Searchable Fabric Catalog Notice
Our backend search catalog is not in service at the moment and it will be
some time before we are able to replace it with a new method. We have created HTML files
for you to use broken up by either category or vendor. It's not a easy
as the searchable database but it will give you a way to order until we have a more permanent solution. You can always e-mail us or call us if you can't find what you are after.

PRICE UPDATES: When we
process your order the price may be higher than
noted in the on-line catalog.
Prices continue to rise every time
we order fabric, sometimes by quite a bit. We
reserve the right to charge the new price. If that
is not acceptable do please contact us to confirm
a specific price and availability before ordering.
In most cases our fabric is on the
shelves as yardage and we sell it in some cut
sizes that we have found work well both for
stitcher's and for us. The fabric catalog has the
name of the cut (e.g. Stitcher's Quarter) and for
that particular fabric what the cut will be (e.g.
18x27). A "Regular" cut means it runs selvage to
selvage. So a Regular Half is 18" by the width.
When we apply the term "Stitcher's" it means the
cut is twice the length of a regular cut and 1/2
the width. So a Stitcher's Quarter is 18" by half
the width of the fabric. In most cases a
Stitcher's cut proves to be more suitable for
stitching projects but not always. There are a few
fabrics already pre-cut by the vendor or
pre-finished to a certain size (e.g. a
If when you order, you are unsure of
how much you need make an educated guess and there
is a text field for the each fabric where you can
give us your stitch count. We can figure out the
best cut and let you know what that is if it's not
what you selected.
You can also use Yarn Tree's Fabric Calculator to help estimate the size you'll need.
A word about hand-dyed
With all hand-dyed linens the colors will vary
slightly from dye lot to dye lot. If you are doing
more than one piece from the same color be sure to
order enough at one time to get the same dye lot and
make a note of that in the Special Instructions.
Also be aware that the color it looks like in a
photo for a given design may bear little relation to
the actual color. Some colors photograph very
differently than they look like in "real life" and
dye lots differ as well. Hand-dyed fabrics all
shrink some amount due to the amount of time they
spend in water. So what starts out as say, 28 count,
might end up more like 29 count and with some linens
the ground fabric threads plump up more. If you've
not stitched with a hand-dyed fabric we suggest
purchasing a small amount and trying it to see if
it's to your stitching tastes.

This Plus and Weeks Dye Works should
be able to get wet, either to iron them or to clean
them a bit. Fabric
Flair Effects (sparkles, stripes, prints,
etc.) can be dampened to get wrinkles out, but
washing is not recommended. With any hand-dyed or
special effects fabric you should test a sample
first before either steam ironing or washing.
Machine washing is NEVER
recommended for most fabrics. It is simply too
abrasive. Fabrics such as Afghan or table linens
which can be laundered should be done with care.
Check with the manufacturer or dyer's website to
find out more about cleaning instructions.
Hand-dyeing the fabrics causes them to shrink
slightly. Some vendors take this into account before
they dye it so we get a full yard when we order.
With others a yard comes as 34-35" or so. If it is
critical that your piece be a certain size please
note that in the special instructions so that if we
cannot accommodate this, we can suggest a different
