New: organic canvas and organic knit fabric by birch

The organic fabric manufacturer birch published a new line with canvas and knit fabrics, which we now carry in our shop. All the designs in “The Grove Decor” collection are nice strong canvas fabrics while the collection “Elk Grove Knits” contains stretchable interlock fabrics. You might have seen some of the designs already, as birch took popular designs from several Jay-Cyn Designs collections to create these two new fabric lines.

New in our shop: Skelanimals fabrics

Have you heard of Skelanimals? It’s a brand from the USA with a very catchy design revolving around cute animals… that are dead. Due to their own reckless and ill-advised behavior they died and are now just bones, still they are super cute and look for a home with a special someone to care for and love them. There are a lot of different characters like dog Maxx, rabbit Jack, fox Foxy, owl Oliver and many more.

We now have a bunch of colourful Skelanimals fabrics in our shop.

What to sew: Camelot & Riley Blake

The International Quilt Market is such a great source of inspiration. All the different manufacturers show so many examples of what to sew with their fabrics that you don’t know what to remember. We totally loved the bags and pillows on the Camelot booth sewn with the cute Camelot dog fabrics that we also carry in our shop.

And Riley Blake showed many colourful children’s wear items in bright and happy colours combining many different fabrics in patchwork style. We also really loved the applications they put on dresses and pillows.

Lots of new fabrics in our shop

Oh Gosh, where do we start? In the last days and weeks we really have been adding lots of new fabrics. First of all we have new suppliers. Now you can find lovely fabrics from the Canadian manufacturer Camelot and the American manufacturer David Textiles in our shop. The latter also supplies us with the super cool Skelanimals fabrics which we will introduce soon more detailed. Also we added some big panel fabrics by David Textiles which are perfect for quilting.

Robert Kaufman sent us new fabrics too in all materials available (cotton, flannel, jersey, corduroy). We have adorable new designs from Ann Kelle’s Urban Zoologie collection and super cute forest animal prints from the Forest playground collection. If you like cool retro prints you should check out all the new Jersey fabrics by Amy Biggers.

Since we added Fat Quarter fabric bundles to our shop, they always sold out super quickly, so be fast if you want one of the new items based on Colorstories by Robert Kaufman.

What to sew: Kokka and echino fabrics

Kokka showed some really beautiful examples of what you can sew with their fabrics at the Spring Quilt Market in the USA. As we carry most of the echino fabrics, Melody Miller fabrics and Ellen Lucket Baker fabrics they displayed on the trade show we took lots of pictures of how the fabrics were used for different sewing projects. You could see many  bags sewed with echino fabrics, we loved especially the ones made with the echino rhino fabrics. Collections like echino rhythm and echino twin were great designs for making bags as well. As the fabrics have lots of different patterns which are arranged in stripes, they create a stunning patchwork look.

We also loved the dress, bags and cushions that were made with Ellen Lucket Baker’s citrus tree fabric or the little canvas flower fabrics. And Melody Miller’s retro prints just look amazing on home decor.

What to sew: birch and monaluna

The booths at the Spring Quilt Market in Portland that we visited a couple of weeks ago were so beautiful that we want to show you some of the exhibits a bit closer. They are a great source of inspiration and might give you some ideas of how the fabrics can look like when used to sew clothes and home decor. Many of the organic birch fabrics and monaluna fabrics that you see in the pictures below we already carry in our shop, e.g. the cute birch animal parade fabric used for the children’s blouse or the orange birch butterfly fabric used for the shorts. Others will still arrive in the next couple of weeks.
