'Tis the season for new fabric! The fabric collections released at spring quilt market are rolling in daily here at CityCraft. Every day is like a 100 degree Christmas! There are three new collections that are well on their way to selling out: the highly anticipated and collectible Children at Play by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller fabrics, the "Sorbet" collection from Michael Miller, and the newest collection from fabric design superstar Joel Dewberry: Heirloom.
The Sorbet collection by Michael Miller Fabrics is a delicious grouping of sorbet-toned prints that includes an Ikat-inspired print that I can't wait to turn into a skirt or pillowcases. This weekend a CityCrafter picked up several yards of each print to decorate her toddler daughter's new "big girl room".
It's no secret that Joel Dewberry is one of our favorite designers. His design aesthetic is right in sync with the trend of eclectic, modern florals and nature-inspired graphics using bold, fresh colors. I spoke with Joel recently by phone, and he mentioned how proud he is of this collection. It is a large collection that includes voile and laminate substrates - a first for Joel.
In other news, the ruffle fabric continues to be a big hit! Our second shipment of ruffle fabric arrive not too long after the first, and we are continually impressed with all of the amazing projects our CityCrafters have been coming up with. Here is a small sampling of different ruffle fabric projects to get you inspired.
