"Ribbons of Hope" - new breast cancer awareness fabrics

We're ever so pleased to be the first one to bring you preview pictures of Rosemary Lavin's upcoming collection of new "pink ribbon" fabrics. Due to ship to stores in August, Windham Fabrics is donating a portion of the proceeds to the Maurer Foundation, which works to educate the public by providing current and accurate breast health information, to save lives.

The best thing about this collection is that the word "SURVIVOR" is included in two of the fabrics. We can't think of a more powerful message of encouragement!

While most of these fabrics are best suited to "Quilt Pink" projects: comfort quilts and quilts that will be raffled at fund raising events, you'll find that these designs are also very well suited to smaller projects such as tote bags, scarves, and pillowcases.

And of course the butterfly designs can be included in any projects, because there aren't any pink ribbon loops. We think the butterflies on the black background would be a stunning addition to add a "pop" of color to a black and white quilt!

Every year, Windham Fabrics comes out with a new group of pink ribbon fabrics, and they sell out very quickly. That's why we are taking pre-orders on these fabrics so very early. When you pre-order, it helps us to know which are going to be the best sellers, so that we can order an ample supply. And you will be assured of getting everything you need for your project(s).

We will also be offering a Fat Quarter bundle for this nine-piece collection.

The Farm Animals are here!

We've never seen such a realistic collection of farm animal fabrics as this group by Elizabeth' Studio. Goats, sheep, cows, horses, pigs, chickens, eggs... and a craft panel too. As always, the printing and attention to detail on this design are superb.

They were *supposed* to arrive in late September, but were delayed until December because the manufacturer wanted to make sure that the printing was just right. We think it was worth the wait!
