Have you visited our shop lately? Please say yes! We are so over the moon with the new look and feel of the shop and hope you are too. There are still minor tweaks being made here and there; if you notice something hinkey or have a comment about how things are working (or not) we’d love to hear about it.
One thing I’d like to take just a second to talk about is the ‘fly out’ menu. If you like you can just hover until you get where you want to click. If fly-outs make you crazy then you can click on the pink box at any time and be taken to that sub category
New this week
That funny monkey, Bobby Jack, makes an appearance on jersey knit. These are great prints for any age. With peace signs and monkey/cross bones you can sew this fabric for older kids and tweens without a hitch. And I don’t know a toddler that would like a monkey blowing bubble gum bubbles!
We also recently added some fabulous cotton lycra jersey stripes. These are sample rolls for next spring so you’re sure to get lots of mileage out of the great peacock blue, greens and pinks! These fabrics lean to the heavy side on weight, and have great stretch and recovery. They are perfect for leggings or to use for the top part of a bodice with a lighter knits flowing below!
Christmas and winter knits are here! There are only 202 days left until the big day and here’s no time like the present to start planning your winter sewing. I wonder if sewing winter themed items in the heat of summer will keep you cool?
A sweet little fairy knit is about to sprinkle some magic dust around here; I only hope she knows the spell for ‘tidy up’ I could really use some help! In addition, there are mini-dinosaurs, more star fabric, all kinds of Halloween and even some colorful stripes.
Available for pre-order is this totally radical, groovy, cotton poly jersey. It’s expected to be here by Thursday, be the first to get this funky fabric by pre-ordering it today.
Stenzo fabrics are also in route, we’ve got a smattering of delightful knits and poplins ordered and can’t wait until they get here!
Fresh from Europe we have replenished our supply of Campan knit and added some funky retro poplins. Guys, this stuff is simply the best!
Speaking of Euro imports, we have some on sale right now! You must experience the awesomeness that is European Fabrics! These are the same high quality fabrics that Hilco offers. The knits are all 95% cotton 5% lycra and are the best weight – not to heavy not too light- and oh so soft! This week only you can try them for only $12.49 a yard! Poplins, linen and also seersucker are also included in the sale, at great savings.
