Dear Stella's Sophisticated Fabrics For Modern Women
She's a girl about town, with a glamour and confidence that's all of her own making. She knows what she likes and she knows what she wants - Stella's very much a modern girl, a 21st Century woman!
That's the genesis of the Dear Stella Inc. range, which showcases unique and colorful fabrics with a sophisticated sense of style.
Gilt Trip (Metallic)
The New York company's collection evokes an edgy freshness, combining the best of old traditions with modern influences. The design house - which is based on Broadway in Manhattan - hopes its beautiful fabrics will inspire both a traditional quilter and a contemporary “sewist” to reinvent their sewing style.
The idea for the character of "Stella" is a woman with an independent spirit who is creative, adventurous and hopelessly romantic, according to the company's website, DearStellaDesigns.com.
"She loves beautiful paper and a perfectly wrapped gift, and always sends hand-written 'thank you' notes. Cookbooks sit pretty on her shelves for more than just cooking, and she always makes her dinner - even if it’s just for one.
"You may find her spending lazy days savoring coffee while pouring over her favorite magazines and blogs, dreaming about the ultimate craft room. She has a strong work ethic, and feels so much pride in making things herself ..."
Dear Stella designs are printed on high-quality, 100 percent cotton and cotton/canvas fabrics, and some prints are available with a laminated finish.
Most designs are printed on a narrow width, 44/45 inch - with the exception of cotton canvas and laminated cottons, which are printed on wider width goods of 55/56 to 57/58 inches.

The Big Apple company's collections include Portico, Kallianthi, Play Date, Stella Linen Cottons, It's A Shore Thing, Town & Country, Bukhara, Maasai Mara, Gilt Trip (Metallic), Play Date Flannel and Petal Pusher.
