We could not be more delighted by the arrival of Wonderland by Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton and Steel! A few years ago, Anna Rifle Bond was asked by Puffin Books to illustrate the 150th anniversary edition of the classic novel Alice in Wonderland.
The Wonderland collection brings her nearly 80 hand paintings to Cotton and Steel fabrics, including quilting cottons, lawns, cotton/linen canvases and rayons.
In this beautiful collection, Alice falls into the rabbit hole to a world of tea parties and enchanted forests, meeting a well-known cast of characters along the way. Find Wonderland in the shop here.
The follow up to last year’s Bluebird line, SS Bluebird is a collaborative collection that puts a nautical spin and fun red accents into the mix of blue-hued designs. We just adore the prints we’re stocking – the letters, the apples, the anchor-heart print. They are all so much fun! Find SS Bluebird in the shop here.
This year’s collaborative Black and White collection features neon pink accents and some of our favourite designs – retro roller skates, pink-cheeked cats and curious bears! Find Black and White 2017 in the shop here.
We have restocked our favourite Cotton and Steel Basics – Netorious and Sprinkle – and added the new Add It Up basic! These handy fabrics coordinate with the Cotton and Steel collections and are perfect for quilt projects. Find all of our Cotton and Steel Basics in the shop here.
Sleep Tight is a gender-neutral collection inspired by what babies might dream about, and it features lots of cute animals and pops of fun colours. We’re especially fond of this large scale panel, which can be used for whole cloth quilts (the one below is from the Sleep Tight booth at fall Quilt Market) and soft toys! Find Sleep Tight in the shop here.
We are thrilled that Emma Block will be teaching her contemporary brush lettering workshop at our West Hampstead shop in 19 April! This class will focus on developing skills and learning techniques allowing you to grow in confidence and start to develop your own brush lettering style. We’ll start with exercises to practice making shapes, creating lines of different thicknesses and using different brushstrokes. You’ll then practice writing the alphabet, words and phrases with plenty of help and guidance on hand. You will be given a complete set of materials which you can take away after class, including guide sheets, a brush and a pot of indian ink. Plus you’ll learn how to photograph your brush lettering using just your iPhone to create a unique piece of digital artwork! Find out more and sign up here.
