It's a Set!

Once the designing bug gets's impossible to ignore.  I'm surrounded by fabric that I buy for my fabric department at The Grove, and of course I only buy what I like!  So-o-o, I just can't keep my hands off them!  I've designed a new Tote Bag, it crosses boundaries from Beaders to Knitters to those who are courageous enough to carry a multi-print bag! Let's just say they ARE colorful!

The prints just didn't stay put on the bag, but jumped into a beadmat for beaders and then into a thread catcher (for both beaders, knitters and sewers).  

 Gypsy Flower

This sold really quickly...the thread catcher is gone already, but I've created a new line of thread catchers that will you'll see if you're in Milwaukee in June at the Bead and Button Event.  I'll be in booth 410.  After the show you can find them on my website: and in The Grove!

Parson Gray

Last year textile designer Amy Butler's  husband decided to enter into the textile design business.  An accomplished musician, he started creating a different kind of music, using fiber instead of notes.  His line is called Parson Gray and is a wonderful collection of pale blues, greys, creams and blacks infused with a definite masculine slant! 

I've brought into The Grove, 3 bolts of my favorite Parson Gray prints....Trade Blanket, Coral Reef and Cocoons!

He's made the scarf out of Trade Blanket and Cocoons is on lower left square on the back ground.

Below is one of Amy's booth's at the they say..."opposites attract"!

Day of the Dead Fabric is In!

Calaveras From Alexander Henry
 They've been on order for months, and finally, have arrived!  The most popular fabric in my collection at The Grove every October....Calaveras!  This time it's sprinkled with a little (just a touch) of gold bling and the skulls are striking against a midnight black background.  Great for draping over your table for October Parties or creating a cool shirt or gypsy skirt to welcome the one night each year that the dead "officially" visit our planet!

Indigo Skulls is a new design this year I just couldn't resist!  Navy blues and reds outline the laughing skulls on a warm cream background!  A friend saw it last week and is already measuring windows in her new apartment for this edgy fabric.

Don't know how to sew?  Try "Steam a Seam" for hems...all you have to have is an iron and you ready to make curtains, napkins, placemats, table runners...I could go on and on.  

But maybe you would rather do a little hand stitching?

Then try your hand at embroidery transfers and tattoo Skulls and Zombies or Monster designs on your towels, arm bands, head bands, shirts....

All you need is a little fabric, some embroidery floss, hoop and a needle  -
all available at
judipatuti fabrics at The Grove.

Leo Has Friends!

A few weeks ago three brave sewers ventured into the land of sewing curves and creating manes to make Leo the Lion a few new friends at The Grove! Although they didn't quite have their "stuffing" yet, the fabrics and color choices made Leo "Roar with Pleasure"!

Kendal, Michelle and Olivia promised to bring Leo's friends back to play once their button eyes are sewn on and their tails have just the right amount of yarn for "swishing"!

Kendal's Lion - love the split colored mane!

Michelle's son hand picked his lion's "coat" and will soon be hugging and loving him!

Pink mane with teal blue eye's were
Olivia's pick for her lion!

In no time at all the three will have "custom" Lions
Purrfect for Purring!
