At Shannon Fabrics, giving back and supporting our community is one of the hallmarks of our business. Our company’s motto, “Making the World A Softer Place™”, conveys more than the irresistible soft feel of the fabrics we sell — it’s a mindset that even the smallest act of kindness can make a huge difference in somebody’s life, and the holiday season is the perfect time for extra altruism and giving back.
This year, we’ve created a separate nonprofit under the “Making the World A Softer Place™” name, upholding our commitment to lending a helping hand and making a positive impact on those around us.
Terry cloth is one of the most widely-used fabrics around — it can be found in everything from bath towels and spa products, to baby burp cloths and baby bibs. And since it’s available in a wide range of colors and weights, sewists and quilters have wholeheartedly adopted this often-underappreciated fabric.
Even the fashion industry has taken note, with some major labels integrating terry cloth into modern, chic designs.
But let’s say you’d like to try sewing with terry cloth yourself. As with any fabric, there are a terry cloth sewing tips to keep in mind to make the most of this durable-yet-soft fabric. Don’t worry – while we may be known for our minky plush fabrics, here at Shannon Fabrics we specialize in terry cloth, too.
Hello! Emilee here and I’m back with a fun and easy way to show off beautiful machine embroidery and Luxe Cuddle®. I love sewing and quilting when I’m not on the road as a fabric rep or a Shannon Brand Ambassador. It’s been a while since my last post (I think the Starry Cuddle® Flag Quilt was my last post!), but when I found out I had the opportunity to work Anita Goodesign I got right to work!
