...in the shop now...riley blake designs ivy trellis

Introducing Riley Blake Designs' newest line - Ivy Trellis by Gabriella Hunter Designs. I love this fabric! If you're a fan of soft, muted colors and lovely detailed design, you should really look into this line. As always, I have ordered a select few, but am open to expanding what I offer in the shop because I love them so much! I opted for a combination of the Teal and Purple colorways and they are beautiful! I was so much more impressed with them in person than in the photos...but isn't that always the case???

Another great thing about them is that all the fabrics in the line appear to coordinate with each other. Perfect for home decor projects, apparel, and more! Check them out in the shop and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear your thoughts...which ones do you love? What other colorways and designs would you like to see offered? I'm open to any and all comments and suggestions!

Happy Saturday!

For the love of fabric,

...back from vacation!

Hey everyone! We're back from our vacation and what a great time we had exploring the Pacific Northwest! I'm now officially in love with Oregon...the coast, the trees, the cute little towns, the cheese. Anyone in need of a vacation should put Seattle, Portland, Mount St. Helens, the giant redwoods and the wine country on your list of possibilities. All are highly recommended!

So now it's back to reality where we've spent the past several days playing catch-up - much of which has been placing orders to recover my dwindling stock (you guys were ordering fools while I was gone - thank you!) In the past week, I have placed three re-orders with StudioE! During our 10 days of vacation, I sold out of several Flourish and Freshaire fabrics. I couldn't re-order fast enough! Within the week, though, I should be fully re-stocked. Well, except for those few fabrics that have either been discontinued or are currently out of stock.

Floral in Brown

For those of you who are curious where StudioE's Floral in Brown from the Flourish line has gone, I'm happy to tell you that it's in its second printing and will be returning to the shop! Just not until late summer. The manufacturer has given September as their best estimate as to when it will ship out. Let's cross our fingers that it gets here sooner - I know how much you all love that print!

t-b: Diagonal in Blue, Floral in Green, Leaf in Brown

While gone, I also sold out of some of StudioE's Freshaire fabrics. I was able to re-order Diagonal in Blue, but unfortunately Floral in Green is gone for good. Freshaire has been discontinued and only a limited quantity remains of certain sku's in that line. And just to let you know, only a few yards of Leaf in Brown remain in the shop, so get it before it's gone forever!

t-b: Paisley in Ice, Sway in Ivory, Peonies in Red, Zag Stripe in Red, Pop Daisy in Red

Upon return, I also had to re-order some Heather Bailey Pop Garden fabrics. This bundle seems to just "fly off the shelf!" Don't you just love it? The bright colors and fun designs make me smile every time!

Stay tuned for my next post about the BRAND NEW Riley Blake Designs line called Ivy Trellis. I have a few fabrics from the line in the shop ready to be sent to a good home. If you love them as much as I know you will, I'll be expanding my inventory of the line.

Thanks again to all of you who ordered during my vacation and waited patiently for me to respond to emails and/or ship out your orders. I appreciate it!!

For the love of fabric,

...vacation announcement...

We will be heading out on vacation starting tonight (7/1) and will return July 11. The shop will remain open for those of you who do not mind a delay in receiving your fabric. All orders placed today by 3pm PST will be shipped out today. All orders placed after that time, will be shipped upon our return (these details are also provided on the shop's home page). During this time, please feel free to contact me with any questions or special orders that you may have. I may be on vacation, but I'll still be checking in on the store! Please be patient in waiting for a reply as the days designated for hiking and camping will surely not allow for internet access!

In other news, I just received my shipment of Laura Gunn's Lantern Bloom fabrics. I know, finally!, right? Check them out in the shop now! And keep your eye out for Ivy Trellis by Riley Blake Designs...it should be arriving any day now and I'll be posting those upon my return!

Don't forget, all orders placed before 3pm PST today will be shipped today. All others will be shipped upon my return. Thanks for your patience while we venture out on a much-needed vacation!

We hope everyone has a fantastic 4th of July and is able to spend some fun quality time with family and friends!

See you all soon!
