At CHA Summer 2013, one thing is clear in the world of fabric and fiber: time-honored and traditional methods of making are making a big comeback. It seems like everywhere I look, it’s back to the basics…but with a twist!
First off, I am absolutely in love with the colorful Janome SewMini sewing machines that I spotted in the Artistic booth. (Pictured above.) I can’t find them on the website yet, but fingers crossed that they’ll be there soon!
I’m also digging these new weaving sticks from Clover USA. So quick and versatile!
From traditional to more modern, The Warm Company’s got quilters and stitchers covered. I can’t wait to try out their Insul Shine reflective insulating lining—it’s retro and mod in the same product!
Tatting is back, my friends! If you like making lace, you’ll definitely want to check out Clover USA’s new Large Tatting Shuttles—they’re even big enough to accommodate beaded strings!
That’s all for now! What fabric and fiber trends are at the top of your must-craft list?
