Eric & I just returned from our Maine motorcycle trip. It was quite a vacation filled with adventure & good times but one of my highlights was meeting the fabulous girls of Alewives! I stopped in just to take a peek at their shop since I have heard so many wonderful things about them but of course I chatted away about fabric & sewing & left feeling like I had just spent the morning with friends. It was so reassuring to meet another shop owner who has a modern twist on sewing.I think we could have talked for hours! Very cool girl! If you are ever traveling the mid-coast of Maine I would highly recommend stopping by Alewives & saying hello to Rhea.
A ton of boxes arrived from Seven Islands this week & as I opened them I realized that I was in fabric heaven…
The entire line of Far Far Away II is in plus more Nani Iro gauze prints, including stripes –which I LOVE!! I seriously will have to try & pace myself as I figure out what it is I will be creating with all of this lovely fabric!
Ashley from Film in the Fridge was kind enough to loan us a few of her quilts to show off for the month of June. If you have never visited Ashley’s blog before–you must! Her quilts are a fresh take on modern quilting & are always made from the latest collections of designer fabrics. Right now at nido you can view quilts made from Anna Maria Horner’s Little Folks Voile collection, Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley and Laurie Wisbrun’s Tufted Tweets. What a treat to see them in person & of course very inspirational as well!
