Numbers Silk

Now that I have bought some, I can share with you knowing that it won’t sell out before I made my move. Keli posted this picture of her “fabric petting zoo” (nice) at her shop Drygoods Design and my eyes went straight to the stripey border print. The silk crepe is from a dress designer [...]

Knits at Mussukat

Finland has a thriving market for garment sewing, especially for kid’s clothes. Pair that with the country’s traditions in print design and, no surprise, there are tons of great apparel fabric prints to be found there. There seem to be quite a few little boutiques that sell knits, velour, terry, bamboo fabrics, and other stretch [...]

They also sell their fabrics to those who would like to DIY instead of (or in addition to!) purchasing finished goods. Petit Pan is inspired by Chinese themes and motifs, which is interesting to see. The collection [...]

Preview: Elk Grove Knits from Birch Fabrics

Birch Fabrics is introducing their first organic knits collection! Elk Grove Knits is expected in stores May 2013 and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of it at Quilt Market (along with the companion quilting cotton and home dec collections). I already have a chevron T-shirt and some elk baby rompers formed in my mind. [...]
