Trick or Treat – it’s that time of year when creatives everywhere are scrambling to whip up costumes for friends and family members. We have what you need for Halloween!
Our Social Fabric is Vancouver’s only non-profit textile recycling initiative – going strong after 10 years and still diverting tons of fabric from the landfill!
Are you decorating your kids school cafeteria for Halloween? Do you need meters and meters of inexpensive black fabric but you don’t have a lot of money? You’re in luck – just for Halloween we have bolts of black, light weight knit, perfect for capes, draping on walls and trees (for that oh, so, creepy effect) little witches and vampires, table cloths, leggings, and whatever you can think of. The best thing about this knit is of course the price $2/meter AND you don’t have to serge or seam finish the edges, just cut and go! Check out the witchy beauty, her dress and cape lining are all made with this black knit.
Costume / Halloween Fabrics
Our feature table will be filled with fabrics perfect for little goblins, princesses, Mortisha Adams and family members, and the ever popular vampires – lots of fabric bundles are 50% off the regular price so get them while they’re here. Oh, and bundles and bundles of tulle in a rainbow of colours for all you ballerinas and dancing queens!
Coating / Coat Weights
Our table of coat weights and wool/wool blend coatings has been refreshed with lots of new prints and weaves – time to start thinking about Christmas gifts or maybe a long-overdue winter coat for you or that someone special.
A new stock of fleece is ready for you to turn into great Christmas stockings, hoodies, and soft toys. Maybe you and your sewing group would like to make fleece mittens and toques for the homeless or grab some of our MEC technical fleece and turn into blankets for the folks in our DTES.
