New Fabric, Weeks 2 & 3, Oct, 2010

The last 2 weeks have passed by so quickly. I went up to Inglewood, near New Plymouth, last week to teach a "Playdays" class. In this class students 'play' with Lutradur, Tyvek, Evolon, Copper Shim & painted fusibles. I had 17 eager ladies in the class having fun playing with these different items and learning how they work. Thank you ladies for a wonderful day inside, the weather wasn't too good outside so it was a great day to play.
This weekend just gone I was a merchant at the Feilding Kowhai Quilters exhibition which was held in the Old Coach House Museum in Feilding. This was a wonderful venue as the quilts were draped over and around all these lovely old carts, drays, buggies etc. The quilts suited being in this atmosphere and gave plenty for all to look at, including the husbands. Well done ladies, your show was great.
Putting all the fabric back takes a while but it's all done now.
New fabrics have arrived today, it is soooo much fun opening the parcels to see what is inside.
This fabric range is DeJaVu by Paula Nadelstern.
Beautiful stripes and allover patterns which can be used as they are or cut and pieced into kaleidoscope patterns. These fabrics are NZ$25.80per metre

The fabrics below are from Nancy Halvorsen's Tidings Christmas range NZ$26.30 per metre.
The lovely collection of blenders, stripes, swirls & dots all look so lovely together

This lovely stripe fabric is in chocolate & lime. NZ$28.40 per metre

Teatime Fairies NZ$26.80 per metre and the Fairy Panel (60cm wide) $16.10
Here is the panel and a close up of the panel featuring these gorgeous little fairies and cupcakes. Below is the matching fabrics featuring the fairies and cupcakes.

And lastly there is Rugby Fabric for the boys in your family. This range is designed in New Zealand and has a panel 60cm wide for NZ$13 and and allover fabric of rugby NZ$21.60 per metre.

That's the latest in store.
Think of what you could make with these fabrics and find the time (yeah right) to create something unique for your family.
Little girls will love a quilt or wall-hanging, bags or journal covers from the Teatime Fairies range and little boys will love a quilt or wall-hanging from the rugby fabrics.
Make some Christmas items now from the Nancy Halvorsen range - placemats, table runners, Christmas stockings, quilts, wall-hangings, decorations, recipe book/journal covers and much much more.
Thanks for visiting.
