This polka dot sweatshirt-looking heathered knits from rakuten.co.jp are adorable! I don’t know the first thing about the site but there is always a lovely reader or two who chimes in on international shipping and such things. (via Japanese Sewing Books)
With simple geometrics and neon colors being so of-the-moment, maybe people will take a second look at traditional woven fabrics from Mexico. I don’t know what I’d do with these, but I’m really attracted to them. Ideas?
All these and many more can be found at MexFabricSupplies on Etsy.
Valley View is Saffron Craig’s newest organic cotton collection for Fern Textiles in Australia. It is composed of eight prints in a bright spring/summer palette of pink, yellow, purple, and black, with elements of mod 1960s, cross stitch, and (as always!) the Australian landscape. There is a cheater print and a signature Saffron border print too.They are available directly from the Saffron Craig website, and coming very soon from Honey Be Good in the U.S.
Robert Kaufman and Spoonflower have rejoined forces for another round of Fabric8, a contest to discover eight bold, modern designers. The ultimate winner gets a fabric collection with Robert Kaufman and a Wacom digital drawing tablet. The theme is Geek Chic, and they’ve made a Pinterest Board to get your ideas flowing.

I always look forward to getting Vlisco’s emails, and lately there seems to be something new and exciting every week from them, it’s been hard to keep up! They are active on Pinterest which allows more access to their always-gorgeous campaigns and look books, essential to understanding the scale and look of these fabrics. Some other good news is that they are now selling select fabrics through their web shop in two- and four-yard lengths, where the minimum order used to be six-yard lengths of any one fabric.
Bright, bold color is of course at the heart of the new Jeu de Couleurs collection, but it also represents their unique interpretation of the geometrics trend (with some eggs thrown in). Also check out the coordinating accessories line which includes some incredible silk scarves.
