Shops that are stocking Cotton Shot!

Posted on Leave a comment

Hi there!

I’ve had a lot of emails about where people can locate my new line of basics – Cotton Shot!  Cotton Shot has the look of a shot cotton weave, but it is printed on a tight quilting cotton, so it is the perfect choice for embroiderers and quilters who are looking for a bit of texture, but nothing too overpowering.

There are 50 beautiful colors in this line, only some of which as shown above.

Although it is still early days and I’ll have a lot to add to this line in the future, I asked Benartex to send me a list of shops that ordered Cotton Shot directly this month.  Keep in mind it isn’t a complete list as I do not have access to distributor information which means that I don’t have access to the names of shops who might have ordered the collection from U.S. distributors or any international orders.  It is also early days for this new basics line but at least this is a place to start:

35th Avenue Sew & Vac
Sunshine Quilts
Quilt n’ Sew Connection

The French Seam

Once Upon a Quilt
The Inspired Sewist

Tiny Stitches
Thread Bear Fabrics

Tillie’s Quilts

Material Girls

The Quilted Cow

North Carolina
Creative Sewing Machines
Loving Stitches

Heavenly Stitches

Quilting Delights

Burkholders Fabrics


Sew Smart

If you are a shop, or you know of a shop, that is stocking this line, please let me know so I can add that information!  I really appreciate it as I want to support all the shops who are kind enough to support me!

There will be some fun new projects later this year, but in the meantime I’ve adapted some of my existing patterns to this group (see below) and you can find SKU information for them here.

Hope you enjoy sewing with Cotton Shot – stay safe and happy quilting!

Shops who ordered Nightingale and a Sample Sale of Quilts and Small Projects

Posted on 2 Comments

Hi everyone,

I hope you and your families are having a happy holiday season!  Like everyone else we are very busy over here – I haven’t even started decorating and getting ready for Christmas but at least I’m finally home after weeks on the road!  (Which is good also because I have fabric lines to draw too and that is impossible to do in a hotel room!)  My studio is overflowing with projects and I’ve put some in my online store – as hard as they are to part with I’m hoping they can make other people’s homes a little brighter this holiday season!  Many are magazine projects that I made but don’t remember the specifics of – it all sort of runs together, you know? So if you are interested please take a look here.

Secondly, I wanted to drop in with a report Benartex sent me of shops who ordered Nightingale.  As a reminder, there are three patterns designed specifically for this line: Night Garden, Salt Water Taffy, and Sunrise.

This is not a complete list because if they were sold through a distributor (like all international orders and many domestic are) I don’t have access to those records, but this should help those in the US looking for this fabric.  (As usual, if you are a shop not listed here or you are listed but under something other than your store name, please contact me and I’ll add you to the list.)

Shops stocking Celestial Lights Fabric

Posted on 3 Comments

Hi everyone!

Lots of you have asked me where you can find my Celestial Lights line for Contempo of Benartex.  It debuted at BERNINA University has just started shipping to shops that ordered it there and that is the information I have at the moment. It will be shipping more widely this fall.

Some of the patterns for Celestial Lights… Clockwise from the top left: Hometown, Constellations, the quilt from the Embroidery Panel Guide, the runner from from the Embroidery Panel Guide, Floret, and Stardust. (Not pictured here is the Ruler Panel Guide designed for the Brewer Every Oval Ruler Set, which just started shipping as well.)

You can order patterns through your local shop also if you are lucky enough to have one.  And if you don’t have a local shop you can find the patterns (including a pattern bundle at a discounted price) in my shop.

If you are looking for the embroidery collection, you can ask your local BERNINA dealer to order it directly through BERNINA.


Here are the shops that were the first to order the line at BERNINA University.  (Keep in mind this is not a complete list as I don’t have access to distributor information, which includes information for all non-US orders!):
