Spring Into A New Attitude!


We find ourselves - in the middle of spring - looking forward to summer and appreciating all the changes happening in our Stonemountain community.  We've been feeling the transition on many different levels - from a fresh new look for our website and blog, to new members in the Stonemountain & Daughter staff and a  growing number of customers from near and far. We are ever-inspired by our three muses - The Quilter, Crafter & Garment Maker - bringing together all of our wonderfully creative customers to inspire and encourage each other. During this grand shift, we couldn't be more grateful to be celebrating 33 years of business with you!
Thank you for shopping with us!

Always Creatively Yours,

Suzan Steinberg,


What changes have you been noticing in your life this spring? Take a look around your home, office or studio. Is it time to finally clean out that wardrobe, storage closet or UFO (Unfinished Objects) box? There has never been a better time than now!  
 As warmer weather comes our way, we begin to shed our winter coats and transition to lighter fabrics and lighter outlooks, too. Knits are always a great option for layering in the Spring or to wear alone for a breezy summer outfit. Although many of us own knit pieces, knit sewing projects often intimidate even experienced sewists. Luckily, Stonemountain & Daughter has all the tools you need to dive into your first knit project! Take a Sewing With Knits class with Terry McClintock or pick up the brand new and very popular Moneta and Mabel patterns from Colette, along with their new book, The Colette Guide to Sewing with Knits. Come explore our extensive collection of knits, available in cotton, rayon, linen, silk, wool and blends. Shop our cotton knits, rayon knits and poly knits on our website!


Be sure to visit Suzan's blog - . This week, Suzan reflects on her personal stash busting and wardrobe planning with her seamstress, Laurel. You'll be sure to find inspiration for your next sewing endeavor and summer wardrobe planning!

   WHAT'S UP!    

If you've visited our website recently, you've probably noticed some big changes in the look and feel of it, but don't worry, we're still the same Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics you love. We're working to make it easier for you to order any fabric, notion or pattern that you need right from our website. We love to see you in person, but we understand that it's not always easy to make the trip to our Berkeley storefront. You've probably visited our Facebook page before, but did you know that we're now on Instagram, Flickr and Blogger? We love to share pictures of our creative customers, new fabric arrivals, and more to inspire you to keep on creating!
Our new schedule of classes for June - December will be out at the end of May!

Another great way to bring in the NEW is to take a class - Are you a devoted Quilter, but have always been interested in Garment Sewing? Maybe you're new to sewing and you're finally ready to commit to your first intermediate project? Or maybe your son or daughter would be a good fit for our Summer Camps? Reinvent yourself by taking one of our classes!

You can check out our class calendar on our website or stop by the store. And feel free to call us at (510) 845-6106 or email us at with any questions!
