New Arrivals

Our shop is bursting with new bolts of fabulous fabric! Over a dozen new lines have arrived just this month! We have been busy sewing Christmas projects - yes, you heard that right - it's time to think about Christmas! We have catered our fall classes toward fun gift ideas... aprons to stockings, table runners to wall hangings. Need a fun gift idea? We've got you covered!

Pictured here is a new "cheater fabric" by Moda called "My First Quilt". The hexagon pattern is printed right on the fabric. I quilted it with a tight stipple and washed it in warm and threw it in the dryer. I know, not your typical care instructions for a handmade quilt! But the results were to die for! It looks like an antique treasure from my grandmother's hutch. Almost every day, someone asks who on earth pieced all those tiny hexagons. (hee hee) The fabric is 60" wide and is perfect for any size quilt.

Other "must see" new arrivals: (check back, I'll be posting links to the Christmas fabrics soon!)

Back to School!

Is summer really almost over? I can't believe the kids will be back to school in just 2 weeks! I've been having fun with Patty Young's new children's clothing patterns... the patterns are so well written and super easy to follow. These darling "Frida" tops will be the perfect addition to our Kindergarten wardrobe! Our Fall class schedule will be finalized and posted soon - so don't miss our "back to school wardrobe" classes!

We have so many fun new fabric lines - Christmas and Halloween galore! That's right - it's time to start thinking Christmas. The kids go back to school and we dust off old Bessie (the sewing machine). We just unpacked Moda's new Monkey's Jumping on the Bed flannels, Patty Young's new fabric line, along with a whole bunch of new kids flannels. They are all absolutely adorable! Come visit the store to see all the new additions!
