French Terry Knits

We're ready for fall sewing! These new French terry knits have a smooth jersey face and a softly textured, loopy back. Perfect for a sweatshirt or soft layer to help you transition to cooler evenings.

Extra wide widths are an added bonus! They're all 70+ inches wide!

Wild Wander

We love this new collection that's inspired by mossy jungles.

Three are cotton broadcloth, and the dark colorway is a heavier cotton canvas!

Friday Fun Fact

The State Fair is on now and the Creative Activities results are in!! Find all the winners here!

Did you enter something this year, and did you earn a ribbon? Let us know!

Today's Creative Activities building was built in the 1970s, which is glaringly obvious from its architectural style, but the original building was SO MUCH prettier.

It was also, unfortunately, called the "Woman's Building." I think Creative Activities is a much more accurate and inclusive term!

The MN State Fair website gives us a brief history of the buildings here through the years:

The first building on this site was erected in 1904 to serve as the Manufacturer’s Building. After a few years, the name was changed to the Woman’s Building. In 1911, a fine arts annex was built onto the Woman’s Building and formed a link to the Schools Exhibits Building. The Woman’s Building changed its name to Home Activities in 1952 and was razed in 1970. With the new structure in 1971 came a new name of Creative Activities to more accurately reflect its diversity of exhibits and exhibitors.
