SBB + AGF December Box

Hey there, fabric friends!

Have you ever had that moment when you’re almost done sewing all your holiday gifts, and you realize that you forgot to add someone to your list? Don’t worry, it has happened to all of us! One great solution that can solve this issue is a fabric subscription. Who wouldn’t love receiving fabrics every month, right?

Speaking of fabric subscriptions, we’re so excited that our friends at Stash Builder Box are featuring our fabrics again. Yay! Which means that if you and your friends love AGF and helping kids in need, this is a great time to get the December box. The month’s box features 3 yards of prints from Maureen Cracknell’s newest collection Garden Dreamer, a spool of Aurifil thread, a quilt pattern, and a cute pencil. But what truly makes me happy about this box is that the proceeds will go to the Give Kids the World Village. This is a non-profit resort that provides week long cost-free vacations to kids with life-threatening illnesses.

December stash builder box

Since we’re in the season of giving, Stash Builder Box has generously donated their December box and we’re giving it away to one lucky winner! The giveaway will run until Tuesday, December 20th. To enter the giveaway simply fill out the form below.

If you would like to receive a lovely box from Stash Builder Box or would like to gift one to a friend, visit the SBB website.  To receive this month’s box featuring AGF you must put in your order before December 15th. Any subscription placed after the 15th will receive next month’s box.

We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!

The Wondrous World of Blithe by Katarina Roccella

Hello fabulous makers!

Isn’t it crazy how we’re only a few days away from the first day of winter? Unlike us in South Florida, many of you are already experiencing colder weather. One thing that’s great about the cool temperatures is that you feel more encouraged to stay indoors and sew! This is the perfect time to work on all your UFO’s, start new cozy quilts, and sew all kinds of winter garments.

One collection that’s ideal for winter is Blithe by Katarina Roccella. This beautiful collection is filled with frosty trees, confident deer, and subdued colors that will have you sewing in a winter wonderland. We must admit that this season, we’ll be experiencing winter vicariously through this collection.

ArtGalleryFabrics_Blithe_PJs_3

One thing I truly love about Blithe is that it was inspired by a beautiful quote from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”  Katarina beautifully translates this quote visually through her use of grays, deep plum, and cool shades of blue.

We prepared a wondrous look book for you to feast your eyes on mesmerizing quilts, comfy garments, and classy home décor. Check it out!

 

Oh, And this "Windowscape" FREE QUILT PATTERN is waiting for you to sew it! Doesn't it look cozy?

Sew Cheerfully with Here Comes the Fun by Sew Caroline

HereComesTheFun_banner

Hey fabulous makers!

The other day I had a thought… trends come and go but colors are always cool. There’s something so interesting about mixing and matching bright colors to create modern sewing masterpieces. Colors can change the mood of any project and if you choose vibrant hues, all your projects will instantly exude joy.

One collection that screams happiness is Here Comes the Fun by Sew Caroline. This collection is filled with happy lyrics, bold brush strokes inspired by street art, and whimsy florals that will simply make you smile when you sew with these prints. I personally have a special connection with this fun collection because it reminds me of the Arts District in Miami called Wynwood. The bright colors in this collection and especially the “Improv Strokes” print remind me of the beautiful murals that line the streets of that neighborhood.

I can already envision modern color block quilts and tons of children’s clothes with this youthful collection. Caroline has shown off her bubbly personality in her designs once more!

The Denim Studio by AGF has grown!

Hello fabulous makers!

I hope you’re having a great week. We recently returned from Quilt Market in Houston and we are extremely inspired to start releasing all the upcoming collections for this season. While being at market I had the opportunity to speak to tons of business owners and makers. One thing I found in common with all of them was their adoration for the Denim Studio. This was great to hear because this substrate allows makers to think outside the box when they sew.

ArtGalleryFabrics_TheDenimStudio2_Pillows_6_new

For this reason, we have added tons of new denim prints and a variety of textures for you to have fun with! Check them out!

Denim swatches

If you haven’t sewn with our denim yet, I highly recommend it because it’s so versatile. At first thought most people just think of jeans when they hear the word denim. But in reality you can make anything with this substrate! Check out the lookbook we’ve prepared for you featuring projects with our new denims. You’ll fall in love with all the garments, quilts, and home décor!

 

To view a few close ups of these yummy fabrics, get inspired with this little video. I'm completely in love with the floral pants and the unique texture of the crosshatch denim! ;)

And of course, to start sewing with all the wonderful new denims, enter the giveaway! Have a chance to win a mixed bundle of the new additions to the Denim Studio.

Let the Sewing Month Festivities Begin!

Hey there!

Isn’t it crazy how time flies? It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the New Year and in a blink of an eye, it’s already September. Here at the AGF HQ were quite fond of this month because it’s dedicated to the craft of sewing! For those of you who don’t know, September is National Sewing Month here in the US.

In 1982, President Ronald Regan declared September as the official month for sewing to recognize the importance of the craft in people’s homes. We must admit, your families are super lucky to have you in their lives. It’s not often that you find someone that is creative who can make a beautiful quilt, mend and sew garments, and most importantly make handmade gifts! To celebrate our favorite hobby, passion, and the fact that sewing makes us feel more alive, we have prepared a few activities for you!

In addition to releasing our newest collections, Lagom by AGF Studio and Heartland by Pat Bravo; our AGF Sewcialite Mister Domestic will be hosting 2 sew alongs! YAY!

Here’s what’s coming your way:

Nocturnal Beauty Comes to Life with Nightfall Fabrics

Hey Everyone!

No matter what part of the world you live in, we can all agree that there is something peaceful about gazing at the night sky while the stars twinkle at us. But most people don’t realize that there’s much more to the night than stars.  As the sun goes down to make way for the moon’s smile, nocturnal critters appear to start their day.  

The hoot of owls fill the air as the hymn from crickets crescendo in the distance. Fire flies dance in the darkness and small creatures jump from the trees and rejoice in the delicate moonlight, until another day comes by. This nocturnal beauty is brought to life in Maureen Cracknell’s newest collection, Nightfall.

Maureen plays homage to the creatures and wonders of the late hours in this striking collection! She shows off prints filled with moons, owls, and cute night critters while showing off her bohemian style.

Fabric swatches

I personally think, that the concept of this collection is beautiful because many times we overlook all the natural wonders that occur at night. Plus, it simply feels mystical! When I look at some of these prints I can imagine myself as a gypsy roaming through the forest…but I digress XD
