Under the Sea Fabrics
I vowed not to shop anywhere on Black Friday. I hate it, I think it’s stupid, I dislike the fact that some stores open on Thanksgiving to start their Black Friday sales early.
Honestly, all it is is a bunch of people standing in lines, pushing and shoving each other, for junk they don’t need. I can think of a million other things I would rather be doing on Black Friday then Black Friday. Of course, some of these things include a beach, a margarita, and stitching but hey that’s my fantasy.
Until, Under the Sea fabrics mentioned on Facebook that they will be having Black Friday Sales. I took a vow and I will stick to it even if it really sucks right now. But, the rest of you can participate.
Under the Sea Fabrics is owned and operated by Leslie Fetty LaFluer who is completely obsessed with mermaids. She hand dyes or hand paints the fabrics herself. She also does custom orders.
She has a variety of fabrics to choose from including linen and Aida with an opalescent option on some fabrics. The fabric pictured above is Frozen Margarita opalescent that I bought a year or two ago via Embroidery Central.
And, considering the fact fact that her fabrics are hand dyed or hand painted, they are fairly priced. Happy stitching!
Under the Sea Fabrics
Under the Sea Fabrics provides hand dyed fabrics to stitchers around the world by owner Leslie LaFleur. Pictured above, is Frozen Margherita Opalescent fabric. However, there is a catch to these absolutely stunning fabrics. There are only two places to buy fabrics from Under the Sea.
Lafleur for the last couple of years has only sold her fabrics through her social media group on Facebook – Under the Sea Fabrics. Jennifer, an Embroidery Central stitcher, found her and started buying LaFleur fabrics. The employees at Embroidery Central fell in love with the fabric and now carry select pieces from Under the Sea Fabrics in the store.
I say select pieces because Under the Sea Fabrics is currently a one woman operation that is being ran out of LaFleur’s home. She can’t offer what the bigger distributers do quite yet but I am sure she is on her way. What she does offer is awesome fabric in every shade and count from linen to Aida. Plus, she will also do custom orders if you ask very nicely. She also has Opalescent hand dyed fabric for those of you who want a little bit of extra sparkle.
She is constantly posting images of her latest creations but some of the creations are offered for a short time only. Happy Stitching!
