New Fabric

We get in a shipment of batiks about every 6-8 weeks, and it's always fun to open the boxes. The time between ordering and receiving is often three months or more, so when batiks are delivered it's a bit like Christmas morning. Here's part of what came in last week.

We also received this unique undersea collection last week. A bit of metallic makes it shimmer just enough. Fat quarter bundles are also available to go with this group.

We're experimenting with some different types of fabric. These bolts of barkcloth arrived last week. It's 100% cotton and features a slightly nubby texture. Drapes beautifully. Great for garments, bags, and home decor.

Add a border or two and it turns into a large throw or twin-sized quilt. An instructor will be available for the first part of the sewing day to get you started. Then just sew, and sew, and sew!
