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: Comfort Dressing with Style

As 2021 draws to a close,  I don’t think it comes as a surprise that comfort dressing is here to stay, at least for a while. Now the definition of comfort dressing is different for all of us, and for me it means knits. However, I don’t always want to be in yoga pants and tees. That’s why I chose to sew a knit skirt and top using Vogue 1820. This two-piece ensemble gives me the comfort of yoga pants but in a more stylish way. The beauty of this design is that you can mix-and-match prints and/or solids, creating a one-of-a-kind look. Fabric Mart Fabrics has a multitude of knits to choose from at any given time which made it easy to choose coordinating fabrics. I knew I wanted to use prints in a monochromatic color scheme.  To find the five fabrics needed, I started by browsing the knit section on Fabric Mart’s website.  I knew I wanted black as my base color. As I found fabrics I thought would coordinate, I put them in my shopping cart.  That way I could look at the shopping cart and eas

Made By A Fabricista: Ready For A Cruise

Happy new year! This year my husband and I are looking forward to a late spring river cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  Since I started last year sewing my outfits for the various excursions on land, the only garment pieces left to sew were those I will wear on the ship. I wanted these to be interchangeable, so I picked gray as my base color.  I wanted very comfortable garments for ease of movement around the ship. Luckily Fabric Mart was running a huge knit sale and pattern sales were going on in many stores and online. For lounge wear, the heathered medium gray polyester/lycra double brushed knit (SKU: DLD3889d) was perfect for a jacket and a pair of pants. I used McCall’s M7294 pattern for the loose-fitting unlined jacket and Butterick B6137 for the semi-fitting pants with elasticized waistband, pockets, and leg bands. For me, attaching the leg bands gave a better finish than hemming.  For the top, the golden yellow/off-white polyester/rayon/lycra tie-dye French ter

Made By A Fabricista: A Year of Reflection

I can’t believe we have made it to the end of another year.  Since this post is coming out right around the holidays, I wanted to create something with a bit more glam. I found this velvet sequin knit and I will say it is even more gorgeous in person.  For my look I decided to make the Mimi G x Simplicity S9370 but I decided to turn it into a gown! To do this I measured from my waist to floor to add the additional length that I needed and added additional to the back to make it have a small train.  I spread the hem of the skirt to create more of a trumpet style silhouette which made the perfect gown. This fabric was actually very easy to work with, since it is a velvet, it does have nap, so I had to make sure that I cut in the correct direction.  I also noted that I should have pre-washed this fabric before using because the fabric dye did rub off a lot as I was working on it. Once I tried my dress on to check the fit I was in love! It was so comfortable and fit perfectly.  The waist
