Treats for Stitcher's

If you're in that last minute scramble for gift ideas, quick finish projects or stocking stuffers - we can set you up!  We've got some great Tulip needle packs, some fun fat quarter boxes (yep, they do look like chalk all rolled up!), some cross-stitch kits and all kinds of fabrics - it's never too late to stitch up a personalized pillow case, pencil case or tote bag right?

We have some great lavender ribbon that takes about 10 minutes to turn into a great sachet gift!  Add some handmade soaps or gourmet tea and you've got a great hostess gift or one size fits all item!  Here are a couple of our latest additions - some skull candy and cute and bright dogs - these don't glow in the dark, but certainly look like they could.  The 2nd group below is digital prints from Hoffman - the Mastery collection which is part of the Hoffman Challenge collection this year - anyone working on something for that event?

We're open regular hours until Saturday December 24th, hope you're enjoying all the holiday madness and stitching away!

Closing at 3:00pm on Saturday December 24th and 31st

Snow Falling

Today we are closed - which is our new normal for Mondays since we are open on Sundays now (as of this past Labor Day).  However, today there is snow so we're happy to have the excuse to watch from the window and relax with some stitching.  Or catch up on myriad tasks from holiday prep to year-end paperwork!  Does that sound like your day too?

Since our weather has been variable - you may want to call and confirm our local conditions before you head out our way this week.  Our weather from one side of town to the other can be different and especially if you are coming from the north or the south...

We've got some great new fabrics - and we're playing with double gauze now too (these latest two are nani iro), great for wearables and perfect for infinity scarves - the one size fits all quick gift!  Just in case you haven't quite got all your gifts planned out just yet!

We've added some great projects to the shop displays - and we have some ideas at the ready if you need a quick gift for a quilter or a last minute project or just some final stocking stuffers to round out our shopping.  

Felt ornaments are a great craft for the kids and you can keep it simple and use glue and glitter for keeping it simple or get fancy with extra stitches and buttons depending on how dedicated your crafters are.  We have a variety of wool felt colors to choose from and loads of floss, some holiday sequins and fancy ribbons too!  The kart paper/fabric tags you see hanging in the photo above are also great projects to add a personal touch to your gift giving and creative projects.  We have this product in silver grey and kraft brown.  You can color, stitch, paint, glue...and just about everything else on this product besides sew it!  Lots of possibilities - we've added it to some of our tote bags recently.

Just a reminder we're closed on Monday's (even when we don't have snow!).

New additions

We are not ready for December...and it looks like it's here and going to come with some cold weather this week.  Not ready for that really either!  The sewing room is looking cozy and is there anyone out there keeping me company and burning the midnight oil in Santa's workshop?

We have lots of new fabric coming in and some great new products and gift ideas for sure - so watch for more updates along those lines in case you are in charge of filling your own holiday wish list?!  We have a quilt on display from Wyndham fabrics featuring the Studio Alphabet line from Marcia Derse so you might want to pop in and view it before it has to continue on it's travels.

We've added some small quilts to the mix - good for a quick gift or new accent for your decorating, add a few pillows or a fun pillowcase to 'gift-wrap' the project in and you're set!
