So. Much. Fabric!

(640 lbs of it, delivered in 10 boxes, to be exact... our UPS guy hates us right now.)

We are feverishly working to get this all up online and processed and put away.

If you can't find Jessica on Monday, it's because she is still buried underneath all these bolts.

By the by, these are all from Free Spirit and Westminster.

I know a lot of you are waiting for Liesl Gibson's "City Weekend" line from Moda, but as of Friday afternoon, we are still on "City Weekend" watch.

We also got in these super cool new straight pins that have been all-over the blogosphere and I have loved them for years and finally, finally, finally got them in the shop.


And we got a LOT of new books that we are slowly but surely putting up on the website... that Wee Wonderfuls book is the cutest thing I have seen in a long time.

I totally snagged a copy for myself.

And the new Stitch Magazine (Fall 2010: the Fabric Issue) came in last week and has steadily been going right back out the door again.

Luckily I learned my lesson the last time and ordered plenty of them.

So, that's what's keeping us busy here at Alewives... they typing fingers are flying!

Did you notice new classes are up on the website, too?

(My brain hurts).

Have a great weekend!

Hello Rhea - I need to get up there ASAP. I was recently married, a fellow blogger (, a fellow Mainer, and a lover of fabric, pins!, and everything sewing related. I am going to try and get up there this weekend! Good luck with all and welcome to the new, beautiful fabric!
