Cotton & Steel Fall Release Arrives - Christmas Break Dates

Hi Everyone

I'm very excited.  The "Fall" release (should be "Spring" for us) of  Design Team Cotton & Steel fabrics are in the shop.  Both the designers and the fabrics were the "hit" of  Market in Houston.

I bought most of the "Fall" releases, including several bolts of their cotton lawn fabric.  I just loved the feel of this fabric.  I saw these lawns made up in dresses and tunic tops, and in quilts.

I was a little concerned that they were too light for quilting, but I was assured they were fine.  Liberty fabrics, which are a similar weight, are used in quilts all the time.  The quilts I saw and felt in Houston were heavenly.

I have this strange urge to make a dress over the Christmas break.  This is somewhat concerning as the last time I made an article of clothing was several decades ago; but there are so many great patterns around today, and I fell in love with the octopus fabric.

So I may be able to show you a dress after Christmas.

We are closed on 23 December and will be re-opening on

These wonders came and visited us in the shop this week.

Hope the Christmas shopping is going well.
