Numbers Silk

Now that I have bought some, I can share with you knowing that it won’t sell out before I made my move. Keli posted this picture of her “fabric petting zoo” (nice) at her shop Drygoods Design and my eyes went straight to the stripey border print. The silk crepe is from a dress designer [...]

Liberty Art Fabrics AW13

{ Manning digital print from the Seen group } The AW13 Liberty Art Fabrics collection is a unique interpretation of the five senses theme. Using the William Morris poem ‘The Earthly Paradise,”  as a taking off point, the collection is divided into six groups: Audio (a collaboration with actress Tamsin Greig), Fragrance (large florals, naturally), [...]

Mociun Fabrics

  Online shop Beklina has exclusive, limited stock fabric yardage from Brooklyn-based designer Caitlin Mociun.

Emma One Sock

Finding great fashion fabrics to sew with takes a certain eye, and the difficulty is compounded by the limitations of online shopping. Unlike quilting cottons, which have a certain level of reliability, you just have to see and feel fashion fabrics before making a commitment. Emma One Sock has always done a great job sourcing [...]

Silk Chiffon Petal Flutter

I fell in love with this fabric a long time ago after seeing it used as curtains in a local coffee shop. I thought it must have been homemade. Then I ran into it several years later at Satin Moon Fabrics in San Francisco (remember, Lisa?). And I just found it again online at New [...]
