Hard working fabric

So much lovely new fabric arriving at The Workroom at the moment. We're choosing really carefully. We want every bolt we buy to work really hard for you. When it comes to building your fabric stash we want to offer fabrics that will work in lots of projects. It's easy sometimes to fall in love with the marketing of a fabric range. Often a whole fabric range will be so perfectly put together that you'll want it all, but i'm a real advocate of mix and match. Hard working fabrics aren't always the star of the collection.Often they are the supporting actors - but heh, they'll do that job in LOTS of projects for you, their support lets your star fabrics sing, they are the glue in your colour scheme.

I'm so excited about our expanding fabric range. I really think about it as designing the perfect stash for my students. We've just got in a whole load of Denyse Schmidt Ansonia and Florence prints, some Flea Market fancy (always a classic stash basic), some gorgeous soft Heather Bailey True Colours and Lottie Da and the iconic Lotta Jansdotter Mormor. We've also stocked up on solids and spots and soft greys and linens and all those great background fabrics.

I'll be back soon to talk about our star fabrics too - we have some delicious irresistible prints coming in. I think some real classics in the making. Leah Duncans Meadow, Tula Pinks Fox Field, Jennifer Paganellis Lucky Girl.

Come and see us, have a cuppa and a browse at The Workroom soon.
