Our team includes sewists with years (even decades!) of experience with a variety of textile projects—from contemporary clothing and quilts to visible mending, dyeing, historical costuming, embroidery, and more! When you call or email the shop with a question—What fabric is best for this pattern? How should I prewash the fabric for this project?—you’re tapping into the knowledge of not only the person on the line, but an entire network of textile experts!
A shared love of fabric and sewing connects our staff with our community of sewists. We are thrilled to help you find the perfect fabric for your garment pattern, build a cohesive palette for your quilt, or figure out how to make your weird Halloween costume idea come to life! It’s a total delight to hear back from you after you’ve completed your projects, to see photos of what you made, and to hear what you’ll be working on next!
The Stonemountain Spotlight has been an amazing way to share our favorite fabrics and our talented team’s creativity with our sewing friends in the Bay Area and beyond! For each Spotlight we choose a specific pattern, fabric, or sewing technique, and invite the shop staff to each make their own version. The Spotlight is a fantastic opportunity to see our amazing fabrics made into garments and worn by real people!
One of our favorite Stonemountain Spotlights this year featured our collection of beautiful Lady McElroy fabrics. Since the Lady McElroy collection includes striking solids and bold, unique prints on a variety of base cloths, it gave our team lots of material to work with (pun intended!). It was so much fun to see what everyone made, to share their work on our blog, and to see how it has inspired other sewists!
Feeling inspired by our Stonemountain Spotlight creations? Here are just a few of our favorite Lady McElroy fabrics for fall!
