Denver Fabrics

Certainly one of the widest, if not THE widest selection of fashion fabrics online can be found at Denver Fabrics (and their alias Fashion Fabrics Club). Most are a great value, and even better if you pay attention to the Sale Alerts. I found these prints just from looking at the first couple THOUSAND selections [...]

Minä Perhonen

Japanese fashion legend Mina Perhonen (“I Butterfly” in Finnish) archives its fabrics on their website — do any other fashion brands do this? Looking back (all the way to 1997) it shows how ahead-of-the-curve yet timeless they are. Their collection always incorporates embellished/embroidered textiles as well as prints and wovens — too bad they’re not [...]

April Johnston Fashion Fabrics at Joann’s

Striped Knits at Raystitch

Spotted this entrancing stack of striped knits at Raystitch in the U.K. I know there are more and more striped knits available for fashion sewing all the time, but everyone has their preferences on colors and stripe widths — to me, these are just perfect.

Hamburger Liebe for Michas Stoffecke

You may know German designer Susanne Firmenich, aka Hamburger Liebe, from her Spoonflower designs, which I have featured here before. Some of her Spoonflower designs and dozens more were picked up by two European companies — Hilco, which I’ll show you in the next post, and Michas Stoffecke. Michas Stoffecke has produced a whole slew of designs, and if you count up all [...]
