Franjo El Piranho by Thorsten Berger

Oh, let’s escape down into the underwater world of „Franjo El Piranho“! Deep in the murky fresh water lakes and rivers of South America, a bizarre little creature lives. Meet „Franjo El Piranho“. Legend has it that the piranha is a carnivorous beast, when in fact the piranha is omnivorous, preferring vegetation when available. Our fierce and funny Franjo likes to swim in waters warmed by nearby volcanic activity best. Thorsten Berger’s newest fish friend in red and blue is certainly an eye-catcher and is bound to put you in a good mood, with or without the “Feed Me” typography. Each approx. 65 cm wide panel includes two different Franjo fish, to use individually or together on your sewing projects.



Watercolor-like stripes stretch across the entire width of the panel and resemble an underwater world. The stripes are also available as an all-over design–just perfect for sleeves or to add to the panels to make larger, adult wardrobe pieces. But the stripes also are also a great, minimalistic stand-alone fabric.
The other all-over mix-and-match design features lively, colorful water bubbles – or are those bits of bubbling lava?. Choose serene blue blends or bold red blots to create funky fresh and fantastical “Franjo El Piranho” pieces.

Sandra Prüßmeier-Gonzales simply loves her garden and chooses to spend almost every free moment there.

Crystal Magic by Lycklig Design

Across cultures and millenia, people everywhere have been fascinated by gemstones, crystals and minerals. With an eternal beauty, gemstones sparkle and shine in magical and mysterious ways. Crystals take their shape from the highly ordered structure of molecules extending perfectly in all directions. In other words, what you see in your hand is a reflection of the lattice formations of the atoms themselves. As such, some of these earthly treasures, the so-called healing stones, are considered by some to harness and express certain positive energies.

“Crystal Magic” is printed on our high quality Swafing knit jersey, Choose from light mint green with purple accents and a beautiful pastel pink with bright yellow accents.



Taken in by the incredible beauty of crystals, Lycklig Design’s Berit Winter created Swafing’s new „Crystal Magic“ fabric series. A colorful crystal clusters capture the light on a plain pastel backgrounds on the approx. 75 cm high panel. If you just know to look for it, there is magic to be found everywhere. Mix and match three designs in two colourways. The panel fabric features an approx. 24 cm high solo motif next to beautiful crystal pattern. The unusual crystals from the panel fabric is also available as a matching all-over print. Finally, the diamond pattern makes a bold statement of contrasting white against luscious colour bleeds. This photorealistic digital printed design is suitable for tops, dresses, leggings, tops, loungewear and so much more!

Happy Kitchen by Steinbeck – Kitchen DIY Set

No matter how well you’ve tended your garden or decorated the living room, every party always ends up in the kitchen. It is where people naturally congregate, because the kitchen is the heart of the home. Steinbeck has three pretty and very practical panel fabrics for stitching up very useful everyday kitchen and dining items. Choose from three great designs: a black and gold design featuring a master chef motif, a gray star design for the star bakers and home chefs, or a black with white polka dot design featuring lucky kitchen angels & devils!

Please note, these panels feature several different expressions in German, such as “made with love,” “enjoy your meal,” “star kitchen” and so on. This will add a touch of Old World flair to your table (and will surely make your strudel taste just like Oma’s).

Each panel contains six great projects for the cooking and dining that can be sewn from the approximately 145cm high piece: An apron featuring a practical tea towel holder, a pot holder, a bread basket, a bread bag, and four coasters and napkin rings each. Here and there on the panel are also many additional little “Happy Kitchen” motifs that can be cut out and appliquéd to these or other projects, for example to make matching kitchen towels or napkins.


Design Examples: STEINBECK / Annesvea.de


All items are clearly labeled on the panel. Even beginners can achieve quick and professional looking results. The projects were developed in creative collaboration between Steinbeck and AnneSvea!



These items can be stitched up quickly as a special housewarming gift, as favors for kitchen party, as workshop projects, and, thanks to the helpful instructions, great first sewing projects for beginners!
