During the recent Bloggers Quilt Festival I was browsing some wonderful, new to me blogs, and read about Lecien fabrics and their embroidery floss, COSMO. I hadn't heard of either before and went on Lecien's web site at to investigate. Their fabrics just blew me away, particuarly their Mrs. March's Collection of the 30s fabrics. It would be perfect for a new design I am working on. I tried to email them but it wouldn't go through for some reason, so if anyone knows of a shop that carries this line of fabrics and threads would you please let me know. As far as I know they aren't in Canada yet.

I've almost finished the borders for the Vintage Tiles quilt, so I hope to be able to show it to you within the next week.
I also got a pleasant surprise on the weekend, I won a $50.00 Gift Certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop It was a draw for the Bloggers Quilt Festival and my number got picked! They have so much lovely fabric it's hard to choose.
If you didn't get a chance to sign up for Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival this time, she will be organizing another one in the Fall, so watch for it.

Bye for now. Chat with you later.

Hi Dorothy! Those 30's fabrics are luscious!! In the right hand column of the page link you posted there is a button for 'US customer contact'. I think it gives the names of businesses in the US that carry their products. Best of luck! :)...Rae in San Diego

Awesome, you won a giveaway. I know you can't wait to see what you can buy. The shopping part is always fun.
I have been seeing some blogs talk about the Cosmo thread. I haven't actually seen any around here. I looked at the list of sellers and there are none near me.
The fabrics you were looking at are very cute.

Hi Dorothy,
I just took a peak at the Lecien's website. If you click on "our agents" on the right hand menu there is a listing for a Distributor for Canada...
Hope you find it! 8-)
