Letterman’s Jacket with Pendleton Fabric!

We have a long history of providing wool to the makers of lettermen’s jackets, but this is the first one we’ve seen that uses our incredible jacquard-woven patterned wool.

Alysia designed this jacket for her son, Phillip, who lettered in football (4 years) and basketball (1 year) at White Swan High School in Washington state. Phillip’s family is so proud of his accomplishments, and this jacket was a great way to show it.

Alysia patterned and cut the jacket in our Rio Rancho fabric and full grain leather. She had it sewn by a professional shop that has the proper machinery to sew with leather.

Thanks to Alysia for sharing this great jacket, and congratulations to Phillip. Here’s to his bright future!

Hi – as a local Oregon sewing and knitwear designer, I wanted to share my latest sewing pattern, the Sierra Trapeze Coat – made from fabrics I purchased at the Pendleton Woolen Mill Store!  You can find this pattern in Lookbook No. 8 of By Hand Serial, a series of books all about fiber and fabric makers.

By Hand Serial is a tri-annual travelogue written by makers, for makers. Written and produced by Andrea Hungerford, this book series focuses on local crafting communities that are helping incubate, encourage, and support folk who are exploring a wide variety of craft related businesses and artistic pursuits.

Says Andrea, “Our readership, while still growing, is enthusiastic about every issue. Unlike other modern craft publications, our focus is not just on what is being made, but on the hands that are actively creating it.”

Andrea found during her own travels for family and work that often where one maker flourished, many were also succeeding in their region, and wanted to provide an opportunity to highlight these exciting areas and introduce them to others who might not be able to discover them in person.

By Hand Serial is in its third year and each issue is full of personal interviews, thoughtfully written profiles, enticing photography and a variety of projects for knitting, sewing, baking, and more. See more here: By Hand Serial
