Pat Bravo at The Village Haberdashery

The Village Haberdashery was the place to be on Saturday as Pat Bravo, founder and owner of Art Gallery Fabrics, was visiting to show case their upcoming fabric collections.

Pat showing some of the fabrics from the forthcoming Geometric Bliss collection.
Art Gallery Fabrics was born from a desire to provide modern fabric designs in quality fabrics.  Pat explained that their fabrics have a much higher thread count which is what makes them softer and drape so beautifully (so that’s their secret). 
I am fan of their squared elements range and it is my go-to fabric for binding.  It comes in such a fantastic range of colours and they co-ordinate so well with the other collections.   
Of the many new collections coming out soon, my favourite is Cherie.

It is a romantic collection of greys, pinks and pale turquoise that is just lovely.  This one is definitely on my shopping list.

In addition to the fabulous quilting fabrics, Art Gallery Fabrics also includes some knit fabrics and voiles in each collection.

The knit fabrics are a good weight and include a small amount of spandex to prevent bagging.  The designs are gorgeous too and would make fabulous t-shirts, children’s clothes and dresses.

Rather than being sheer, the voiles resemble a lawn fabric and combine a soft, silky feel with the easy care of cotton.  They are just prefect for summer dresses and pyjamas.

It was wonderful to have the opportunity to meet Pat and to see at first hand the lovely collections that are due later in the year.

Many thanks to Pat for an inspirational presentation and to Annie from The Village Haberdashery for organising the event.
