THE UNIQUE SPOOL has been a fabric and pattern mail order company since 1992, originally based in California before moving to Idaho in 2005. Many years, we were fortunate to participate at various quilt and craft shows mainly in the Western US. You may have visited the booth in Paducah KY and Houston TX. Owned by Roberta Dent, the early focus for the company was unique African fabrics and patterns, including the beautiful designs of handmade mud cloth from Mali. In 1998, we diversified to include fabrics from the Pacific Rim. Since 2002, we have added several new lines of products to our site, including but not limited to:
(A) Hand-painted Sarongs from Indonesia- Pretty, interesting & includes a free instruction sheet for wear.
(B) A Fabulous Line of Buttons – Wooden, bone or coconut shell, these designs will complement almost any wearable art project.
(C) Jewelry & Beads – One of a kind items from Africa & India. Limited quantities are available!
(D) Quilting Needles – We’re now carrying betweens & sharps! Made in England.
(E) Marionette puppet patterns and kits – Fun to make, kids love these easy to walk, 4 string critters.
(G) Fabulous flannels and soft cuddly fabrics – Animal and solids flannels, plush fabrics.
