Wool Knit Jacket

We have all been drooling over this wool knit jacket top Mary has made. When these luscious wool knit prints arrived a couple months ago, everyone agreed they were fabulous, but most of us weren't quite sure what do to with them. How to maximize their loveliness in an attractive, practical garment?

Mary used McCall's 6996 to make this quick, simple open cardigan. Perfect for throwing on as an effortless layer when you need a little more warmth.

It's definitely still winter in Minnesota, and there's still plenty of time to sew great winter pieces that will carry you into spring. Stop by Treadle and check out the wool selection - we have plenty of wools still in stock, and many of them have been reduced by up to 30%.

A Little Sparkle

This knit top demonstrates not only a perfect pairing of two fabrics, but also a great way to add a little sparkle without going overboard.

Made from a luscious cashmere knit paired with a just-shiny-enough sequined fabric, this top is the best of both worlds.

This top was made by Material Girl Kristin using Very Easy Vogue 8877. The Material Girls are always sewing something new and exciting! You can catch their latest at several Treadle classes, or at Fashion Sewing Club, every second Tuesday and Saturday at Treadle Yard Goods.

New Organic Fabrics

We have several lovely new fabrics in our organic section. First up, this wonderful organic cotton crepe scattered with birds. Cotton crepe has a wonderful drape, resists wrinkles, and is easier to sew than its silk or rayon counterparts.

This fabric blends linen with organic cotton in a subtle stripe pattern.

There are a bunch of new knits, like these jerseys made from a blend of organic cotton and soy fiber.

And there are even fabrics with recycled elements! This jersey print is made from organic cotton blended with recycled polyester.

Feel good about the fibers you buy, and try some organic fabrics!

Acorn Trail Dress

Knits are a great choice when for sewing clothes for kids. They sew up quickly, perfect for growing little bodies, and the comfort of knits is great for kids who are picky about what they wear.

Plus when the knits are this cute, how can you go wrong? This little dress is made from McCall's 6915 using the Acorn Trail organic cotton knit from Treadle.

Make something sweet and comfy for the kids in your life! We have everything you need to get you sewing.
