At each Sewtopia, every attendee is greeted at registration with a smile and a handmade lanyard featuring beautiful fabric from one of our sponsors, Windham Fabrics. A family run business since 1955, Baum Textile Mills, Inc. is a producer of the finest quality fabrics for the home sewing industry. In 1995, after recognizing a need for more quality quilting and crafting fabrics, Baum Fabrics began to add cotton sheeting to its collections and saw the popularity of these lines grow rapidly. In response to this growing market, Baum decided to focus its efforts on the needs of the independent quilt shops and introduced a new division, Windham Fabrics. Working extensively with quilt historians, industry experts, in-house design studio, and well-known designers from all around the world, Windham Fabrics has become a leader in the marketplace. Known for its authentic reproductions of antique fabrics, Windham also offers florals, textures, retro, and many other contemporary fabric collections sourced from home textiles, scrap booking, and the fashion industry that are created exclusively for quilt shops only.
