Ayumills’ Shop

Ayumi Takahashi (Pink Penguin)’s Etsy shop is small but well-curated. Some fabric you’ve never seen before, some fabric you may have seen before but maybe not through Ayumi’s eyes. She favors hard-to-find vintage reproductions, vintage-inspired, and text fabrics from Suzuko Koseki, Kumiko Fujita, Atsuko Matsuyama, and more from Yuwa, Kei, Lecien, and other manufacturers. I’m [...]

Moda: Made With Love

I had to point out this in-house mini-collection from Moda, Made With Love, in case you hadn’t seen it (they don’t do a lot of in-house print collections!) It’s been out for a little while now, so you fans of text and sewing-themed and retro prints, get it while it lasts. Made With Love was [...]

The Michael Miller Studios collections are still organized by theme — the color stories provide another way to group prints (and their new Cotton Couture solids) together [...]

Fabric Fives: Ayumi Mills

{ Ringo Pie Bee Block by Ayumi Mills } I’ve gotten such a great response to the Fabric Fives posts I’ve been doing with authors on blog tours, I thought I would expand it to include everyone whose sewing, quilting, or tastes in fabric I admire. Ayumi Mills of Pink Penguin was one of the [...]
