Vintage Fabric Lovers Club
Love the vintage fabric too,

I am a textile designer who collects constantly ,
if you are also looking for great new fabrics on the cheap for projects,
there is fashionfabricsclub.com they have silk and all sorts of goodies.
I don't work for them, they just have nice stuff.
Whats everyone collect ?
I used to collect barkcloth, but now I like metallic brocades found
in 60s dresses.
Anyways, nice to find fellow collectors,

I'm new to the group and new to sewing. I've purchased some vintage fabrics recently and am very interested in purchasing more.
i guess i'm just here to share my finds and view the finds of others as well as obtaining knowledge and partaking in anything else that goes on in this community.
i've noticed that no one has posted in a few months. Hope it picks up! I think this community will be a great place as long as there are regular entries!
does anyone know where i can look online for a vintage duvet cover?
Hi everyone! *waves*
Could you folks tell me what kind of vintage design this looks like:
It's very retro. What does the design remind you of? (I'm not very skilled when it comes to naming vintage styles)
Thanks in advance! ♥
I lucked into a HUGE box of patterns from the 1950s-1980s on Freecycle the other day. I'm posting some of the "pretty" ones here. I have a bunch to give away FREE (if you pay for postage) from the 1960s and 1970s--see my journal for the photos. I hope you like 'em!( Read more...Collapse )
I should have known about this; there's really no excuse. Flickr has a vintage fabric group where you can post pics of vintage fabrics. Someone mentioned it at another forum I belong to and I see a few familiar names on the group list. So, if you didn't know about it either, check it out at:http://www.flickr.com/groups/vintagefabric/
I know this (LJ) group has been pretty quiet lately (it's summer, we all have better things to do), but I'll try to post some pictures of flea market finds soon. Hope others will do the same.
I bought this fabric at the market day in Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland, a few weeks ago. I thought it was curtains, but it turns out to be two two-metre lengths of fabric which has been hemmed on all sides. It is by Liberty of London, the department store which popularised the Arts and Crafts style at the turn of the century. As you can see, the pattern is "Clementina". I think it's probably from the seventies, but a reprint of an Arts and Crafts/Art Nouveau pattern.
I paid 5 euro, it would cost me about 100 euro to buy from a dealer. Hooray for bargains!
I bought the lovely wool crewel fabric above a while ago at an estate sale with grand (delusional) dreams of using it for Renaissance garb this season. Later, I remembered that my sewing skills were...shall we say “profoundly lacking”...so I decided it was best to post it off to eBay. If you’re a more confident seamstress than I, please take a peek at the auction
. It is truly yummy stuff...
