Get Set for Christmas

06 October 2016
It may seem a little earlier to be talking about Christmas fabrics however, I know from experience that when making and sewing for the festive season it is best to get a head start; leaving yourself plenty of time. Therefore we have added new Christmas fabrics to our site, some are 100% cotton and others are a mix of 65% Poly, 35% cotton. Christmas can be a dividing subject, when it comes to decorating are you are traditionalist or do you have a more modern taste? We have tried to get a good range of prints in our Christmas fabric range to cater to different tastes and colour schemes, why not take a look and see if there is something to suit you?

Fall in Love... Silk Fabrics.

12 February 2015
Blame it on Valentine's day, but everyone here at Croft Mill is feeling the love. We've got something much more exciting than chocolates and flowers on our mind though; we're thinking about silk fabrics. Pure silks, silk mix fabrics, or even imitation silks...we are loving them all. We thought that you might like them too, so here's a selection.

Croft Mill Loves... Ruth's Historic Smock Top

14 January 2015
Earlier this week the lovely Ruth Bramley emailed in to show us how she had transformed some of our fabric into a smock top for her local miller; who was celebrating the history of his mill. Following the styles of smock tops worn 200 years ago, Ruth spent over 100 hours creating this beautifully embroidered project. Please follow the link to enjoy her photos.

Do you want to see some beautiful new dress and craft fabrics?

18 November 2014
While I was writing this I was confronted by Andrew, and another bloke from where I know not, humping a rickety old table from our original croft mill premises which is known as Marilyn’s packing table. And the reason it has been brought here is that we didn’t have a packing table the right height; well at least not the right height for an average size person. Perhaps I will be asked to assist in the reassembly at some time in the not too distant future.

Any road up... we are here to talk about cloth and as is my want I shall start at the beginning and no doubt people will put them in a different order by the time you come to read it.

The Catalogue Has Been Sent

The season of garden parties and barbeques is in full swing and we’re hoping for continual blue skies, though based in Lancashire this may be slightly in vain.

Cotton lawn fabrics for the hot weather. It is getting hot in here, which is saying something as the walls here are 3 foot thick and our offices are north facing. We are not complaining, we love it, well that is all of us apart from Carmen as she is humping the bulk of the cloth around, all day long. These beautiful lawns and a few hot cups of tea may aid the discomfort. Is it true that hot drinks cool you down? It is certainly true that a lovely cotton lawn will, have a look at our latest designs…….

This is made from our Mustique chiffon fabric which we have in 2 colours but just in case you don’t like it we have other fabrics that will do the job, they are new and if you don’t like using chiffon then you may prefer a crepe de chine or lightweight satin.

Fed up of the rain? The wrong clothing? Keep dry with waterproof fabrics

20 March 2013
Will it never end? Are we just in the wrong clothing? Here in Lancashire it is sodden underfoot which is frustrating with little ones especially toddlers who have a habit of falling over. We have some waterproof fabrics which are easy to sew, perfect for making up into dungarees and if that sounds a bit too much for the novice sewer, try making them into a pair of trousers with an elasticated waist, some of these fabrics can manage without being hemmed if you really wanted express sewing. Hey presto, the kids keep dry, clothes protected and most importantly - no tears!

A Rare and Beautiful Thing - Highland Tweed

01 March 2013
Well to us anyway and certainly at this price. Highland tweed in an array of muted autumnal colours, mainly browns, greens and black with an additional white whisp to the finish. It has a beautiful hand and is a jacket/skirt weight rather than suiting. We have around 40mtrs of it. It’s fabulous.

Fancy a Good Read? Our Free Fabric Catalogue is Out Now.

30 January 2013
That is if you enjoy reading about fabrics, it is not your average catalogue and has been known to provide some light entertainment. We don’t have lots of extra catalogues as they are done by request only but it is a free catalogue and it can be a nice alternative to the goggling at a screen. The Croft Mill catalogue, “The Good the Bad and the Ugly”, is not so aptly named this time as it really should have been the “Good the Great and the Beautiful” as we have some fabulous fabrics in. It will be arriving on your doorstep over the weekend, if it doesn't blame Royal Mail but I am sure they won't let us down.

New Wider Width Cotton Poplin Designs

15 January 2013
Do you remember Holly Hobbie? Some of the designs in our new cotton poplin range just remind me of things I had when I was a child. This range of wider cotton poplins are all printed onto a lovely quality cotton poplin which will make up into beautiful garments or craft products, perfect for children’s wear, shirts, dresses and also soft enough for bedding although I realise you are limited to single use with the width. The designs are bright and cheerful with lots of colours. They are a one off, I hope you like them.

Superb waterproof and water repellent fabrics just in

19 November 2012
Here is a little selection of so called waterproof fabrics, apparently we are not able to call anything waterproof any more, since once you sew it you might alter the structure of the thing if the coating becomes impaired. Notwithstanding all else these are as near to waterproof as you will get and do repel water.

New denim fabrics in brown, black or blue

19 November 2012
The full blown proper cotton denim is almost as getting rarer these days in that most of it is made in China and most of it gets made into garments in China so we have to look for alternatives and latterly we have found this little batch. There is not a lot of any of it but they are all 60” wide.

Need a project after the Olympics? Summer Suiting Fabrics just in.

13 August 2012
Need a project after the Olympics? No more handball to watch at noon? We have a nice selection of Irish woven suiting fabrics. I say summer because they are mainly pale colours and lightweight. I know we haven’t really had a summer but surely its coming? These are beautiful fabrics that won’t date so I suppose it doesn’t really matter when you buy them because next summer just has to be better than this - doesn’t it?

It may not be the weather for cotton lawn but it’s bound to get better and plus, who cares? I am wearing completely inappropriate clothes as I refuse to be dictated to by this jet stream.

Forsooth_Pure New Wool_I

Vintage Pure New British Wool Tweed Cloth

20 June 2012
As I speak to you, the temperature outside is 7.5 degrees and here inside this particular part of the mill, it is less than that. So I thought to myself why not. We’ve got a little collection of tweeds, fine tweeds, woven on very old looms by Midsummer Weavers in the 1980's. Maybe that is not classed as vintage but they are old. I’d like to think that they were hand looms but I don’t think they are. The cloth is only 1 m (39”) wide, in fact it’s not quite that wide. It has a little bit of a rough hand to it, not a lot, but it is not a silky cloth, in the way that a modern worsted wool cloth is. They are genuine tweeds woven with different coloured yarns.

What isn't good enough for M&S is good for us - Cotton Jersey Fabric

12 June 2012
60” (152 cm) wide cotton jersey in a striking red rose pattern. Originally intended for Marks and Spencer but sadly the rose was not quite the right red which means happily for us we have a super fabric and the rose is still a lovely red. The rose sits on a horizontal variegated stripe in black and cream. The foliage for the roses is in brown and beige and whilst it is an all over pattern, it is rather sprawling. If you can handle stripes this will look stunning.

Vintage fabric_Daisy_blue floral_cu

Vintage Dress Fabrics

16 January 2012
I think these fabrics are a bit of a find. They are 100% spun rayon (viscose), they are only 91 cm (or a yard) wide which means pretty much they have been woven on narrower looms, since they don’t make them any more, there is a chance that these cloths are reasonably old, hence the vintage bit.

New Fabric Collection

Much has been said in recent times about Gordon Brown and his suitability to lead the country. What on earth does that mean? He follows what people tell him he ought to be leading and as a result, because they in turn don’t know what to do because they haven’t got a leader to follow, they then turn to the Humphrey Appleby’s of this world who knowing that the others don’t know get away with murder. That is why your bin will be emptied when a civil servant says, not when you know it ought to be because it’s full…………. Anyway back to business, our new fabric collection is ready and the catalogue is on its way or Download it now!
