Spring 2022 Cool Tones Collection

Featured Fabrics

RS Stay Gold Rayon in Pink

$15.90

New from Ruby Star is designer Melody Miller’s Stay Gold Collection. Aptly named, this collection feels like sunset on a summer’s day – bright blooms, moths, and citrus fruits populate a technicolor landscape.

Luxe and drapey, this soft rayon is light without being thin or see-through. Try making an ethereal TATB Martha Dress or a pair of Cashmerette Calder Pants!

$16.50

This 7.5 oz. stretch twill feels like a lightweight denim and has a nice 12% crosswise stretch! It’s the perfect summer fabric, and we’d love to see a cute pair of Getaway Jeans or a Stafford Jacket made from it!

RK Mammoth Flannel in Lilac

$11.50

From Robert Kaufman, these gorgeous plaid flannels feature a combination of richly hued pastels and primary colors. Make a L+C Camp Dress or a pair of Eastwood PJs from this gorgeous fabric

Kendor 16-Wale Stretch Corduroy in Lilac

$25.38

This luxurious corduroy from KenDor Textiles has a touch of spandex to allow 20% crosswise stretch! Wonderfully soft, it is 16 wale, meaning there are 16 “ribs” per inch. At 9.1 ounces per square yard it’s a great weight for kids’ clothing, Tilly and the Buttons Mila Dungarees, or the Closet Core Sasha Trousers!

RK Ehrenstein Illusion Cotton in Turquoise

$11.30

Designed by Vanessa Lillrose & Linda Fitch for Robert Kaufman, the Wishwell: Wilshire cotton collection is made for daydreamers! Featuring a harmonious mix of modern and classic designs (plus a touch of optical illusion!), these fashion cottons are suitable for both quilters and garment makers. A very soft cotton (similar to a lawn or voile), we suggest making a Romy Top or a Posh Blossom quilt with this lovely fabric!

There is nothing like being able to see and feel fabric in person. The information I was able to access related to each selection was so valuable as I begin to sew again and become acquainted with new techniques, patterns, and notions.”

The swatch service is awesome! I have received both cool and warm tones twice now and really enjoyed all of the swatches. It is nice to be able to touch and feel the fabric and see the colors before deciding. Also the pattern suggestions are very helpful. Thank you to The Confident Stitch!”

How awesome is this for all sewists???!!! Swatches delivered to your door so you can feel them, dream about some makes, plan a capsule wardrobe for the season, and get a discount to boot. I live in a rural area and fabric shopping is difficult so this is just brilliant. Highly recommend the service!
