All you need is LOVE!
all you need is love, love
love is all you need

Well a spot of tucker here and there would go down a treat also!

Amy Butler has named her latest fabric collection LOVE

We all quite fancy this range.

Amy has also released two new patterns:-

the sweet harmony handbag and tote

and the long awaited Liverpool shirt

You might remember this design was featured as a dress in Amy's Midwest Modern book (pages 142 & 143), and many customers were keen to source the pattern.

We have stock of all of Amy's new goodies, and many of her older designs also.

Sophie Digard

Calico and Ivy stock a selection of very amazing accessories designed by Parisian Sophie Digard, and hand worked by her 'village' in Madgascar

We like to adapt their use to suit what we are wearing on the day - one day a necklet, the next a belt.

Love, Love, Love.

Ready, set, go...

...our new shop is ready to show off her new look and although a little camera shy we coaxed these images from her.
We are preparing for Christmas and dressing up 'calico' accordingly.
