“It looks like a rather blustery day” said Winnie the Poo!
Cold outside? Not to worry, the OSF Shop has lots of cozy fleece, warm woollies, hoodie knits and polar fleece to keep Jack Frost away from your nose and toes. Our next Sale is this Sunday, October 22nd at Our Social Fabric— here’s what we have in store for you:
Last Minute Halloween Costumes
Only a few days left to “whip up” that Halloween costume, lots of black stretch knit, perfect for witch dresses and Dracula capes. Stretch knit is great for costumes—you don’t need to serge the edges, just cut, stitch a few seams and go! The Halloween section with weird and wonderful bits and pieces is located at the front of the shop.
We have a healthy selection of wool and wool blends, coat weights – plenty of new arrivals since our last sale; you’ll will find them in our “Naturals” section together with an assortment of cottons, linens, rayons and flannels.
Merino Wool Knits
We found another bolt of that beautiful royal blue Merino Wool Knit in our locker! Yes, we have a locker full of fabric bolts—one day we’ll have a locker sale—won’t that be amazing! Merino wool is a high quality, super fine wool which is strong and smooth against the skin and super comfortable to wear—it regulates body temperature, keeping you warm in cold weather and cool in hot—a simply amazing textile. A few bundles of the merino wool in russet and apricot colours are also available.
Black Technical Fleece
This is the perfect fabric to keep you toasty while watching the kids play soccer and hockey. It is pre-cut in 3m pieces but also available by the bolt for $80. Pair it up with our green plaid quilted cotton for a cozy fall jacket—see our reversible coat on display with packages of the green plaid and technical fleece.
Yarn, trim and ribbon
In our notions section, you will find baskets of braided trim, cording, piping, fringe, gimp and ribbon—all at rock-bottom prices. Don’t forget to stock up on zippers, 10 for $1!!!
