Baum textile mills, the mother company of Windham fabrics, has been a family run business since 1955. As a producer of the finest quality fabrics for the home sewing industry, Baum has built their reputation for producing some of the finest fleeces and flannels on the market.
In the mid 1990s, after recognizing a need for more quality quilting and crafting fabrics, Baum decided to add quilting cottons to its collections and watched as they became immensely popular! 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!
Quilt made from fabrics from Kelly Ventura’s Flora collection.
Working extensively with quilt historians, industry experts, an in-house design studio, and well-known designers, including Harts Fabric favorites Lotta Jansdotter and Heather Ross, Windham Fabrics has become a staple in the quality fabrics marketplace. Known for its authentic reproductions of antique fabrics, Windham also offers florals, textures, retro and many more fabric collections!
Quilt made from Heather Ross’ Tiger Lily collection.

I always love visiting the Heather Ross booth at Quilt Market! Heather has been a favorite designer and friend of Harts Fabric for years! Heather has even visited the store for events and collection releases! Her booth is always so cute and inspirational! We recently received our shipment of her new collection Tiger Lily, and we just adore it!
