Our favorite part of Vintage Meegan is sourcing and finding beautiful old fabrics. The question we always get asked is where do you find your material? We travel to flea markets, antique shows, and auctions to find material. Also - estate sales and yard sales are good sources. Unfortunately not everyone sees what we see in old curtains and tablecloths and sadly so many get thrown away. Our favorite fabric is Barkcloth - it's amazing how well it holds up after all this time. The colors and patterns are wonderful. It's becoming harder and harder to find. But we keep looking.
I'm the Meegan behind the Vintage Meegan. My sewing skills are mostly self taught, but inherited from my grandmother and honed through lots and lots of practice. My favorite part of what I do is joining together just the right fabric, with the right style, with perfect buttons or a brooch. The details and textures of my vintage materials make each of my products one of a kind.
The best way to appreciate vintage fabric and handsewn items is to see them in person.... stop by and check them out.
