Fresh Start | Spring Fabrics 2018

Spring has sprung!

Spring arrived a couple days early at Style Maker Fabrics and we are so excited to kick off a new season! This time of year is all about new beginnings and a fresh start! After the long, dark days of winter we are all ready for brighter colors, warm sun and long days outside. Time to shed those the warm, snuggly layers for light flowy tops, colorful pants and feminine florals.

Prep for our spring collection started just after the first of the year, but it wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago that it really started coming together. After sourcing fabrics from all over it is so exciting to see the pieces matching, coordinating and pairing well together. Today we are excited to finally share the collection with all of you and give the site a fresh look for the new season!

Time for Fabric

In the process of sourcing fabrics for the spring collection, a gorgeous palette of corals, aquas and purples immediately started to develop. Not quite pastel, but not overpoweringly bright either, we like to call describe these colors as our favorite sorbet or ice cream hues.

Spring Hues | Style Maker FabricsYou have probably heard that Pantone’s color of the year is Ultra Violet and this season, the purple influence is everywhere! From springy hues of orchid and lavender to richer shades of plum and eggplant, we are loving the range of this crowd favorite color. Watch for knits, shirtings and bottom weights in a variety of shades in the shop this season.

In terms of prints this spring, we are excited to that florals continue to be wardrobe staples. Typically found on drapey rayon challis or crepe, we are excited to offer a selection of other floral printed substrates including linen shirtings, stretch sateens and stable knits. It is always good too have more variety and versatility!

Speaking of variety! This season is the the season for pants! We are so excited to offer our largest selection of bottom weights to date—stretch sateen, cotton twill and denim (both stretch and non-stretch) all in a variety of finishes, colors and a few prints for good measure. Pair these with some of the great indie pants patterns available now and your are set!

Launching Style Maker Fabrics

I am so excited to announce the launch of a new venture, Style Maker Fabrics.

This year has been quite the roller coaster for me both personally and professionally. Just after the first of the year my life got turned upside down and since then I have been working on finding a new path filled with creativity and passion. These changes forced me to take a leap of faith and turn some of my dreams into reality. And with that… Style Maker Fabrics was born.


First, here is a bit more about me…
I have been sewing, crafting and being all-around creative my whole life. I have worked in and around the fabric industry most of my life and even design quilting fabrics and patterns, in partnership with my mom, under the name Firetrail Designs. I love fashion and trying to adapt the latest trends into my own style. As a third generation seamstress, I often push the boundaries of my skills and tackle new projects I may not be ready for, but I say, “Why not?” While I have mostly been sewing quilts, handbag and things for around the house, this has gradually been shifting towards sewing more and more clothing or garments.

As I have become interested in designing and creating my own garments, I have had a hard time finding the high-quality, on-trend fabrics that I was looking for. With limited selection in my area, I began searching online only to be overwhelmed and still not finding what I was looking for.

This year I set out to create a unique, online fabric retailer that specializes in on-trend fashion fabrics at affordable prices. With the help of my mother and the support of family and friends, I created Style Maker Fabrics to fill that unique void in the online fabric marketplace.

So, What is Style Maker Fabrics?
After studying the fashion trends and shopping the garment districts in New York and Los Angeles we put together an amazing selection of unique, high-quality garment fabrics for Style Maker Fabrics that we know you will love. Our goal is to provide our customers with the fabrics, supplies and inspiration so that they can become their own Style Makers.

Each season, customers will find a wide variety of fabric types selected based on the current trends and the classic styles that will always be in fashion. We pride ourselves in selecting only the highest quality fabrics and consider how each one will ideally be used, how easy it is to work with, as well as its overall performance.

At Style Maker Fabrics you will not only be able to shop by latest trend, but also by fabric type and garment type. That way you can find just the right fabric whether you know exactly what you are looking for or are just in the mood to sew or create and need some inspiration.
