Robert Kaufman Ventana Twill in Dark Navy

$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. Sold by the yard.

Herringbone Ponte De Roma in Black

$19.50

We’re in love with this herringbone Ponte form Robert Kaufman. Its ‘wrong’ side has the texture of a fine terry knit while the ‘right’, herringbone side feels like a luxurious flannel! The 65% crosswise and 5% lengthwise stretch make this fabric the perfect candidate for the Jalie 4018 Renee Ponte Pants!

Enviro Repreve Fleece in Garnet

$19.66

This Enviro Repreve fleece is luxuriously soft and hefty with a good amount of drape. In fact, it’s very similar in feel to the fleece that Patagonia uses for their pullovers! It’s made from 100% recycled polyester and features 40% crosswise and 20% lengthwise stretch. Plus, it won’t pill in the wash! We suggest combining two colors to make an Alex Half-Zip Pullover, Toaster Sweater or a snuggly set of slippers with this fabric!

Designer Solarium Rayon Challis in Wine

$25.50

Featuring a large floral design with a 24″ repeat – this stunning rayon is deadstock, meaning we can’t get it again! Lightweight with a ton of lovely drape that billows in the breeze, we suggest sewing a Saltwater Slip or Savannah Shirt Dress with this fabric.

This fashion fabric is sold by the yard.

Melton Wool in Bordeaux

$31.90

Wool Melton is a dense, thick coating with a smooth, almost felted face. It works best with simple, uncluttered designs that have gentle curves. It won’t unravel, and it sheds rain and blocks the wind. This Melton fabric is 55% wool and 45% polyester making it even more durable than 100% wool. A Grainline Cascade Duffle Coat or a Merchant and Mills Strand Coat will look great in this 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!
