  • Large Floral Cotton Print Dress (We Love Our Customers)

    May 22, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

     dress-for-blog
    Our customer Gabriella Gomez came into our store a few months ago looking for a fabulous floral print cotton to create a dress. She found Aleks on the second floor in our home decor fabric department extremely helpful when choosing a cotton fabric for her dress. She finished the dress in early March, and it came out beautifully. Everyone at the fashion show she was involved with thought it was from a store, and not a student designed dress. She wrote us to thank us for helping her to pick out the most "gorgeous fabric possible". The fabric is an exquisitely hand screen printed cotton from France.

  • Warm & Cozy: Julia's Tips For Sewing With Wool

    January 18, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    wooltweedjacket

    Julia on craftsy.com explains the benefits and delights of sewing with wool, as well as specialized sewing and care tips. Since wool retains heat and keeps heat out, it is an excellent fabric to use to keep cool in summer and warm in winter. Wool is absorbent and can absorb up to 1/3 of its weight in moisture. It's hypoallergenic, as well as wrinkle resistant, and when cared for properly it should last a very long time. We love the garments she uses to illustrate her suggestions...everything from elegant sheath dresses to cozy plaid jackets. For tips and treats, please visit Julia's blog post, Warm & Cozy: Essential Tips for Sewing with Wool!

    This is a simple DIY card holder tutorial by Lucy in Manchester, UK. Lucy teaches sewing and quilting classes and blogs under Charm About You. You can fit at least 3 or 4 cards in each pocket. You can use thread that is the same color as your fabric or leather, or you can use a contrasting color to make the stitching pop. This project only requires 3 cuts! You will need 1 piece of felt, (available on the third floor of our brick-and-mortar store) medium weight fabric or leather (available on the fourth floor of our brick-and-mortar store) that is 8" x 3" and 2 pieces that are 3" x 3 1/4". You have the option of creating a hole on each side to make it easier to slip your cards in and out or taking the easier route and not creating holes. For the complete project, please visit Lucy's tutorial here.
