where fabric and fiber comingle...

Here at Alewives Fabrics, the first day of October brought to our door some VERY brisk weather and also a VERY large delivery of Quince&Co yarns. Perfect timing, if ever there was such a thing!

Some of you may remember when Alewives Fabrics carried Amy Butler's organic line of yarns, but unfortunately, that line was discontinued and it has been quite some time since we've had yarn on our shelves, and we couldn't be more excited.

Quince&Co., for those of you who aren't familiar, is a Maine company. The wool is sourced and spun in the US, the patterns are terrific, the colors are beautiful, and the hand is incomparable. In short, it's a dream to work with and Alewives Fabrics is so very proud to be a Quince&Co. flagship store.

And of course we are still receiving the most amazing fabrics on practically a daily basis. Today's designers are at the top of their game and although I say it all the time and I may sound like a broken record, it's such an exciting time to be in the fabric industry. The designs and substrates are constantly amazing me.

Now that we are carrying such a lovely line of yarns in tandem with these amazing fabrics, it leaves me with a constant struggle on my mind: to knit, or to sew?

And that, my friends, is a WONDERFUL problem to have.

Enjoy the fall season wherever you are. If you visited us this past summer: Thank You! And if you plan to visit us in the future (whether in person or via our webstore), we hope you find yourself struggling between fabulous fabric and fiber choices, too!
