7 Great Fabrics For Your Stash

There are a number of heirloom fabric staples that are nice to have on hand for any project that may arise. And, with our huge Stock-tober Sale happening in our online shop this October, now is the perfect time to stock up and save! From batiste to cotton to linen, here are seven great fabrics you can add to your stash:


Swiss Nelona

Swiss Nelona – Batiste
This 100% cotton Swiss Nelona batiste is imported from Switzerland. It has a gorgeous sheen with a little body, but is still translucent. It’s easy to work with for machine or hand sewing, smocking or any other heirloom sewing project. 45 inches wide


Victorian Batiste

Victorian Batiste
Victorian batiste is a great alternative for Swiss! It is 100% cotton and slightly heavier than Nelona. It works well for hand and machine sewing and is perfect for blouses and heirloom projects. 45 inches wide 


Imperial Batiste

Imperial Batiste
This imperial batiste is one of our top-sellers! It is made of 65% poly and 35% combed cotton. This combination makes the fabric wrinkle-free, which is absolutely perfect for children’s clothing. 44/45 inches wide


Scalloped Swiss Voile

Scalloped Swiss Voile 
Made in Switzerland, this fabric is 100% cotton and features a scalloped edge on both sides. This fabric was used on Kathy Barnard’s White House Princessdress that was featured on the cover of our April/May 2014 issue of Sew Beautiful. You will love the beautiful floral embroidered details! 50 inches wide


Cotton Lawn
This lightweight cotton lawn from Robert Kaufman Fabrics is very soft. It’s great for heirloom projects, blouses, dresses and more. We have a number of solid colors available, as well as a couple prints in coordinating colors. 44 inches wide


Martha’s Favorite Handkerchief Linen
We searched long and hard for the perfect handkerchief linen, and finally found it with this beautiful fabric. It is ideal for Madeira applique, hand embroidery and all forms of heirloom sewing. 55 inches wide 


Austrian Cashmere

Austrian Cashmere
This 100% Pima mercerized cotton is combed to give it an extra soft finish that makes it feel like cashmere. 60 inches wide
