We have another two give aways this month, one for you local folks, and one open to anyone with a US mailing address. We have a 2011 Chinook book that's burning a hole in our drawer for someone in the Portland area that can use it (we're also throwing in a couple more goodies).
The new Stitch magazine has a feature article on the author of our next book, Fanciful Felties by Samantha Cotterill. We'll be throwing in a few extra bits to get in you inspired!
We're going to be introducing a couple of new categories in the coming weeks, including projects to get you motivated and stash busting ideas. We'll be keeping our monthly Give Aways, pattern reviews and finished projects and as always, check in here first to see what new things might be coming in!
(We'll close comments Monday morning at 8am PST.)
The Spring 2011 issue of the popular Stitch Magazine just arrived this week. There are some quite a few skirt and accessory patterns as well as an invaluable section on must know sewing techniques.
I'm pretty excited about the section on knits, because the sleep set pattern is downright adorable:
(I will mention again that we have a massively good stock of knits on hand at the moment.)
In other news, if you missed Mary Adams at her The Party Dress Book booksigning at Powell's the other night, you'll have another chance to meet her at Ristretto Roasters this Thursday, January 20th at 7pm. Ristretto Roasters is located at 3808 N. Williams.
If you are a Portland business interested in finding out more about Supportland, they will be hosting informational meetings around town. Modern Domestic will be hosting one such gathering on January 31st from 9-10 pm. Contact Supportland for more information!
The apparel fabrics are rolling in at an alarming rate. And by "alarming", I mean fantastic. If you're getting ready to take any number of the classes down at MD (Raglan T-Shirt, Intro to Couture, Ties for Tying-- just to name a few), you'll want to come in and look through our tube bins. Pictured is just a sampling of what's new, starting with Michael Miller knits, silks, and rolls of jersey blends (hemp, cotton, bamboo, etc.).
There is also a brand new Liberty print (with more coming in March):
Micheal Miller's Tammis Keefe Tribute is here in quilt weights, along with Bicycles (Micheal Miller Basics) in quilt and coated cotton, and new prints from Alexander Henry, Northcott and Art Gallery.
We are not leaving you hanging this month.
