Soul Blossoms, Amy Butler's newest collection for Rowan/Westminster has finally arrived at CityCraft after many months of anticipation and we couldn't be more excited about the creative possibilities. Inspired by a trip Butler took to India,the collection is marked by passionate jewel tones and exotic prints. The collection is available in quilt and fashion weight cotton, home decor weight, and laminated cotton. (A few home decor weight prints are already in stock with the remainder and laminates shipping soon.) It is interesting to note the repeated appearance of varying shades of Honeysuckle, the 2011 Color of the Year as announced by Pantone. There is no doubt that sewers, designers, and fabric lovers - amidst a time of uncertainty and unease in the world at large - are ready to embrace rich, vibrant colors in the fabrics that they use in their clothing, their homes, and their everyday lives. Amy's new collection is as invigorating as it is inspiring, reminding us that surrounding ourselves with color is a sure way to lift the spirits and move us forward.
