Back in Business!
Vacation week is over and it's time to get back to business. Honestly I feel so lucky that my business isn't affected by the shutdowns that I'm spending a lot of my work time dyeing and screen printing tea towels that I'm selling locally to benefit our local food pantry. The last batch of about 50 got ironed and photographed yesterday so today's news will be brief so I can get them posted, and hopefully sold soon! I'm sorry I can't sell them online at this time. I'm selling them in exchange for donation checks to the agency so dealing with online taxes and fees would be too complicated.
Fabric of the Week
The fabric of the week this week is the Claret Shades Pack. Shades Packs are 5 fat quarters in 5 shades of the color. If you order more than one set it will be custom dyed in larger cuts for you. I probably should have named this one Cranberry because it's a beautiful cranberry red! It's 20% off through Sunday.
New Stash Pack
One of the most popular Stash Packs was Canyonland in coppery oranges. As soon as it sold out I knew that I had to quickly dye a new set and Copper Mine is it! Stash Packs were designed with art quilters in mind. They have 10 fat eighths of very textured hand dyed fabrics. They are perfect for landscape quilts.
But I'm not an art quilter and I love the Stash Packs for scrappy traditional quilts, like this Hunter Star quilt made with the Crossroads and Good Earth Stash Packs.
You can check out Copper Mine and all the other Stash Packs in the shop.

Sounds like you are hard at work! Those tea towels are so cute! The Claret fabric gradients are so pretty and so is the new copper mine pack.

I have discovered that I love hand dyed fabrics in traditionally pieced quilts. They add so much richness and visual texture to the finished quilt.

Good to see you back, and happy you and family had a nice, relaxing time together. Your copper mine fabrics remind me of beautiful, glowing sunsets and will grace many an art piece, I'm sure. Anxious to see what you've been reading this month.

Your tea towel fundraiser is a great idea - something useful and pretty in exchange for funds to help out. A win/win!
