We have some exciting new products to show you on the fabric front today.
The first is this group tucked away on the organic cotton table-
The Happy Garden collection from Cloud 9 Fabrics.
"Cloud9 Fabrics is passionate about bringing eco-sensible fabrics to the quilt and craft market."
Cloud 9 Fabrics vows to use "100% certified organic cotton in the manufacturing of our base cloths and eco-responsible solvent-free inks and dyes for printing."
(from the Cloud 9 website)
Truly an admirable mission and with these adorable prints you can make a child-friendly and earth-friendly choice for your next sewing project.
Our other new product is the 50% Bamboo and 50% Rayon Xotic Felt from National Nonwovens.
These fat quarters are $5.75 per piece and, depending on demand, we may decide to carry their 40" wide yardage as well.
The addition of bamboo makes Xotic Felt much softer in texture and drape than wool felt or even a rayon/wool blend. When I was at the store today I overheard someone say that she thought at first the fat quarters had some cashmere in them, the hand is just that soft.
We here at Treadle are delighted to be able to carry these and many other sustainable and organic products, and we hope you can come on by and check them out.
Yours in Stitches,
