In 2019, Marcus Fabrics joined the
Timeless Treasures family of fine quality textiles for quilting, sewing and
crafts! As Marcus, we'll remain your source for beautiful reproduction and
historical designer collections and contemporary looks.
Marcus produces fabrics for quilting and

In an environment
where every theme, pattern, texture and color becomes a creative statement,
enthusiasts choose Marcus fabrics as the centerpiece of their crafts, quilts,
wearable art, apparel and home decor. Our state-of-the-art in-house studio

the Old Sturbridge Village and others. Through them we not only bring
beautiful, historically inspired fabrics to the discerning quilter, but we also

it isn't only the Marcus product
line that set us apart. You might be
surprised to know that although most of our customers and quilt shop owners are
women, the quilting & textile arena is actually a male-dominated industry.
However, at Marcus, we take particular pride in the fact that women are the
driving force in every area, from design and merchandising to sales &
marketing. Our staff includes four quilters, five sewers, and three managers
with extensive backgrounds in textiles and/or home economics, another industry
that our unique understanding of the
quilting customer is reflected
in the product. Our first-hand knowledge of the process of quilting and the joy
of working with quality materials gives us an invaluable connection with the
quilters who use our fabrics in their creations," says Stephanie Dell 'Olio, a lifelong sewing and fabric enthusiast.
In 2015 we launched the Studio 37
Fabrics division, with

consumer, who sews for individuality and self-expression. Studio 37 collections
strike the perfect balance of a coordinated look, and the freedom to mix and
match fabrics as a quilter chooses to, bringing out her or his own unique style
in the process. The prints are designed with versatility in mind, making them
perfect for a variety of end uses.

benefits of our 100+ year history is the ready access to so many beautiful
designs. Occasionally, thru Marchives, we'll take a look back at some of
these designs, with an eye toward re-creating them for today's quilting
enthusiasts. We invite you to join us in celebrating our past in this
