $26.50m

#2 Songbird Gatherings $26.50m
Also on our shelves this week is Farm House from Sara Morgan.  It has been a while since we had a new collection of traditional Turkey Reds, Poison Greens and Chrome Yellows from the late 1800s.  The prints are gorgeous with some we haven't seen before ~ well worth adding to your reproduction stash.
#1 Farm House $26.50m
#2 Farm House $26.50m
These seven little prints from Chocolate & Bubblegum by Audrey Wright were just too delicious to resist.  It's a funny name for some seriously gorgeous fabrics.  We love the icky greeny-gold and the soft pink and cream combinations.
Chocolate & Bubblegum $29.75m
All the preparations for the Applique Group Exhibition (12th & 13th March) and all the new fabrics and friendly faces we've seen in the shop this week really took it out of Sammy who was feeling exhausted  ~ nothing a good ear massage couldn't fix!  Have a great weekend everyone!
