Stone Mountain & Daughter Fabrics

Confession: I love fabric!  I collect it, stacks of it, vintage and new.  And I want to share a Bay Area secret-- Stone Mountain and Daughter Fabrics.  It has been a Berkeley fixture for decades.  And it is one of the Bay Area's premiere fabric sources for fine fabrics, offering vintage reproductions, Japanese imports, silks, batiks, themes, and more.

Stone Mountain has so much fabric that it is really too much for me to be able to share it all.  So I'll share my can't miss sections.

One of my favorite sections is the immense silk room.  Stone Mountain has just so many types, shades, solids and prints of silk, and the prices are really fantastic.

And there is an extensive collection of Japanese fabrics-- the modern Kawaii, the Sakura, and the traditional.

Fabric is classed in many ways, by color, by subject, by fiber.  Here are some of the Goth prints that I picked up on my last visit.

There is always a huge sale section.

Of course, there is a wall of whites in every shade and weight for that perfect match.  And there are lots of wool felts for the hatter in you.  I am excited to share that Stone Mountain is giving every BlytheCon San Francisco attendee a 20% off coupon in their goodie bag!  They are located just steps from the Downtown Berkeley BART station, so it is a super accessible location.

I will leave you with a picture of these 2 fantastic pieces of silk that I got to make the Chiffon Dress pattern from Momoko’s upcoming BCSF Demo.
