New stuff!

Well - you can't just live on fabric alone right?  So we have some fun supplements for the stash...

That is, wool thread bobbins, we've been filling with Aurifil or Genziana wool thread - we have about 50 colors available!  There are about 18 yards of thread per bobbin perfect for travel and wool applique projects...some of our local Sue Spargo fans are loving these.  We have a variety of other threads for embellishing and crafting or even big stitch quilting - a variety of pearl cottons and specialty threads.

In addition, we now offer DMC floss, almost every color you can get those wool felt ornaments under construction without any worries about running out of thread!

Our wool area for bits and pieces has expanded again! We are well equipped to help you find the perfect products for your latest stitchery projects. We have some new patterns and notions - this pattern shown below is going to be versatile - our store sample is almost ready for viewing...something  spooky for sure so you'll want to stop and take a peek.

Curated Short Stack Golden Harvest

Edition No. 3
Here is our 3rd edition of the curated fat quarter bundles….we were trying to capture the golden colors of wheat, grains and hay - summer harvest is winding down don't you think?  Kind of thinking we will work towards something more of a pumpkin flavor this month….we'll see!
Edition No. 3 swatches
And a few soft colors featuring serpentine and basic stripes are some of our latest additions to the reproduction fabrics.

We are preparing for rainy weather, getting some kits cut and some class ideas finalized and hoping to find some sewing time…does that sound about right?  We hope you are finishing up some of your summer projects and thinking ahead for some new fall projects…

Happy Stitching!
