Time Capsule Fabrics serves both the sewist who wants a period accurate look for everyday or living history and the sewist looking to incorporate the Deco era’s timeless appeal into a modern wardrobe.  Our beautiful fabrics include hard to find dress weight rayns and frozen-in-time retro prints, sourced from countries around the world including the US, France and Italy.  We also seek to support the many small businesses that serve the vintage sewing community by partnering with vintage bloggers and carrying independent pattern makers.” – Time Capsule Fabrics website
