Red carpet for Ann Kelle at The Fabric Loft

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Just a quick post to let you know that we have yet more of the fun designs by clever girl Ann Kelle… among other things of course!  We are in complete awe with new additional designs to her Urban Zoologie and Remix collections.

We have been playing mix and match with Kona Cotton in Lemon and Riley Blake Apple of my Eye… what do you think??

And before we forget, Kona Cotton in Ash is back in stock for all of you that requested it!

Dress up days by Riley Blake

Monday, July 30th, 2012

How is your summer going?  Enjoying the Olympics?  Well we have certainly been out and about, cheering up for our athletes, playing with fabric, buying even more… and this is just some of what we have new in the shop:

Since we know you love so much Riley Blake, we couldn’t let the Dress Up Days collection pass and it is here now in store!  There is a bit of everything, spots, zig zags, flowers, even bicycles and a little dog on its own trolley.  How totally Riley Blake is that?!?!?!

There are a few more things in stock, my very own favourite is the Essex Yarn Dyed Linen/Cotton blend in Flax.  It didn’t take me long to convince Nicola that we had to have it.  You  must have seen a few blogs using it and it is to die for, busy people doing the Zakka Style sew along have been cutting and sewing lots of little pieces of this beautiful cotton/linen blend by Robert Kaufman.

For a few more new fabric in stock, don’t forget to check our New Items page ;)

Have a lovely week,

Sweetness is in stock

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Have you seen our new fabrics??  They are sweet and shabby chic and they are part of the Penelope collection by Lakehouse.

These beauties remind me of the beautiful rose gardens, and now that the summer is at full bloom they couldn’t be more perfect.


I found a few quilts made with some of this fabrics, check them out here.  But if I am honest I think they would look fantastic in a very scrappy looking quilt too.

A walk in the woods is here!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

You might have seen it announced in our Facebook page, you might have even got a notification direct to your email account if you previously asked us to do so… but if you haven’t read it in either of those places, now you know: Aneela Hoey’s sweetest ever collection, A walk in the Woods, is in stock and we love it!

We have fabric on the bolt and also charm packs and layer cakes.  If you don’t know where to start or what to do with it, I will strongly suggest to get at least a charm pack, for under £10 you can’t go wrong and you get 42 squares of prettiness!

I am going to do that, and maybe a bit of the mushrooms or the blue birds … I have no idea what I am going to do with them but I know I won’t make the same mistake that I did with her first collection, the fabric sold so quickly that I never had a chance to keep something for my owm stash and the same happened worldwide so I couldn’t even re-stock it.  Oh well, you live and learn ;)

One more Echo fabric

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

I am so pleased to let you know that Nicola has managed to get a Moira in Deep Indigo from Lotta Jansdotter’s Echo collection.

I don’t need to go on and on about how popular this range has been, so getting this extra design was quite something and I hope you like it to.

The dress that Lotta is wearing in the image below is made using this same fabric, pretty eh?

I am being tempted to use this other fabric from the same Echo collection to make a Tova tunic.   Decisions Decisions!

A stitch in color

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

We have just received A stitch in Color charm packs and jelly rolls by Malka Dubrawsky and Sassy jelly rolls by Sandy Gervais both from Moda.

Both lines are very different from each other, which makes it harder to find a favourite.  In the mean time I leave you with a link of what to do with 2 of the A stitch in color charm packs, Wonky Baby quilt.


Wonky Baby Free Quilt Tutorial

The pattern is free and it was created by the creative minds of Piece n Quilt.  The great thing about this pattern is that it doesn’t have to be for a baby, it would look good in any child’s room :)

Riley Blake is back!

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

For those of you that have not noticed it we have got some Riley Blake designs in the shop and they are ridiculously pretty.  So Sophie collection is, well, so Riley Blake, very cute, great colours, and as usual they are patterns that will make a child smile and a grown up crave for them.

If you have never bought Riley Blake fabrics I must warn you, they are highly addictive.

These are a few images of some of the fabrics that are in stock, but if you want to see all come on over and check them out.  There will be more fabrics arriving soon, we will keep you updated, don’t  you worry.


Sunday Stash #23

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Are you ready for the holidays?  All the decorations are up, shopping done, just waiting for Father Christmas to bring the presents??  If you have been hit by the calendar like me and don’t have things quite ready, let me tell you that I have a feeling that we are just not on our own.  I am trying to do as much as I can as long as I enjoy it, the rest, I am afraid it will have to be left for next year.

If you still have a bit of shopping to do, of if you just want to reward yourself because you have been so good and organised, we want to help you out and offer you 15% off from all orders from now until the 15th December!  All you need to do is choose pretty fabrics, add it to your cart and enter code XMAS15.  No minimum purchase necessary, valid to all orders.  Pretty good eh?

I close for now because something tells me you have got a lot of shopping to do ;)
