Just In: Apparel goodies!

by Gina

Last week I hopped a plane to LA to meet with some vendors on their turf. It was a treat! It was so fun to mill about their space and get to pick and choose whatever I saw, not limited to what they’re able to get into a suitcase, or two or three and bring up this way. Cameron and Adrianna spent the first few days of the week getting it out for you all, and it’s a great collection of goodies. Here are a few shots, but honestly, I was busy with continuing the process of getting them ready, so this is not a complete showing of all we have. Pop over to our Instagram to see more photos, and better yet, stop in and gaze upon them, feel them and imagine something great in your world made from them!

Liberty of London Tana Lawn printsJust some of the new knits!silk, silk blends, rayon, rayon blends….A fun group of orange and blue: stretch linen, silk cotton and laceStop by to see more. Hope you’re staying cool and your sewing space is in the basement and not the attic!

Drop Cloth Samplers

by Adrianna

It has gotten to the point where it just might be cooler outdoors (if you don’t have air conditioning), and the future forecast is looking like this 90+ weather is going to stick around for a while. I highly suggest finding a nice big shady tree, or a river, and stay around it for as long as possible! Got the creative bug though? Thankfully, we just restocked our Drop Cloth Embroidery Samplers and a new book from Rebecca Ringquist:)!! These samplers are perfect for being outdoors, or anywhere for that matter, and no experience necessary! Have you been wanting to learn embroidery or want to advance your knowledge on the craft? Look no further. These samplers have you practicing all sorts of techniques and the final result is a great wall hanging. Rebecca’s book is a more in depth tutorial on embroidery and teaches you how to get your creative juices going and design your own embroideries. Before you know it, you will be embroidering everything! And taking these with you everywhere!
