Books are an amazing resource for inspiration and instruction. Compared to individual patterns, books will often offer many more projects and more in depth instruction, including lots of photos and text. Because of this, Fabricana makes it a priority to have the latest titles available from several popular publishers that print books for the sewing industry.
“C&T Publishing has become the industry leader for providing exceptional books and products to the quilting, sewing, needlearts, and fiber art markets throughout the United States and internationally.
C&T Publishing’s staff and authors live their mission statement every day...Innovate. Educate. Create.” – source http://www.ctpub.com/
“Celebrating 40 successful years in business, Martingale is an industry-leading publisher of quilt, knit, crochet, and craft books by top authors. Since our founding in 1976 by Dan and Nancy J. Martin, we've sold more than 21 million books worldwide.” – source http://www.martingale-pub.com/
While this publisher offers titles on many lifestyle topics, Fabricana focuses on their books related to fashion, sewing, drafting, and textiles. Tomoko Nakamichi’s Pattern Magic and draping series have been particularly popular, as well as titles by well-known quilt fabric designers.
