Jim Shore

I was so excited yesterday when I found that one of my favourite designers Jim Shore
Had a fabric range. Of course you probably all knew that especially my American friends....For those of you who don't know Jim Shore he does some fabulous ornaments.
A few years ago I paid quite a lot of money for a beautiful Noah's Ark and its one of my most treasured possessions. Sadly as I'm at work at the mo I haven't got a picture but here are some other pictures to give you some idea. It seems like it may be difficult to source his fabric in the UK so if any one in the USA can point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful.

So what do you think.... I just LOVE these designs.


  1. I did a quick search and he has a web site with his fabric on it -

    I'm not sure what the cost would be to get it shipped to you but it certainly is a place to start. Good luck!

  2. Hi Karen,

    They certainly look lovely...I hadn't heard of him before...we probably won't get his fabrics here either *rueful :)*

  3. WOW - I had no idea he has fabric - I love his art!

  4. Thank you for popping by and leaving a comment. I love that fabric but have never heard of the artist before. Now I can look out for other prints.

  5. I've heard of him! I bought a Christmas carving of his, a couple of years ago and it is really lovely!

  6. The artist is fabulous! He also has the greatest figurines and things that have to do with quilting. I love this fabric and will have to look into finding some. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Very cool.... Too cool.... Fun cool....

    I love Jim Shore, but didn't know he had fabric. He is like our C.K.... now we have one on you all..... chuckle-chuckle.....

    Heading off to follow and check it out more here in your blog of Hopes. I see so many I know on your blog list.... wow...

    Stop by my garden anytime. The lemonade is cold.

  8. Hi .. thank you for following my blog. I love the layout and design of your blog! Those fabric panels are so colourful! :-)

  9. Hi Karen, I didn't realize Jim Shore had ventured into designing fabrics. I have a snowman sculpture by him and love it. He does have some beautiful things. If I run across the fabric, I'll be sure to let you know.

  10. Oh wow, what beautiful fabrics!


  11. I love your blog Karen! I haven't heard of that fabric but if I do I will be sure to let you know. And thank you for your comment about my handstitching - I really appreciated it!

  12. Beautiful prints, in my eye the more colour the better. I'd love to own a Noah's Ark, but haven't yet found the perfect one for me. x

  13. I will be checking out Jim... I had not heard of him before... lovely designs though...

    thanks for popping by its lovely to meet like minded people..
