The Clothworks booth really caught my eye. They were one of the few booths to showcase a modern, all solids, quilt and that choice allowed their organic solids to shine (ETA: Lizzy pointed out that this is her mom Cherry House‘s City Scapes pattern … thanks Lizzy!)
Clothworks’ Everyday Organic Solids are 100% GOTS certified and come in seven bright, saturated colors.
The solids, along with a print collection, will ship in August.
The organic prints were designed by Alyssa Thomas of Penguin & Fish and are very cute. Alyssa did an amazing job of translating her embroidery designs into fabric.
Penguin and Fish also had a booth of their own. The embroidered pillows were particularly charming — Alyssa said that she blew up the embroidery designs on a copy machine and used yarn instead of embroidery thread. So clever!
Clothworks had some other great lines as well.
Critters by Ellen Crimi-Trent:
Floral Folio by Cary Phillips:
Lily & Peony by Skipping Stones Studio:
Spring Umbrellas by Masha D’yans:
Finally, Clothworks has some fabrics both designed and produced in Japan. As a bonus, these will retail at a price point similar to the usual price point — no import premium. The lines include wovens and prints of classic Japanese embroidery.
All the above fabrics ship in July or August.
