New Fabric Friday!

We've had a couple of weeks off from introducing new fabrics due to exhibiting at a couple of shows, but we're back with 3 fantastic new knit fabrics for you!
These have a distinctly wintery feel, with the weather turning colder we have some lovely thick fleece, a snowflake inspired jersey and an amazingly soft and snuggly French Terry!
1.  Our sweatshirt fleece is always popular and this red/grey stripe is sure to sell quickly.
At a massive 183cm wide you get loads of fabric for your money!  Perfect for a Child's Hawthorn Sweatshirt by Titchy Threads (a great Christmas gift idea!)
2.  If you want something a bit cooler, we have this cotton jersey in white with black triangle arrows, inspired by snowflakes.  It has a Christmas feel without being too Christmassy and would work well with the Thread Theory Camas Blouse pattern.
3.  This French Terry has to be felt to see just how soft it is.  With a deep, soft, loop pile in sky blue, this would make an amazing Jacqueline Hoodie by Itch to Stitch.

Click on your favourite below or visit our New Arrivals Page where you can see all our exciting new fabrics/patterns.
We've just come back from another amazing show, this time the Knitting & Stitching Show at Ally Pally.

We met lots of lovely people (see pics below) and sold lots of lovely fabric!

Our new 'BOLT by Girl Charlee' range proved very popular - "it really is so soft, as soon as you touch it you want it" (actual quote from a customer!) 
High quality combed cotton with a bit of spandex for stretch (95/5), made in the USA exclusively for Girl Charlee, the BOLT range is perfect for tops, dresses, pyjamas, shorts, leggings, baby clothing, soft toys and more!

If you haven't seen the full range yet, visit our BOLT page here and check out all 28 designs. They are selling fast so if you want some you'll have to be quick as there is limited stock for our first run!  We are happy to send samples so you can see how gorgeous it is for real!


We've also had a couple of weeks off from our Tutorial Tuesdays (sorry for that!) but we are back with a bang next week with an amazing tutorial from special guest blogger Rumana (The Little Pomegranate) for this stunning peplum top.  There is also a fabric giveaway so be sure to check it out!
