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: College Inspired Cardigan

Happy Monday All! It has been a while since I wrote a blogpost and it feels great to be back! Today I am excited to share my daughter who hasn’t graced the blog for quite sometime. Now that my children are older, I have to always get their permission to take photos and share. It took a lot of convincing to get my daughter to rock this FAMU (Florida A & M University) inspired cardigan. I originally planned to make the Blackwood cardigan using the orange and green ponte knit for myself to represent my alma mater FAMU but then realized I cut the wrong size.  I was a bit disappointed at first that I cut a medium instead of a large but knew my daughter would rock it. Additionally, even if I wanted to squeeze in the cardigan, it just could not even pass my elbow when I tried it on. It was definitely a learning experience because I now know that you cannot add a non stretch ribbon around a fitted knit garment sleeve. It must be added to a loose sleeve as the ribbon stops the fabric from s

Made By A Fabricista: Velvet for the Holidays

Are you getting ready for the holidays?  I am.  From past years, it gets so busy in my household around this time of year, so it is never too early to start my holiday sewing.  This year I decided to sew velvet, a fabric I had not sewn for many years but I think it is luxurious.   As luck would have it, FM’s poly rich black velvet flashed on my computer screen and I bought lots.  I thought it would be pretty for a one-shoulder gown, which I had never worn before but admired on others.  The following week FM’s multi-colored one showed up.  It was a poly embossed Bohemian print velvet with jade, yellowish, and crimson colors; it screamed fall and family get-togethers.   I just had to have it!  When the fabrics arrived, the deep colors did not disappoint. I chose Butterick B6557 for both dresses, View B for the knee-length printed dress and View C for the maxi dress. It was perfect for velvets; the front was one whole piece and so was the back.  I cut the fabrics with the nap going down

Made By A Fabricista: Learning to pick my battles.

Hi! By the time this is posted on the blog, I may already have a newborn in my arms! This blog post and project have been some of the hardest for me to get done. I wanted to do them way in advance but ended up working on them at 38 weeks pregnant. Talk about pressure! I am usually very organized, but this time I’ve had to learn to pick my battles. So let me share the whole story. First battle: fabric and pattern choice. I first saw this beautiful heathered brushed sweater fabric in one of Julie’s videos on Fabric Mart’s Instagram . They looked so soft and light I thought I probably could use them even in the – almost inexistent – Floridian Fall and Winter. I waited about ten days to order them, knowing full well that they would have discounts at some point! And sure enough, they got into one of the excellent 65% off deals! While waiting for the right time to order the fabric, I looked for the project and pattern I would use these for and found this nursing sweater/dress by Lulu Ferris
