It feels like forever since we heard the shocking news that the founding designers, Melody Miller, Rashida Coleman-Hale, Kimberly Kight, Sarah Watts and Alexia Marcelle Abegg were leaving Cotton + Steel.
I wrote about it from my perspective as a shop owner last year. You can check out that post here
What an emotional roller-coaster those women must have been on.
The next chapter: RSS
The excitement has been building ever since their next endeavour, Ruby Star Society exploded onto the scene at Fall Quilt Market.
The fab five held fast and determinedly pursued their dream. Like a phoenix from the ashes of Cotton + Steel, they established this exciting new fabric company
Ruby Star Society is all about women.
Women working together; women empowering each other; and women creating with passion.
I am totally on board with that are you?
So.... I am totally excited to announce a brand new fabric club :
THE Society is exclusive to The Next Stitch Customers and open to makers, fabriholics and lovers of pretty things here in Australia and everywhere else as well.
If you are international get in touch and we will personalise a shipping option to suit.

That's right! I have selected bolts and bolts and bolts of fabric from ALL of the first release collections to send to THE Society members.
Monthly bundles will be curated in store and include nine designer metric fat quarters, plus 3 coordinating RSS basics prints like Grid, Spark, Brushed , Add it Up and Zip, so that you can start making and creating immediately.
