Maybe you’ve always wanted to join a fabric club but wasn’t sure how it works. Or maybe you’ve never heard of a fabric club and want to check it out. Here’s a handy guide to help you decide if joining a club is right for you, and if it is–which one!
What is a fabric club?
A fabric club is just like a magazine subscription– you sign up, pay money, and recieve fabric regularly. For us, that means once a month you’ll get a bundle in the mail, along with an email (new for 2018!) with details about your fabric and project ideas.
“My stash is too big already– the last thing I need is fabric delivered to my door every month!”
Believe us– we know how a big stash can be stressful! The great part of a fabric club is having a predictable amount of fabric coming in each month. Most of our club bundles have enough coordinating fabric to make a quilt top, meaning you’re going to be making and finishing projects. Some clubs are solids, such as Kona Complete and Color Inspirations, which are always needed! Others, such as Liberty Lawn, are heirloom quality and highly collectible (and I promise, you won’t mind giving up a little shelf real estate for Liberty!)
How much does it cost?
Because everyone has a different budget and fabric needs, most clubs come in different size options, such as fat eighths, fat quarters, half yards, and even full yards. Clubs are typically billed monthly, though you can also pay all upfront if it better suits your needs.
Which club is best for me?
If you want to join a monthly fabric club but aren’t sure which one is best for you, think about what kind of projects you want to make and which brands/styles of fabric you stash the most. Here’s a handy guide to the fabric clubs we have!
Liberty Lawn Club
Starting or growing a stash of Liberty Tana Lawn can be a little overwhelming due to the large amount of gorgeous prints the company has, and getting just a small piece of it can be frustrating. Liberty Lawn Club is great for growing a collection of Liberty prints in a size you can use, such as fat quarter, fat eighth or fat sixteenth, while giving you a variety of 10 prints each month.
If you love Cotton+Steel prints, Cotton+Steel Club gives you 12 prints each month in the size of your choice, in a coordinated color palette. The club can contain prints from all 5 designers, plus Rifle Paper Co., basics, and Cotton+Steel Friends. This club is excellent for giving you a bundle you can make a quilt top or other projects from, as it contains a few different colors in blenders and feature prints.
Kona Complete Club
If you dream of owning every single Kona color (unlimited solid fabric power!) Kona Complete Club is for you. You’ll get 340 colors in the size of your choice, bundled and divided over 12 months. Kona solids are smooth, soft and Oeko-Tex certified, meaning it’s processed with no harmful chemicals. Each month, you’ll also get an email with a free pattern using solids and a list of all the colors you’ve recieved so far.
Art Gallery Club
If you want to recieve a complete collection of new fabric (including a few coordinating blenders) check out Art Gallery Club! Each month you’ll get a new collection of Art Gallery fabric, occassionally two if they’re small Fusion or Capsules lines. This club is perfect for making complete projects each months!
Stash Stack Club
Do you never have the right color blender print for your project? Do you want a more well-rounded stash of different colors? Stash Stack Club can help! Each month you’ll get 12 blender prints in a single color, so by the end of 12 months you’ll have a color wheel’s worth of shades.
Color Inspirations Club
If you’re looking for a solids club that’s a little smaller than Kona Complete, you may be interested in Color Inspirations Club. You’ll get 10 fat quarters or half yards (your choice) of coordinated Cotton Supreme Solids, perfect for using together or mixing with other projects.
|Quilt Now Magazine
Quilt Now is a magazine for the modern quilter, written by modern quilters. This magazine comes to us from the UK, with projects from both US and British designers using the same fresh modern fabrics you can find in our store.
Monthly Club Box
If you join more than one club, you can combine them into one monhly club box and save money on shipping. On the 30th of each month, your box of all your subscriptions will be shipped and ready to be opened and used by you in just a few days.
