Endangered Sanctuary

slide_endangered-sanctuary-flannels

If you are starting to plan and sew a project for Fall we have a lovely, woodsy fabric line in you may want to consider. Endangered Sanctuary Flannels by Holly Taylor for Moda are so soft and cozy and are suitable for the outdoor enthusiast or a special ,ale in your life. The inspiration behind the fabric is also very intriguing…

There isn’t much we love more than Moda’s soft, luscious flannel, except perhaps our most famous Minnesota animal, the moose. When it was placed on the Endangered Species list, we were curious to know if any other local animals and birds might also be on the list. We were astounded to discover how many were, and to realize how we were taking it for granted that some species might soon be lost to history. With this collection, we wanted to highlight our favorite Minnesota wildlife to increase awareness, and to encourage all of us to do what we can to preserve them.       ~Holly Taylor
