Today we are honored to showcase...
At Pink Chalk you will find everything you need for any sewing project. They offer premium fabrics, ribbon, notions, and of course patterns. Kathy, the owner, has a knack for choosing modern and classic designs for her shop and the customer service is truly amazing!
Do you ever feel nervous about ordering fabric online, wondering if the colors truly match? Pink Chalk also offers a brilliant color matching service. They are available by phone to help you match prints + solid colors together, and to offer any requested advice the project you are working on! It takes all of the guess work out of ordering.
We asked Kathy to tell us how she started this wonderful shop, and here is what she had to say:
In 2006, I began writing about my quilting, sewing and crafting adventures on a blog I named Pink Chalk Studio. I was a stay-at-home mom and was elated to discover the inspiring world of online craft bloggers. With the encouragement of the online community of sewists I'd met through my blog, I published my first sewing pattern in 2007. I launched Pink Chalk Fabrics the following year.
The company is now a full time business with 7 employees operating out of a 2,600 SQF commercial work space on Bainbridge Island, Washington. While the surroundings are a long way from the spare bedroom in which it began, a true love of sewing and sharing the craft continues to drive the mission of Pink Chalk Fabrics.
The shop features quality natural fibers for quilting and sewing with a good selection of knits and Liberty Tana Lawn for apparel sewists.

I'm especially proud of our extensive offering of solids that include Kona Cottons, Free Spirit Designer Solids, Michael Miller Cotton Couture Solids, and Moda Bella Solids. We provide color matching of solids to popular designer collections and also field requests from customers. The results are shared on our blog and Facebook page – one of our most popular series!
We stay connected to our customers through a weekly newsletter, a Saturday feature of a customer sewing project, Facebook posts, and the Pink Chalk Studio Blog which will celebrate 7 years in March.
Pink Chalk Studios also offers free patterns to download directly from the website! Look at his beautiful Infinity Scarf Pattern that is available now.
Here is what Kathy and the Pink Chalk team has in store for 2013:
We're always up to something new around here and 2013 will be no different. Everyone that works at Pink Chalk Fabrics is an idea generator. We often take a single inspiring thought and have it implemented the following week. It keeps things fresh and fun for us and our customers! In the coming months look for a new monthly solids club, new Pink Chalk Studio pattern designs, and our first ever sew along.
