Update on Sunbrella® sample books for 2018

Glen Raven, the manufacturer of the Sunbrella® fabrics, is introducing three separate Sunbrella® Collection books for 2018 – 2020: the Elements Collection, the Makers Collection and the Shift Collection.  All books will be in effect for three years and open to form easels for easy display.

The Elements Collection consists of 220 patterns including Canvas, Cast, Dupione, Spectrum and more and is the largest of the three.  It is very similar to the 2016-2017 large sample book and has 9 NEW patterns.  This book will be available in the spring of 2018 and will cost $195.00 plus S&H.


The Makers Collection is a smaller collection, a total of 42 patterns, of decorative fabrics, stripes & jacquards. Patterns include the 9 NEW PATTERNS of the Elements Collection. This book also folds open to become an easel and will be available in the Spring of 2018 for $45.00 plus S&H.  Please view Makers Collection: http://www.uniquexpressions.net/productlinehtmls/sunbrella.html


 The Shift Collection is the same size as the Makers Collection, consisting of 41 patterns, featuring classic design interpreted in a contemporary fashion.  This book also folds open to become an easel and is available NOW for $45.00 plus S&H.  View Shift Collection: http://www.uniquexpressions.net/productlinehtmls/sunbrella.html


Suggestion:  The current 2016/2017 large Sunbrella® sample book, which has all but nine patterns of the Elements Collection, has been selling for $135.00 during the past two years.  My supplier has offered the few remaining books at a special price of $45.00 plus S&H.  When it’s available, add the Makers Collection to your library and have all the patterns which are part of the NEW Elements Collection. Each book includes a DROP list of patterns to be removed.  To reduce shipping costs, I will wait for your responses before ordering these books.


There are currently 59 DROPS from the 2016/2017 Sunbrella® sample book including the entire Icon Collection.  Request the DROP list from uniqshasta@charter.net so you know which discontinued fabrics can be removed.  Most of these patterns are still in stock but will NOT be reproduced once stock is gone.

For the New Year, I share my resolution from Mahatma Gandhi: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  Wishing each of you good health and a prosperous 2018.

Best wishes,
Shasta Breitkopf

Thank You!!!
