New Fabric


Customers have asked for bright fabric; this panel and collection should fit the bill. Every color of the rainbow is represented in this floral line. Digital printing has resulted in very intense, and vibrant color.

These fabrics are a perfect compliment to the floral panel. Your projects will definitely come to life with these colorful fabrics.


This digitally printed fabric will certainly have us all feeling nostalgic for the country life. Digitally printed, this fabric is perfect for all your home decor, quilting, or accessory projects.
