Happy Tartan Day!



Happy Tartan Day from Britex Fabrics! Not only were we inspired by this kilt feature in last months San Francisco Magazine issue, but the awesome time-traveling-Scottish Highland show Outlander is back. And we couldn’t be more thrilled, as so many of our products have been used in the costuming of this production. Thanks to costume designer, Terry Dresbach, you can see many of our luscious laces, buttons, silks, and more on the screen. So, honor the Scottish in you and come on down to peek at our wool plaids!

Britex Sponsors: National Make it with Wool

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.

Kris Puckrin – Junior Division (ages 13-16)
