Inked
by Timeless Treasures
There are some really fun black and white prints out there! This group has dotted swirls, starbursts, and confetti. The black confetti print (background in photo) is really cool! Add some primary colors to these, and have a ball!

Holiday Essentials Halloween
from Stacy Iest Hsu
by Moda
We don't carry much Halloween fabric - it leaves the shop 1/4 yard at a time for four weeks, then sits quietly on the floor for 11 months. But every so often, Judy will add a few bolts to our inventory. These two are great, with their small motifs. You can easily make trick-or-treat bags, placemats, and napkins with either one. The pumpkin print (top in photo) can be used all the way through Fall.
Meadow
by Timeless Treasures
This is our second batch of fabrics from this line, with more gorgeous colors! The light gray (right in photo) will make a wonderful background fabric, in several different quilt genres, and both the red and the purple are really rich-looking pieces - excellent to use as accents, for making your quilt pop.
Kaffe Fassett Collective August 2021
by Free Spirit
It's been a while since we've had new Kaffe in the shop. Judy chose a dozen prints that she thought customers would really like. There are geraniums, caladium leaves, mums, daisies, and more, all in the electric colors that Kaffe loves to use. Have you been wanting to try something new - step out of the box? Pick your favorite print, pair it with some tone-on-tone coordinates, and find a great pattern.
Thank you for being our customer, for supporting us, and thank you for continuing to believe in shopping local.

Judy, Rae, Marti, Suzanne, Cindy, Wendy, Kathy, Marjan, Deanna, and Kay
