So- checked fabrics?
We know you like them!
In fact- we know people LOVE them!
Last week was all about checks…
We have checks in four sizes. The smallest checked fabric is a 3/8″. This is a true gingham fabric. And we have it in over twenty colors. This also comes in a Buffalo Check- in the same colors, which makes it great for co-ordinating things.
The next size up is a Buffalo check with a difference.
What sets this apart is the thin line of color that borders the stripes, setting off the pattern. This is a 2 3/4″ check, a nice size for most applications. This comes in seven colors.
The last group of checks we carry is a large 4″ check. This comes in eighteen colors, some of them are rather unusual.
This year several colors of the smaller checks, and the smaller of Buffalo checks, were discontinued… this is always upsetting when it happens. The first to go was the Olive Buffalo Check and the smaller green and brown check in the same color.
This is actually a green and brown plaid, but it is part of this group.
We have some of it in each size, but when it is gone, it is gone.
The next to go was the plain green check.
Living in Maine, this surprised us…
After all, this is basically what I call Canoe Green-
a classic for cabins everywhere!
We don’t have any of the Buffalo check left,
but we do have the smaller check in the green.
Then the dark brown check was discontinued-
we still have some of each size.
And, the same thing happened with the rose pink gingham check.
This is a dusty pink check.
We still have some stock of it in the 3/8″ check.
And, recently we learned that the light baby blue check had been phased out.
I could not believe it!
Neither could anyone else!
We do have a small amount of the powder blue check left.
So, if you are looking for a checked fabric,
see if any of what is available might work for you!
