The Fabric Maverick says: July is my 2nd favorite time of the year!
Yes, it is time for our annual Christmas in July sale! Nothing puts you in a holiday mood than looking at fabulous Christmas fabric. We have beautiful fabrics from everywhere we could find it. You will see the rich, elegant metallics from Hoffman Fabrics and Robert Kaufman Fabrics. What can one say about Moda. The designers from 3 Sisters to BasicGrey have created some fabulous collections. Looking for a Retro-Mod, whimsical Christmas! Michael Miller and Alexander Henry cannot be beat! There is also a very hip group from Studio E Fabrics- Merrytown. Every year I look for a collection from Debbie Taylor-Kerman (Henry Glass & Co.). I am never disappointed in her collections. Winter Wonderland is no exception.
This is the time to lay out your master plan so it will all come together at Christmas as if you have done this with no effort. Now if you are planning to do a Christmas quilt, you need to start now. By the way, have you noticed the wonderful free downloads that are available. I cannot decide between Moda's Figgy Pudding or Wintergraphix ii. My fingere are itching to sew.
If you are looking for more "free" projects- Moda Bake Shop has a great tutorial for a Christmas topper made from 2 charm packs.
There is even a recipe for "Whoopee Pie". Which should I do first?/
Maywood Studio has some great Christmas Stocking pattern downloads. By the way, we will soon be carrying Maywood Studio and Avlyn Fabrics. I am currently working on Thimbleberries Santa Town Treeshirt. It is so easy to assemble and looks fabulous. I'll post a picture when I'm finished.
Make your list and shop before it is all gone!
Start the countdown for Christmas now!
