It’s World Lion Day

They may be cats but they’re not your average shoe box loving type, they’re the kings and queens of the jungle! Lions are amongst some of the most majestic and beautiful animals on this planet, as well as some of the most feared given their ferocity. In honor of these giant cats, we’ve got some of our favorite lion erasers, lion bento accessories and lion fabrics for you to check out!

Here are some fun lion facts:

Lions can rest up to 20 hours a day in the wild (staying true to their cat nature!)!

A lion’s roar can be heard from an incredible 8km away.

Lions are actually the second biggest cat in the world, the biggest being tigers.

A lion can leap an astonishing 36 feet!

When lions walk, their heels don’t actually touch the ground.

It’s Take Your Dog to Work Day

Are you a dog person? If so, today is Take Your Dog to Work day (but check with your office first if you are allowed to bring yours in!).  Man’s best friend is known to be loyal, playful and intelligent. They also play a vital role in today’s society, acting as service dogs for those with visual impairments, to working with the police, and much more. Many of our favorite characters from TV, movies, books etc. are dogs, such as the super popular San-X character, the funny Iiwaken! To mark this special day, we’ve compiled some fun dog related goodies we have available in our shop such as dog stickers, dog plush toys and more!

New Halloween fabrics from Riley Blake and Timeless Treasures

Boo! Trick or Treat! Every year when we hear these words we are surprised how fast time has gone by. Although the pumpkins are still growing in the garden, in just a few weeks it’s going to be Halloween again. So it’s about time that we add new Halloween fabrics to our shop. We prepared ourselves with some spooky fabrics from Riley Blake. The adorable designs with little witches and vampires are just perfect for projects with children. For the older fans of ghosts and ghouls we also received some Timeless Treasures fabrics with gloomy graveyard atmosphere as well as funny fabrics with peculiar families, who live in horror houses like The Ghastlies and The Odditys. Halloween is coming. Don’t wait until the witching hour.

We love Halloween and the new Halloween fabrics in our shop.

Our visit to the Quilt Market 2015 in Minneapolis: Part1

This year we had a wonderful experience travelling to the United States to visit the Quilt Market in Minneapolis. The international fabric exhibition was a great chance to be inspired by an abundance of amazing designs. We had the opportunity to talk to all of our favorite suppliers like Robert Kaufman, Riley BlakeAlexander Henry and many more and selected a lot of beautiful patterns to complement the great collections we already carry in our shop. While we really love all of our brands, we also found some gorgeous new fabrics of less known exhibitors like Andover that have just become available on modes4u.

Great team. Choosing the best fabric designs for our shop is a hands on job.
