Featured Fabrics

Art Gallery Owl Things Floral Flannel in Teal

Designed by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics’ Willow collection, this print is made from OEKO-TEX certified 100% Cotton. You can rest assured that it’s created without compromising the planet!

Use this flannel as a backing for a Fancy Fox Quilt or make a Grainline Linden Sweatshirt!

Haptic Dots Cotton in Gold

$9.37

The Haptic collection would be perfect for a spring or summer dress or blouse. This fabric has a soft drape with minimal structure and the weave makes it easy to work with. The dots are woven into the fabric, giving it an effect of movement that adds a simple dimension to any garment.

We recommend the Sew House 7 Wildwood Wrap Dress or the Frankie Shirt pattern by Sewing Workshop for an easy, breezy spring or summer look

Nikko Embroidered Cotton in Peach

$11.80

This free-trade, medium weight cotton from India has beautiful texture. It is more loosely woven than a quilting cotton, which gives it a soft drape perfect for tops, dresses, shirts, and more.

Pre-wash. Shrinks 2% crosswise and 5% lengthwise.

7.2oz Dry Cotton Oilskin in Storm

$40.35

This high quality dry oilskin, made in the UK, is drier and crisper than other oilskins, (and less waxy than a traditional waxed cotton) with a matt appearance.

A water resistant (though not water proof) fabric, Dry Oilskin is treated with an emulsified wax. This binds a wax-based product with water to give a non-oily finish, then the solutions are heat-processed into the cloth for a longer lasting finish and higher performance. Plus, the finish is vegan!

Use this gorgeous fabric to make any Klum House bag, a M&M Landgate Jacket or a beautiful, lined Thayer Jacket!

DETAILS

  • Hand wash only.
  • Use a cool setting on your iron.
  • Unlike normal oilskin there would be no oil transfer so you don’t need to line your garment or bag.
  • After consistent use, you can easily ‘re-proof’ the water resistance using Merchant & Mills Reproofing Spray.

Robert Kaufman Brussels Washer Linen in Buttercup

$11.60

This linen-rayon blend has a nice heft but is also drapey – and, it’s washable! By combining rayon with linen, Robert Kaufman has taken the stiffness out of the linen. Think unstructured jacket or flowy pants. 

This fabric softens after washing, and wrinkles slightly but much less than its 100% linen cousin. Highly versatile, you can make anything from the Closet Core Fiona Dress to The Sewing Workshop Liberty Shirt to the M&M 101 Trousers using this awesome, affordable fabric.

Dashwood Studio Bouquet Toss Rayon in Pink

$15.90

From UK design house Dashwood Studios, this rayon features a 10″ repeat of a modern floral print. Made without harmful dies, it is soft and floaty, perfect to make a summer blouse or dress! We suggest making a Florence Top or Holyoke Dress or Skirt!

Raw Silk Noil in Canard

$25.40

Silk Noil is soft, breathable, and oh-so-sewable! It’s silk, but it’s not slippery. Instead, it’s slubby and drapey. It also washes well! While it does shrink a bit, you can throw it in the washer and dryer no problem. Try making a flirty Florence Top or Cottage Shirt out of this gorgeous fabric.

AGF Diamond Fragments Knit in Gold

$18.90

Botanical dreams come to life with sweet bouquets and dainty blooms splashed with luminous color in this Art Gallery Fabrics knit. The child-like wonder of verdant flower fields is highlighted with sky blue, coral pinks, and dusty jade as garden memories linger. This soft, drapey fabric is perfect for Sewing Workshops Odette & Ivory tops

Two-way stretch, 80% crosswise and 65% lengthwise.

Pre-wash. Shrinks 3% lengthwise.

Robert Kaufman Big Sur Canvas in Coral Pink

$13.90

Big Sur 100% cotton canvas has a visible weave and feels a lot like Carhartt canvas! It’s on the heavier side at 9.6 oz. per square yard, and we’d love to make a pair of Closet Core Files Morgan Boyfriend Jeans or a Kelly Anorak out of this fabric.

Read more

CS Music Notes Canvas in Natural

$20.80

From Cotton + Steel’s Bramble collection, this musical cotton/linen canvas has more drape than most canvas, plus it’s much softer!

We suggest making pair of Harlene Overalls with this canvas, or mixing it up with our dry oilskins to make a Slabtown Backpack!

Sold by the yard.

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!
