100% Organic Cotton Twill Fabric Giveaway 1 - Crooked Brook

I am very excited to announce that I will be giving away a box of assorted Certified 100% Organic Cotton Twill Fabric  courtesy of Crooked Brook. These are nice size pieces of fabric with endless possibilities!

Crooked Brook is a label used by the atelier division of an art studio that offers full service apparel design, pattern making, sample making, private label small lot production and embroidery. As a result of this, they generate a wide variety of clean, small pieces of fabric that are perfect for sewers, quilters or crafters, that I have partnered with them to offer giveaways!

For this Fabric Giveaway, I am offering a box of small pieces of 100% certified organic cotton twill scraps.

What is Twill Fabric?
Twill is a type of textile weave with a pattern of diagonal parallel ribs this is achieved
when two sets of yarns cross each other, usually at right angles, generally accomplished with a loom. With fewer interlacing in twill fabrics this allows for the yarns to move more freely, and thus they are softer and more pliable allowing the fabric to drape nicely. Twills recover from wrinkles better than plain-weave fabrics do because of the number of interlacing. Twill fabrics have a front and a back side, unlike plain weave, where both sides are the same. The front side of the twill is called the face and the back is called the back. The face side of a twill weave fabric is the side with the most apparent pattern. The face side is typically more durable, more attractive, and most often used side of the fabric. There are various types of twill fabrics including chino, drill, denim, gabardine, tweed and serge all of which are suitable for many applications.
