Hi, fabric friends!
It’s been a very exciting week here at the office because the team is back together! Working from home was a big challenge for us but we managed to continue releasing new collections and lookbooks, and boy does it feel good to do it in person again. The experience of having the collection right in front of you and feeling how dreamy these fabrics are in real life is something I will never take for granted! Now with the gang back together, we feel like it’s a great time to start with a new attitude and we are excited to pursue so many fresh ideas. This has been quite a year and a half for us and we think it’s important to reflect on what we’ve overcome together. Now, it’s time to pick things up where we left off and what better way to come back with a bang with Bari J.’s latest collection EVE!
Feminine prints were the main focus of this collection as they express the majesty of our earth and motherhood. This collection is meant to honor the strength and endurance of the female spirit, Eve, the mother of us all, representing the beautiful qualities of being a woman through prints of fierce cheetahs, graceful herons, and gentle butterflies.
Bari found herons to be magical and essential for this collection as well as her staple painterly florals. With so much meaning behind these fabrics, I can see so many projects being made that are dedicated to their mothers! This eye-catching color palette and unique textures are just asking to be made into home decor like table runners and pillows or luxe-filled quilts.
Garment makers, you will adore all the possible dresses and accessories you can create with the one knit and two rayon substrates available! Make any dress and top stand out while looking elegant with these prints.
What I especially love about rayon selection is the versatility of the prints because we have light and dark rayons that can be transformed for any occasion. The print “Rosefield Sapphire” is filled with dark and moody florals that would make the most glamorous night-out dresses. Yet, on the other end, we have the print “Jardin Robust” that reminds me of blue and white vintage plates, representing all things classy & timeless.

I can relate to this collection so much as it celebrates motherhood and for me, there is no one more important to me than my own mother. She has taught me so much about life and she played a big role in my life, and the first thing I want to do when I see this collection is create something for her. Being a part of this quilting community, I have never seen such a giving bunch in my life! What better way to make this quilting experience better and finding Eve fabrics to make it extra special. If you create something with these pretty fabrics, we would love to see your creations. Just tag us on social media using the hashtag #AGFEve, so we can share! Thank you for joining, celebrating this wonderful collection back at the office. Until next time...
