Some of you know that we have a new design team, Woolin Rouge.... I love their tag line: "A Cabaret of Folk Art Designs So Simple Anyone Can-Can do them! Anyway, their first design, Star Light, Snow Bright has been a huge hit! We sell out of them at every show!

We are awaiting a wool order so that we can put fabric kits together. BUT, we have had many requests for a non-wool kit, so we have put a batik kit together, and it is really cute!

The next offering from Woolin Rouge was Hippie Birdie, a tablerunner/placemat/napkin ring pattern made up of cottons and wools.

At Quilt Market these designs attracted the eye of Marianne Byrne-Goarin, an amazing French designer, whose book, Cinnamon Inspirations, is full of wonderful wool felt designs. She invited Woolin Rouge to design for her magazine, and the result is Holly Birdie:

Next up will be a fall version with Chickadees! I can't wait!!
