One for the dressmakers

 We're so excited - look what's on its way: Beautiful new Art Gallery Fabrics!  These high thread count 100% cotton fabrics have an amazingly soft feel, lending themselves fantastically to dressmaking as well as crafting, quilting and home decor.  We spent an age drooling over these fabrics at Craft, Hobby and Stitch last month and finally they are on their way! We have ordered fabrics from the following collections:
Floressence . . .
Color Me Retro . . .
and Indie . . .
A couple of weeks ago I used the bundle of quarters I picked up at the show to make this scarf.
I love the feel of this scarf - it's so soft.  I'm planning a dress in one of the new fabrics . . . maybe one from the Indie collection? Decisions, decisions!

Talking of Dresses . . .

Washi dress pattern update:  The pattern is proving so popular that the lovely people over at Made-By-Rae are reprinting - hooray!

We're waiting on a date but rest assured, we'll let you know when they hit HQ.


Oh, and guess what?

Fabric HQ have been featured in Make and Craft magazine in their April issue!

How exciting!

  2. We thought so, Charlie. I can see some Owls in some of these! ;-)

  3. Ohh I really have got to knuckle down, be brave and have a go at the Washi dress pattern. I'm thinking those lovely new fabrics may just be the tip over the edge!
