Hi everyone—Happy New Year from all of us at Our Social Fabric. We’ve missed you! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and were blessed with the company of family and friends. Donations have been pouring in so, we have lots to share with you at our next Sale Event on Thursday, January 10, 2-8pm.
Home Décor Designer Samples
Oh my! We have racks and racks of scrumptious designer samples priced at $1ea, 2 for $1, and 4 for $1. Pieces can be combined to create textured bags, luxurious cushions or, if you love quilting and piecing, try making a pouf/foot stool like the one in the photo. This pouf is stuffed with fabric scraps, old curtains and worn out t-shirts! Now that’s what I call recycling!
Quilting Cottons and Naturals
We’ve received bins of quilting cottons (lots of contemporary designs), pieces of batik and some wool. We know how much you all love those natural fibers! You can find these down the centre aisle with all the Naturals.
Knits, Lycra and Power Mesh
Lots of synthetic and natural knits available. Medium and light weight lycra also available in many colours including charcoal, cream, brown, plum and dark purple—this fabric is great for active wear, leggings, jackets, tanks—so versatile and comfy. Stretchy Power Mesh also available in hot pink, dark purple and turquoise. Great additions for your active wear wardrobe and as semi-transparent accents in leggings and tops.
We are offering a “Pattern Drafting and Sewing from Ready to Wear” class next Thursday, January 10, from 4 to 8:00pm. Students will create a pattern from a ready-to-wear knit garment of their choosing and then use the pattern to cut out and sew a garment. We have 5 spots available in this class—click here to go to the on-line registration form. If the class fills, we will add you to our wait list.
