Hoffman Challenge 2016: Crystalia... And Me + You Batiks

Renewed, refreshed, reinvented and realigned for today. Hoffman Fabrics has chosen the best of the best for their Hoffman Challenge 2016. It'll be the first time they are offering a digitally printed fabric as the Challenge Fabrics, and in two versions -- black and white! The 2016 Challenge Fabric is style #N4240 from the Crystalia collection.

For the first time ever, Hoffman has added a Home Decor category, and this year's theme is kitchen and tabletop.

Detailed information, contest directions and an online entry form are available on their website. Registration will open at midnight CST on January 1, 2016.

In the studio on Saturday November 14, 2015, we will have special guest Stephanie Prescott, Director of Sales and Merchandising, Hoffman-California International Fabrics with us at Saturday Sampler. She will share the newest Me+You batik lines, and more! (Limited extra seating available for non-Saturday Sampler participants, so you must RSVP!)

We currently have 20 bolts of the gorgeous Me+You batiks in the shop... with more to come! Me+You is designed for the contemporary and modern quilter, and is about new energy and individuals while honoring the traditions and roots of those pioneers who came before.

What's New At Sew Inspired

Want to make this adorable tuffet? Instructor Denise Dayton will be in our studio for four sessions starting in January to teach students how to make one! Students will be required to purchase an upholstery kit and pattern from Denise, and Sew Inspired will have a variety of legs to order prior to class. If you'd like to sign up for one of the classes or find out more information, please call us at the shop at 860-651-8885. 

Brenda Walton's debut collection for Blend Fabrics is called Flora & Fauna, a nostalgic mix of nineteenth century florals and charming vintage imagery. It is a treasure trove of layered botanical illustrations and softly aged textures complimented by romantic calligraphy and elegant flourishes. 

We've restocked a few bolts by Alison Glass from her Ex Libris and Sun Print collections! 

We've also got Marsha McCloskey's newest collection for Clothworks called Chocolate & Cherry. The collection features elegant florals, dots and geometric patterns in beautiful reds, creams, pinks and browns. We also have her Massachusetts Cross and Crown quilt made from this collection kitted, ready for you to start sewing.
