A Sweet Treat

Well, our Anniversary sale is off to a great start - maybe the good weather will hold off another day so we can stay inside and play with fabric?! If you haven't made it over to Two Thimbles yet, you should come by soon...our sale runs through today and you won't want to miss out on the fun!

Here is our newest pincushion...a sweet treat, if you ask me! These little 'chocolate pin keeps' were just too cute to pass up. We packaged up two colorways - one using a Civil War print, and another in a funky geometric fabric. The base is made of a faux leather we're now carrying- a great material for a handbag. These little treats are a snap to whip up, and would look just darling lined up in a little chocolate can't have too many pincushions, right? To top it off, we added this vintage Whitman's sampler box to the photo...just the right touch, don't you think?

The samples below are from a class that we're offering in June- Judy Robertson of Just Imagination is coming on Saturday, June 9th to share some piecing secrets and techniques, in a project we're calling Sliver Inserts. Judy is a local artist who dyes her own fabric- and she'll be bringing some of her own pieces for a trunk sale! Her art is so inspiring that we've quickly filled the class- BUT we will have a waiting list for those of you who may be interested for a future date with Judy!

Happy Stitching!
