Announcing the First Book from NYC's Mood Fabrics!

Readers, we're going to Mood!

STC Craft is thrilled to be publishing the first book from Mood Designer Fabrics, The Mood Guide to Fashion and Fabrics. Mood is one of the world's pre-eminent fabric emporiums, revered among DIYers and fashion designers for its expert staff and breathtakingly broad range of high-quality fabrics. Mood's flagship NYC store has also become famous as the fabric home of Project Runway (fans of the show will recognize Tim Gunn's catchphrase "Thank you, Mood!").

You can imagine our excitement when first meeting with Mood's team—we even got to pet Swatch, the adorable store mascot! We're honored that they've chosen to publish with STC Craft and we're eager to dig in. Imagine: it is now our job to immerse ourselves in beautiful silks, cottons, wools, and more as we learn everything we can about the fabrics that make fashion happen.

The Mood Guide to Fashion and Fabrics will be the next best thing to visiting the store in person. We're working with Mood's incredible team to combine their vast amount of fabric and fashion know-how with practical sewing tips and a gold-mine of insider design advice. The book will be written by Meg McDonald, popular sewing blogger and Mood's resident fabric-holic and sewing fanatic, and will include a foreword by Tim Gunn.

The Mood Guide to Fashion and Fabrics will hit stores in Spring 2015, and while that date seems a long way off, we know it'll be worth the wait. In the meantime, you can follow Mood and STC Craft on social media for updates and the occasional sneak peek. Excited about our new project? Tell us in the comments section what you'd like to see in the book. We'd love to hear from you.

Though it would rack up the price, a swatch guide section with little samples, characteristics, care instructions, and example uses would be absolutely amazing. I've been through a three year fashion curriculum, and there are still textiles I'm unsure of.

Hand finishing techniques would be great too.
