Full Swing Textiles

{ Moonlight in the Pines }   OK, how have I managed to get this far along without ever hearing of Full Swing Textiles? Full Swing started out as a vintage shop in Newport, Rhode Island in the 1980s. In 1986, they purchased a lot of 16,000 yards of deadstock vintage barkcloth fabric. As that [...]

Horrockses Fabric Prints at the V&A

When I reviewed the Horrockses Fashions book recently, I didn’t realize that the Victoria & Albert Museum Shop would be selling yardage of a couple Horrockses prints (well, metreage!). Be still my beating heart. I might have to brave the terrible exchange rate and international shipping for these, and for the Liberty + V&A fabrics [...]

Japanese Fabric of the Week: Cotton Crayon

Japanese shop Cotton Crayon has lots of retro/repro goodness I haven’t seen elsewhere. (Most of these fabrics can be found on the fourth link down in the left-hand navigation, then click the button at the very bottom of the page to navigate forward.)

Benartex: Let’s Play

I spotted this playground print on someone’s blog today (please let me know in the comments if it’s you!

Japanese Fabric of the Week: Lecien Old New 1930s

Here’s a closer look at Lecien’s Old New Fabric Collection 1930s, which I covered at Quilt Market last October. The Fat Quarter Shop seems to have the best selection at the moment — I’m surprised it’s not in more shops. Aren’t we all suckers for strawberries? See the complete collection archived on Flickr.

RJR: Momma’s Apron Strings

{feed readers, click over to see the fabric slideshow if you don’t see it …} I learned of this brand-new collection through the Fat Quarter Shop‘s Twitter feed … Momma’s Apron Strings, a reproduction line from RJR. This one stands out for including an actual apron pattern pre-printed onto fabric (in two colorways), and ready-to-cut-and-hem [...]

Urban Chiks: Sweet

(feed readers: please click over to see the slideshow, if you don’t mind!) I want to know more about Urban Chiks, who design for Moda. The website doesn’t name names, but says: These two young designers each bring something very different to the drawing board. One has a background in fashion and a flare for [...]
