Fresh and Appealing for Summer Smocks, Garden Aprons & Apparel.

Echino fabrics are imported from Japan and come in the brightest, boldest designs. For several years we've carried these unique prints and the Jacquard Summer 2020 collection is fresh and appealing for summer smocks, garden aprons, and apparel.
Trouvaille by AGF Studio from Art Gallery Fabrics is a windfall of eclectic and bold geometric lines enhanced by opulent florals. Add a touch of elegance to your projects with two unexpected color palettes filled with lavish pinks, lavender blues, and vivid teal. Bundles pictured are Wonder and Luck, 8 prints in each bundle or shop by yardage.

Capsules Pacha from AGF Studio for Art Gallery Fabrics is a location past the miles of sand, over the mountains, deep in the southwest, where we enter the whimsical world of Pacha. Gentle creatures like llamas etch their way through a mainly black and white desert scene, sprinkled with bits of color in marigold yellow, sage green, and soft peaches.

Prism by Giucy Giuce for Andover Fabrics

The Prism fabric collection by Giucy Giuce is 100% cotton with bold colors, abstract splatter and spots, plus a funky geometric print called prism. Find a handful of new Spectrastatic coordinates and our bundles called Shining Sea and Mountains Majesty to make your next quilt or patchwork sewing project.

Can't Stop, Won't Stop Making Masks For PPE

Sewing Masks & Our Contribution to PPE Masks

With the generous donation from Birch Organic Fabrics, Fabricworm shipped several requests totaling over 550 yards of cotton woven fabrics for mask makers and organizations this year. Over 5,220 general mask and N95 mask covers have been sewn and donated for front line workers and essential employees from California to New York! That's incredible! Thank you to the makers and people who have donated time, or organized the distribution efforts. We. See. You. Thank you so much for sewing. These images below are just some of the ones sent in to us or tagged us from Instagram and Facebook. Volunteers are from all over the US and still continue to sew masks for requests.

Lauren Smith Janzen of Playroom Workshop and Sew Ready Kit Organizer, Million Mask Challenge - Virginia/DC/Maryland shared:
"Fabricworm's 100 yard donation inspired our Million Mask Challenge group to create the Sew Ready Kit program. Local sewists request a kit of precut fabric and elastic or twill, and we prepare the kit for pick-up or delivery. We worked through the Birch Organic fabric in April and May. We have continued the program with weekly kits and have now sent out over 16,000 precut mask and scrub cap kits. I credit your donation with pushing us to action to figure out how best to mobilize volunteers and distribute kits so that masks could be sewn as quickly as possible to fill area healthcare requests. 

One last note: I regret that I do not have photos from healthcare workers to share. Any "thank you" photos have been few, but every mask that we handed out filled a direct request from a healthcare provider, front line worker, or other essential personnel in the Washington, D.C. region. I am truly thankful for your generous involvement in the early weeks of need."

Winter Rose, Yuletide, Ombre Snowflake, Flurry & Tahoe Ski Week Holiday Collections

Yuletide & Winter Rose

Yuletide by Makower UK is a celebration of winter holidays and Christmas with an inspired palette of festive green & red. The coordinates are Ombre Snowflake by Makower UK and have a double border of falling snow drops and snowflakes in metallic ink.
Winter Rose from Andover Fabrics is also a winter delight. It boasts several holly and holly berry prints in the colors of rich reds and forest greens. The simple string lights are lovely.

Flurry from Ruby Star Society

Flurry is a wintertime fabric collection from Ruby Star Society collaboration by Sarah Watts, Rashida Coleman-Hale, Alexia Marcelle Abegg, and Kimberly Kight. This winter theme is a cute and lighthearted take for children and adults alike. One print also features gold metallic for that holiday shimmer.

The Flurry Santa Hat is a project sheet from Ruby Star Society to create adult sized hats. Included are instructions to customize sizes and even fit children. This sewing pattern is half yard friendly. See below.

Tahoe Ski Week by Mara Penny for Moda

Tahoe Ski Week by Mara Penny is a wonderful, seasonal collection with skis, snowflakes, plaid, and other skiing themed prints. Perhaps this collection will inspire you to plan a trip to the slopes! Tahoe Ski Week is a fun wintry mix for everyone.
Last week we committed to donate 10% of proceeds from our 4th of July fabric sale to Los Angeles children's art program, Create Now. With your orders our donation amount of $650 will be doubled for a 20% total donation of $1,300. We also expect to sponsor the Create Now fashion and sewing programs next season with fabrics later this year.
