Fight fast fashion this Earth Day!

Save the Date!

Saturday, May 7 is the day to bid Roberta a fond farewell at our All-Day Retirement Soiree!

Stop by any time during our regular hours of 10 to 5 to chat with Roberta and the Treadlettes, share a story, see our Sewing Retrospective, and enjoy some yummy treats!

We are all going to miss Roberta SO MUCH when she retires so let's send her off in style!

New Knits in Springy Colors!

Solid jersey and French terry in bright, bold colors for spring!

There are so many simple projects for knits. Tops, tees, dresses, and leggings for everyone you sew for.

Shop knits here!

Cute Crocodiles

We love these cute little guys! 

The bold blue print features happy crocs playing among the flowers and birds, while the tonal green coordinating print has tiny little crocs scattered with marsh plants.

Friday Fun Fact!

It's Earth Day!

There are so many ways to discuss the impact of textiles on the environment.

Fast fashion is a huge problem globally, and microplastics from synthetics are contaminating our water supplies.

What can we do?

Sewing your own clothing is one way to opt out of the fast fashion cycle. Did you know many garments are only worn seven times before being discarded? By putting time and care into a well-made garment, then using it for years, we can maximize the lifespan of our textile resources.

Choosing natural fibers also helps! But if you opt for a synthetic, choose wisely. The majority of synthetic fabrics Treadle carries are designer deadstock - remnants that would otherwise have ended up in landfills. Giving them a new life is a great form of re-use!
