So, I suppose we should start with fabrics. But which kinds? Jones & Vandermeer stocks a thoughtfully edited array of many material types. You can shop by material, choosing from flannel, knits, double gauze, voile, lawn, poplin, linen, and the list goes on! Of course there's also our familiar quilting cottons. They have both new and old offerings from Cotton & Steel, and the delectable new Doe by Carolyn Friedlander.
You'll also find fabrics by Moda, Michael Miller, Cloud 9, Yuwa and many other familiar names. Careful, it's easy to collect quite a cart because the folks at Jones & Vandermeer have a talent for curating special fabrics.
Here are some lovelies I'm lusting over...
|Moda Merry Medley, Mochi by Rashida Coleman-Hale, Michael Miller Glitz, Mochi Canvas, Moda Sweetwater, Playful by Melody Miller|
Have you a hankering for Liberty? Spring is coming and these flowers are the kind that stay perfectly sweet. I found some of my very favorite Liberty prints in stock!
Or perhaps you're more of an Echino fan?
Or have you ever been tempted to try some Nan Iro? I'd like to make a double gauze blanket for Eleni, only I can't choose between these amazing pieces of art. What do you think Sen Ritsu or Water Window or Freedom Garden?
Jones & Vandermeer is not just fabrics, not by far. In fact, if you are a yarn connoisseur, you'll be in heaven. You'll find a collection of luxurious yarns, many hand dyed or hand spun, plus a selection of exclusives yarn offerings from around the world, " discovered by the intrepid explorers of Jones & Vandermeer in the early 21st century."
