Just in: Market goodies, part 1

by Gina

Quilt Market was in town last weekend and it was a whirlwind of fabrics, notions, patterns, ideas, designs…lots of wonderful conversations and a whole lot of decision making.  I’ll share with you different things I saw and ordered over the coming weeks.  I’m pretty darn excited!

First up, toys.  We expanded our toy pattern/ kit selection by about double with the purchases made at Market.  These adorable little felt owls are from a pattern card put out by Vintage Ric Rac from Austrailia.  They have a wonderful selection of toy patterns, we’re happy to have at the store.

These little felt cuties come from Heidi Boyd, whose book Stitched Whimsy we’ve had in the store as well. These are perfect for a quick hand stitching project, great for nursery artwork, a project to do with the kiddos.  Cute, cute. They can be hung in the hoops, or made into pillow covers or bags…

We also have more of those fabulous stitching kits and patterns from Alyssa at Penguin & Fish.  And, remember, if you’re not near by, we’re happy to ship things out to you!  Just give us a call.

And, fabric-wise, we received an awesome shipment from Robert Kaufman Tuesday with all sorts of fantastic denim, chambrays, voiles, and even welcomed back this lovely striped dobby.  Our selection of the new “Textured Solids” from Andover have started to arrive.  These have a beautiful slightly slubby texture.  Come see for yourself!
