Whether you're making jeans, skirts, or jackets, denim is a classic fabric that takes you from season to season with casual, effortless style.

Currently at Treadle we have a great selection of denim, including classic indigo, stretch, embroidered, eyelet, striped, and more. Take advantage of some of the finer wights of denim for making garments with more drape than your classic jeans, or use the stretch woven for figure-hugging curves.

New Heather Ross collection

Briar Rose from Heather Ross is the latest thing at Treadle Yard Goods. This print collection features charming florals, botanicals, bees, frogs, and other small motifs that are simply adorable!

The collection consists of several cotton broadcloth prints as well as several pieces of printed cotton jersey. It's so nice to see knits in sweet, small-scale prints like these - just right for soft t-shirts, dresses, and nightgowns for the little folks.

Everyone loved the kerchiefs and aprons on these bees!

Stop by and check them out - you might find them hard to resist!

Many of you may already be familiar with local pattern designer Kathy McGee of Hemma Design, who is known at Treadle for her fresh, funky bag patterns and great oilcloth classes. Now we have Kathy's first fabric collection, Summerhome, available at Treadle!

Packed with bright color, these big florals, scrolling vines, bright dots, and more make a wonderful group to use together or individually. Kathy has also released a quilt pattern for these fabrics, called the Louisa Garden Quilt, a charming hexagon quilt full of great unexpected details.

We have a lovely selection of eyelet and embroidered fabrics this summer.  From classic white-on-white to rich colors, and black that's anything but basic, you'll find a cool, crisp look that's perfect for summer sewing.

With just enough embellishment, eyelet is never overdone. Try a simple skirt or blouse for easy, casual style.

Pick up a “Find Waldo Local” passport and collect signatures when you find the well-hidden Waldo at any of the participating businesses.  Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons, and more.

New at Treadle Yard Goods: cotton prints from Danish fabric design company Stof.

Many of the prints we have are spare in design, with a monochromatic Scandinavian simplicity.  But there is a touch of whimsy here as well, particularly with the bike and bird prints.

Love the tiny bikes scattered among clouds here!

The apples are sweet and modern at once, and bring in that ever-popular yellow and charcoal combo.

As always, there's more in our store, so come check it out!
