Homespun Ticking Fabric




Our newest favorite basic fabric is Ticking, one of the oldest fabrics available.

Its origin dates back to 1000 AD as a utility fabric that was designed to hold down the inside of pillow cases and bedding.
Ticking has come a long way, but was a very important fabric in homes and beds around the world for a long time.
Original ticking was very strong and very tightly woven, decorated with a simple “ticking” stripe in a muted color of brown, grey or blue on a natural canvas background, making it a perfect choice for a utility fabric.
Ticking today is available in a few different weights and while it features the traditional ticking stripe, the weight and weave is softer and easier to work with.
The selection of stripe colors has also expanded.



Ticking can now be seen in home decor projects and is a new staple for interior design projects that have a homespun or a trendy, industrial look.
Paired with burlap, vintage fabrics or modern finishes such as stainless or other metals, ticking is a knock-out.
Basic burlap and canvas has been on the scene for some time, but there is plenty of room for a new craft, fabric basic to shine this fall.
Northcott - Stonehenge Gradations Wide Backing Fabric


Stonehenge Gradations Wide Backing NEW
108 inch 100% cotton wide quilt backing fabric from the Stonehenge Collection designed by Linda Ludovico for Northcott. This is a gorgeous collection that resembles natural marble or granite


Quilt backing fabric shouldn't be an after thought
You use more of it than any other fabric in your quilt, so make it count.
And don't overlook its many other uses- from duvet covers to tablecloths.


t’s very important to purchase high-quality fabric for the back of the quilt as well as for the front.
After so many hours spent creating a lovely quilt top, it is not wise to choose bargain bin fabric for the backing.


The fabulous NEW Gradation Colors are in Stock!

Kona Cotton Solids -Robert Kaufman

2017 Kona Color of the Year Pink Flamingo arrives March





NEW FABRIC COLOR KIT - ALL COLORS PRINTED ON 2/3 YARD KONA FABRIC







I LOVE - LOOOVE SOLIDS!
love how free motion quilting looks on Kona cotton

For Quilts I often decide on my print and then pull colors from that for solids - lots of solids!
Modern Quilters make great use of solids to produce amazing quilts

There’s no getting around it: if you quilt, you definitely need a good collection of cotton solids.
If you sew bags or clothes or home decor projects, you probably do too.
But as far as solids go, there are so many choices.



What our customers say

background fabrics like white I buy by the bolt, or wait for a sale and buy a lot of it. Most solids are cheaper than print fabrics…another reason to love solids!
I usually add 2-3 solids to every quilt depending on the size, not including the background fabric.
Kona Ash and Kona Silver are ones I always buy in bulk.

Cork Fabric & Faux Leather Fabrics


amazing new Fabric!
Cork fabric utilizes the natural beauty and warmth of cork while allowing for the richness and durability of leather.


Cork fabric is called nature’s leather, as it has a similar texture and feel to leather.
Being durable and strong, it can be used in accessories and bags, just like leather.
Apart from being beautiful and soft, the fabric is hypoallergenic, anti-fungal and waterproof.
Therefore, it is clean and easy to maintain.






The cork oak tree is native to the coastal areas of Portugal, Spain and France, and is the national tree of Portugal.
These extraordinary trees thrive for centuries, when their bark is harvested at regular intervals.
The oak tree is unique for this reason, as it is the only tree that survives even after the bark is stripped from it.
Does harvesting cork, destroy the tree?

No! Quite the contrary. In fact, removing the bark once in a decade allows the tree to thrive for two hundred years or more.

From Portugal - Quality Cork
Most of our cork is arriving via Eversewn/ Bernina / Benatex Company -- We do not buy or stock Cork from China

We will only carry from highly recognized suppliers.
Natural cork fabric, perfect for sewing on a home sewing machine! Great for bags and wallets.
The real cork is backed with a thin layer of fabric.
Cork fabric, or cork leather as it is sometimes called, is a high quality fabric produced from thin cork shavings obtained directly from the bark of the cork oak tree.
Much of the production is hand crafted.
The innovative characteristics of cork fabric are unique and original.
Soft to the touch and pleasant to the view
Environmentally friendly and ecologically correct
Easily cleaned and long lasting
Durable as leather, versatile as fabric
Waterproof and stain resistant
Dust, dirt, and grease repellent

From Samantha's Blog

I recently started sewing with cork, and I found it to be quite addictive, so I wanted to share with you a few projects and tips if you're interested in trying it out!
While the cork has extra body and firmness, I like it with the same foam interfacing that I would use when making a structured bag

I was able to sew the cork with my regular sewing machine foot, but when it started getting warmer, the sewing was made easier with use of a Teflon foot (which I use when sewing with vinyl).

ChalkBoard Fabrics

Cure the chalkboard fabric: Lay the fabric right side up, and rub the entire surface with chalkboard chalk, first in the horizontal and then in the vertical direction. Clean the fabric with a damp cloth; then repeat the process. Use a wool setting on your iron and a dry press cloth; press from the wrong side to remove wrinkles. Press seams using a wooden pressing tool, such as the Little Wooden Iron. Stitch with a Teflon Foot for best results. If you use a standard presser foot, use tissue paper or wax paper between the fabric and the presser foot for a smoother glide. Use a size 80 Universal Needle. Pin with Wonder Clips or double-sided basting tape. Set the sewing machine for a longer stitch length, 3.5 mm. Shorter stitches weaken the fabric. Select all-purpose thread for both the needle and the bobbin. Use regular chalkboard chalk or Chalk Markers to write on the chalkboard fabric. (Avoid sidewalk chalk.)



Kraft-Tex Paper Fabric that works just like leather!

Paper That Performs Like Fabric Kraft-tex is a unique paper that mimics the appearance of leather but can be cut, sewn, and washed like fabric. This tough yet supple product is available in natural, Chocolate, Stone, white, and black. Think tote bags, belts, wallets, book covers, home dec projects, and more. 1. Always pre-wash the kraft-tex to allow the kraft-tex to texture evenly. I f you never wash your project it will feel papery and not take advantage of the leather like qualities. If you wash after you make the project the wrinkle texture doesn't come out evenly. 2. Always use HOT HOT Water. If you are going to use the washing machine, use your hottest water setting. But I prefer to heat up a small batch of water and make some tea while the kraft-tex soaks.


Screen Play Totes & Vinyl Mesh

Summery beach bag DIY makes clever use of window screen mesh, which is a cheap, easy-to-use material that can be manipulated like any other fabric.

Sullivans Spray Fabric Stabilizer is a top Favorite with our customers who use Silk Fabrics


Before you begin, there are a few things to keep in mind while sewing silks. A simple way to ensure good stitch quality is to adjust the stitch length. For silks, shorten the stitch length to 2mm; you’ll have fewer puckers. As you sew, hold the fabric both in front of and behind the needle to give the fabric a little tension. Don’t pull the fabric through the machine—just lightly guide it.

After you sew any seam, press it flat to meld the stitches before you proceed to the next step.

I prefer to use IB C glass-head silk pins. Be sure to change your pins often.
Start each project with a new needle, and adjust the size according to the weight of the fabric. A universal needle, size 70/10, is a good starting point.
