Friends in Finland

am.oilcloth

I was so excited to see my oilcloth on the Autumn cover of Ottobre magazine, but altogether bummed as well that this oilcloth has sold out from every point on the planet. I have answered SO many individual emails regarding the oilcloths and their availability but haven't had a chance to come clean here. So the story started with me showing off the new oilcloths, and promising more, which apparently had such a lovely result that they became unavailable before many stores even received their shipments. Unfortunately the production time on reprinting those and new pieces was so far out, that Westminster chose not to reorder. We could call this the bad news.

GOOD news?

There are two new oilcloths in the works as part of my NEW (thats right, you heard me) collection of fabrics hopefully to be shipping in Septmeber or October. So the fabulous rain slicker pattern included in this issue of Ottobre need not go to waste, but will have the chance to be sewn up in some seriously sweet, slick, little prints. Can't wait to show you!

MORE good news?

I have two extra copies of the Autumn issue sitting here on my much too cluttered desk, and well, just thought two someones out there may want to put them to use, and help me declutter. Leave a comment and I'll draw two names sometime next week and send them on their way. Awe, you're welcome.

My pals at Ottobre were kind enough to also send along this little handmade gift for Roman. How please-keep-me-from-fainting cute is this?? (thank you Tuula and all!)

Ack, that bird is smart and just looks like it's squawking away. Oh, and speaking of squawking, Daria caught me doing such and posted a video interview with me from last fall Quilt market (where I give away a little more about the next fabric line and also lie about it's debut date, which I have become so good at). So you can check that out if you have something more important to do but are procrastinating. I like to be helpful where I can.

Have a great weekend!! xoxo, Anna

  2. Darn on the oilcloth, my daughter saw my slicker I made out of the same oilcloth as the childs version and wanted one for herself and I just needed about 1.5 yds! Double darn, but you could make up for it by choosing me as recipient of one of the catalogs!:)

  5. That's just about the cutest rain slicker ever! Love it! And I'm bummed about the oilcloth, too. I was so hoping that I'd be able to find some oilcloth to re-upholster my dining room chairs with. Having kids...I need a wipe-able surface!!

    Either-way, thank you for the ongoing inspiration. I don't think you even know how amazing that is.

  133. I love your oilcloth, that rain slicker and I and just crazy about you...I am one of your silent readers and it is time I come out...I think you are so talented and I love reading about all your new adventures with your family and career. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Congratulations on the cover!
    I am one of the lucky ones who was able to get her hands on that very oilcloth when it first came out. People, it will be worth the wait to get the next lot. I have purchased several designers' oilcloths over the past few years (but I am too classy a gal to name names) and AMH's is by far the lovliest to work with - soft, supple, fabulous flexibility and of course - the colors! I am really looking forward to seeing the new designs - and the pattern would be awesome so I can stop wearing the gorgeous table cloth I made - ha!
    Aside:
    Anna Maria - how do you do it - seriously the mind boggles: such a great happy brood and fabulous designs, amazing and inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  135. Awesome giveaway! I've always wanted to take a look at Ottobre magazine, but haven't been able to find it locally! I love the little outfit they sent! Adorable!!! Thanks for the chance! And congratulations on the cover!!! Too cool!

  136. I certainly wouldn't mind one of your extra copies of Ottobre, and I would love a little bird of my own on a skirt for my sweet 17-month-old, Cora. Darling.

    I'm looking forward to your new line.

  137. Anna Maria I adore you! Thank you so much for allowing me to do that video interview with you for Boutique Cafe! We all just love you around here. :)

    Hee hee, I guess I got the SCOOP on the new fabric line before anybody! :) You're awesome, and don't worry about the procrastination - you had a beautiful baby boy around that time. Excited to see all you are working on.
