Scissors Sharp?

First Friday reminder!!!  

Scissors Sharpening Service

Drop off your scissors by Friday (First Friday of the Month...that means March 3rd!) and you'll have them back and ready for cutting on the following Wednesday!

Do you love vintage bark cloth?  These gorgeous fabrics are inspired by the barkcloth of the 1940's and 1950's - each detail was considered carefully in creating this range with an authentic and vintage voice.  Cathi Bessell-Browne, better known as Gertrudemade has been working with vintage barkcloth creating fabulous 'frocks' in the Australian outback - this is her debut line Outback Wife.  These are handprinted floral designs printed on an exclusive cotton barkcloth base - extra wide at 60inches, and 100% cotton.  This is a gorgeous weight fabric, perfect for wearables, pillows and bags or ...quilts.  Lovely with denims and chambrays and there are a couple of yarn dyed plaids that mix in fabulously.  We are so pleased to carry these and look forward to Cathi's next release.

Spring is surely coming and this wool appliqué project from our local designer Suz is perfect to keep you busy stitching until Easter!  We have a few wool fabric packets and the applique pattern available!  This version has a few floral cotton prints added to frame the stitchery and it would sure be a fun piece to frame up and display!

And perhaps more appropriate for this winter weather we've been having - the wooly block pattern and wool appliqué kits are available for sale now as well.  You can find it on the website or stop by the shop and pick one up if you missed your chance during the Wooly Block event.
