Vintage Trailer Travel Fabric - retro by Michael Miller

For most of us it's not the season to think of camping ... unless you're one of the lucky folks who gets to winter someplace warm!
In that case, you may be thinking of outfitting your travel trailer for the season. We have four very fun retro fabrics that would make perfect curtains for your RV! Think fifties... think Airstream trailers... or just think about collecting some of these novelty fabrics to add to your stash.
There's the fabric pictured (Trailer Travel), plus a Trailer Stripe fabric, Vintage Trailers on an aqua background, and a fun companion fabric that's simply called Lawn Art. All are by Michael Miller fabrics so you know they're top quality.

Back to Nature - lovely leaf, pinecone, and berry fabrics

Have you seen the new "Back to Nature" group by Timeless Treasures? We think it's very timely (no pun intended) that this collection has come out in the fall, with its lovely leaves, berries, and pinecones. In shades of soft sage green, beige and brown, with little bits of burgundy and blue for accents, it works well for seasonal projects or as a companion for traditional country decor. We even had a customer show us her burgundy and green plaid wallpaper, and these fabrics were just perfect with it! And we're certain that you'll find many uses for this lovely fabric group too... whether it's a quilt or curtains or table linens that you have in mind. Go ahead, be creative!

Moda Marbles Jelly Rolls - in half portions

Something new... let us know what you think!

We're offering pre-cut 2.5" fabric strips of Moda Marbles, in specialized color groupings that we hope you will like! These are our own color combinations, so they're not something that you'll be able to get elsewhere. We've bundled them in groups of 20 strips, which is half the size of a traditional Moda "Jelly Roll", and also half the price. 'Cause sometimes you only want a half portion, just a little bit to play with or add to your stash.

This grouping is called "Autumn"... inspired by the hues found in fall leaves and the landscape this time of year.

Major Buying Spree!

Oh, my! So much fun but really very tiring! Two days in a row, two sales reps came to call, LOTS of new lines to choose from!

Just some of the new fabrics that we have on order include "Children of the Sea 2", with more wonderful ocean creatures (sea turtles, dolphins, and seashells) featuring the art of Christian Riese Lassen. Also a new buffalo scenic print and an eagle pillow panel, all by Elizabeth's Studio.

New groups from Moda that we'll be carrying include: Love U (November arrival), Lamour (December), Spring Fever (January), Lakeside Resort and Make Life (February), Cherish Nature and Frolic (March).

Also new: we'll be carrying some of the pre-cut fabrics from Moda to fill out these collections: charm packs and jelly rolls.

So you have plenty of time to plan ahead!

New Dogs from Makower UK - Woof!

Yes, "Woof" really is the name of the collection! Fun, bright colors, and a variety of different breeds makes this a light-hearted group that's perfect for any age. There are several general-purpose blenders included (Tivoli Scroll) that you're sure to find lots of uses for. Come and take a look!

The Cows are Coming (Back)!

Good news... the wonderful "crowded cows" fabric that Makower UK has made in the past is going to be reprinted! This time it's going to be part of a new group called "Buttercup Farm". In addition to the cows, there also will be sheep and pigs. I confess to being confused about the name of the group, though, because though it does contain a yellow floral fabric, the flowers are definitely not buttercups!
