HAPPY NEW YEAR!
From all of us at Our Social Fabric, here’s hoping that you had a very Merry Christmas and that you’re looking forward to a bright and prosperous New Year. We missed you all during our break in December but want you to know that Santa’s little Elves have been busy stocking the shelves with plenty of new fabric, notions and home décor. Our Pop-Up Sale is this Thursday, January 4th at Our Social Fabric— here’s what we have in store for you:
Vinyl, Faux-Suede and Velvet
This medium-weight, great quality vinyl is available in medium green and dark brown. One of the “OSF gals” made a large weekender bag using the brown vinyl (looks like leather), dark jacquard floral and navy blue faux-suede – see picture. Keep an eye out for the display in the shop with all the coordinating fabrics so you can make your very own weekender bag or fabulous new fancy mini-purse!
So, home décor fabric are not just for decorating and can range from light-weight drapery to upholstery weights – some are woven with thicker fibers and are stabilized and backed, making them perfect for tote bags, purses, yoga mat bags and more. Home décor fabrics are also great for theatre period costumes as they stand up to abuse through the years of performances. Check out our excellent selection of fabrics, both rolled and on the bolt. Yes, we’ll cut a piece from a bolt if you just need a bit.
Thread & Notions
Always a staple in our shop, lots of colours and varieties of cone & serger thread to choose from, newly packaged in convenient “grab and go” $2 packs. The notions section is packed – bet we’ve got what you’re looking for (snaps, hooks and eyes, sewing tools together with lots of buttons including and supply of mother of pearl buttons!)
Baby, it’s cold outside and we have lots of fleece to give you the warm fuzzies including
our Black Technical Fleece, available in 3m lengths or by the bolt for $80. Also, a small quantity of 100% cotton, grape-coloured fleece, as advertised in our Instagram Post.
