    Thanks so much for posting that!!

    I'll have to order it for our shop. There must have been rumors of this group floating around "out there", because we have had people asking about Dr. Seuss fabric, and I just assumed they were asking about ones that they'd seen on eBay, fabrics which went out of print years ago.

    Again, another big thanks!

    Thanks for the head's up. Those would be so perfect for charity kids' quilts.

    Would you be able to sell on pre-order? I saw one store that was doing that, but I never heard of them so I would be hesitant to do that. They said they wouldn't charge till it shipped, but ya never can be sure! :)

    Yes, thanks for asking. I'm going to order the entire collection except for two that are only black-and-white (figuring that people would prefer the multi-color versions of the same designs).

    I'm going to call Kaufman now, and once I find out what their price is, I'll know what we will have to charge. Fat Quarter Shop is going to be selling their yardage for $9.50 / yard but I'm sure we will be able to do better than that!

    Oh yay!! Please post in this thread when you start pre-selling and I will start twisting hubby's arm. LOL Will you be able to hold off charging until they come out in September as well? That may convince him since that'll give me time to save up. :)

    Cheers!

    Well that is one fabric line I will HAVE to buy. Can't you imagine a graduation gift of the book, "Oh the places you'll go" along with a quilt! My son will be awarded his master's degree soon and he's one who would love it! And there is DD who gets her teaching degree in August... oh the joy in my 'ittle heart right now!

    Apparently these were a HOT item at Quilt Market! I just got the (unhappy) word from Robert Kaufman that their first printing, due in early September, is already oversold, so they will be reprinting and they don't have an ETA for that yet.

    So... if you want to get these fabrics as early as possible, you should look around now to find a place that's advertising September availability. And hope that the store you've found is not already oversold themselves!

    I won't be able to get mine until the second printing, which I'm guessing will be in November. :-(

    It's about time we got some Seuss fabric!
    I will hunt it down - and make some stuff with it. I adore Seuss - and we will probably go to Universal Studios again next year so I'll make sure I make everyone an appliqued shirt - the hat made with those materials. I can already see it in my head! Yay!

    I'm marking my calendar to look for it in September!

    I love your idea, and this would be awesome for someone who has a child, grandchild, or friend that is graduating kindergarten also!

    Well I'm going to have to make a quilt for my SIL. My daughter made him a Cat In The Hat costume several years ago for Halloween. He can tell the book word for word. On Dr. Suess's birthday he goes to the school and does a program for the younger kids. They love it and of course are young enough to think he is the cat in the hat. What fun he has.
