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!

We’re Back! + A Little Something New

[NOTE ABOUT PARKING: You are allowed to park in the CVS parking lot next door to our shop if you are a customer of JP Knit & Stitch. Also, please  check our homepage on our website -right here!-for the latest on shop closings, delayed openings, or class cancellations due to extreme winter weather.]

Well, we’ve had our snow day and dug ourselves out and we are back to business as usual. Luckily, that business is inspiring you with warm, woolie yarns and saturated, sunny fabrics. We’ve been getting some amazing inventory in (yes, we’re still getting our deliveries!) so here’s a sample of what you can see in the shop right now:

Malabrigo Rasta: After a long wait, Malabrigo Rasta is back in stock! This is our favorite super bulky. It’s 100% merino and hand dyed, and perfect for all sorts of cozy, bulky accessories. Keep an eye out for more colors as soon as they become available.

Cotton & Steel: As always, it’s worth the wait! We picked our favorite prints from Cotton & Steel’s second collection, which includes metallic canvas, buttery voile, and stunning soft double gauze. 

Doe by Carolyn Friedlander: We love this new collection. It’s perfect for quilting (and tops, and pockets, and bias tape); the low-volume prints play perfectly with our more gregarious prints. We’re finding that these fabrics are working their way into a ton of our projects.

Stop by, see it all in person, and be inspired!
