Spring is almost sprung and we’re excited to offer you more amazing deals on fabrics and notions. Our Social Fabric is Vancouver’s non-profit textile recycling initiative – we are volunteer run and our mission is to keep textiles out of the landfill and into the hands of creatives, just like YOU!
MUSLIN and CREAM LACE
Yes, we have muslin squares and off cuts for all your creative projects. Teachers – your art class will love these 30cm to 50cm squares, great for painting, art collage, draw-string bags, and so many more projects.
We also received a large donation of new lace yardage and pieces (see sample) creamy white compliments the muslin for a “natural” look.
BUTTONS and BUCKLES
OMG, bags and bags of buttons, designer/manufacturer sample cards, one of a kind buckles in metal, plastic, wood and more. The one-of-a-kind buttons are great for craft projects, card making, decorating an up-cycled jacket, jeans or tote bag. Our button racks have been restocked with a rainbow of beautiful button sets to go with any outfit.
DINTEX WOOL BLEND SOFT SHELL FLEECE
This soft knit fleece was designed for the equestrian community, it’s soft, movable, wind resistant and warm – great for jackets and coats and perfect for Vancouver’s unpredictable temperatures. A companion to this fabric is a bit thicker with a knit layer- comes in hot pink and brown, with black lining.
BLACK KNIT LINING
A few bolts of black knit linking arrived on our doorstep – this fabric is lightweight, slightly see through and works well as an under-layer for a jumper, chiffon shift or made into casual house pants. Could also work really well for photographer studio back-drop, theatre drapes, Hallowe’en decor and more – ask us about buying by the bolt.
