Welcome, Pineapple Fabrics!
I'm excited to introduce you today to a new-to-me fabric store. I met Pineapple Fabrics earlier this year at QuiltCon East, where their booth was inviting and fun. Right from the start I could see that they are a smart company. Their goal is to help anyone jump right in to sewing. To that end they offer a wide range of precut fabrics conveniently matched to free patterns, so you can actually celebrate and enjoy a finished project!
Lots of stores offer precuts, but Pineapple Fabrics' precuts are different. For one they are not necessarily from the same collection or even the same manufacturer! Instead an in-house designer creates unique collections for the best possible variety. Pineapple Fabrics' precuts, called Pineapple Packs, are not composed of only the same size cuts either. After all many patterns call for large squares and small squares; fat quarters and strips. Pineapple packs include the cuts you actually need, saving you time and reducing leftover fabrics.
The Alice Pineapple Pack includes 5 "Bonus Quarters" each 21" x 21". I love Wasabi the Cat. Other packs, such as Ellie and Fran, include a variety of cuts like strips and squares. There are six different types of Pineapple Packs to choose from and patterns to coordinate with the cuts! Choose your favorite free pattern for each pack you purchase.
Besides an extensive collection of original precuts, Pineapple Fabrics also offers fabric by the yard, wide-width backing fabric and precuts by popular designers. They carry fabrics by Windham, Michael Miller, FreeSpirit, Rowan, Andover, Dear Stella, Paintbrush Studio, and more. You'll also find Aurifil thread, Creative Grid rulers and various popular notions.
