Julie's Picks Swatch Club - 2016 Memberships are Being Accepted!

Attention all fabricholics! This is a must read post!

We're now taking memberships for next year's Julie's Picks! I've done posts about Julie's Picks in the past, but it's always good to remind people about the club, the benefits and how to join. 


Julie's Picks was started many years ago. It was actually known as Sample Cut Club. When I started working at Fabric Mart, they assigned me to take it over and also wanted to re-brand it. Hence the name, Julie's Picks. Sample Cut Club was a members only club that featured fabrics from the sample rooms of New York designers. Not very much has changed over the years as far as fabrics being picked, but it has changed in that there are more benefits than ever before. 

Julie's Picks is a members-only swatch club. I hand pick 30 different fabrics each month. These fabrics are different than things on our website. Sometimes these fabrics coordinate together, sometimes there are a group of the same fabric but different prints offered. I made a video a few months ago explaining Julie's Picks. Not the greatest, but it gets the point across!



We also put together "10 Benefits of Being a Julie's Picks Member". This pretty much sums up all the reasons you should become a member. Check it out HERE.


Our customers give many reasons as to why they like Julie's Picks. Some customers love fabric so much they can't get enough! Some don't like buying fabric online, so this is their way to buy fabric. Some customers join so they can learn more about fabric. If you are a Julie's Picks member, why do you like it? 

We're now offering 2016 memberships! Membership is $50 for a year (January-December). Plus, you will receive a $25 gift certificate good toward any fabric purchase. The certificate will be included with the January mailer. Plus, if you join now, you will receive the rest of the year for free! AND if it doesn't get any better, the first 200 members will get a FREE surprise notion gift! *To receive the free gift, you must purchase the membership with a fabric order. (Due to shipping costs, we will not be sending the free gift separately or holding the free gift until you place a fabric order.) 

What are you waiting for? Join now!

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Sewing is in Full Effect

Hi Guys! Today I’m coming to you with this easy, breeze caftan from Simplicity Patterns because summer sewing is in full effect! While looking through my pattern stash, I came across McCall’s 8413. This pattern is described as McCall’s Sewing Pattern Misses’ Caftan In Two Lengths.  This is an Easy to Sew caftan in two lengths has ruched front with drawstring that ties at the bottom, V-shaped neckline, dolman sleeves and narrow hem. View C caftan has contrast on the left side. OK, let’s get into it because I have a few things to share and say about this pattern. When I first saw this pattern, I purchased it because I loved the ruching in the front. I think that ruching can hide just about any “imperfection” you might think you have. Now, I must mention that this is one of the few caftan patterns I’ve ever purchased because I’m petite and feel like I get lost in all that fabric.  Well, I didn’t even realize this was a caftan pattern until I read the pattern description while writing this

Made By A Fabricista: Embracing the linen wrinkles!

Hello wonderful sewists! Today I have a project that I have been meaning to sew for a while, but you know how it goes. Too many ideas, throw in some analysis paralysis, so many, many gorgeous fabrics to wear, and then, bam! Eons have passed. I’m working on sewing the plans that have been in my head the longest, which brings us to this dashing summer frock.  This is the Style Arc Esther Woven Dress. The style is intended for lighter wovens and the design is ripe for color blocking with the included center front and back seams. You could make right and left sides match; go full checkerboard with opposing rear right and left front; or just use four prints and go wild! I’m sticking with the most basic of blocking and splitting the dress down the center.  Importantly, I got matching threads for each linen color for all the topstitching. Matchy matchy is the name of the game in my book. I added bonus bartacks to keep the side seam pockets forward facing.  Medium Sky Blue and Light Steel Blue

Made by a Fabricista: Sewing a Maxi Dress: More Time, More Space, More Reward

My latest posts often mention time and space restraints. Indeed, sewing is a rather time-consuming activity that requires generous amounts of floor space, counter space, tablespace, and any other surface available. Despite everything, I was so glad to finally embark on a journey to sew myself a maxi dress. I know most readers have a strong sewing background and appreciate the effort required in a project like this. Still, I had fun keeping a mental score of all the steps to get this done, and what they mean outside of a sewist’s bubble. It is easy to underestimate the time and material needed to get a maxi dress like this done! Whenever I see someone wearing one on the street, I think: “That’s so beautiful, I should make one!” So, when this fabulous rayon showed up in Fabric Mart, I knew the moment had come. I chose the Elodie Wrap Dress by Closet Core Patterns because of its flowy and voluminous look and the dolman sleeves that are so comfortable to wear. The fabric itself is wonder
