Last-Minute Gifts

Still looking for a last-minute gift?  Treadle has you covered!

Cat In the Hat fleece panels (seen here) are back in stock.  Nothing could be easier; just cut the panel (or have us do it for you) and bind or fringe the edges.  We have coordinating allover prints if you want to back your panel.

Sewing kits are a great little stocking stuffer, even for those who don't sew much, since everyone needs to replace a button now and then.  We carry many styles in handy cases.

We also have a beautiful selection of employee-made gifts, including baby booties, holiday ornaments, needle cases, pincushions, and more.

The rayon batik scarves are ideal gifts.  With so many colors and patterns, you'll find one for everyone on your list.

And of course, a Treadle gift certificate is always appreciated by the discerning sewist!

Nancy Drew Prints

We have a new fabric collection at Treadle that's sure to appeal to the girl-sleuth-wannabe in all of us:

These cotton prints are emblazoned with vintage Nancy Drew book covers and illustrations.  The large panel  features full book covers; the coordinate fabrics include little magnifying glasses on black and a bookshelf complete with various Nancy Drew titles on the spines.

Frond Design prints

We have a couple bold new prints at Treadle from Frond Design, a small, Midwest-based design group that's been in business since Fall 2011.

We have a wild, large-scale panel print and a coordinating allover repeat print.  Every other repeat of the panel is a mirror image.

Both of these pieces are from Frond's Alexis' Winter Garden line.

We all know and love the vintage buttons available at Treadle.  Now Becky, our vintage button supplier, has put together these charming button trees.

This would make a perfect gift for the button enthusiast in your life, or even frame it for a unique holiday decoration.

Holiday ribbons

In addition to holiday-themed fabrics, we also have a selection of holiday ribbons.

The brocade and jacquard ribbons would make a colorful trim for a craft project or a little girl's party dress, while those printed with words are perfect for tying gifts.

We've been lucky to have a great selection of Pendleton wools this season at Treadle.  A few days ago, we got a shipment of even more beautiful fabrics from this distinctive manufacturer.

From the bright, striking patterns and plaids of their signature pieces to smooth, dress-weight wool sateen solids, there is a Pendleton wool for every garment.  Come in and see!
