Should I Join a Fabric Club?

Posted by Katie Remski on Jan 16, 2018 11:36:08 AM
  

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 at Pink Castle Fabrics

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. 

Cotton+Steel Club

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 at Pink Castle Fabrics

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 at Pink Castle Fabrics

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.

Here's what we've got for you this month:  
 

1. Ripples in Pond - Bari J
2. Stitch Square in Charcoal - Michael Miller Fabrics
3. Pointelle in Shade - Art Gallery

There is a tiny bit of bad news though: A delay in the distribution chain means we're going to be a couple days late shipping this month's stash. We're very sorry and do not expect this to be a long delay.

Yellow

 
April is here!

We endured the winter, made it through April Fool's Day, and the last couple days have been sunny and beautiful here in Michigan. I'm crossing my fingers, but I'm sure at some point those April showers will find us. I'm tired of gray skies!

Which is why April's Stash Stack color is yellow. Like a little bit of sunshine, or a nice glass of lemonade.


(by the way, I don't know about all of you, but I've started my lemonade indulgence early this year. I guess I just couldn't wait for the summer to get here and the grills to be fired up.)


Wishing you all a happy April and lots of sunshine in your lives!
