  • New Colette Pattern Images

    Colette Patterns have released a new set of model shots for their first range of excellent sewing patterns - Beignet, Eclair, Parfait, Chantilly and Macaron.

    The new images show the versatility of the patterns and the details of the garments much more clearly. They give the range a whole new light and summery look.

    We have all the Colette Patterns in stock (except for the two new lingerie patterns which are sailing across the ocean to us at this very minute) so have a look at them - or a second look if you weren't sure abut them the first time - in our Patterns section here.

  • Cloud 9 - 'Beyond the Sea'. 6 new organic cotton prints...


    These 6 lovely prints are part of the most recent range from Cloud 9. Inspired by the seaside and featuring whimsical anenomes, sea urchins, sand dollars and sandpipers, these lovely soft, organic fabrics would be perfect for summer holiday beach outfits. Have a better look at the range here.

    We think they make such a pretty group that they've become our first Fat Quarter Bundle - a way of buying smaller pieces of fabric in a group of complementary designs. This is obviously just the job if you want to make a quilt or any other patchwork type project and we apologise to you quilters out there for having a dressmaking slant here at Ray Stitch and being a bit slow to cotton (!) on to this great idea. We've got the message now. The fabulous Quilt exhibition at the V and A (you can still catch it until the 4th July, info here) has had universal appeal and been really inspirational for a lot of people, we've had lots of requests for bundles -  so bundles it is. Also check out our new eco-friendly quilt wadding.

    As well as 'Beyond the Sea', we have bundled the previous Cloud 9 range 'My Happy Garden' (which contains the last of the lovely 'Flock', now out of stock and sadly gone for good) Both contain 6 x Cloud 9 prints plus 2 x Ray Stitch organic plains. 8 quarters in all for £25.00. Take a look at them here. And watch this space for more FQ bundles coming soon.
