Summer Weights and Double Gauze
*Reminder: The store is closed Sunday for the holiday and Monday as usual. Plan to stop in soon though, the amount of new inventory is nearly overwhelming!
Next time you're in the store PUH-lease take special notice of the 6 bins of fabric on rolls/tubes. These bins have been one of the best parts of watching Bolt grow the last few years and right now they are stuffed with all manor of new silk, linen, cotton and knits (and new oil cloth!). As a customer, and especially one who likes to sew clothes, this is great news. Many of these fabrics are very reasonably priced (between 10 and 15 dollars/yard at 54" plus) and perfect for summer apparel. There are several new madras and madras patchwork rolls as well as some lightweight denim-- I am a sucker for both things and have my eyes set on matching wide length pants for my boys.
Excuse me while I get all gooey over the new Nani Iro by Naomi Ito. I'm not sure why more storefronts don't carry the double gauze, but I'm super happy Bolt does. It is luxury fabric, for sure-- lovely for quilts and apparel. The new spotted bias tape is crazy-good, too (that's some ruffly ric rac in blue. I know.). There are so many new Japanese imports from Kokka, Treffle and Lecien ranging from linen blends to quilt weight.
The Weekend Project is going up next week (more like a Happy Tuesday Project), as I'm hoping to show you something finished! We'll also have a preview on the new knits, trims and quilt weight prints. Have a wonderful weekend.
