New Joel Dewberry and Tina Givens!

The classic style of Joel Dewberry hits new heights with Heirloom. Florals, paisleys and cool geometrics work magic in several palettes... Amber, Garnet and Gold.

The magical land of Pernilla's Journey is created by Tina Givens based on a story she read as a child and found again for her daughter. Elephants, unicorns and parrots inhabit this fantastic place. It's both whimsical and lush, inviting stories of your own.

Is it July already?

Wow, where did half the year go? Yikes! Bear with us for a few rambling notes from the last six months. *(If you stay with us til the end of this post, there's a special waiting.)

• SFF is growing thanks to our great customers and partners! You guys are awesome and make our job so much fun every day! It's good to be surrounded by fabri-holics like ourselves.

• Our first trip to Quilt Market was amazing. We learned a lot, made some great finds and are more excited than ever to continue to bring you the bestest and freshest collection of fabric ever. Watch out Houston!

• We have been working on the shop sections to make it easier to navigate 60+ pages of fabric. There is now a "New Arrivals" section for the stalkers. We know you're out there and we love you for it. :) Etsy's "newly listed" button also includes re-lists so it's not exactly "what's new". Now you can find it by section. We also have sections for Organics, Blenders and Basics, Solids and a category that will be growing significantly in the next several weeks and months... "Japanese Fabrics." We'll be getting in new lines from Daiwabo, Hokkoh, Yuwa and Echino for starters.

• Round 3 of the Scrap Quilting Bee is getting under way, this one for Margaret's Hope Chest. Two quilts for Project Linus have been completed and the quilt for the ALS project is almost in the hands of a Fairy Godmother for completion. We've been behind on photos but promise that we haven't forgotten and will update again soon.

As a mid-year, Fourth of July (for our US readers) celebration, we are offering our $2.50 US/$5 Canada /$7 International flat rate shipping special this weekend (ends Monday 7/4)! We will refund by PayPal after purchase.

Many, many thanks for your continued support.

Happy Sewing!
Peg and Becca
