What We Love - September 18, 2010

September 18, 2010

This week the Merchants and myself are looking wistfully toward Fall despite the 90 degree days forcasted next week here in the Beautiful South. Here are a few things we wanted to point out this week that may put you in the mood for Fall as well.

EKR-767.jpgWhen I asked Vickie what she loved this week, she mentioned the new Martha Stewart Halloween Craft products. Martha Stewart is especially inspired by Halloween. Her detailed punches, stickers and glitter collections reflect her love of all things fun and spooky. We are planning a Halloween party here at fabric.com again this year with  costume and decorating contests. I cannot wait to see what Vickie is thinking up for the Merchandising area!

Shannon has fashion on her mind this week with the Hitachi Rayon Blend Jersey Knit. She says it's super soft and has awesome drape. She plans to create a few lightweight, slouchy sweater-type tops for Fall.

Lauren, our resident interior decorator, has just added some new Waverly coordinating collections of home WV garland.jpg  decorating fabrics. Her favorie is the Waverly Loops and Swirls collection. She says they are very clean and modern without being stern. She especially likes the Leaf Garland pattern in all the color combinations.

I am excited about Fall fashion as well. I am trying to make 50% of my Fall wardrobe this year. I am still in the pattern testing and dreaming stages, so I am looking at all my options for fabric in my stash. I am also looking at all the new fabrics I could use that arrive here every week. My latest inspiration is the Wool Gauze. I am thining and Eileen Fisher type vest. I have been stalking that brand these days. I love the simple lines combined with luxurious fabrics.

Hope you have a little time to Oooh and Aahh over the things we loved this week. Have a great weekend!
