Yesterday was a huge day for Closet Core Patterns. If you missed the news on Instagram or through our newsletter, let’s catch you up! After eight wonderful years serving the sewing community with our line of patterns and online courses, we are ready to stretch our wings and expand into a new industry! I couldn’t be more excited to tell you about the upcoming launch of our new sister brand, Core Fabrics.
The concept came to me fully formed one night when I couldn’t fall asleep. While I had my hands full running CCP, I couldn’t shake this stubborn idea, a vision of a perfectly curated one-stop-sewing-shop, with every fabric as sustainably and ethically sourced as possible. I wanted to create a fun, inspiring place where you could get everything you needed to sew your dream wardrobe, and do it with the knowledge that you had made good choices for our planet. A place where we could continue to celebrate the craft of sewing, and connect our community with unique textile producers creating fabrics that were sustainable and beautiful in equal measure.
Almost a year later, our new online shop is almost ready to share with you. With the help of my incredible business partner Tereska (we’ve been best friends since we were 15!), we’ve moved to a new studio, developed a beautiful website, and started building a team to help get our carefully curated fabrics into your hands. While Core Fabrics and Closet Core Patterns will exist as separate businesses with their own identities and websites, we are super excited for the synchronicity between our two brands.
For one, we will start releasing CCP patterns as seasonal capsule collections (at least after our new pattern coming the same day the fabric stroe launches!) What it means for you is the ability to shop a perfectly curated collection of textiles chosen specifically for our patterns, in addition to our broader collection of garment fabrics, making it easier than ever to get everything you need for sewing gorgeous clothes in one easy place. We’ll share more about how everything will work in the weeks to come, but rest assured CCP isn’t going anywhere – we’ll continue to bring you the chic, high quality patterns you’ve come to expect from us, in addition to gorgeous fabrics and supplies from Core Fabrics.
As for Core Fabrics, we officially launch in two weeks on Tuesday, August 17th! If you’d like to see what we’ve been working on, please sign up for our new mailing list here. You’ll get first dibs on fabric, and we’ll send you an exclusive launch discount code to use in our shop when we open. You’ll also want to follow our Instagram adventures through our new account @corefabrics as we share fun behind-the-scenes while we prepare for launch.
Whoo hoo! Let the new sewing adventure begin!
