What’s everyone sewing these days? We’re super excited to have this new sample in the store of the Charlie Caftan sewn up in a hand-dyed silk noil. Sewn by Bolt’s Marlys with fabric hand dyed by Anna Joyce, author of the book Hand Dyed: A Modern Guide to Dyeing in Brilliant Color for You and Your Home.

We’ll be working on getting more of our collection of PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabrics on the online store soon. This one was done with natural silk noil which we almost always have in stock. Unrelated to dyeing, but everything to do with silk noil, is that we just received a shipment of new colors of silk noil. Not sure which is my favorite color, but my Venomous Yellow is probably my favorite color name!

Silk noil (left to right): cork, nutmeg, venomous yellow, purple sage, blue shadow, periwinkle, gray

And for our special announcement. . . we’re prepping for another online only sale. Mark your calendars for July 19-21 when we’ll be offering 15% off on all knits and sustainable fibers. Time to start planning those T-shirts and leggings! Or, if you haven’t jumped into sewing with knits yet, you can stock up on supplies for our Sewing with Knits primer.

Happy sewing!
