What a great week it's been at Threadbear with so many ladies coming to see us and wanting help choosing fabrics for their gorgeous new projects. Plus, new fabrics arrived which is always the highlight of any day!  We received some real showstoppers from the Yuwa Live Collection.  The quality of Yuwa fabrics is always superb and the colouring and print is second to none.  We chose this stunning Toile print in two colours depicting traditional french pastoral scenes.  The creamy beige/ecru colouring is soft enough to make a gorgeous background.  The faded french red/ecru colouring is very special ~ perfect for a centre medallion, feature block, backing, border, bags....anything you like!
#1 Yuwa Live Collection Toile $34.50m

#2 Yuwa Live Collection Toile $34.50m

#3 Yuwa Live Collection Toile $34.50m

#4 Yuwa Live Collection Toile $34.50m

#5 Yuwa Live Collection Toile $34.50m
Also catching our customers' eye in the shop is this traditional French wallpaper print featuring a delicate floral spray bordered by a pale brown and rosebud chain on a warm ecru ground. 
#6 Yuwa Live Collection Toile $34.50m

#7 Yuwa Live Collection $34.50m
For projects that need a touch of old fashioned musky pink, this next Yuwa fabric features tiny delicate cranberry and mousey grey-brown paisley motifs.  The colours are soft and romantic ~ a great addition to your stash.
#8 Yuwa Live Collection pink paisley $37.50m
Last week we showed you Jane Lury's new book Meanderings of a Quilt Collector, published by Quiltmania.  As we expected, we sold out in the first few days.  But we do have more on order due to arrive in a couple of weeks. To reserve your copy from our second shipment, phone or email us ~  don't delay !
Meanderings of a Quilt Collector $90.00 ~ more arriving soon
 With so much happening, we've been running low on some of our pre-cut fabrics so it was time to do a pick and choose around the shop to create some new muffins, Dear Jane Bundles, and Shirting Rolls. Not a bad way to spend a wintery day!
Shirting Rolls - $24.00

Fabric Muffins ~yum

Dear Jane bundles ~ great for any scrappy quilt project
Speaking of wintery days.... Threadbear's new Winter Trading Hours mean we will close at 4.00pm on weekdays.  Sam is all for it.  He loves getting home early in winter to watch the footy with Kurt and cheer on the Kangaroos - or chase them as the case may be!  Have a GREAT weekend everyone!
