I’m very pleased to introduce Modern Workshop, the second Oliver + S fabric collection for Moda.
Modern Workshop takes its inspiration from the Wiener Werkstatte. Based in Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century, this circle of artists and craftspeople reacted against the industrial revolution’s mass production of homewares by creating unique, beautiful objects that are noted today for their enduring quality and their sophisticated design sensibility.
The collection includes 32 prints in both floral and geometric motifs that make use of a fresh, twenty-first-century color palette. The collection includes both small scale and large scale prints which makes it ideal for either garment sewing or quilting.
Modern Workshop pre-cuts are shipping to stores now. Yardage will be available in your local independent fabric store toward the end of April. We’ll be showing much more of the collection over the next few weeks, but I thought you might be interested in having a little sneak peek at the prints and colorways.
Modern Workshop includes quilting cottons that have the same wonderful hand as City Weekend, luxurious interlock knits, and new PU-coated laminates that meet CPSIA standards for use in children’s clothing. I hope you’ll enjoy sewing with it!
