When it rains it snows...

It's true isn't it? When it rains it snows... Just like the seneca shirtings arrived last week - we now welcome Shirtings 1875-1900 by Terry Clothier Thompson into the store. These are actually conversation prints. Women's day dresses and men's shirts were made from these prints. The conversation prints are so-named as they allowed prompted topics for conversation. We have to remember it was a time where one needed to talk only on topics that were considered "proper" *sniff*...
This is our selection. Prints are priced at $22 per metre. I love to use shirtings as backgrounds for applique or as scrappy light accents.
I recommend the fat eighth pack: 12 fat 1/8s = 1.5 metres for $33.
