Alewives Fabrics  Rhea & crew. We sell spectacular fabrics from a big red barn in Midcoast Maine. We ❤️ Lucy Boston, EPP & delightfully schizophrenic fabric stacks.

You know it’s the big time when you’ve got your own salad dressing! (Greg Morton is catering the workshops with Charlotte Hamlin this week and those students are in for a delicious feast!) .

Block printing is white hot and we’re crazy for it! Not only did we just receive several copies of @jenhewett’s new book Print, Pattern, Sew, but we are also hosting Charlotte Hamlin, Professor of Textile Arts at UMass Dartmouth, for a block printing workshop on Tuesday the 14th. We’ll learn how to cut our own lino-blocks, the basic principles of repeat, and then print yardage! I cannot wait to make my own prints! Workshop is from 10-4, price is $95 (includes *most* materials and a delicious lunch catered by Greg Morton of Morton’s Fork Catering🍴) and there are still spots available! Call us at 207-563-5002 with your credit card numbers handy or stop by the shop tomorrow to sign up. First three images are from Charlotte Hamlin, next images are all from Jen Hewett’s book. Start dreaming of what your block print design will look like!

Thank you! (For what?) For NOT ONE PERSON asking where this week’s Lucy Boston kit was, despite me posting at 10 pm! Did you know I was out living it up, enjoying summer? (I was). And thank you to Dawn and Emily for making this week’s blocks while I was taking the Denyse Schmidt workshops. These are some seriously gorgeous blocks! (I’m guessing this one is Emily @sassy_matilda ’s block???). This week’s kit features fabrics from @TulaPink, @AnnaMariaHorner (for @FreeSpiritFabrics), @Cotton+Steel and @CamelotFabrics. Kits are $19.95 each and include four fat quarters (one of each fabric we used), 100 one inch honeycomb papers, plus instructions on English paper-piecing and fussy-cutting.
