Organic Goodness

Hey Peeps!  Fat Quarterly is talking to Jan DiCintio of Daisy Janie.  Today she wrote about organic cotton (what does it mean, what does it do for the planet, etc.) and tomorrow she will be back for a little Q&A.  Today's post is very informative and very well-written - I expect tomorrow will be equally fantastic. (I mean, Fat Quarterly + Jan DiCintio?  How can you go wrong?)

Jan is my hero.  I love her.  I want to marry her.  The production and packaging of her fabrics go beyond GOTS Certification and they're produced in a Fair Trade Certified facility.  Amazing!  It's sometimes tough to find organics and they're more expensive, but I REALLY think it's worth it!  Please, please, please check it out!

  1. Yay for organic/fair trade fabric!

    You commented on my blog about the backing fabric for my string quilt - it's Michelle D'Amore Habitat Dandelions (taupe/white). I'm totally obsessed with it, I want to buy about a hundred yards of it in all the different colors. Here's where I got it:

    Fabricworm also has a few of the colors!
