    VIP Exclusive (a division of Cranston) is coming out with a new group of Elvis Presley fabrics sometime next year. This is the first new Elvis group in... well, quite a while.

    What do you think? Will there be a market for this?

    I think the guitars are quite nice and they don't scream "Elvis".

    I helped my sister make her MIL a rag quilt with the previous Elvis fabric line. I love this one! The colors are much nicer. I really didn't care for the shade of green that was in that line of fabric. I will tell my sister about this so she can make her MIL another quilt or something.

    Will definitely need some Elvis fabrics. Hubby likes Elvis and DD's boyfriend is a musician so I am sure he probably likes Elvis too! And I like Elvis too!

    I got the last Elvis line off the reduced rack from Wally World paid $2.00 a yard for panels and $1.00 for the fillers: Got top done but haven't quilted yet. Will finish soon so will be ready for this line (on sale) :)

    The guitars may not scream Elvis, but I will...E-L-V-I-S!!! (At least I didn't pass out! LOL)

    I am a huge Elvis fan and will certainly be looking for this line next year. My Mom will also love it because it is both Elvis and RED!

    Thanks so much for the preview.

    Love the guitars, too! You're right they don't scream Elvis. I have an aunt, however, who would go absolutely NUTS over these fabrics!!!!! She even named her two sons after Elvis's middle name (Aaron). One she named Aaron, and the other son is named Garon. :roll: Go figure!! Personally, I've never been that obsessed with ANY celeb. :|

    LOVE IT!!! Would be very interested in buying some of the prints...They are classier than the previous collection. The one with the guitars is a winner in all catagories.

    I would like to know if the Elvis pictured actually looks like Elvis. I have seen many fabrics and refuse to buy them because the face doesn't even look like him... Can you post a larger size pic of those so I can see the faces better? As for the others, I like them already. Have a friend who LOVES Elvis, so will be buying this to make something for her if the faces look right.

    Love the previews of fabrics you do. Keep 'em coming!

    To tell you the truth... none of the "people" fabrics I've ever seen are photo-realistic. You'll get the definite impression that it's Elvis (or Dorothy, or Lucy) but it won't look like a photograph. All the Elvis fabrics have been made by Cranston, so whether it's the Quilting Treasures brand, VIP brand or VIP Exclusive, it's probably going to come out about the same.

    The pictures that I posted are what I found on the "wholesale customers only" section of Cranston's website. I don't have access, at this point, to any larger pictures. Many of the fabric companies no longer print samples on fabric, for shops to choose from; we have to make our choices based on the pictures that we see. And pictures don't always translate perfectly onto fabric.

    The Elvis line is from the VIP Exclusive division of Cranston, which means two things:
    - it won't be available in chain stores
    - you won't be able to get it at chain store prices

    These are going to cost your LQS the same as their Quilting Treasures brand, meaning that the retail price is ... well, you're not going to find it at $2 / yard. It's going to be quilt shop prices, because it comes in at a quilt shop cost.

    My (semi-educated) guess is that those fabrics from this group that ever DO make it to clearance status are not going to be any of the ones with Elvis on them; it will be the dots or the checks.
