Dolly Clackett Sponsor Spotlight: Harts Fabric


When I was compiling my list of potential Sew Dolly Clackett sponsors, Harts Fabric was one of the first to pop into my mind.  I have had the pleasure of working with Amy and her team during the Peony project of Sew Colette 2.0.  They were unfailingly generous then as they are now.

One lucky Sew Dolly Clackett winner will receive a $75 gift certificate from Harts Fabric!

Harts Fabric is both an online and bricks-and-mortar store, located in Santa Cruz, California.  Their website is a mecca for sewing enthusiasts and offers a staggering array of supplies.  In the spirit of Sew Dolly Clackett, I am going to highlight their amazing selection of quilting cottons.

The website is very user friendly and a snap to find what you're looking for.  You can search by new arrivals, sale cottons, by designer, or by category.  As Roisin's favourite is well known for her many cowgirl dresses, why don't we check out the Hunks and Pin Up Girls section?  If you've ever wanted to make a Clackett-style dress, this is the section for you!  Harts Fabric has always impressed me with their diverse selection of prints and this section does not disappoint! From firemen, to cowgirls, to mermaids, your dream pin up fabric is here!  You can even make your own Blanche Dress!

One of my favourite Sew Dolly Clackett entries is this amazing Atomic Dress by Camille Mamie.  She used Butterick 5748 and Michael Miller's Atomic Burst cotton to their best advantage.  Camille, I hope you don't mind if I sew copycat you!

There truly is a plethora of fantastic fabric available!  I can personally attest to Harts Fabric's superior service and quality.   Don't forget to check out their blog for tons of creative ideas and DIY. 

A reminder that there are 11 days left in the Sew Dolly Clackett contest!
Good luck and happy sewing!

I am coming across so many coincidence in m blog reading today! Here I see that great Atomic print dress, which I used to make an ironing board cover today! The dress looks fab!

Ohmigosh; that Hawaiian pin-up fabric is AWESOME!

I love the Atomic dress! What a great choice for an ironing board cover :)

Sarah said...

It is! Have you seen Roisin's version?

Mamie Camille said...

I don't mind at all, au contraire! And since Roisin twitted back that she had once made the same pattern in the same fabric for a friend, it turns out that this dress is actually an unintentional copycat already ;)

I do adore your dress! Thank you again for allowing me to 'steal' your photo!
