We have been rolling out a series of improvements to the website over the past couple of months and I just wanted to let you know about one in particular because I think it’s rather splendid. We’ve added a “Zoom” option to all the website photos when you’re looking at a category or search results page. So what? You might think, well it means you can enlarge any fabric to see it up close and check out more detail without having to click in and out of the product itself. This will save you lots of clicks as you’re browsing plus if you like what you see you can pop it in your basket from that very same window – result! This then leaves you within your search results to carry on shopping.
The other enhancement that you might find handy is that we’ve now added “width” as a filter on the left hand side so if you’re looking for a wider fabric they are now much easier to find.
We have lots more enhancements planned for this year but if you have anything you would like to see, do let us know as we’re always keen to hear how we can make the site a better place to hang out.
I think Ann Kelle’s Monkeys Royal was one of the very first quilt cotton fabrics we stocked, and we still carry it today. “Urban Zoologie” has been a hugely popular collection for us and it’s back, this time a bit smaller, and in my opinion even cuter! The colour palettes have been reworked and I have to say that I’m totally in love with the pink colourway which is contrasted with a soft grey and has a hint of mint (rhyme intended). There are more animals too choose from and some old favourites too. There’s a selection of multicoloured cuties including adorable foxes, chicks, monkeys and owls.
Browse the full collection here and we’ve put together a couple of fat quarter bundles for you too.
Do you have a favourite? I think I’m a little bit in love with the pink elephants.
