The range SOFT RERSPONSE is designed by Shell Rummel for Coats Fabrics. There are 15 fabrics in charcoal, grey and clove colours. $27.90 per metre.  These fabrics will look good in quilts and home decor.


Designer Shell Rummel has been a successful and established presence in the fine art, wedding and stationery markets for nearly 20 years. Passionate about designing beautiful products that honor her distinctive design aesthetic, Shell’s focus is on building the Shell Rummel brand’s presence within home decor markets which includes working with world class licensing partners in bedding, bath textiles, rugs, tabletop, accessories and fabric by the yard.

The hallmarks of the brand are tranquil, sophisticated and gracefully fluid art and design, unified by her signature painterly style. Watercolors are the preferred medium for this award-winning artist, and the unpredictability of painting with water often results in surprising variations and subtle imperfections, which make Shell’s patterns so beautifully unique. There is an inherently organic, natural quality as well as a softly refined feel to Shell’s designs. Her livable collections are both comfortable and contemporary at the same time.

Ever inspired by the fluid grace of nature, Soft Repose pays homage to subtle patterning and graceful lines. It’s a livable collection of soft, graceful, organic designs and its quiet palette features a full range of tonal grays, enhanced by the unique translucence of hand painted watercolors.


A new range of 29 fabrics from this very popular fabric designer. The fabric is at $27.80 per metre and wil blend easily with many of Tula's previous fabrics, as usuall the range features her traditiuonal animals. In her own words..

I have often remarked that the only animals I will never put on fabric are domestic pets. So, naturally, I couldn't help myself and immediately began to draw the ultimate pet, a cat. Tabby Road is the illustrated adventures of a fabulously sophisticated polka-dotted house cat with flare to spare and her sassy striped kitty sister. These two crazy kittens spend their days climbing delightfully proportioned banded fruit trees, chasing mice up and down elegant acanthus leaves for sport, coughing up brightly colored fur balls and ending their days with bellies full of artisan-crafted consciously canned, organic cat snacks. If ever there was a cat to envy, this is the one. Tabby Road is the life of the common house cat as seen through my eyes, transformed into an imaginary world of quirk and color, mischief and mayhem.

Tula's newest fabric collection, Chipper, is about the warm sun on her face, hair gently blowing in the wind and the scent of fresh cut grass. Chipper is carefree and relaxed. It’s a midday summer nap. It is the break that we all deserve but never take. Designing fabric is a lot like meditation; She gets to imagine the place that she most wanted to be at that moment and bring it to life in fabric. This is a happy place where she might sit under the shade of a great old tree and watch the world go by without a care in the world. She designed Chipper to be both refreshing and vibrant with tons of details and a fantasy color palette of mints, oranges, pinks and plums with undertones of cool grays and lime greens.  This colection as usual features a number of animals incorporated in the various designs.  $26.30 per metre,
Many of the fabrics in this range combine easily with fabrics in the previous range EDEN of which we still have good stocks.


A  range of 25 fabrics by ppoular young designer TULA PINK and manufactured by Free Spirtit Fabrics.

The price is $25.60 per metre whichis not as expensiver vas some other recent fabric releases.


Tula has said the following about this collection on the Free Spirit web pages--

People often wonder why I draw animals. The answer is simple, it is because I don’t understand them. An elephant cannot tell me her story, a tiger will never stop to chat about the weather, a giant Atlas moth will never land on my shoulder to inform me of what intrigue lies on the path ahead and a flower will never ask me if I would like a stick of gum. It is these little interactions with people that allow us to know each other or at least open a door to that possibility. Eden is an exploration of nature's mystery and wonder. It is about pattern and texture overgrown, unkempt and unconfined. While the daily coming and going of life, people, bills and paperwork pile up there is always that place in my mind that I can retreat to that remains wild and free. Eden is a snapshot of that imagined place made real in fresh, vivid color. For me Eden is both a retreat and a reminder to leave a little room at the end of the day to embrace the mystery and take time to wonder. Albert Einstein may have said it best when he wrote, "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” Eden is about keeping our eyes open and maybe seeing that there is more there than we originally thought.
