Just In: Apparel goodies!

by Gina

Last week I hopped a plane to LA to meet with some vendors on their turf. It was a treat! It was so fun to mill about their space and get to pick and choose whatever I saw, not limited to what they’re able to get into a suitcase, or two or three and bring up this way. Cameron and Adrianna spent the first few days of the week getting it out for you all, and it’s a great collection of goodies. Here are a few shots, but honestly, I was busy with continuing the process of getting them ready, so this is not a complete showing of all we have. Pop over to our Instagram to see more photos, and better yet, stop in and gaze upon them, feel them and imagine something great in your world made from them!

Just In: Organic cotton, Apparel Fabrics, Flannel!

This week we got in a whole range of goodies, perfect for sewists of all levels and departments. Staying true to our school we picked the best of the bunch and are pleased to present you with the highest quality goods we could get our paws on. Here is a preview of what’s new this week:

Let’s start with our apparel fabrics. Here we have some new knits to the team, selected in a way that you could start a mini collection with! Or have a perfect ensemble of matching garments to treat yourself to. (these would be great for the Marianne dress, or Renfrew top)

Although it is going to be chilly outside for quite some time yet, we couldn’t help but pass up these darling lace pieces. You could get a head start on spring or summer garments with these beauties!

These fabrics you have to see in person, as the camera doesn’t do justice to their irridescence. The two on the left are light weight and semi sheer 100% silk, with different color warp and weft threads. The one on the right is a dreamy voile that drapes and feels just as smooth as the silks.

To help keep you on track with fabric appropriate for our current weather situation, here are some medium weight fabrics. From the right we have a super soft terry knit, a stretch striped twill, and a bottom weight woven cotton.

Here are some more marvelous knits that would be great in one of our newer patterns. How about a Linden sweatshirt in the top railroad stripe knit? Or a Strathcona Henley in the bottom reversible speckled grey knit?

To really intice your taste buds, check out this 100% wool herringbone. This would make a great coat for late winter/early spring; or a snazzy suit.

More fabrics with a glorious hand are these cotton voiles (ends) and silks (middles)

World travels has been on our minds lately, and to inspire 2015 travels and map your routes check out this great print.

Just in today, we received a big ol’ box from one of our favorite organic cotton companies, and we are stoked to have a collection of cottons from them! The two on the left are voiles, the two on the right are knits.

We love all things Charley Harper here, so we stocked up on these organic cottons with his lovely designs. These charmers are quilting weight cotton.

Here we have organic cotton canvas!

Last but not least, we got in a new mini collection of sock monkey flannel.

Happy sewing and see you soon!

Another shipment of apparel goods arrived this past week, including these gorgeous silk prints:

 Cozy knits, the one on the top right is a wool blend, perfect for a new winter sweater!

And a sweet group from Cloud 9’s group, “Wildwood” by Elizabeth Olwen.

See you soon!
