Loads more exciting fabrics have arrived in the shop this week, so here’s a sneaky peak of what you can expect to see in store. From rabbits and sunrises to giant gold polka dots, we’ve got a luscious new range of inspiring prints that will have you planning your next sewing projects right away.

We can’t get over just how lovely this gorgeous collection of rabbits on a Japanese style landscape is, and the contrast between orange and blue, and purple and grey is simply delicious. With a two complementary blenders to add to the mix, this is a super inspiring collection and we can’t wait to see what you make from it. Clair’s already thinking about running up a kimono dress from the blue version …

Rich pinks, bright turquoise and luxurious gold are at the heart of this collection: it’s full of simple but gorgeous designs and the added element of the gold hints will make you fall completely in love with all the prints, whether you want just spots, floral outlines or patchwork themed birds and hearts.

Want something more subtle? Go light and floaty with these delicate feather prints – perfect for clothing or homewear projects.

Fans of simple geometric shapes will be keen on these little crosses on neutral backgrounds: choose from black, red and light blue to make patchwork projects or maybe some men’s shirts or whatever else takes your fancy.

All our new fabrics are priced at £16.50 per metre. Emporia is open from 10am – 5pm Monday to Saturday, and from 10am to 2pm Farmers Market Sundays – the next one is Sunday 6th August, so come and say hello!

Brand New Fabrics

We’ve had so much brand spanking new stuff come in over the past couple of weeks that it’s difficult to remember what’s what, but we’ve singled out some of the loveliest bits to show you this week. More delicious fabric has never before been seen in one blog post we assure you. Hold onto your hats people, it’s going to be a roller coaster ride of newness!

First up are these super cute animal prints featuring cats, dogs, chickens, sheep and pigs. Their funny little faces just shout out to be made into bedroom curtains or bags for small people to carry their bits and bobs around with them. Available in blue or white backgrounds, we can see them being loved to death by the under sixes as they point out the different animals and make the appropriate woof or baa noises. Quick chorus of Old MacDonald anyone?

Butterflies feature in these gorgeous pink, turquoise, peach and yellow patterns from Makower. Ideal for bedding, quilts or decoration of any sort, these butterflies are perfect for grownups and little ones alike.

Speaking of grownups, we’re absolutely in love with these domestic goddess fabrics; covered with sewing machines, needles, cotton reels and lovely ladies wearing their trim little fifties dresses, these delightful retro style patterns are fantastic for anyone with a passion for vintage sewing. It makes us want to have another rummage through the vintage pattern collection next to the cutting table again, and see if we can’t whip up a little number by Vogue before teatime.

More domestic bliss comes courtesy of these handbags and shoes on a bright pink background, and a collection of dinky little domestic appliances – featuring whisks, scales, jugs, colanders, rolling pins and other kitchen paraphernalia.

The cooking themed one would make an amazing patchwork creation with these babies – gorgeous cupcake prints (just sold to a woman to make an apron – good thinking!) and these fifties style baking signs. Just right for a Great British Bake Off fan. All hail Mary Berry, for she will grace our screens once more this August!

And for those of you who like to be really super duper organised, we had our first set of Halloween prints arrive a couple of weeks ago. Lovely little Draculas, ghosts and Frankenstein’s monsters, alongside cheeky black cats and grinning pumpkins – they would make a very cool Trick or Treat bag; and the gloomy grey spiderwebs and boggly eyed spiders are spot on for decorations for 31st October too.
