New Liberty prints are here!

by Gina.

That's right.  We've just received eight Liberty of London prints and they are gorgeous, as expected.  There are a couple of repeat prints (the city map and the Cesar--peacock--print), in different colors than we've had in the past.  Other arrivals this past week include new Westminster prints (in pic below) from Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and Philip Jacobs, more recycled hemp/organic cotton woven, the ever popular organic cotton/ soybean knits, a sweet, playful line called Wild Thyme, and cutie pie owl prints on fleece from Valorie Wells.

If you haven't yet touched Anna Maria Horner's new line, Little Folks, you really should.  It is so silky soft.  There's a great post over at Craft about the designer if you want a peek inside the designing process.  There are also some great new fleece-y, sweatery pieces in and more gorgeous wool to get us through the winter months.

We are starting a new program at the store that features a different charitable community organization each month.  At some point in the month you'll see a write up about the organization here by someone involved with it, as well as a special sale day to raise funds.  I will announce the details of the special with a week or two notice and a portion of the day's total sales will go to the group.  In store you will see some sort of display along with a write up, so you can learn more about each organization and how to get involved if you'd like. 

P.E.O. is our group for January.  They are women promoting educational opportunities for women.  We will have a post from Margi--our P.E.O. connection--next week.  In the meantime, check out their website for more information and mark your calendars for a sale on Saturday, January 30thAll books and patterns will be 20% off and at the end of the day, 10% of the day's sales will be donated to P.E.O.  So come by, pick up some new patterns and books and help out a great organization!
