Memories & Southwestern Spirit: Arizona After & Heritage by April Rhodes

Hey there, fab makers!

I hope your summer is going well. This is such a great season because the days are longer, you can do all kinds of outdoor activities and you can take adventurous family trips! One place I’ve always wanted to explore in the summer is the southwest region of the U.S. There’s something about the golden sunsets and vast deserts of this region that peak my curiosity.

Until I plan my trip, I’ll vicariously visit the southwest with the beautiful prints in April Rhodes’ new collection: Arizona After. This collection revisit many of the signature designs in April’s first limited edition collection, Arizona fabrics while expanding the range with new colors and prints. Each print is enhanced with April’s earthy style and warm colors that are completely mesmerizing.

To complement this range, April is also releasing a second collection called Heritage. This collection consists of only rayon and knit fabrics for all kinds of garment sewing! But what excites me about this collection the most is the beautiful story behind it. Heritage is about April’s biggest inspirations, her father and grandmother. Each print brings to life family mementos that create a story on fabrics.
