fabric

We carry a carefully selected range of fabrics with an emphasis on independent designers, organic fabrics, and Japanese imports. Some of the companies and designers that inspire us are Alexander Henry, Birch Organics, Heather Ross, and Nani Iro to name a few. We are constantly on the lookout for fresh, new sources for great fabric so check in often to see what’s new on our shelves.

At JP Knit & Stitch we love sewing patterns! We stock Oliver + S, Amy Butler, Colette, Heather Bailey, Anna Maria Horner, and more. We carry most of the basic sewing supplies such as scissors, tape measures, rotary cutters, pins, needles, thread, pin cushions, and cotton stuffing, along with some fun and hard to find items such as collar turners and bias tape makers. Come in and browse our ever-expanding collection of tools!

HAPPY SEWING!

Be Inspired: Chambray

We just got four soft, lovely bolts of cotton chambray from Robert Kaufman. This fabric needs to be felt to be believed; it’s lighter than denim without being sheer, perfect for spring and (dare I say it?!) summer tops and dresses.

JPK&S Crafty Holiday Gift Guide #4

Flannel Baby Quilt!

I don’t know about you, but there are a ton of new babies in my life this year! The little guys are fun to craft for, which inspired Gift Guide idea #4: a flannel baby quilt! Here’s how:

  • Choose 1 1/4 yards of your two favorite flannels. We’ve got cotton flannels in gorgeous plaids,  sophisicated herringbone and, of course, foxes!
  • Machine wash your fabric.
  • Trim both pieces so that they are the same size. Lay the pieces with the wrong sides together. (You can also sandwich batting in between, but this is optional.)
  • Safety pin or baste the layers together, then quilt them with lines of machine stitching.
  • Bind the edges with a colorful bias tape (or make your own).

This is a cuddly, relaxing project you can complete in an afternoon! I’m afraid there’s just a materials picture today, since the quilt I made is currently under a baby!

This Gift Guide was brought to you by Eloise (teacher + crafter + JPK&S-er)!
