Click on the pictures to see a larger image, then click here to find the store nearest you!

We do LOVE our Batiks and I know you all do, too. This week, Enchanted Journey Batiks from Avlyn arrived at all our stores (except Outlet on 4th) and they are incredibly beautiful! The marvelous Aztec style designs really will enchant you. Hurry in - these won't last long,

Available ONLY at our Northgate store, but so cool that I wanted you all to see! Peaceful Planet from Studio E designs celebrates the ground beneath our feet and the joy we can find being it's caretakers. Yummy prints in modern colors fit for quilting, totes or a fab summer skirt!

Oh, my goodness I love this! Early Bird is perky and bright, will make you smile and be wonderful kitchen decor! Pick up a yard or two of the repeating stripe shown (top), then grab several of the yummy-fresh coordinates to go with. Designed by the scrapbooking company, Cosmo Cricket, it's a great recipe for instant style from Andover Fabrics. Available at our Bellevue, Everett, Northgate & Puyallup stores.

Quilters, I know you love Andover's Dimples and now we've got flannels for you! The four shown above are just a taste of the cozy colors that recently arrived at our Northgate and Puyallup stores. Check it out!

It's almost time for our Christmas in July Cafe events and holiday fabrics are pouring in the doors. This week's new addition is Makin' New Friends from Moda. A colorful snowman-ful collection with so much possibility. Use the panel for a fun 'cheater' quilt or start piecing around those smiling blocks with the lovely coordinates (a few shown here). Looks like it would be a great apron or tablerunner, too. Available at all our stores (except Outlet on 4th) and you can pick up tickets for Christmas in July while you're there!

Fashion Diva Heaven - New Knits, Lace & Designer Fabrics

Sophia Double Knit from Logantex is one of my favorite fashion fabrics. It's a great bottom weight that is equally attractive as a dress or top. We carry lots of scrumptious colors and just received six new shades at our Everett, Bellevue, Northgate and Puyallup stores. I LOVE the names! Clockwise from top: Denim, Golden, Hot Sauce, Sangria, Spanish Olive, Tarragon.

Enchanting Lace, also from Logantex, comes in brilliant fashion colors that you'll want to keep in your stash. Great for everything from lingerie to party dresses, it's 100% Nylon and you'll find it at our Bellevue, Everett, Northgate and Puyallup stores.

A few weeks ago, the Outlet on 4th unpacked four big boxes of rolled Designer Fabrics from Ann Taylor, Chico's and White House Black Market (WHBM). It went quickly at just $9.99 per yard, but now there's more! Hurry and you can have first pick from the four boxes we just put out today (at the Outlet on 4th only). Buy the whole roll and the price drops to $8.99 per yard. Fashion bliss!

Kids, The Northwest, Dad & Christmas - New Fabrics for Everyone This Week!

Click on the pictures to see more detail, then click here to find the store nearest you!

One Bizillion BC! Freshly arrived from RJR Fabrics at our Everett, Bellevue, Northgate and Puyallup stores. The cheerful bright dinosaur panel and bursting with fun border stripe paired with our cool coordinates will be sure to delight the dino lover in your life.

Love the Northwest and all things forest? Although the gorgeous collection of RJR Fabrics above is called Autumn Sunset, it's perfect for any time of year here in the Pacific Northwest. The stunning block panel can stand on it's own as a quilt focal point, be cut into pillow fronts or adorn a tote bag. Add the softly falling leaves as a crowning touch! Available at our Everett, Bellevue, Northgate and Puyallup stores now and coming soon to Bremerton.

Okay, Northwest lovers - come and get your fabric! In addition to RJR's cool North by Northwest Postacrds fabric (top) and our very own 'can't get it anywhere else' Washington fabric from In the Beginning (bottom), we just received Northwest Road Trip from RJR, too. Designed by Lynette Jensen, this is a fabulous fabric with a wonderful vintage feel to it's design. Wouldn't Dad love boxers, an apron or cushions for the man cave out of this??? Available at all stores (Road Trip coming soon to Bremerton)!

And speaking of Dad . . . if he's a car or fix-it guy, we've got the perfect collection for a quick Father's Day gift sewing session. Be A Man from Free Spirit fabric designed by artist Douglas Day captures the essence of all things traditionally known as manly, but tool toting women will want to help themselves to some of these vibrantly colored prints, too. Not a new collection, so hurry in before it's gone! Available at our Everett, Bellevue, Northgate and Puyallup stores.

We're gearing up for our annual Christmas in July Cafe event at all our stores (except Outlet on 4th), so I thought you'd enjoy seeing two new Christmas prints hot off the truck. Tidings from Benartex echoes everything you've come to love in the wonderful Art to Heart books. Even if you're not a quilter, you'll enjoy using the Tidings of Great Joy panel (top left) and the Nativity figures (top center) that come on the panel. A fun, easy sew project for you and the kids. Quilters will find lots of holiday inspiration in the whole collection! Available at all our stores (except Outlet on 4th). P.S. Christmas in July tickets are ready at the stores now, too and will be available online soon!

On the first day of Christmas, Moda brought to me . . . a collection of beautiful flannel and cotton! The 12 Days of Christmas artfully blends traditional holiday colors with a touch of modern flair. On the top row, you'll see our three flannels and the bottom two rows showcase the cotton prints from the collection. You'll love them all! Available at Everett, Bellevue, Northgate and Puayllup.

Have fun shopping! I'll have more for you next week.   ~ Annette
