British based painter Tomma Abts chooses retro, in-between shades that are hard to place, particularly the dusty, vintage pink of SHADOW GREY Linen.

Woven like strips of found fabric into her abstract designs, ribbons of these unusual colors fold over and intersect with one another, creating complex visual puzzles that shift in and out of the light but never give the game away.

These soft pinks bring warmth and humanity into her works, suggesting the peachy glow of a half-lit interior.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

Bath towels

I ordered 3 yards of this fabric and made 4 bath towels. I had never even tried linen bath towels before, but after reading about them, thought I would give them a try. Love them. They don't get as wet as I expected and they dry much faster than terry towels. I am going to spread the word!

Fancy schmancy for towels

It was true to the color on my monitor, a mauve or dusty rose color with mild purple undertones. Easy to sew and embroider with a machine. I also made a mobius or infinity apron and the weight gives a very nice drape.

This is a really beautiful color and I was so excited to receive it. I am making euro pillow shams for my bed. It's pretty slubby And even more so after I washed it and dried it. I do find it a little difficult because the weave is looser and it moves very easily and "stretches". If I could do it over again I would've started with a stabilizer to help with that issue. Other than that it's really nice so far.

a restful color

I will be making Friday Pattern Co. duster with this lovely fabric. The heavy weight of it will be perfect for a spring and fall coat.

The texture is outstanding and our anticipated linen delight... But, IF silk was the name of a color this would be it! I tore into my usps package and could not believe my eyes! I've been a lover of linen for years thanks to FIS and never ever knew anything like this existed in our beloved store! PLEASE PLEASE bring this one back. I will post my finished product soon. I do hope it's in time to enjoy a restocking of this lustrous beauty. If not, I'm so cherishing that I was able to work with this one!

Who doesn't need a good looking, sturdy pencil case? Or maybe two or three, make it four and call it a makeup bag. Intricate detailing and geometry challenge teenagers to elevate their sewing beyond simple straight lines. This is also a great introduction to sewing zippers, and the non-traditional and simple method for inserting it helps ease their fear of zippers. The extra weight of the 4C22 Heavyweight linen gives this pencil case enough structure to stand on its own and hold its boxy shape.

I'm extremely passionate about all things ‘fiber'. I love to utilize natural and second-hand fabrics in my sewing when possible and I also sell second-hand fabric through Instagram (shopwellfibre). I'm SO happy to have a great pair of quality practical shorts to mix in my summer wardrobe! These shorts are are the ‘Spring Shorts' pattern by Peppermint Magazine. I need something non-restrictive and breezy (chasing kids is sweaty work, let me tell ya). As much as I love jean shorts, they aren't the best fit.

I adore this Shadow Grey: optically silky and immensely soft and supple thickness. I apologize for the yellow tint in my photo. The color is truly identical to the color chip. I made the Plinka Pants from a free pattern on Sewtinagivens.com. My next project with this fabric will be the free robe available in our FlS patterns... I am so thankful they brought this stunning gem back in stock! Thank you Maureen and Everyone there!!! I LOVE U:-D
