Great news – the answers to all of your fabric questions are here. I've got TWO new fabric swatch kits for you, and the original is back in stock after repeated sell outs. What is more, they've even added a new wool swatch pack! If you buy fabric online, or aren't sure which fabrics to use for which types of projects, you are going to LOVE these kits. (And you can get them for free too – find out how!)
Do you remember the knit fabric swatch kit? I had been getting a lot of questions from readers about the different types of knit fabrics. Many of us are finding it hard to find nice apparel fabrics locally to us. Many fabric shops have been closing down, and you may find your local store now is more of a quilting store – so to get the best choice in apparel fabrics, you need to shop online.
But you can't feel the fabrics, can't see the drape, smooth the softness, test the stretch online. So how to do you know what to buy? That's where my fabric-friends at Fabric Mart came in – I asked them to make us up a knit fabric swatch kit as a bit of a favor, they said yes and you all went CRAZY for it! It sold out almost right away and as soon as they get it back in stock, it sells out again.
Good news – it back in stock again NOW. Hurry over and get it into your cart before it sells out again!

How to order the kits
Each kit is $4.99 including postage to the USA (sadly due to the cost of postage, these can only be sent to the US.)
If you want to buy a kit, or 2 or 3, add them to your cart and check out at $4.99 each. If you want all four kits, they are available at an even more awesome price of just $15 including postage.

A BIG THANKS to all the team at Fabric Mart for putting these together for us and making them such a great price. Now hurry, before word gets out and they all sell out again!
For UK readers
Sadly these kits can only be sent to the USA. If you are in the UK, there is a great book you can buy as an alternative that includes swatches and information, although it is more expensive.
