Because sewing is foxy

sign

I’m super excited to welcome my first ever sponsor, Grey’s Fabrics and Notions! Grey’s was the first fabric store I scoped out when I first moved to Boston and it’s hands down my favorite. You may have seen them featured over at the Coletterie last month.

Five reasons why Grey’s is awesome:

1. The lovely wall of indie patterns that makes me go weak at the knees. No seriously, try leaving with just one. I dare you.

Looking for either of these brand new beauties? Hint: Grey’s already has them in stock!

2. The Crafty Foxes Sewing club! If you’re a Boston local or just in town visiting, stop by Wednesday evenings, 6-8pm. Bring a project, snacks, wine, whatever you like!

3. The fabric. Guys. It’s like walking into a sewing wonderland. Here are some of my favorites:

My problem with most fabric stores around here is that they either only have cheapy generic discount fabrics (I’m lookin’ at you Jo-ann’s) or they only stock cheesy quilting cotton. Sarah stocks the loveliest collection of not only cotton but also knits, wool, voile, chiffon, etc., in all kinds of gorgeous prints and colors.

Also the really cute notions and other sewing accessories.

4. If you can’t make it out to Boston, never fear! Grey’s has an online shop where you can shop to your heart’s content.

5. I’m pretty sure Sarah knows everything about sewing. Every time I go in utterly confused or with any little question, she (or the other lovely people that work there) manage to make my mountain-sized problem into a tiny buzzing fly of an issue. They also offer classes, so if you’ve been wanting to try one of those gorgeous indie patterns but wanted your hand held while you dive in, check out their class calendar!

You can visit the physical shop at 450 Harrison Avenue #63, Boston, MA 02118.

Stay foxy, guys.

  1. I wish there was a store like that near me. The closest fabric stores I have are Joanns and Hancocks. I have nothing against Joanns but I wish there were more fabric and pattern selections. I mostly have to stick to sateen and poplin with the occasional nice cotton print thrown in. Otherwise I have to order my fabric from Fabric.com

  2. What a timely post! I just discovered your blog last week and noticed the post with Katy and Laney and the pics around Boston and so I stalked your blog to figure out if you really WERE based in Boston (sorry!) , so now I have more succinct evidence! I’m also in Boston, which is why I care so much 🙂

    I’ve only been to Grey’s once so far (and bought the Datura pattern – which I know you also love!) but I’ve been meaning to go more often. There aren’t many fabric shops in Boston as you know so I usually buy fabric online. Otherwise I like to peruse Sewfisticated or Winmil for the random really nice find. I’m loving that black/white animal fabric fabric though…
