Knockout Licensing deals for new line of branded craft fabrics.
Andover Fabrics has launched its line of fabrics for quilting and sewing inspired by the classic book series Little House on the Prairie.
The deal was brokered by Knockout Licensing, which represents the Little House on the Prairie brand.
The new fabric line features three different collections of prints inspired by the frontier lifestyle depicted in the stories written by Laura Ingalls Wilder–Walnut Grove named for the town in Minnesota where Wilder’s family settled in 1874, which incorporates prints from that era; Prairie Flowers, which uses bright and bold calicos; and Scenics and Icons, which includes iconic imagery on special, natural-finish fabric.
The fabrics will be available at independent quilt stores all over the U.S. in early November, and available in Europe beginning in February 2016.
"The rising popularity of Little House on the Prairie and of quilting went hand in hand," says David Weinstein, president, Andover Fabrics. "The brand is literally part of the fabric of our industry, and we've been inundated with interest from fans since we first announced our plans. They're excited to get their hands on these fabrics and we're excited by their enthusiasm."
“Andover has done a wonderful job capturing the pioneering spirit and enduring beauty of the brand in these fabric collections,” says Trip Friendly, chief executive officer, Friendly Family Productions, owner of the Little House on the Prairie brand. “We have seen an outpouring of enthusiasm for these collections from the multiple generations of Little House on the Prairie fans and look forward to seeing the beautiful quilts and DIY projects that these fabrics inspire.”
