New Online: Art Gallery Knits
T-shirts, tanks, dresses, stretch pants, underpants—we’ve got you covered. We just added our most recent selection of Art Gallery Knits to the online store. Whether you’re looking for strawberries or stripes—or something in between—know that Art Gallery knits have a super soft hand and great stretch recovery. A jersey with 95% cotton and 5% spandex, these are going to be great for all your daily wears and will withstand multiple washes (perfect for my 10-year old who often mistakes her dress as a napkin!).
Speaking of knit fabrics, have you heard about the KNICKER-BEE?1?! In short, it’s a sewing social we’re hosting monthly. This month the focus is on underpants! We have lots of fabric options for all your stretchy skivvies. A few of our faves are the bamboo/organic cotton jersey and the soy/organic cotton jersey. We carry these as staple items both in store and online. Both are a super soft, lightweight jersey with excellent stretch and recovery. Plus, they come in lovely solid colors.
And, if you’re not sure about sewing with knits, we encourage you to try it out. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a serger to do so. Sarah has a blog post here to offer some tips. Or, you can take one of our Sewing with Knits classes to have a more in depth look at sewing with stretch!
