We’re so excited that Rae Hoekstra (aka Made by Rae) has designed Cloud9‘s new collection of organic interlock knits! Sidewalk is an ode to the sunny afternoon walk home from school, when the weather is warm and the air smells of freshly cut grass.
This collection is perfect for dresses, t-shirts, tops, baby clothes and more! It is a lightweight 139cm wide 100% cotton interlock that is such a pleasure to sew with. We can’t wait to see what you make! Find it in the shop here and see more Sidewalk sewing inspiration here.
Anna Maria Horner has added some stunning new designs to her collection of yarn-dyed woven fabrics, Loominous! This special collection explores beauty in form and colour by employing several different methods of weaving with richly dyed cotton threads to achieve some joyously traditional and some entirely inventive designs. They are a beautiful choice for garment sewing and a special addition to any quilt project! Find Loominous 2 in the shop here.
We have some gorgeous new wool fabrics from British design house Lady McElroy! These range from 100% wool to wool blend fabrics, including one wool/cashmere coating! There are some really lovely choices for your next big coat project (like the Christine Haynes Ellsworth, the Closet Case Patterns Clare or the Colette Anise) but they’ll also work well for winter skirts and dresses. Find all of our wool fabrics in the shop here.
We are mad for the colours and patterns of these two new cotton/spandex jersey knits from Idle Wild! Perfect for tops and dresses, these are nice and stretchy and have great recovery. And, those birds! Find them in the shop here.
The Artisan Splash cotton lawn by Lady McElroy (the bottom one in the picture) is one of our most popular lawns! We know you love it, so we got it back in stock and added a new colourway, the muted, more sophisticated Brush Strokes. You can find them in the shop here.
In this exciting class you’ll learn all the skills you need to begin sewing your own clothes! Over the six week course, we’ll make three wardrobe staples – a top, a skirt and a shift dress – in your choice of style using a pattern of your choice. We’ll cover fabric selection, working with a commercial pattern, cutting your fabric, fitting, construction and finishing techniques. This class is designed for competent sewers who are ready to dive into garment sewing. And, it will be taking place in our new West Hampstead Square shop studio, which will be bigger, brighter and better than ever! Find out more and book a place here.
