New Knits

Soft, stretchy knits are always in season! Here are a few of our new faves. 

The multicolor stripe at right has a looser, softer structure that's perfect for drapey tops and wraps.

The two jersey knits below are great all-purpose knits for t-shirts, tanks, dresses, skirts, and more!

Friday Fun Fact!

Have you ever been at Treadle and had our help matching threads? Here's our trick!

Pull a strand of thread out of the spool and lay it across the fabric. You are looking for it to disappear.

The color in the spool is not always a perfect indicator! Pulling the strand gives a much better idea of the thread's actual color.

With a printed or multi-color fabric, generally you'll want to match the background or the most dominant color.

When in doubt, go a shade darker. A darker thread will sink into the shadows and disappear, while a light one will pop and stand out.

Can't find your color? Often a grey, beige, or olive will blend in perfectly well.

In each of these examples at right, we would recommend the center thread. See how it disappears? That's the goal!
