Have you ever sewn with Shannon Fabrics? We’ve partnered with their company the last couple of years for our live-and-in-person Martha Pullen licensing events, and today we’d like to take a moment to sing their praises. (And offer you a chance to win some of their fabric! But more about that in a minute…)
Shannon Fabrics is the nation’s leading importer and distributor of all types of plush fabrics. In fact, they carry the world’s largest selections of comfy Cuddle® fabrics. They also offer Faux Furs, Embrace® Double Gauze 100% Cotton, super soft Silky Satin fabrics, Cuddle Suede, Terry Cloth and more, in solids and pretty prints developed by both independent and in-house designers. The company offers yardage as well as beautiful kits.
Cuddle is one of their most popular collections. Connie Palmer has taught a Cuddle Blanket Workshop that features a pre-cut kit from Shannon Fabrics at some of the recent Original Sewing & Quilt Expo events. Connie shares some great tips about working with plush fabric here!
We also have an adorable Cuddle Blanket project in store for students in our upcoming Heirloom & Beyond: Essentials to Indulgences licensing. We don’t want to give too much away, but it’s made entirely made of Cuddle fabric and it’s just precious!
Another of Shannon Fabrics popular collections is Embrace Double Gauze. This fabric is 100% cotton, has a very soft hand and comes 48/50” wide. Embrace is ideal for baby blankets, swaddle blankets, quilts, apparel and accessories and is offered in prints and coordinating solids. The Embrace collection may be viewed here on the Shannon Fabrics website.
You can find Shannon Fabrics at our events or at many fabric stores and quilt shops. Use the Shannon Fabrics Store Locator to find local shops that carry their fabric near you!
