The Beatles Fabric Category Description:
1962. It hadn't been long since the days when pop music had taken by storm. Only a few years before, Rock & Roll meant the records of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly.

When the Beatles arrived on American shores in 1963, their brand of Rock & Roll wasn't that far removed from the tracks laid down at Sun Studio in Memphis a few years before. By the time the Beatles were done as a group, they had taken Rock & Roll in previously unimagined directions, expanding the musical vocabulary of pop music.

While The Beatles were already a smashing success in the United Kingdom, their music didn't take off in the U.S. until the release of their single "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in late 1963. This coincided with the band's watershed appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964 -  a broadcast watched by 74 million Americans.

Over the course of the next few years, The Beatles sound matured, especially since the writing combination of Lennon-McCartney produced most of the group's material. The Beatles' musical evolution was particularly evident beginning with the Ribber Soul released in 1965. The Beatles followed up with a stream of classic albums such as Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The White Album and Abbey Road.

In addition to conquering the radio waves, The Beatles also appeared in five motion pictures: A Hard Day's Night (1964), Help! (1965), Magical Mystery Tour (1967),  the animated Yellow Submarine (1968), and the documentary Let It Be (1970).

The Beatles have even made an impact on fabric, as can be seen by the new The Beatles series of novelty cotton fabrics. Many of the fabrics show scenes from The Beatles' 1968 film Yellow Submarine. The psychedelic animated film tells the story of the band's adventures in music-loving Pepperland. The trouble begins when the music-hating Blue Meanies arrive and drain everything of color. Over the course of the film, John, Paul, Ringo and George - together forming Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - help to restore Pepperland to its music-loving ways.

The Beatles series of novelty cotton fabrics are wonderful choices for adding a musical sensibility to your fabric projects. These designer fabric can be used to make blankets, wall hangings, Hawaiian shirts, carrying bags, bed sheets, bedspreads, crafts, pet clothing and more.
