Leesa Lewis has been a quilter for over 40 years. She has travelled the world, and knows good fabric when she sees it. And she has found some lovely fabric that she is now able to provide for quilters and sewers worldwide.
Leesa’s new business, International Fabric Creations, is based in Australia,but Leesa has spent several months recently sourcing some wonderful fabrics and other products from all over the globe. She can provide fabrics in any quantity, from small pieces for individuals making a quilt, right up to large quantities for those manufacturing clothing or other fine-quality fabric goods.
All are available online at Leesa’s new web site http://www.InternationalFabricCreations.com
One very special product that will excite quilters is what she calls Quilters Dream Fabric No. 3. This is a 58″ wide, 100% cotton fabric that is solid in colour. But what makes it special is that not only is it an excellent quality (at least as good as the best brand-name solids, and much better than the Homespun/Calico type fabrics that are commonly available), but it also comes in a mind-blowing range of colours. In fact, ANY of the Pantone range of colours is available, as they are dyed to order.
There are also two other Quilters Dream Fabrics, which are finer in quality – great for appliqué.
Another special fabric that quilters and embroiders will love is the Organdy. This is great for shadow work, as it gives a lovely soft glow when brighter colours are laid underneath.
Even wider fabric (110″) is also available for backing quilts. This is in plain white, and is very suitable for dying yourself. And the very reasonable price per metre makes it worth considering if you are dying fabrics to sell as part of you own business.
With fabrics ranging in weight from organdy to drill, as well as some beautiful ready-made products like caftans and hand bags, International Fabric Creations is certainly off to a good start. I encourage you to join the mailing list to be kept up-to-date with all the latest products as they become available. http://www.InternationalFabricCreations.com
