Nectar Bonnet from Paisley and Peppermint

That feeling when you realize you've seen snow melt for the last time and you can trade your winter hat for a sunbonnet? This little one over at Paisley and Peppermint shares our sentiments precisely. Our Nectar fabrics will certainly put a busy bee in your bonnet to kick-start lots of projects to take you into spring and summer.

We have a fun variety of new and newly re-stocked items for you today!


Literary from Heather Givans

Literary Fabric Poster

What could beat walking into a room filled with library card catalogs, checkout cards with date stamps, and the smell of old books? Books and their readers are celebrated in Literary, Heather Givans' newest collection for Windham Fabrics. From the beautifully ornate papers found on the insides of classic novels like Moby Dick or The Boxcar Children, to the printed text of Anne of Green Gables, Heather creates a collection that will enthrall bookworms, bibliophiles, and sewers alike. Whether you're someone who stacks books neatly or more of the shoveling books into every crevice of your home type, the joy of reading and sewing is found in Literary. See the beautiful Lookbook from Heather and Windham for more on the gorgeous projects pictured, and even more sewing inspiration! We're happy to say that all Pre-Orders have already shipped and are on their way to you!
