What's New At Sew Inspired

We have the beautiful Mumseed Meadow collection by Rae Ritchie for Dear Stella in the shop! This fabric line captures the organic movement of lush prairies and secret woodlands, and takes you on a winding nature walk through the dancing trees, collecting bouquets and fallen leaves along the way.

ME + YOU have released a lovely collection of Ikat Wovens with Hoffman Fabrics in a range of indigo, black, cream and green. These wovens would be perfect for both quilts and clothing, and even bags! 

Jennifer Sampou has a new line of Studio Stash Yarn Dyes for Robert Kaufman. They have a lovely hand and give a great tone-on-tone texture to any quilt! We have several bolts of Yarn Dyes as well as pre-cuts (Ten-Square, 10" squares) in both the Warm and Cool story colorways.

The Mendocino collection was inspired Heather Ross's time in Northern California, and due to popular demand, Windham Fabrics has reprinted the entire line with a slight tweak and update to the colors. The beautiful collection is a favorite of sewists who love mermaids, seahorses and the sea.

Tula Pink has done it again! Her newest collection, Chipper for Free Spirit Fabrics, features adorable creatures like chipmunks and foxes, in rich hues of pinks, purples, greens, oranges and teals. The collection also has fun stripes and geometric prints.

Jen Kingwell has designed a beautiful line of fabrics for Moda called Behind the Scenes because every great production needs a supporting cast of background fabrics! Behind the Scenes features pindots, cross-hatch and geometric prints in taupe, gray, beige and brown that would make a perfect accompaniment for any collection.

The international phase of the first Arab-Israeli war took place after a UN General Assembly resolution recommending the partition of Palestine into separate Arab and Jewish states and Israel’s subsequent declaration of its status as an independent state on May 14, 1948. Cheap Jordan Shoes,Transjordanian forces were small but well-trained and professional. Abdullah initially assigned them the mission of taking control of all territory that had been allocated lor the Arab state in the partition of Palestine. The British were informed of this plan by General Glubb with British foreign Secretary Bevin responding, “It seems the obvious thing to do ... but do not go and invade the area allocated to the Jews.”, Later, the Jordanians departed from this plan and became involved in heavy fighting in Jerusalem, Air Jordan Shoes, which was projected to have been an international city under the UN resolution. This change in plan led to an increased use of the Arab Legion in exactly the sort of fighting that Glubb had hoped to avoid.

The Arab Legion commander considered the Jewish militia (Hagana) and strike force (Palmach) to be adept at urban combat in ways that his Bedouin troops were not. Unsurprisingly, both Israeli and Transjordanian casualties were heavy in the subsequent fighting within the city. King Abdullah claims to have refocused his efforts on Jerusalem in response to urgent appeals for rescue from Arabs living there, and thus directed his military away from a variety of more feasible missions. These statements probably do not reflect the full story. Abdullah is also known to have felt a special emotional tie to Jerusalem and may have believed he had a family responsibility to defend the Muslim holy sites from Israeli capture. As the fighting went forward, Retro Jordans, it quickly became apparent that Jerusalem would not be internationalized at the end of the war, and one side or the other would establish control over the area through military action.
