Hello Everyone and Happy May Days!
We are starting to receive a few shipments of new fabric collections as the industry continues to deal with container delays. Desert Cowboy by Windham Fabrics, a nod to the old western cowboy with plenty of cactus and southwest colors including sage and shades of oranges. Even a print with directions to the rodeo and saloon. Fabrics available in store and on-line.
And adding to our southwest and country collections we have Las Senoritas and Back In The Saddle both by Alexander Henry Fabrics. Las Senoritas is beautiful and a welcome mirage in any desert . The colors are rich with reds, and browns highlighting cactus and missions. Back in The Saddle is a playful collection of cowgirls on black, red, or natural backgrounds. The wild west never looked so good.
Robert Kaufman fabrics has released their new Desertscape batik prints. Our first shipment has arrived and oh my goodness, the desert hues they were able to capture, and the saturation of colors are astounding. Teal, purple, sand just to name a few, with southwestern graphics, fauna and even sifting sand. Of course, I am a true-blue batik lover with a disposition for the southwest, so the love affair was undeniable, and I anxiously await our next shipment of Desertscape.
And last by not least we have a couple new Dr. Seuss prints by Robert Kaufman. These can be found under novelty fabrics in our on-line store.
For those who are waiting on Dance in Paris coming via Moda Fabrics…current update shows an estimate ship date of May 24th – May 28th. The complete collection along with some precuts and kits are on our order and just as soon as it arrives, we send out a shout out.
