Why "Emma One Sock"? Emma One Sock was founded in 1994 as a boutique line of children's clothing that was sold all over the US. The name of the company came from Linda's two children (Emma, and Aaron--AKA "One Sock" when he was a baby). When Linda decided to 'retire' the clothing business in the beginning of 2001, she began to sell off some of the beautiful European fabrics that she had acquired over the years. It became apparent that there was a market for the types of fabrics to which she had access, and soon she found herself in the fabric-selling business! She kept the name, and EmmaOneSock.com has been going strong ever since.
Over 20+ years, Linda has developed great relationships with wonderful suppliers, and as the market changes, she’s always seeking out new ones. Many of the fabrics are purchased "post production", meaning that they are curated from fabrics that are remaining after designers and mills complete their samples for a season, or complete a production run. Some fabrics are one-time-only treasures, others may be reordered. Typically you won't find these fabrics in your local fabric store, but you may spot them on the runway or in ready-to-wear. Many customers watch the website closely, as the selections at EmmaOneSock.com tend to reflect the latest trends and new listings appear (and disappear!) often.
Linda was extraordinarily lucky to have had the chance to collaborate with sewing writer and teacher Shannon Gifford, who wrote many sewing guides and articles for the website until her passing in April, 2010...a great loss to the sewing community. But her wonderful body of work remains on the EOS website for your use. . And until 2020, Linda was again extremely fortunate to collaborate with the multi-talented Kathryn Brenne, sewing expert, teacher and writer, who has written a series of online sewing articles for EOS that are not to be missed. Kathryn has now retired, but we are thrilled to have her body of work available to anyone, free of charge. Her protégé, Malia Janveaux, has also written several tutorials, and we invite you to check them out as well.
