New From Quarter Report

  There are still a few more companies to cover for Quilt Market, and while those posts are in the works, I thought I’d show you some of the new stuff at Japan’s Quarter Report, including their in-house designs and beautiful lace by Reiko Oka (middle left). I have subscribed to their newsletter and and [...]

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 [...]

Patterned Velvets and Chenilles at High Fashion Home

High Fashion Home has these patterned poly-blend velvets and chenilles for people who are really serious about their retro. Then again I can see these upholstery fabrics having their place in a fashion-forward living space too (with the kind of furniture High Fashion Home offers). The online shop also has lots of velvet solids, Sunbrella, [...]

Striped Knits at Raystitch

Related posts: Knits at Mussukat Preview: Elk Grove Knits from [...]

New Fabrics at Anna Ka Bazaar

Simple, quiet, but beautiful prints for fashion are, for some reason, really hard to find. If this is your style (it is most definitely mine!) you must check out Anna Ka Bazaar. The shop is headquartered in France but they ship worldwide. Here are several of their newest prints, mostly on lightweight 100% cotton. They [...]

Thai Silks

Thai Silks is perhaps the mother lode of printed silks on the internet. They import silks from Thailand, China, Korea, and India, offering high-quality fabrics at reasonable prices. (Not bargain basement, but this is quality silk we’re talking about. And if you’re a professional or a school, they have discounts for you.) One thing I [...]

Lauren’s shop is both online and brick and mortar — her Los Angeles, California shop is a haven for modern quilters, becoming a popular destination for touring designers and authors. In [...]
