Welcome, The Confident Stitch!
Well, those of you near Missoula, Montana are in luck because The Confident Stitch is both a brick and mortar store AND an online destination. They carry quite a selection of fabrics, notions, books and patterns. And that's not just quilting cottons! They have tons of other substrates like canvas for making that tote, Japanese gauze for a dreamy scarf, silk for a fine blouse and so many, many knits of all kinds!
Plus, since it's a full-service store, you can add the hardware and interfacings you need for your bags and apparel to your cart while you're at it. They even carry batting, rulers and rotary cutters.
The Confident Stitch is a gathering spot for anyone who delights in the fine details of handcrafted garments and unique, modern quilting cottons. Darn, I wish they were located in my town!
Here are some snapshots of their quilting cotton selection. They have pages of Alison Glass:
A nice variety from Carolyn Friedlander:
Pretty prints by Cotton & Steel, plus their knits, rayons and such:
Plenty of Anna Maria Horner, especially her Loominous wovens:
And many of my favorite Art Gallery prints:
Do you like to sew clothing? Pop over to The Confident Stitch blog to find pages and pages of detailed pattern reviews. When store employees sew items, they log information about sizing, pattern alterations, fabrics used and more. What a great resource! The latest entry discusses Bonnie's experience sewing this Ruffle Hem Top in organic soy knit.
Thank you, Kate, for bringing The Confident Stitch to readers of Stitched in Color. I'm excited to partner with you! Likely I'll be visiting your shop again soon to get inspired about some spring apparel sewing for my big and little girls!
p.s. They're stretching their Valentine's Day sale through Saturday! 25% off all quilting cottons!!!
