April Feature Fabrics

APRIL FEATURE FABRICS: Every year a team from Hoffman Fabrics chooses an upcoming fabric design and then issues a challenge to quilt, clothing and doll makers to create an original item using the fabric. The challenge curator and a group of assistants jury the entries and a select team of judges chooses the award winners. The juried quilts, clothing and doll collections then travel to be exhibited by quilt and other fiber guilds, shops, museums and textile shows in nearly 200 locations.

Grandma's featured fabrics for April contain the Challenge piece plus nine other Hoffman fabrics to go with it. You'll love playing with these fabrics!

Carly and the Flowers

Carly and the Flowers

We live in the foothills of the Oregon Coastal Range. It's not a real high elevation, but high enough so that when everyone else's daffodils have come and gone, ours are just getting started. Here's a picture of Carly the cat with a daffodil in our front yard. She's welcoming Spring and looking for trouble.


Welcome to the first post of In Grandma's Attic, a blog devoted all things about Grandma's Attic Sewing Emporium. You'll find all of the great information about the quilt products, sewing supplies, and overall "crafty" goodness that you've come to enjoy from our store. We've got the know to sew, the itch to stitch, and the lilt to quilt. If you're like us, you should love our new blog.
