Just In: apparel goods galore!

by Gina

A huge thank you to all of you who made it out for our spring sale. It was a great weekend and we are so very appreciative of all your support! It feels like we are just catching our breath now after spending the past week and a half receiving so many new things. SO many! You can feast your eyes on the beauties below, stop in and check them out in person, or give us a call and we can answer any questions you have and ship out whatever you’d like!

First up, incredible linen gauze from Japan, three colors.

Ponte knits:

Great, soft, drapey terry knits:

(The one on the far right is a light weight sweater knit.)

Linen, linen blends, cotton eyelet, chambray…


Organic cotton knits from Birch Fabrics and the new Alabama Chanin book!

Stretch cotton, cotton flannels, and a whole lot of stripes!

Silks, rayons, a digitally printed cotton twill, and a classic cotton plaid for good measure.


Be sure to check us out on Instagram (@boltfabricpdx)! Happy sewing.



Just In: Unicorns and elephants

by Gina

A smattering of new goodies from the past week or so:

canvas, cotton-linen and mid-weight cotton prints from Japan

An array of denims, varying in color, weight and content. And a super sweet elephant double gauze. Yep, they’ve got red shoes.

Silky soft cotton voile from Art Gallery:

More of Art Gallery’s silky soft hand, but in their mid-weight cotton prints:

And one of our most delightful arrivals is surely the hand spun, hand woven khadi cloth from Women Weave in India. You can see some shots on Instagram here. We will do a more thorough feature on these beauties soon. In the meantime, come and get acquainted with them!

Just In: Japanese shipment has arrived! Valentine's news.

by Gina

This week we welcomed a great shipment of goodies from Japan. These include double gauze and brushed double gauze, cotton linen blends, cotton twill and cotton crepe. Oooo-weee. We’ve been a bit giddy with this arrival. Most of these great beauties are by Nani Iro, Echino and Ellen Luckett Baker. Enjoy!

And, who doesn’t love a good metallic cat?

And from those witty folks at Alexander Henry:

Other news to share this week—Hidden Hearts from Supportland! In honor of Valentine’s Day, you will receive a “hidden heart” on your Supportland account with each purchase between Thursday and Saturday. Then, on Sunday for 24 magic hours, those hearts become 20 merits each (merits used to be “points”) so you can shop to your hearts’ content with your extra points. They will disappear after Sunday.

We’ll be offering a new merit incentive starting today, and running for a month. If you all like it, we’ll keep it going. For 50 merits from you, you’ll receive 20% off your purchase from us! And remember, with those hidden hearts you’ll be earning, you’ll have 50 merits in no time. Check out the Supportland site here.

See you soon!
