Coats & Clark, Tim Holtz Announce Line of Quilt Fabric

Fans of Tim Holtz who also take part in sewing and quilting activities will have something to celebrate soon as Tim announced today a new partnership with Coats & Clark that will have him designing that company’s debut fabric line.

Coats & Clark is well-known to sewers and quilters for their thread and sewing notions, and lovers of knit & crochet for their Red Heart yarn and their Susan Bates brand needles & hooks. But fabric will be a new endeavor for Coats.

The new line, called Eclectic Elements, will feature 24 SKUs of fabric designs that will be familiar to Tim Holtz fans from his paper lines. Some of the designs are being produced in two different color tones, taupe and neutral (seen below). The 100% cotton fabric is 44″ wide and will be available on 15 yard bolts. For quilters, the fabric will be available in fat quarters, design rolls, 5” and 10” charm packs and fat eighths, while it is being marketed for papercrafters in 6″ and 12″ fabric crafting packs.

Welcome to Craft Critique’s New Home!

Some of you may have noticed things look a little different around here…it’s because we are now on WordPress instead of Blogger finally!

My apologies to any of you who may have experienced weirdness or errors last night with the site or feed during the transition. Feed subscribers may also unfortunately may have gotten a few old articles pushed to them during the transition due to a glitch.

But the new Craft Critique website is all up and working now! Please pardon our dust while we add the finishing touches to it now that it is live, and watch for new content coming next week from CHA!
