The antique mall awaits with a plethora of pleasures to be discovered, all in Curio. A mixing of soft petal pink, cameo blue, and antique mahogany becomes a study of timeless treasures found. From classic lace doilies to fine bone china, the collection of shabby chic vintage collectables is chock-full of quaint, estate-quality design and fine, traditional detail.
If you're a scrapbooker, you may be familar with BasicGrey. They are one of the biggest resources for scrapbooking products: fabulous papers, stamps, notions and kits. Starting in 2008, they have also designed ten popular fabric collections for Moda. Curio is their latest and just coming out now in stores and online. In addition to yardage, Curio is available in pre-cuts: fat quarter bundles, fat eighth bundles, jelly rolls, charm packs, and layer cakes. (Ok, now I want a piece of cake and a warm jelly roll). There are also four coordinating 'almost solids' in Curio's grunge print. I love it when a collection includes solids.

Where to Buy
Curio is just out this month, so be on the lookout as it begins to show up in more places. We found it already at:
If you see a particular fabric online you like, you can check your favorite fabric source to find out if they have it in stock or can get it for you. Be sure to look at our Shopping Directory for our fave sources. You can also try Googling the fabric name along with the designer's name or the design house, for example: "Curio BasicGrey" and Moda. Prints from older collections can sometimes be found on Etsy or eBay. If you love a fabric, get it while you can. Because, like fashionable apparel, popular fabrics come and go; at some point, even the most amazing fabrics are no longer in stores or online.
