Hi everyone,





Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all doing well. Have you entered our Ethereal FQ Bundle Giveaway yet? You can win this bundle of gorgeousness – be sure to enter here!


The holiday season is officially here! And there is so much left to do – decorating the tree, finding those last minute gifts, planning the perfect menu for your upcoming holiday party, and baking, baking…and oh yes, more baking. And while we can’t help with your holiday shopping or baking, we’ve got a fun DIY today that will surely add festivity to your party decor!


Our Chalkboard Fabric Holiday Banner is perfect for organizing your party (DIY hot chocolate bar, anyone? :)), as a backdrop for a photobooth, or for adding some extra holiday cheer! We had our office Christmukkah party this past weekend, and our banner added a modern and creative element to the decor. And the best parts? It’s not too difficult to make… and it’s reusable!

Hi everyone!






Happy Friday! We hope you all had a fantastic week – we are so happy for the long weekend… means extra time for sewing projects, quilting, and crafting! Anyone working on any fun projects this weekend? We’d love to know :)


Time for our weekly Fan Friday, and today we’re sharing the perfect project to kick start this long weekend. When we saw this In The Navy bunting banner by Little Birds Boutique, we knew we just had to share. Fran, owner and designer at Little Birds Boutique, is a Landscape Architect by profession. In 2007, she became a full-time stay-at-home mommy to her 3 year old twins. She started sewing after the birth of her girls, and never looked back. Her passion for sewing continued, and she began Little Birds Boutique as a way to share her creations with the world.


She started with bibs and blankets, but quickly expanded to kid’s clothing, headbands, bags, and even more adorable accessories for little kiddos. She loves the whole spectrum of running her business, from the initial design to the final product being sent out to its new home. And when she’s not sewing for her business, she’s still sewing things for her family – needless to say, she found her true calling!




We were so thrilled to see that Fran used our In The Navy by Jackie McFee Collection for her bunting banners. They look so fun and happy, perfect for a nautical-themed party or nursery room!! We love that she chose a fun mix of all the patterns, keeping it fresh with the navy and hot pink color scheme. As well, we love that the top stitch, though a necessity, also adds a fun element to the banner with its zig-zag pattern. We absolutely adore this bunting banner, and could imagine it brightening up any space – love the idea of it being above a bed or strung along a crib!






We want to thank you, Fran, for the fabric love and for using our In The Navy by Jackie McFee Collection for your beautiful bunting banners. Be sure to check out Fran’s Etsy Shop Little Birds Boutique, for an abundance of other goodies, as well as her accompanying Facebook Page. Have a wonderful long weekend!!





Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone!




Happy Thursday! How is everyone’s day going? The Easter Bunny made a quick visit to the Camelot Design Studio today, so we are all happily working and enjoying our treats! We hope everyone has a wonderful Easter holiday this weekend, wishing you all  much happiness, love, and yummy food :)


It’s time for this week’s Thankful Thursday! Today we are going to be sharing a very exciting event that took place last week in Kitchener: Scrapfest 2014! This very fun festival brought together lots of crafty and inspiring people. There were informative workshops, engaging make-and-takes, and lots of creativity floating around everywhere!


Westcott was part of a really great Make & Take, lead by Elizabeth Glenday, and we were very honored to be a part of it too! Our Conversation Heart Banner free tutorial was used as the project, and they used our Ad-Fab™ and chalkboard fabric for the banners. We absolutely adore how they made the conversation hearts, but also Easter-inspired with the cute egg banners! It just shows how easily adaptable this project is for all celebrations and holidays.

We adore the “I made it @ Scrapfest 2014” chalkboard fabric speech bubble! Such a cute idea!! The Make & Take looked like it was SO much fun, and we heard that it was a great success. Everyone who came by enjoyed the project and putting their own spin on it! So great to see crafters of all ages having participated too!

We want to say a HUGE thank you to Brenda Greenwood-Vernem from Westcott, Paula Jones from the CHA, and Elizabeth Glenday for allowing Camelot Fabrics to be a part of a great team. We were so happy that our Conversation Hearts Banner & products were much loved at the Scrapfest event! We were super excited to hear everyone was received well and it was a success. If you want to be a part of the next Scrapfest, or for more information, check out the Scrapfest site here. Thank you once again! Have a great day everyone! :)




Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone!




Happy Tuesday! We hope everyone is having a fantastic day. We are excitedly preparing for some Easter festivities here at the office, including a fun Easter egg hunt and pastel washi tape wall décor. We’re excited!! And to those who celebrate, Happy First Day of Passover! :)


It’s also time for this week’s How To’s Day! Today we are sharing a fantastic project for you all, just in time for all the upcoming Spring celebrations. We love celebrating anything, but there is nothing as pretty as a springtime tea party infused with all things colorful and bright…and of course, lots of fresh florals all around!


How To's Day | Square Bunting Banner Tutorial | Neon & On by Jackie McFee for Camelot Fabrics


With the amount of celebrations we have throughout the year, we are always up for the challenge of decorating to our heart’s content! We love crafty and DIY parties, and we always find a ton of inspiration on our Pinterest. The project we are sharing today, our Square Bunting Banner Tutorial, is perfect for any occasion or party – it is simple, but adds the perfect amount of punch to any décor, especially with our Neon & On Collection. And because this is made from fabric, it can be reused for multiple occasions, and can be used later on to decorate a bedroom!

Hi everyone!




Happy Tuesday!! We hope you are all having a fantastic day so far. Keeping in the theme of Valentine’s day week, we’ve made super cute felt mailboxes and had a mini card exchange today. We are spreading positive, heart-filled vibes in the office ♥ It’s also the last day for our Betty Boop FQ bundle giveaway! :)


We’ve also got another Valentine’s day treat for you! Today we are sharing an uber-cute DIY Valentine’s day dual tutorial: Our Conversation Hearts Banner & Valentine’s Gift Tag!! We recently launched our Ad-Fab™ (learn more about it here!) and wanted to share one of the many ways you can use it. Super easy to work with, mess-free, and perfect for all your crafting needs!




We used our chalkboard fabric and Ad-Fab™ for the pretty and sweet hearts, making a fun banner for any upcoming Valentine’s Day party! Spread some love by writing all the things you like best about your friends and loved ones with chalk or chalkboard markers onto our banner, and then re-use it for your next event! Include our Valentine’s gift tags with your presents, and your guests will also have a tag they can reuse again too! Now you will be all set and ready to celebrate with our holiday inspired DIY projects ♥
