    This is just an informational post... for anybody who doesn't know, Shamash & Sons got out of the business of selling fabrics to the LQS market a couple of years back. (They still do print a few designs, but just for the chain stores.) Some of their designers re-grouped as "Elizabeth's Studio" so if you liked the novelty prints by Shamash you should check out what Elizabeth's Studio has.

    They have some wonderful nature prints and the designs by Christian Riese Lassen (Mystical Ride, Children of the Sea) are out of this world!

    Beautiful panel! My SIL loves dolphins. I'd like to buy a couple of panels and make an attic window quilt for her.

    Wow! Gorgeous prints. On the Elizabeth's Studio website, click on the Distributors. It looks like you can order from them. I followed one distributor website through, and you can order most of the fabrics from there.

    The distributors won't sell retail quantites; they'll only sell you full bolts.

    To find retail sources, the simplest way is to just type "Elizabeth's Studio fabric" into the search box at google (or your favorite search engine) and see what comes up, and follow the links from there.

    And... I think I may have confused you... the Elizabeth's Studio lines ARE available at LQSs. Just the Shamash ones are not.

    We carry some of the Elizabeth's Studio line, including the panel and three coordinates. Plus quite a few of their other nature/wildlife fabrics.

    Have you seen the "Parrot Party" line they're coming out with later this fall? It's hysterical!

    I don't think there's anywhere online that you could even see what Shamash has anymore. I've seen some of their designs in the novelty section at JoAnn's. If you look at Shamash's website, http://www.shamashandsons.com it's obvious that they are not much involved with the quilting market at all. They're converting goods for apparel manufacturers such as Liz Claiborne & Ralph Lauren. So, for us quilters, they're pretty much out of the picture entirely.

    Now that I read it again, I don't think I answered your question well at all!

    Whatever is on the Elizabeth's Studio website, those are all available to LQS's. Elizabeth's Studio is completely separate from Shamash. Generally I've found their fabrics to be usually be on 15-yard bolts, but as always it can vary a couple of yards either way.

    We don't carry all of the Elizabeth's Studio line, but for anyone who can use a full bolt, we have access to anything that's still in print. Not *everything* that's still on their website is still in print, though. But if there's enough interest, they will sometimes bring a print back, or re-market it as part of a new collection. For instance, the aqua blue "bubble" print was originally part of "Ocean World" (which is gone new except for the seashell print) but the bubbles are coming back as a coordinate to "Parrot Party". It might work with the Christian Riese Lassen ones too but alas I don't have even a scrap left to check that thought out.

    i could probably have used a full 8 yards of one of the fiesta line, but to tell the truth, 12 or 15 yards is a little much for me. does anyone want to share a bolt of the pattern that looks like spanish tiles? i would be happy to have 9 yards (i would also bind in the same fabric) of that. if there is, hop in.
