• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Would anyone (@luxire ?) be able to tell me which VBC tropical wool fabric is the closest match to the mid-grey Minnis Fresco offering (0511 in Fresco II and 510248 in Fresco III)?

Thanks!

This was one of first pants we made. The fabric was hugely popular. Once it got sold out, we were never able to find anything similar - the weight, the feel, the weave.

It had a quirky name: Grey Cotton Khaki - Chino. It is finally back.

I would say it is this. Can still check the 2 swatches together and confirm tomorrow.

Any updates on mottled cavalry twill from vbc?
We are told it is available. Still waiting to hear on the delivery timelines. Communication is slow.

Dress jackets are not a part of the sale.

We are planning on launching some jackets for summer casual wear, checks, linen-silk blends etc., which will be light and machine made. We may be offering some such jackets on sale.

If planning to order dress suits, start communication now. We should be able to offer a good deal on them.

@luxire :

Most of those new wool fabrics say "Machine Wash Cold, Tumble Dry"; can you please confirm that this is not a misprint?

Some of them will need review. Fabric makers say "Dry clean only" for almost every wool fabric. In our tests, most survive a machine wash in light cycle.
