Featured Fabrics

Cashmere Wool in Plum

$70.00

This 100% wool Cashmere is brushed on one side, with the weave subtly visible on the other. It’s luxuriously soft and drapey, and there’s a slight sheen in the light on the brushed side.

Make a stunning winter coat with this fabric – it’ll be one you’ll want to hang on to for the rest of your life. We suggest the Flatiron Coat, Goldstream Peacoat, and Heather Blazer as dressier options, and the Iflord Jacket as a more casual look. 

Sold by the yard, this fabric comes in multiple gorgeous colors.

Guatemalan Striped Cotton in Earth

$17.90

These Guatemalan hand-woven fabrics offer a combination of cultural richness, intricate craftsmanship, vibrant colors, and sustainability. They provide an opportunity to create unique, visually stunning garments while also supporting the preservation of a valuable cultural tradition.

They are softer to the touch than one might initially expect, being hand woven, while still maintaining a rustic texture. They are also light enough to drape well. 

We suggest using these unique fabrics to make a Tropical Shirt or Gardenia Dress

Note that these fabrics are 35” wide, as opposed to the more common 45-60”, so prepare to purchase more yardage than listed on patterns.

Theory Stretch Shirting in Navy

$18.00

This designer fabric has all the perks of a cotton woven (easy sewing, breathable, washable), but with added stretch as a bonus! It’s lightweight and soft to the touch. 

With 15% crosswise stretch, substitute this fabric in for woven patterns that could use a little extra give at the bust, waist, or hips. Use the single directional stretch to your advantage by having it wrap around your body. 

We suggest making a  Saltwater Slip or Verdun Woven T-Shirt with this fabric. 

Sold by the yard.

Eden Landscape Rayon in Multi

$15.90

From Eden, a fabric collection by Boccaccini Meadows for Figo, may these beautiful prints serve as a visual reminder to protect and preserve our wild spaces. This collection was inspired by the unspoiled ecosystems where flora and fauna flourish – our Earth’s Edens.

Use this drapey, lightweight rayon to make a vibrant Shelby Romper, TLC Caftan, or Linda Tunic!

Sold by the yard.

Robert Kaufman Ventana Twill in Old Blue

$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.

Woven Checked Brushed Cotton in Burgundy

$11.80

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

Because this cotton is brushed, it’s extra soft, resembling a lightweight flannel.

We suggest using these fabrics to make a Cottage Shirt or Etta Dress!

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

Sold by the yard.

Brushstrokes Stretch Corduroy in Blue

$19.00

Enviro Repreve Fleece in Blue Smoke

$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 Quilted Knit in Black and White

$20.00

This designer quilted cotton knit is absolutely swoon-worthy!

A medium-weight fabric comprised of two soft knits, held together by a grid of quilted 2″ squares, the right side is black and white, the wrong side just white. Between the knit layers within each quilted square is a soft padding that makes this fabric extra cushy and cozy! It also has excellent drape, 35% crosswise stretch and 15% lengthwise stretch.

It would make a fabulous Thread Theory Camanah Sweater or Cosmos Sweatshirt & Elemental Skirt set!

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!
