Printable Fabric Sheets


In the Hamels Fabrics storefront, our staff is asked about specialty, novelty fabrics every day. We hear customers request fabric with green tractors, elephants, children’s TV characters, sports teams, etc. Many quilters increasingly want very specific fabrics but have difficulty in finding what they want and/or the design that’s not the right size or colour.

When Pauline, the shop owner, can secure stock on novelty fabric from our suppliers, she certainly does. Currently we have those Fairies, Marvel Superheroes and cats etc. printed on bolts of fabric in the store and displayed on the website.

However, most “licensed” images that are under copyright (eg. Disney, NHL) are difficult to find on the bolt. Often times licensed fabric is printed on a low quality grainy, fabric that is not going to perform very well in a quilted masterpiece.

Ok, so here’s the issue. We all want find quilting fabrics with a “specific” theme and these fabrics are not easy find as you browse the marketplace. Thus the search becomes frustrating and fruitless. No one wants to disappoint anyone wanting to have a quilt made with their favourite novelties.

Thrifty Thursday….Rural Yesterday Book


Rural Yesterday Book

Today’s *Thrifty Thursday item is “Rural Yesterday” quilt book by Toni Phillips & Juanita Simonich.

Featuring the Prairie Song Quilt and other projects.  Rural Yesterday is a deeply personal and nostalgic response to a lifestyle that is now a memory.  The designs came out of a need to recognize and pay respect to sagging barns, weathered grain elevators, rapidly disappearing one-room school houses, to rusting cream cans, abandoned wood stoves, the soft light of kerosene lamps and the hum of treadle sewing machines.  If these fabrics bring you a bit of that joy and nostalgia, they will have done their job.

Our regular price is $18.98  Our Thrifty Thursday price is only $2.00. Click Rural Yesterday to order yours today!
