Do you sew with linen? I admit that some of my favorite summer clothes here in the heat of the Cayman Islands are linen. I have some beautiful long loose pants, and a couple of skirts. My husband really loves a light linen shirt for the evenings. But I've never sewn with it – crazy right! So when Fabrics-Store.com got in touch about their offer of $1 a yard for premium linen, wow, I was interested to learn more.
And I did learn so much more. In my ignorance I thought that linen was, well, just linen. But of course not, any more than all cotton is quilting cotton. There are so many different types, weights and qualities of linens that I had no idea about, so I am really glad to have my eyes opened by such a specialist site. Each type of linen is listed with so much information such as the thread size, thread count, weight etc.
I have never seen so many beautiful shades all in one place. It really is a dream to look at and I'll certainly be adding linen to my stash and hopefully making some new skirts this year. But from the look of the customer projects, the various linens on offer are suitable for a wide range of projects including some lovely home decor ideas too.

While you are shopping, do take a look at their latest linen in stock – I know they are really proud of this product and say its sure to be a best-seller. The 1C64 range of softened linen is just fabulous! These colors would fit beautifully with my tropical wardrobe.
Fabrics Store love their new linen! It's the ultimate linen for high quality, everyday sewing. The perfect combination of length, weight, and material. The 1C64 linen incorporates the best characteristics of a fine linen, while still maintaining an all-purpose middleweight. This means you can use this linen to make a wide range of designer grade products. In short, this is a softer and stronger version of their most famous IL019 linen.
The 1C64 is also an even-weave linen. This means that all of the linen staples are equally aligned and when washed, the weave will shrink evenly. Remember, there’s no risk and you can return your fabric for any reason within 30 days of purchase for a full refund of fabric price.
