Coming soon to an Alewives Fabrics near you

Check this off the list...

We have just ordered "Soul Blossoms" by Amy Butler and "Far Far Away 2" by Heather Ross.

We are going to be carrying the entire line for each new collection.

Here are some images from Amy's new collection, and you can see the entire line here (I will warn you that for some reason when I click on the link the images don't show up in Firefox, but if you are having trouble viewing the images, try using Safari or some other web-browser):

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Sari border in this print:

Sadly, these won't be available until September (boo hoo).

And unfortunately I am not allowed to show you the images from Far Far Away 2, but there are some little snippets of the designs on Heather's Blog here, and fabrics from that collection will be arriving within the next couple of months.

I was anticipating a big show-down with my business associate (also known as Mom) in regards to ordering the whole collection.

We almost never order an entire collection, but instead pick and choose our favorites.

But, when push came to shove, we both loved the two collections so much that we adopted a "no fabric left behind" policy and they're all coming to live with us.

Maybe they'll come to live with you, too!

In the meantime, enjoy the images and have happy fabric dreams tonight.

Yay! Heather Ross! do you know what kind of fabric FFA2 is printed on Rhea?

Colette said...

Oh you know I'll be first "in line" (well online anyways) to order some of the HR fabrics ~ can't wait!

Will you be ordering any of the "Tufted Tweets" fabric by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman? It is too cute!

Rhea Butler said...

Hi Jenny!

FFA2 is printed on a cotton/linen blend, so it won't be the double gauze that the original FFA was printed on.

And Colette, I LOVE Tufted Tweets and consequently anything by Laurie Wishburn so I wouldn't be surprised if you see some in our shop come May

Thanks Im thinking cotton/linen blend will be quite a bit heavier...still good for quilting though?? maybe like that adorable Kokka clothesline I got form you??

yipee!! thanks for asking Colette!! tufted tweets coming to a store (online)near me!!
