Well, it’s here! And it’s time to get in on all the sewing fun. Today Colette Patterns launched a new blouse pattern, the Aster, and we have it here in the store! It will be on our website soon, but for now come to our 3rd floor to snag a copy. Along with this newest addition, we have a whole set of Colette patterns, and we just love them. Ranging in silhouettes and sizes, as well as some men’s wear, Colette Patterns is an excellent alternative to buying from large chain companies. Take a peek!

Britex is excited to announce that our annual Remnant Sale will be happening in our store on May 8th & 9th. This sale will be a brick and mortar event, located at our Geary Street location in San Francsisco, on our fourth floor where all remnants will be 50% off. We’ve got piles of gorgeous fabrics just waiting to get taken home. Make sure to mark your calendar now and arrive when we open — that line starts early! And, since it’s Mother’s Day weekend, you could even bring your mum for a celebratory day-out. We hope to see you then!
Do you reuse your bags? For example, going down to the farmer’s market or lugging items from the car. Even storing weird bits and pieces around the house! Well, you can now get your very own reuseable bag with our logo and use it to win a $50 gift certificate to Britex Fabrics. And it’s very simple!
Have you ever wanted to carry your sewing stuff in a bag that you’re proud of? Don’t live in California and can’t get a beautiful Britex bag at our store? Well never fear! Now you can get your very own bag and all you need to do is purchase some of our gorgeous fabrics online. Place a fabric yardage order through our online store, submit it, and we will tuck it in with your shipment when it sends out. And voilà! You are ready to hit the town and show off where you get all of your fine fabrics.
Every year, for the past few years, we have proudly sponsored the National Make it With Wool, a competition encouraging the joy and versatility of sewing with wool. Members are asked to create an entire outfit, for themselves, out of all wool (or 60% wool blends) using techniques such as sewing, knitting, and crocheting. Each competitor is entered into Regionals, and if chosen, will then move on to Nationals. This year the National competition was held in Reno, CA and produced the following winners.
