Seen any good movies (or television series!) that feature fabrics, fashion, or design?
Here's one of my impressions from the past year or so.
Phantom Thread (2017)
Forgettable. Weird. It was fun to think that Daniel Day Lewis did actually make that dress though, as he immersed himself in the role. He always does!
We've decided to close the Culpeper storefront and concentrate on our online business. It's fun to have a storefront, but it's also practical to use our resources wisely. We've been getting our warehouse ready and as soon as our storefront inventory is liquidated we will be expanding our online store exponentially!
In the meantime, if you are in the Culpeper area (between Washington DC and Charlottesville), visit our store on weekends to get big savings and help us liquidate our storefront inventory! There's plenty here to make your sewing dreams come true.
Minimum one yard purchases or whole piece. Inventory at the storefront will not be replenished, so first come, first served!
FABRICS: 30% to 50% off as marked.
SPECIAL FABRIC GROUPINGS: $3.50 to $5.50/yd (no further discount)
TRIMS: 20% to 30% off.
NOTIONS, SEWING SUPPLIES: 30% off.
SPECIALS: discontinued carded buttons 10 cards/$1.00 at entrance (no two alike) (no further discount)
TRUNK SALE: remnants and "goody bags" $1-$5 (no further discount)
These sales discounts apply to our brick and mortar inventory located in Culpeper, Virginia only.
Don't be sad, just come and have fun!
We have cotton bunting in red, white and navy/white star field stripes. Get ready for July 4th with this patriotic extra-wide fabric for your picnics, or display it along the railings at home!
This fabric is 100" wide, with three repeats along the width of the fabric. Each repeat can be used as a strip with a red, white, and blue (the blue has white stars).
To make a bunting effect, use about 2.5 yards. Separate the fabric lengthwise into three strips, each with red, white, and blue included. Gather across one long edge to form a half circle. Each half circle will be about 54" wide and will hang about 20" long.
Racks and racks of European cotton shirtings, linens,
imported cottons, silks, modern fibers, and more,
store hours: Wed-Sat noon to 5 pm
Virtual table, real fabrics!
Here are a couple of beautiful jewel tone taffeta fabrics for your next project. Use them for evening skirts, party dresses, a sample garment, lining, or whatever.
Hot pink, and jewel teal.
Reg. $8.99/yd, now 4 yards for $10.00!
Are you afraid of lace? Saving some lace for a special occasion? Well, news flash. Every day is a special occasion, if you make it one!
Here's a nice dress up/dress down blouse pattern that uses a touch of lace just for the sleeves, but you could make the entire top in lace if you have enough.
If you have some precious lace scraps, about 5/8 yard is enough for both sleeves if it's 36" or more wide.
Or go for it and order something from our lace section online, or come visit us in store for a stunning color selection. Inquiries welcome too.
When we were at our very first location (the Watergate in DC) we had a small box into which we placed those final pieces from each roll. One of our customers called it the "prayer box" because sometimes she found just what she wanted! Other people enjoy the challenge of a piece that's just shy of usable yardage (guilty here :) ).
I'd like to have a "virtual" remnant table just on this blog. These pieces won't be visible on the main website...what do you think?
With all that's going on in the world, it's nice to be able to retreat to our world of fabric and pick out a few each week to share with you. Click on the pictures above for full descriptions. Each one is exceptional!
Maybe you'll be able to find a Lekala pattern to use with one or more. The Lekala site has an Easter sale going on, with the prices only $1.99 and $2.99 each.
Speaking of sales...you miss out if you haven't connected with our Facebook page! Look for the one day only coupon for 25% OFF!
