Spring Quilt Market 2012: Oilcloth by the Yard

I’m a huge fan of oilcloth and its awesome vintage patterns. There are at least two oilcloth wholesalers routinely at Market — Lauren stopped by Oilcloth by the Yard (who sells retail online as well — yardage and sewn products!) to see what’s up. I love faux bois (woodgrain) fabrics and I love even more [...]

She’s proprietress of the Etsy shops Oilcloth Addict, which offers oilcloth, laminated cottons, and Chalk Cloth by the yard, and Modern June, which offers finished goods made out of these unique, durable, charming fabrics.

Oilcloth From Butik 76

Renaissance Ribbons probably provide most of the woven jaquard and fancier ribbons that you see at your local fabric store. They license designs from popular designers like Sue Spargo and Kaffe Fasset and their [...]

I don’t think Jackie’s boyfriend stands a chance, do you? I love every detail of this fabric. It’s the latest of Heidi Chisholm‘s fabric designs for [...]

New Print from Oilcloth International

Though you have to be careful with what you make out of Oilcloth International‘s products (see safety info here) I find their prints quite irresistible, especially this new one, called Kenya, which comes in three colorways. Birds! Crazy color blocks! Just my thing.It’s not in stores yet as far as I know, but your best [...]

Shine Shine

They didn’t have a website then, but they do now, and it was a delight to discover their other designs by Heidi Chisholm and James Grey. Chisholm’s designs are [...]

Laminated Cotton vs. Oilcloth

On the Pink Chalk Studio blog, Kathy has the lowdown on the differences between the new laminated cottons (from Westminster Fabrics in particular) and oilcloth.
