Spring update from Clarke and Clarke fabric

We've posted about Clarke and Clarke before.   If you  missed it, you can find it here.  A couple of weeks ago we got a box of their newest books, and it felt like Christmas and Spring wrapped into one!  The colors are so vibrant and cheerful that you really can't pick one favorite!
The small book of linen sheers just doesn't do the fabric justice, you need to see the larger picture:

I snapped some photos of the fabrics just to give you an idea of the clean lined patterns and clean colors.  If you like more muted tones, these might not be for you.  However, there are some heavily textured solid fabrics that would be great for upholstery or pillows, and they do have some more subtle colors. 
Here's the mix of books:

The next two photos show a "pocket weave" fabric.  The Clarke and Clarke website shows them being used for upholstery and drapery.

The cottons have almost a retro feel to them.  They mix enough colors together you're likely to find one of your favorites!

If you aren't into the retro feel, there are some other traditional prints, but with more updated colors.  Aqua and other blue tones are very strong this spring, which means there's a lot for  you to choose from!

Because of the cotton shortage last year, fabric prices are noticeably more since January.   That makes each choice even more important and most likely something you'll keep for awhile.  Come by and let us show you a quality fabric, and the newest designs.
