New Spring Fabrics

Easter is a few short weeks away (well, five and a half weeks away) so now is the time to start thinking about those Easter projects – skirts, girls’ dresses, table runners, aprons!

Printemps fabric

This new Moda line called Printemps is so very spring-flavored.

But if you are looking for something with a little more glitz and glam, check out the new sparkle fabrics from Riley Blake.

Pretty spring colors, with just enough sparkle!  My favorite are the damask prints!

These are just two of the new spring lines we have on the shelves.  I’ll have more sneak peeks of the other lines, but if you just can’t wait then stop by the shop and see them in person!

Minky & Cuddle fabrics

 As I promised yesterday, I’m back with a look at our new March display!

hutch display at The Fabric Mill

We’ve swapped out our hutch display this month for a trunk show of Cuddle fabrics.  Sure, it’s fun to see, but you really must come and feel it to appreciate it! 

This little guy is my favorite – he peeks out from around the right corner of the hutch.  And yes, that’s applique!

There are so many wonderful textures, patterns and colors!

And minky ruffles??  Yes!  The ruffle adds such a nice, finished touch to this baby blanket -

The main shelf of the hutch is FULL of patterns, idea sheets and pages with tips and tricks – all to help you find new, fun ways to use Minky & Cuddle fabrics in your sewing.

I have this pattern on my to-do list now.  Isn’t it sweet?

Lovely new Precuts!

Our shelves are full of new fabrics this Spring!  One of the newest lines is Mirabelle and it is THE perfect collection of spring prints.  You’re going to love it.  We have the yardage (I’ll show you more of that in a later post) but for now here’s a peek at the stack of precuts we have available from Mirabelle:

We also have precuts for the Little Black Dress 2 line.  I showed you some of the yardage from that line back in this post.  These prints are so elegant and gorgeous!

And have you seen our new hutch display?  It’s only up for a few short weeks!  We’ll take a look at it in tomorrow’s blog post, but you’re going to want to see it in person – I promise!

We have Rocket Age!  This adorable line from Riley Blake is filled with old-school charm.  I love this main print – it makes me wish my boys were young again!
