Our fabrics are of the best quality for smocking and heirloom sewing. These are mostly of 100% cotton unless noted otherwise. They are wonderful to work with. If you put hours of your hard work into a garment please let it be of good quality fabric. Your time is worth the money. You deserve it. These little garments are ones that will be tucked away for the next generation, so be wise in your choice of fabrics.
