Featured Fabrics

7.5oz Jetsetter Stretch Twill in Cactus

$17.10

This stretch twill from Robert Kaufman has 15% crosswise stretch. At 7.5 oz per sq yard, it is lighter than most denim and the visible twill weave creates a stunning shine in the light. A perfect blend of drape and structure for pants and jackets, we suggest making a set of Mila Dungarees, Quadra Jeans, or Stafford Jacket with this fabric!

RK Kitchen Window Gingham in Orangeade

$9.40

Designed by Elizabeth Hartman, the Kitchen Window Woven collection features a stunning ombre effect within these gingham lawns. Lightweight and airy with nice drape, this versatile fabric can make a quilt or garment. We suggest making a Rapid City quilt or Savannah Shirtdress with this collection!

Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in Mango

$11.00

Essex linen is 55% linen, 45% cotton, which makes it comfy and washable! Elizabeth Hartman and Carolyn Friedlander both use this versitile fabric in their quilts, and it’s also great for shorts, pants and jackets. We can’t wait to make the Merchant & Mills Rugby Dress or a pair of True Bias Emerson Shorts out of this fabric.

KF 108″ Lotus Leaf Wideback in Jade

$26.00

This popular Kaffe Fassett fabric is now available as a 108″ wide back. With an incredibly soft hand, it is perfect for both quilting and garment making. We suggest backing a colorful Posh Penelope quilt or making a Michelle dress like Kate, which you can read about on the blog, with this fun fabric!

Organic Soy Knit in Chili

$21.76

If you haven’t experienced soy knits yet (and even if you have!), these organic knits will blow your mind! The colors are gorgeous, the fabric doesn’t pill, and the weight is just right. Plus, it has 85% crosswise & 60% lengthwise stretch with excellent drape and recovery. And, if that wasn’t high enough praise, my 20-something daughters have stolen all the tees I’ve ever made for myself out of this knit! We suggest making a Concord Tee or Easton Cowl-Neck Tee with this knit.

The Rowdy Patch Tencel in Teal

$26.00

Introducing Kaleidoscope Studio’s debut collection – Avant Garden. This soft, mid-weight twill weave is 100% Lyocell.

Lyocell – made from cellulose fibre – is similar to rayon. However, the dry jet-wet spinning method used to manufacture it requires much less water and no harmful chemicals, so it’s better for the environment!

This vibrant fabric, which features a lovely heft and drape, would make a darling Closet Case Fiore Skirt a Holyoke Maxi Dress, or a show-stopping pair of Emerson Pants!

Hokkoh Polka Dots Lawn in Teal Green

$25.20

This super soft, Japanese cotton lawn is made from organic Turkish cotton! Very lightweight, it features a good mix of structure and drape, as well as a smattering of stunning polka dots! Make a marvelous M&M Edie TopWBM Tropical Shirt, or the Liesl & Co. Fira Dress!

Robert Kaufman Ventana Twill in Brick Brown

$11.30

One of our favorite fabrics, Ventana twill is a soft, mid to heavy-weight cotton with saturated color. Not too stiff at 7.6 oz, it’s excellent for jackets, pants, and skirts. We’d love to use this for a pair of True Bias Lander Pants or a Merchant & Mills Ottoline Jacket!

Care instructions: Safe to wash and dry. Will shrink so be sure to pre-wash.

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!
