Janet Clare Artisan Apron
Apron Patterns
Aprons gained popularity a few years back and are still going strong! We love the fun styles that have been created and all the embellishment ideas. The styles range from modern to retro. You can really customize an apron to show the personality of the person who will wear it. Best of all, aprons make a great gifts and they arenít that difficult or time-consuming to create.

Rayon Batik Sew Batiks Jardin Lake
Rayon Batiks
Rayon Batiks are one of our favorite clothing fabrics and we have carried them in the shop for over 15 years. These rayons drape beautifully and will go in the washer and the dryer. We always wash before we construct and allow about 1/4yd for shrinkage. Know you will love these fabrics too.

Telio Digital Print Linen 36052
Linen Fabrics
We love natural fibers and linen is a favorite. We have been thrilled to find Telio out of Canada as they have the most beautiful digitally printed linen. The colors are fabulous and it goes thru the washer and dryer so easily. The wrinkle factor is minimal. Cabana Linen is another great linen suited to our Texas weather as it is lightweight and washable. We have used it to make tops, pants and skirts, and we always wash it before construction.

Loominous by Anna Marie Horner woah009 Field
Loominous by Anna Marie Horner sewing
These fabrics are handwovens so expect some irregularity in trying to match the plaids.
They have been featured in quilt projects, but we love them for clothing projects. They will loose their sheen once laundered and you want to wash them before using.
These are approximate weight to the Kaffe Shot Cottons, so you might want a can of spray starch by your side if you use them for piecing.

Art Gallery Knits Swifting Flora KF201
Knits are back in a big way. One of our favorite suppliers is Art Gallery. They have a great selection of contemporary prints. We always prewash our knits and allow about 1/4yd for shrinkage. Give them a try...youíll love knits again.
Alexander Henry has even gotten into knits.
We have a wonderful selection of Bamboo knits that you will want to try. I would allow 1/4yd for shrinkage just to be safe.

Silk 53 Sapphire
Silk Fabrics
We carry Dupioni silk in solids and plaids. The dupioni is great for crazy quilters as well as the base for many machine embroidery projects.
We suggest you hand wash this silk before you use it to keep it from water spotting later. Also, we suggest you purcase French Fuse to back the silk to keep it from ravelling.

Marcus Brothers 100% wool 57717-117 Green
Have you been looking for 100% wool yardage? We now have 8 great colors. Itís 44/45" wide.

Minkee Charcoal
Minkee Fabrics
Minkee fabrics have been favorites for a long time. They are soft, cuddly and work great as quilt backs or pillow cases. We have just added some of the new prints to go along with our solid Minkee from Shannon Fabrics.

Fireside from Moda 60001-38
Moda Fireside Fabrics
We call Fireside the "adult" minkee. Itís just as soft, but doesnít have the shine of minkee. Itís a great backing for a guy quilt, or anyone who would prefer less shine, and a bit duller color.

These fabrics are 100% polyester and 60" wide.

Double Ikat Bright
Home Dec Weight Fabrics
We carry a variety of fabrics that are heavy enough for home decorating, but we prefer to make garments and tote bags from them. We always wash these fabrics to make them softer and we recommend you do that same. You will want to allow for shrinkage.

Alexander Henry laminate V6218D Zoo
Laminated Fabrics
We have had laminated fabrics in the store for a while and they continue to be very popular. We purchase laminated fabrics from Westminster and Alexander Henry as they are the softest laminate prints around - definitely not the old stiff "oil cloth". Fabrics are either 54" wide or 44" wide, so check each fabricís details.

Weíve made placemats, raincoats, purses and more from these laminates.
