ABOUT US

OUR STORY

Cotton+Steel, a division of RJR Fabrics, was founded in 2013.  Our designers Melody Miller, Rashida Coleman-Hale, Alexia Abegg, Kim Kight and Sarah Watts work together in a uniquely collaborative environment, creating fresh and fun fabrics that mix and match effortlessly across collections. Together they strive to honor the traditions of resourcefulness, innovation and community inherent to the sewing and quilting world.

Since our founding we have designed over a thousand unique fabrics, developed and released a new line of thread with Sulky Threads, and designed two BERNINA sewing machines. Cotton+Steel fabrics, threads, and machines can be found in shops and sewing rooms around the world.
