Yay for Yuwa

Hoorah, we did see a delivery man yesterday......and then out hearts sank because he came with only one tiny box, but when we open up that box....yay, yummy yummy Yuwa.

We all love beautiful Yuwa fabrics and these are no exception....we have some beautiful soft prints, gorgeous little florals....a must have vintage print, and a fantastic newsprint.

Also back in stock are two much awaited Dutch fabrics......we have the cream Dutch Heritage Chintz, used for the Broderie Perse in Di Ford's gorgeous Mountmelick.

We also have the complete pattern for this wonderful quilt in if you missed out on last years Block of the Month  this might be the perfect time to make a start on your very own Mountmellick.

We also have the beautiful ecru Arabesque back in stock...Di Ford has used this fabric for one of her new quilts, "Pendle Hill".

We still have a few places available for Di's "Pendle Hill" class on August 22nd...the class is $95.00 for the day and Di will get you started on the centre of this stunning quilt.

Well we have a lot of work to do in the shop today, lots of folding to be done...What can you say about Sammy today, sometimes he is just unbearably cute and today is one of those days....we maybe indoors folding lots of lovely fabric for the shelves but Sammy has decided that he and his favourite toy are just going to enjoy the great outdoors for a while.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, hope you all get lots of sewing time and Sammy hopes you get some time to relax in the garden.

All things beautiful . . .

It seems this very hot February weather has kept our delivery men home of late so we know when those boxes of new fabric do begin to arrive we will be flooded.  But, in the meantime, here are photos of some Threadbear beauties regularly in stock.

We love to have hundreds of fabrics in each of our quilts and when you have that many ~ you don't really need that much of each.  So to help boost your stash we are always picking, cutting and packaging small parcels.  Long time favourites are our Dear Jane bundles.  These contain twenty fabrics each 8" x 10" in combinations of either light, dark or medium prints ~ ideal for all of those little blocks in the Dear Jane quilt but also very useful for any scrappy quilt.  These are new light bundles cut just last week.
Dear Jane bundles $25 each
Our Fabric Muffins are another very popular small fabric parcel.  In these we have ten fabrics each cut 6" wide by half the width of the fabric and are in colours ways.  Perfect when you need lots of shades of one colour ~ especially for applique.  These are five new cuts added this week.
Fabric Muffins ~ $20 each
Gold ~ Dark Pink~Medium Red~Light Pink~Red

The lovely Gayle visited us again and here is just a small sample of the beautiful cards that she's made for us.  All hand made with love.

Hand Made Cards ~ $11.50 each
Now, really, if you have all these gorgeous little collections of fabric ~ you may need some place to keep them!  Have a look at this stunning, original cane blouse cabinet that Kurt brought in for us this week.  Trust me,  we've all tried to find a place for it in our sewing rooms, but, sadly, have failed so now it's for sale.
Original Blouse Cabinet ~ $350
And who's a spoiled boy when he can snooze on his mum's favourite quilt just back from a year long visit in Holland! 

Wherever you are in the world ~ hot or cold ~ we hope you are in your sewing room!
