Meet the Sponsors: nido

  Phiona, owner of Burlington, Vermont-based nido always closes her emails with “warmly,” and warmth perfectly encapsulates her shop. The brick-walled retail store and sewing hub just turned three years old (and had an enviable party!), and just visiting the online branch gives a sense of comfort, coziness, openness, and inspiration. She carries the finest modern fabrics [...]

Meet the Sponsors: Voodoo Rabbit

There is no other fabric shop like Voodoo Rabbit. In their own words, “They specialise in a range of fabrics and sewing supplies that match their own tastes — eclectic, rockabilly, retro, vintage, punk, sleek geek, dark and ‘a bit goth.’ … Voodoo Rabbit loves skulls, cherries, black, red, white, space invaders, cotton textiles and [...]

Meet the Sponsors: Drygoods Design

This week’s Meet the Sponsors interview is with the lovely Keli, owner of the new shop Drygoods Design.

Oilcloth From Butik 76

Butik 76 is a small U.S.-based web shop carrying a nicely edited selection of oilcloth (actually laminated cottons, it sounds like) all designed in Denmark and Sweden.

Silk Series: Charmeuse

Emerald silk charmeuse from silkfabrics on Etsy Silk charmeuse is a light-to-medium weight woven fabric with a satin weave. Its front is lustrous, the back is dull. Silk charmeuse, which (I’m fairly sure) is interchangable with “silk satin,” is the ultimate in drapey fabrics, delicate and luxurious, and suitable for flowy gowns, lingerie, scarves, and [...]
