Many New Pieces customers and staff are originally from colder climes — and almost all of us are grateful not to be traveling anywhere east of Pleasant Hill this week. New Pieces has also had many wonderful and dynamic out-of-town visitors this week. They seem happy to be missing the weather they left behind, and to really enjoy the cool, clear February weather we earned after all last week’s foggy gray.
That said – We’ve been having a blizzard of sorts at New Pieces, too. Between the extra visitors and our usual, busy schedule, Staff has barely been able to keep up with the flow of bolts of new fabric coming in the door. Its been overwhelming and wonderful.
It’s hard to capture the excitement in words, or even pictures, but here’s a quick peek at this year’s February Blizzard.
There are Free Spirit fabrics, from Jane Sassaman and Jay McCarroll; there are amazing Asian prints including adorable lions, elephants and bears. There are more bunnies….
A huge order from Trans – Pacific included these bolts of lava cloth. Brilliant colors, 100% cotton – but with a slight texture.
Among the arrivals in “juvenile” fabrics were these few, including additions to our turtle, owl and bug offerings.
To round out today’s peek at the “symphony of color”, there’s a jazz combo in blacks and white.
Stay tuned, or come in — there is more to show!
