Amy Butler Heaven

Filed under: Shop Front — vicki @ 9:15 pm

Today we have put the full range of fabrics in Amy’s Love Collection on the website. Have a browse! I can personally vouch for how great the fabric is for dressmaking as well as quilting. I have made 2 Barcelona skirts, the midi dress and a couple of sun surf halters. I am just about to embark on the new Liverpool dress in the Mememto fabric as we have just had a second bolt delivered. It’s the most popular design so far, closely followed by the sunspots.

Late last week we took delivery of Amy Butler’s new yarn range for Rowan! It is an organic wool/cotton yarn that comes in dk and aran weight in the fabulous colours you would expect from Amy. In fact, the colours are taken from her Love fabric collection so, for example, you could knit a cushion cover and then back it with a matching fabric! Pat has taken some of the yarn home to do just that. The accompanying pattern book is a mixture of home, garments and accessories. It is fantastic yarn and will be up on the website as soon as Bob has taken the pics.

I just finished an Amy Butler Weekender bag which I’ve made in some of the fabric we had in the shop 4 years ago. I cut it out…4 years ago. I can hardly believe it’s finished! I will post a pic soon although you won’t get the same fabric any more! So I am onto my next sewing project which is a photo book from Amy Butler’s Little Stitches book. I’ll let you know how it goes…

Happy knitting and sewing!
