Terrific Tip Tuesday: Selvage Color


Today I taught a color theory workshop at A Stitch in Time in Franklin, NC. We talked about tons of tips for choosing fabric. Here’s one of my favorites! If you look at the selvage on fabric, you can see the base color. If it’s cream, then that fabric will work well with other cream-based fabrics. If the base color is pure white, it will work well with other pure white fabric. 


Happy fabric shopping!

  1. Well Damn — I never realized that but it makes total sense and looking at the fabrics I have pulled for upcoming projects I totally see that now.
