Amy Butler is Re-releasing Gypsy Caravan!!!

We have long been begging Amy to start re-releasing some of her fabulous old fabric lines and what do you know, she's doing it!! This year she's bringing back her very first collection which some of our Cabbage Rose shoppers are sure to have a few pieces of left in their stash! So if you've put away your desires for just a few extra yards of this gorgeous collection to use with that awesome Fat Quarter you have left over, let your fabric lust sleep no more! These fantastic prints are making their way back to our shop and here's what Amy has to say about it!

Back by popular demand! I am thrilled to announce that I am proudly making my first fabric collection, Gypsy Caravan, available again! Now a whole new generation of sewers can fall in love with these fresh designs. With the help of Rowan, I'm digging into my stash and re-releasing these original prints. I loved them when they first came out, and I love them now! I've set the collection up in two easy cap sets, keeping the exact prints and original colors. I hope the positive spirit of these feel-good prints awakens the gypsy spirit in you and all your friends in your sewing community!

Gypsy Caravan will be shipping to stores in April. I can't wait to see all of the new items  you create! Be sure to keep an eye out for my upcoming "Show me YOUR Stash contest!" This fun event will be starting March 15th. Find out more soon on my Amy Butler Facebook Page and web site.

Happy Sewing!
XO Amy

A Line for the Girls & the Boys from Patty Sloniger!!

We just got in both of Patty Sloniger's adorable fabric collections for baby boys and girls from Michael Miller Fabrics! Patty is an up and coming designer and her designs are too sweet for words!

Bella Butterfly Blooming Butterflies Pink Bella Butterfly Butterflies & Blossoms Pink Bella Butterfly Pretty Paisley Aqua
Bella Butterfly Sweet Spots Aqua Bella Butterfly Happy Houndstooth Multi Bella Butterfly Butterfly Damask Bloom

Bella Butterfly is a pretty perfect collection of prints for the little ladies, with those whimsical floral and butterlfy illustrations in this girly yet fresh color scheme, you can create a bedroom or nursery that really pops! That multi-colored houndstooth is probably my favorite coordinate, but there are plenty to choose from in this sweet collection! You could make some especially cute little skirts, dresses, tops or even some pajama bottoms with these! If you have never attempted a skirt for your little lady, then you should think about taking Caroline's Beginner Skirt Class!

You can choose to learn her Paper Bag Skirt pattern for Kids and you'll be equipping yourself to not only create an entirely custom, totally cute and pretty darn cheap wardrobe for her (the skirt takes 1/2 a yard!), but you'll give yourself the confidence to push your sewing skills and try something new!

If you don't have a little one and would love to learn how to make yourself an adorable and fashionable skirt for any occasion, you can choose to learn the Paper Bag Skirt or Simple Skirt for Adults!

Backyard Baby Windy Day Aqua Backyard Baby Snakeskin Orange Backyard Baby Bug Jars Gray
Backyard Baby Backyard Party White Backyard Baby Fun on the Vine Green Backyard Baby Birch Forest Aqua

Now, on to the boys!!! Backyard Baby is just as fun for your little guy! Whether you've got a grandson, nephew, or son on the way, this collection is full of fun and boyish prints that will keep his little eyes moving from day one! I love the jars of bugs and other little critters and that birch tree print with the woodpeckers...too cute! Create a cool baby quilt with this collection or create an entire nursery or bedroom full of fun images to inspire his love for the outdoors early on! The colors are cool enough for a little older boy and still sweet enough for newborns. Check out our 40-50% OFF section for a good selection of simple quilt patterns that would be perfect for using up these cute prints!

Happy Creating!!!
