Amy Butler channels Hiroshige in this great rasterized print from her new Glow collection! Huge violas on a bold blue background, new from Alexander Henry... Great new geckos soaking up the Southwestern motifs like chameleons!  An opulent print reminiscent of stained glass, the perfect companion for almost any Christmas project!

Cowboy Quilt Challenge Deadline Extended

We want you to get out and enjoy your summer, so we have agreed to extend the deadline for ThreadBear's Cowboy Quilt Challenge until September 30th. That gives you an additional two months to finish a quilt (of at least 140 inches around its perimeter) evoking the life, landscape or history of the cowboy of yesterday or today. Or if you just have too many plans to finish a brand-new quilt, you can also submit last year's cowboy quilt. Just call or email ThreadBear for more details.

ThreadBear Is Going on the Road

If you aren't fortunate enough to live here in northern New Mexico, you can still experience our fun and unique fabric and yarn in person this summer. ThreadBear will be at the Southern New Mexico Festival of Quilts in Alamogordo on July 17th-18th and at the terrific Los Alamos Piecemakers Guild show on September 25th-26th. These are both must-see events for quilters--the great Australian art quilter Pam Holland is, as always, the star attraction in Alamogordo; and the Los Alamos Piecemakers put on one of the best small guild shows in the Southwest. We hope everyone will come out and enjoys the shows...and please stop in and say hello to the Bear!
