We have started the fabulous Wheelhouse Medallion project here at the shop and these gorgeous blooms are part of the group designed by Anna Maria Horner for Freespirit Fabrics.  These prints make great wearables, quilts and cut apart and reconfigured for amazing collage pieces to embellish and enjoy!  No weeding required for these colorful blooms.

It's berry season for sure here in Whatcom County, but on the eastside of the state, it's all about the cherries!  This table runner was requested for a new home and was a fun distraction from mask making!




These cheerful prints from the Cherry Lemonade collection make great kitchen accessories, and I've had a few customers choose the florals for face masks too....and then there is this fresh quilt kit all ready to go if you want a larger project!

We just received this indigo kantha cloth - pre-stitched layers for a great bag, pillow or summer jacket or infinity scarf perhaps?!

A few more additions to our Charley Harper collection of fabrics - these are poplin and the weave and density of these fabrics make them a really nice weight for summer loungewear, and pillowcases...you may see a few of these prints featured in masks around town too - a fun choice when you want to make a statement with our latest fashion accessory!

A recent group added to 1800's collection is the gorgeous floral grouping Wildflower Woods designed for the period c. 1870-85, by Evonne Cook for P&B Studios.  These designs were inspired by the works of Gene Stratton Porter, an environmentalist, author, naturalist and photographer ahead of her time.  You can read about Gene and the Indiana State Museum site named in her honor here:   https://www.indianamuseum.org/gsp

We are enjoying such a variety of projects right now through our customer requests - long time WIP's that are getting a fresh look, some new projects underway for upcoming graduations and births, some collaboration projects and of course...where would we be without mask making!  We've been putting some fun packages together to pop in the mail too - sometimes we get a bit of guidance and sometimes we get to have a bit of creative fun!  Thanks for sharing your projects new and old with us!

If you're stuck inside with our rainy weather and fresh out of puzzles, we have a new combination puzzle and crossword challenge option for you!  



And we do have some new fabric arriving - a few boxes are showing up as warehouses resume shipping and staffing levels start to pick up.  Most of our orders are taking a bit longer to arrive, but the fabric reps indicate most issues with imports and printing delays have been resolved!

Two Years and a Lifetime!

2 years ago...Remember when we celebrated with Betsy Chutchian for a fun doll quilt 'crib' turning and day of play - no masks required!
Crib turning

Workshop with Betsy

This year it's been a bit quiet and we can't imagine sitting elbow to elbow and sharing a table, but one thing that's made this COVID event bearable for so many of us is our life-sustaining quilting and patchwork creative outlet.  If you've stitched up your stash over these past few weeks, we have some fresh fabric and Betsy really delivered with the recent release of Nancy's Needle.

Precuts!

Mixing it up with strips!



A wonderful variety of prints, great combination of color and scale....can't wait to play!  It's the next best thing to a workshop and quilt display!

 Enjoy!

June Already

We are limiting our content this week in observance of the significant issues facing our country both in recovery from the pandemic and in recognition of the long-standing racism and inequality that exists. We hope to see change and support that effort.     

Two Thimbles continues to accommodate the demand for mask making supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) as well as support the community to create, collect and deliver PPE in our local area.

For now, we are available with reduced hours by phone for curb-side pick up services or shipping.  In-person shopping by appointment only.  Please use the booking tool on our website to schedule an appointment and review the confirmation email carefully for details about your visit.  https://www.twothimbles.com/

We encourage you to place an order over the phone or via email and allow us to do the shopping for you!  We've been adding more items to our website and you can always visit online 24 hours a day 7 days a week!    Feel free to call with any questions!
