There couldn’t be a more perfect summer-time collection than Arcadia. The darling butterflies, big daisies and super-cool mushrooms remind us of what summer days are all about. Plus, we love the two colourways of pinks and blues. Perfect for mixing together on a warm day.

Arcadia is from Cloud 9 Fabrics and is 100% organic cotton.

Ipanema is the latest fabric in from one of our favourite fabric companies, Birch Fabrics. It combines a few really great things into one fabric collection: Tiki, VW Vans and Ukeleles.

The staff at Spool of Thread has been the ukelele sort for the last few years. I think our uke love peaked at the Christmas of 2012, when 3 Ukeleles were given to or from our staff as Christmas presents ! There have been talks about forming a band, but nothing official has happened yet. We’ll let you know if it does. At the very least, I think we need to host a bring-your-ukelele-to-work day, and have our ukes hang out with Ipanema.


If you’ve never heard of Birch Fabrics, or seen their fabric in person, you gotta check it out! Birch Fabrics’ designs are always a great mix of whimsy and modern design. ¬†Plus, they work great when you are trying to match a few different fabrics together. Throughout their collections, Birch tries to use a similar colour palette, so often a print from the newest collection will pair nicely with an older collection. Win win! And, beyond all the awesome ways they design their fabric, Birch’s fabric is 100% organic, GOTS certified. Nothing wrong with that!

We’ve uploaded photos of all of the designs in the Ipanema collection onto our Facebook page.
