New Yarns and Fabrics this week

We have a lot of new yarns and fabrics that have come in this past week. Here are just a few samples.

From Crystal Palace, we have a new worsted-weight chenille. It's great for baby items and facecloths. Pick a color from the rainbow!

On the quilting front, we have 5 colors of Minkee, a 60" fabric by Benartex that is super-soft and fabulous for backing baby blankets. Deb Kerr, our teacher who has a longarm, quilted a baby blanket with our Noah's Arc fabric on the front, and the blue/green Minkee on the back. How cute is this?

We also have new whimsical cats from Andover:

And coordinates for them:
And finally, we have the third issue of Asian Fabric magazine, put out by Kona Bay fabrics. It is available only in local quilt shops. It is a great issue, with many ideas for using large-scale Asian fabrics. (We also have just a few issues left of Issue #2.) In the photo, one of our Kona Bay Asian fabrics is in the background:

Stop by our store anytime, Monday through Saturday, 10:00-5:30, to see these new items and more!
