Amy Butler Alchemy

The long-anticipated moment has finally arrived: the new Amy Butler collection is now in stock at Treadle Yard Goods!

But the fabric is just the beginning; Treadle will also be hosting a Trunk Show of wonderful garments made in Amy's new fabric collection.  The Trunk Show starts May 15th; keep your eyes on our blog for more information.

We've been eagerly awaiting her new collection, Alchemy, for a while, and fans of Amy Butler's unique style will not be disappointed.  

There's plenty of the classic damask and medallion styles that Amy is famous for, but she's also added some freshness to Alchemy with large, open florals and botanical imagery.

We're also seeing an incredible variety in the textures and weaves available.  Instead of just cotton sheeting, we have a broad array of fabrics, from drapey rayon and silky cotton lawn to nubbly linen blends and rich plush cotton velvet.

The palette is largely cool tones like green, blue, and violet, with sparks of bright warm colors like pink and orange added to the mix in perfect balance.  Amy's amazing color sense really comes through in Alchemy.

With this variety of textures, fabrics, and prints, the possibilities are endless.  The linens would make great jackets or bags.  Rayon and cotton voile are ideal blouse or dress fabrics.  And the velvet and sheeting would be lovely in quilts, throws, and pillows.

There's more in our store, so stop by Treadle and check it out!
