If you haven't worked with vintage kimono silk, I think it's time!  It washes and irons beautifully, and the colours and designs are fabulous. I've priced the vintage unused silk at $13.95/M .  Check the Kimono silk fabric photos to see some of the silk.



Quilting is an activity that attracts people of all ages. One way to guarantee that your quilt will be a success is by making sure you have the right tools and materials. It's easy to feel overwhelmed and uncertain when purchasing quilting fabrics and tools. There is so much on the market and many choices in every category! My studio store, Quilter's Dream Fabrics, specializes in Asian and Batik quilting cottons, and books and notions related to creating quilts with those beautiful fabrics.  At this studio I will ensure that you get solid advice on what you need to make a great quilt and help with fabric selection, design, piecing and quilting techniques.

New Kits...
"Mine to Design" 
Vintage Kimono Silk Kits

Each kit contains 10 M of vintage silk, generally three fabric pieces of about 4M, 3M, and 3M.  Each kit is sufficient to make a 52" x 70" quilt with binding. The kits provide the material and the inspiration; you get to provide your own design!  Here's the link to a brand new set of kits...


 



Some new Asian panels, many new Bali's, new arrivals of vintage kimono silk, new arrivals of Robert Kaufman linen/cotton blend, new quilting gloves, and some beautiful new kits... come visit soon!

I've added a document that will contain my stories of Japan... I'll update it as I send new emails to my customer list... each such email containing one small story of the strange surprises I encountered in my short trip to Japan.  Here's the document link...


I've developed several new patterns and associated kits.  Please check them out in the Kits available section of my website.
