    Halloween is a big deal at Britex! That's why we're supplying you with so much more than just materials this year. The mask-making workshops on October 25 are guaranteed to inspire and transform. A mask is perfect for those that want to keep it simple, but still want to play. It can also be an impressive finishing touch on an already elaborate costume. The workshops are back-to-back on Saturday morning starting at 10:30 and 11:30 and the cost is $15 per person. Get the details and register HERE.

    If you are a long-time customer than you probably already know about our fabulous Halloween staff costume contest that takes place every year. Take a look at last years costumes and see for yourself how committed to a good costume Britex staff can be! Join us on October 25 to vote for the winner and enter for a chance to win a $100 Britex Fabrics gift certificate.

    May 9, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    In remembrance of the marvelous Mister Maurice Sendak, here is a tutorial from Jessyratfink for a “Where the Wild Things Are” hat (including the all-important whiskers.) Max’s growlishly wild hat can be made by following her 16 step directions….pattern included! As Max would say, "Let the wild rumpus start!"
