Entries in apparel fabric (9)
The array in the latest shipment of apparel goods is great—knits, both sweater and jersey, light weight, woven cotton, a brightly colored synthetic blend, and a couple of gorgeous silks (not pictured). We’ll post a couple of pics via Instagram of those beauties. (You can find our Instagram photos on our website.)
Lizzy House’s latest, “Catnap” arrived yesterday. Snappy color combos and amusing kitties and mice.
I love how Lonni Rossi uses metallic in her designs. Subtle, but impressive (top image).
And, the folks at Alexander Henry delight, as usual, with witty and colorful prints. (lower image).
Have you checked out our book selection lately? I have to say, while doing inventory a couple of weeks ago, I was able to look at every single title we carry and I was impressed. It’s a good range of topics and styles. This is the newest title to our collection. Looks good…
Hope to see you soon!
I often joke around here about how fast April’s hands must move to be able to rearrange the store so quickly to accommodate new things. She worked her magic again yesterday. I came in this morning to find the huge pile of new tubes of apparel fabric shrunk down to just two pieces left needing a home.
I recently had a round of appointments with jobber who purchase fabric from designers and then parcel it out to retail stores and other designers. This means we get some really interesting items that you may recognize from Banana Republic, J.Crew, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein…Let’s start showing them off, shall we?
Beautiful muted tones in these cottons. A great bottom weight brushed twill on the far left, a super soft, grown up flannel in taupe (and we have navy too, not shown) from Marc Jacobs, two hand dyed gorgeous cottons, an embroidered piece and the J.Crew print cotton on the right. I love the pop of the royal blue in there!
A couple of bold graphic heavier weight cottons.
I’ve started to dabble in poly prints. Knits on the right, chiffon on the left from Banana Republic. We also picked up a couple of solid color poly ponte knits in grey and red and a quite amazing silver sparkle red poly knit. Perfect for so many occasions!
These beauties are silk cotton blends on the left to center and all silk on the right. Lovely.
We’ve received a lot this past week. In addition to all those great goodies, we have some organic cottons to show off:
A new line of organic cotton prints from Moda and new organic cotton flannel (it’s soft!) from Cloud 9:
And, not pictured, we have pieces from the Eiko line from Birch Fabrics, and more colors of those fabulous textured solids from Andover.
If you’ve started to think about and possible plan holiday sewing, we do have a nice collection of winter/ Christmas oriented prints for you. Just ask, we’re happy to show you where they are!

We’re up to ears in new fabric! A few shots of some of the latest arrives:
Take a Hike from Dear Stella, cute marshmallows on skewers, campfires, canoes…
New apparel cottons and cotton blends. That sweet silver and blue petal print on the far right is a luscious silk cotton blend.
A few more incredible Liberty of London Tana lawn prints, including one from their artist series in the center.
The beginning of our wool for the season has arrived. More just came in last night too! Don’t forget to check the sale section for other wools.
And, be sure to check out our Instagram feed on our website (or via Instagram, of course) to see some new ribbons and (oh my gosh!) amazing digitally printed drapey, drapey goodies! City scenes, trees, florals…they are really special!
