Anna Graham of Noodlehead just released a new minimalist wallet sewing pattern in her shop, and she used some Arroyo fabrics for her sample projects! This is totally inspiring — I love seeing how you use Arroyo in your creative projects….
I’m excited to debut three new styles of cloth dinner napkins in the shop this month! I’ve been getting requests for larger dinner napkins ever since I added our cocktail napkins to the shop, so this addition has been in the works for quite a while.
Made with our standard linen/cotton blend fabric, these napkins add a pop of pattern to the table, and make everyday entertaining more festive.
At 18″ square, these napkins are a generous size, without being too formal for casual dinners with family and friends.
I love the way my modern patterns pair with textured dinnerware, but they look just as lovely with simple solid dishes as well.
Just like the cocktail napkins, these larger napkins are still great for snacks and casual meals at home. Because they’re made with linen, they get softer and more absorbent with use. Find all the new styles of cloth napkins in the shop!

I was delighted to go on CBS-8 in San Diego yesterday morning to tell our city about Makers Arcade, the holiday sale that I’m participating in on Saturday! It was a great opportunity to remind our community to shop local, and to introduce myself to a wider audience in the city I’ve called home for almost a full year.
If you live in the San Diego area, stop by Makers Arcade this Saturday and say hello!
This Saturday, December 9th, visit Cotton & Flax at Makers Arcade, and support San Diego’s creative community while you finish your holiday shopping! You’ll find 100 California-based artisans sharing their handmade work, and enjoy local brews and delicious treats while you shop.
This is my first time exhibiting at this indie show, and I’m looking forward to connecting with the local creative scene in my new city. If you’re in San Diego, stop by and say hello!

Known for their iconic “The Future is Female” shirts and merch, Otherwild also carries a selection of jewelry, ceramics, perfume, home decor and original artworks. They are dedicated to showcasing goods made with care by individuals, and I am so pleased to have them stocking Cotton & Flax tabletop goods and pillows.

After sharing my favorite fabric retailers last year, I thought it would be helpful to highlight the best online fabric stores, including a few that will be carrying my new collection, Arroyo! Knowing where to buy fabric online opens the doors to so many DIY projects – everything from reupholstering a chair, to sewing your own throw pillows. You may even be thinking about sewing some holiday gifts!
I love to browse through an independent fabric shop – nothing beats the feeling of running your hands over bolts of fabric. If you can shop for fabric in person, it’s a great way to check the color, weight, and drape, and to discover new fabric designers you’ve never seen before.
Unfortunately, many indie fabric stores have closed over the past few years, so many of us don’t have a local fabric shop in our area anymore. If this is the case for you, I’m happy to share my tips and sources to buy fabric online, so you can find beautiful fabrics from anywhere. If you’re not sure where to buy fabric online, I’ve got a list of 17 of my favorite online fabric stores below….
