The latest thread shipment arrived mid last week so we have been in a whirlwind behind the scenes here at Always Quilting.
It is always “all hands on deck” to get the cartons unpacked, and the stock shelved, as it is impossible to move until we get everything put away …… so apologies for the delay in responding to anyone who placed an order in the past week.
The fun part of unpacking is the first “real life” viewing of new products.
This time we got two new Designer Collections and Edyta Sitar’s Winter Essentials.
The colours in Edyta’s Winter Essentials perfectly mimic the start of wintery days here in Melbourne.
And the two new designer collections will be the antidote needed to brighten those dull days ahead.
Even more exciting, was to see the new colours that Aurifil has introduced to the Cotton Mako’ range for 2014.
At first glance they looked very similar to the existing greys, khakis & blues on the colour chart but then, with a closer examination, the subtle differences became obvious.
I can already see how well they will work with the new season fabrics.
I’ve found two colours for fabric swatches, left with us by a pattern designer for thread matching, and another colour would have been the perfect grey/brown to quilt a project that a customer brought into the store today.
We have a limited number of the new designer collections in stock but unfortunately we do NOT yet have spools of the new colours in stock.
However, watch this space after our next shipment arrives.
