A is for Annabelle Fabric

Our new A is for Annabelle fabric has been unveiled on Facebook, and orders have shipped. Oh friends, it is just so beautiful! We've received such a wonderful response to this new endeavor...it seems you agree that is is beautiful! Many of you noted it was, "worth the wait" for the pre-orders, but all fabric is in stock and ready to ship NOW for your spring projects!!! Click here to view the entire line and place your order.

Remember, when you order from us, we give you the special touches you don't get anywhere...generously cut and wrapped in pretty ribbon with our logo/care suggestsions card by Jenna; well-packaged in pretty tissue by Christina, sent out with a handwritten label by me~ it's like opening a present to yourself! And indeed it is...a present of new fabric and quilting inspiration... A present that opens doors for gift-projects and to making your own home more beautiful.

We've got plenty of ideas, and we're hoping some of them will make it to this blog soon...aprons, tea cozies, pillowcases, carry sacks, snack bags, bonnets, pinafores, children's dresses, doll dresses, curtains (for Ellie's room?), pillows, and of course...quilts! We have a few kits in stock too (though I am afraid we are still waiting on the backordered Tea Topper kits). The A is for Annabelle kit has been very popular... as I'm sure, will this new project below...

  1. Wow, these fabrics are just beautiful! And what a great idea. Perfect for a little easter dress I think :)

  2. Dear Natalie,

    Your display of Annabelle fabric looks so nice! I'm sure people will make many lovely things with it! Your packaging is always a delight to open! We just love Tasha's "A is for Annabelle" and her dolls and they have inspired us to gather all of Annabelle's things from A to Z for our doll Annabelle!

    We featured Corgyncombe's Annabelle in a post on our blog the Corgyncombe Courant the other day on February 19th. Your readers can find the link to our blog the Corgyncombe Courant under your "Blogs We Like" list.

    Your friends,
    Diane and daughter Sarah at the Corgyncombe Courant

  3. Dear Natalie,
    The fabric is just breathtaking! My littlest, Lydia was looking over my shoulder as I read your post and asked if she could have a quilt of Annabelle's. How can I refuse that:-)

    Our Tasha group Take Peace has an Annabelle Club. Kristen, aka Dr. Dolly sculpted heads for everyone and when we had our Garden Tour and Kindred Spirits gathering in Vermont a few years back we were all given a huge assortment of Annabelle's projects from Sheryl Williams Annabelle collection. Marjorie knows Kristen and her talent as a dollmaker. We are all so fortunate to have her as our mentor as we make Annabelle and all her accesories. Each year for Christmas, Valentine's Day and Easter we have a gift exchange and our Annabelle's are always included. My husband is amazed that a doll at our house gets mail and gifts...LOL!

    Here is a post of some of us getting together in my home for dolly time and a St. Nicholas Tea, Tasha style:-)It was a lovely time.


    Off to peruse the fabric!

  4. @Heather...Perfect for a little Easter dress! Send us pictures to fromtherookery (at) gmail (dot) com!!

    @Diane...We have new tissue paper that is so pretty! It's nice to keep things fresh and a bit of a surprise!

    @Suzanne...Oh well, now you'll be sewing up a storm! So glad Lydia loved the fabric. I think we all do!

  5. Oooh, I just bought some of this at fabricland and will make a lovely lolita dress out of it. Beautiful work!
