Site Downtime

First, we want to let you know that we’re upgrading our server this weekend and may experience some downtime.  If you stop by and the site is unavailable, please check back soon.  We really shouldn’t be offline too much.   Thanks in advance for your patience.    (And don’t worry–we’ll still be posting our Scrap Buster ideas every day.)

New Products

We’ve been receiving tons of wonderful new fabric!

First, we have this awesome collection, Happy Campers, by Sandy Klop of American Jane.  The colors in this group absolutely remind me of my childhood wardrobe in the ’70s.  There is a great print that is actually 4 designs in one.  The image below shows it opened up, selvage to selvage.  See the cute border in between each design?  You have to add this one to your stash!  It also comes in brown and red.

We’re also thrilled to have My Happy Garden in stock.  This is our first 100% organic cotton collection and I’m sure we’ll see more.  Super cute, nice hand, great color.

The new group by Momo, Odyssea, just arrived.  I love all the blues in this collection.

Finally, we received a variety of stunning prints from the Kaffe Collective (Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and Phillip Jacobs.)    Some of these just take my breath away.  We’ve carried these designers in the shop off and on over the years, and finally decided to give them a permanent space on our shelves.  Look for lots more from The Collective in the coming weeks and months.

Wouldn’t you agree that we have a little something for everyone?

Future Fabric

Alright, this fabric isn’t available yet, but it will be in 2010.  My friend, Mo, designed an absolutely gorgeous collection and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.  If you’re at Quilt Market this weekend, be sure to look for the Blue Hill Fabrics booth to see Party Dress in all its fabulousness.
