Wool Crepes and Gabardines in Our Brick-and-mortar Store

blue wools

Lovely blues and greens abound in our signature wool wall on the first floor. We love the cool blues, crisp greens, and the mix of textures and color. Really, once you start browsing the wool wall, touching the fabrics and dreaming of what to sew, you become lost in the possibilities.

Worth the stop in to our brick-and-mortar store, or use our customized swatch service online to pick out fabulous fabrics to make your next coat, suit, or autumn skirt.

Outlander Dress Fabric is Back In Stock (Limited Inventory)

outlander plus fabric for blog

Double bouquet fabric panel (as featured on Outlander) is available for $99 in our brick-and-mortar store, on the second floor in our home furnishing fabric department, or by phone.

If you are interested in ordering a panel, please contact Joie or Dina at 415-392-2910 as soon as possible, as we have limited stock available.

Remember the fabric we featured that Terry Dresbach used to design that amazing dress in the Outlander Starz official trailer and all over the Internet? Well, we originally thought that we wouldn’t be able to get it back in stock, but the manufacturer has made it for us, and we have it available for the general public. The dress is made of a heavy, luxurious furnishing fabric produced in Turkey by one of our favorite sources. Unusually, the floral pattern does not run up the roll, but was designed in panels. Each yard and 1/8 panel contains 2 full bouquets of flowers, and is $99 . We are generally wary of carrying panels like this in the store, because the square design tends to limit application to pillows, ottomans and the like–but we absolutely fell in love with the colors and were confident that our customers would feel the same!
