Groovy new Novelty prints and Lots more Cotton & Steel

Signed copies of Judy Newman's new book "Quilts for Life made with Love" are available in the store and it is beautiful.
There are so many delicious projects I'm having trouble deciding which one to do first.
Over the past few weeks Materialise has taken delivery of lots of new fabric arrivals. 
This cool collection of groovy and fun monochromatic prints just begged to be cut up and put together in one cute quilt
I have included 16 different prints.... Come in and choose the prints that work for you
At Materialise we have a lot of customers who are mad for fabrics with images of cats and dogs and lately our collection has some of the best prints we have ever had in this genre
Cute (but not too cutesy or daggy) animal novelty prints are always a major draw card and this one is a real crowd pleaser
 So are these horses and you can see why.....
This double gauze with giraffes riding bicycles are so popular that
they sold out the last time we had them (in just one week!)
So hurry because this fabric is no longer available with our Japanese supplier
 Cotton & Steel is one of the latest fabric ranges we have introduced to our store. 
These magnificent fabrics are made in Japan and the quality of the cloth is superb and a pleasure to sew.
Bolts arrive each week and they are the hottest thing to hit town.
This nautical themed range is "S.S. Bluebird" by designer Melody Miller. 
The whales have been a huge hit!
 This cute range "Kujira & Star' by Rashida Coleman Hale is also extremely popular.
Each designer in the Cotton & Steel Collective creates a story around each range which is shared on the selvedge.....
'Star longed to see what was above his little reef so his best friend Kujira took him on a tour!'
"Wonderland" has been a great hit because it is designed by the cool and hip Rifle Paper & Co. 
This iconic company creates greeting cards and all things stationary and is based in the US. 
We have been busy sewing up a storm too!
Sophie has made quilts in all the ranges shown here today so pop into the store and be inspired today!

Sevenberry Fabrics Shine Once Again

We get so many requests for fabrics with houses and street scenes. Rowena and I recently came across these really cool, graphic prints that completely fulfilled the brief. Available in 3 really great colours too... What more could you ask for....?

Classic and timeless, blue and white is definitely a look that our stylish clients want more off.
These traditional Japanese designs are a must have for the fabric stash!

I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this next range of amazing Japanese prints. I love the way these fabrics have been printed; with a very vintage vibe almost naive but still with crisp detail. So exciting.... 
The available colours are great and we have perfectly co-ordinated them to all our Japanese prints. 
Great purple, teal blue, cobalt blue, black, indigo, brick red and white
For all the customers wanting our linen look Yarn Dyed's in colours, they are all back in stock now. Red, Orange, Akky Green, Dark Rose, Mossy Green, Purple, Grey, Ochre and Bright Teal.
These gorgeous double gauze fabrics also arrived. Not too babyish but still neutral and nice with a nice mix of colours. I can see some great baby wraps and face cloths coming...
This week I threw together this lovely selection of Cotton and Steel Fabrics and made this yummy gender neutral quilt top. We get so many requests for gender neutral fabrics and we now have heaps and heaps in the store.
Come in and see all these amazing fabrics and more designs that have just arrived into the store!
Also don't forget that we still have a great selection of Yuwa's, Sevenberry, Cotton and Steel, Kokka and Liberty fabrics on SALE in the store.....
