On the heels of last week‘s Euro-retro-folk-via-Japan print from Kokka, the newest iteration of Lecien‘s popular and ongoing My Folklore collection has just started arriving in stores.

New Puti de Pome by Kiyohara

How’s about some cute for your Monday morning? These are new cotton-linen prints in the ongoing Puti de Pome collection from Japanese manufacturer Kiyohara. They’re a little bit more expensive than other Japanese fabrics, but kind of irresistible, wouldn’t you say? These were spotted at Superbuzzy.

Japanese Fabric of the Week: Clover Cross Stitch Prints

These super cute prints are from Japanese sewing and knitting notions company Clover, and I’d love to know if they have plans for more fabrics and if we’ll be seeing them for sale in the U.S. I suppose these are meant for stitching over but I like them as they are. Spotted at Emi Craft [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Clothworks

Here’s what’s new from Clothworks. Designer Erin Ries caught my eye last market with the collection Milly. Her follow-up is called Paige, and it’s out this winter. Next up, Night and Day, a very contemporary turn by the usually traditional-leaning Skipping Stones Studio. And here’s the next group of Toy Poodle prints from the Japanese [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Seven Islands – Cocca

I didn’t find out what was up with the similar names, but the Seven Islands (the U.S. distributors of Kokka and other Japanese textile brands) booth was also showing a high-end, multi-purpose (but home-dec leaning) collection called Cocca, from a Tokyo-based shop/brand of the same name. The pictures don’t really capture the prints’ scale or [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Kokka – Melody Miller

It’s been a long road for Melody Miller, but her first fabric collection is finally seeing the light of day! Her vintage catalog-inspired Ruby Star Rising display felt extra triumphant and sparkly and awesome. Like Melody, old department store catalogs are a huge source of entertainment and inspiration for me (once upon a time had [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Kokka – Echino Fall 2010

Echino by Etsuko Furuya for Kokka always seems to be the most-photographed display at Quilt Market, so you’ve probably already seen these out there in blogland, but here it is in case you haven’t! The Fall 2010 main cotton-linen collection is already in stores — I think the oilcloths follow later. This collection is full [...]
