Join Our Creative Fabric Challenge

From October through February, we are offering two premier made in Italy fabrics for a creative sewing event at a special price of $8.50 a yard to everyone who registers! You will have an opportunity to model your creation during our Open House where we will celebrate the  creativity of our customers with appetizers, wine, and an informal fashion show.


Here's how it works

1. Register: Just ask to see the Creative Challenge Fabrics and sign up when purchasing. 


2. Pick your fabric: We are offering two color choices of the same Italian made Jacquard Dobby weave fabric. One is a warm Brown and the other is a cool Wedgewood Blue. This fabric has a wonderful reverse side with intriguing design elements. The content is: 58% polyester, 38% nylon, 4% elastin with a width is 57 inches. 


3. Sew something: This jacquard weave is ideal for a variety of items including suiting, jacket, skirt, shift dress and pants. Any pattern or design is fair game. We only ask that the majority of the fabric used in your project be one of these. You can share your progress at our monthly “Show and Share” or just surprise us at our open house.


4. Model: Wear your item to our Open House on February 22, 2020 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and share your creation with other appreciative “sewists”. That’s short for “sewing artist”...



Our November 2nd Show & Share topic will cover this Creative Challenge. Come with questions and ideas to spark creativity!
