Just In: ribbons and patterns edition

by Gina

Beautiful new ribbons have arrived!

We’re ready to supply ideas for uses if you need help with that. These beauties are prefect to finish a hem on a skirt, embellish a bag or pillow, become curtain tabs, tie up a special gift.

We also have some patterns from Amy Butler that show off some more great uses:

And, if you’re looking for fine leather straps for your bag, be sure to check out Hannah’s gorgeously made ones at the store!

More patterns from Sew Libertated, Noodlehead and Oliver + S are here. If you’re viewing this from afar, we’re happy to ship things out. Just give us a call.


Just in: Slicker, seersucker, and voile

After a couple of days away, sewing our hearts out, we’re refreshed and ready to help with your next project! It was fun to come back to a stack of little boxes filled with new goodies.  This adorable Robert Kaufman “slicker” coated cotton print was one of those new packages!  Cute, and perfect for the wet weather we’re supposed to be getting more of later this week.

And, for the warm weather after that…some pretty new voiles.  Top picture are Amy Butler’s latest, these came in a little bit ago, we just hadn’t featured them yet and couldn’t possibly pass them by.  The lower picture is the gorgeous “Palos Verdes” line of organic cotton voile from Cloud 9.  And, seersucker is back!  The perennial summer cloth. 

Stay tuned for posts on our fab new samples made over the past couple of days.

See you soon!

Just in: So much!

by Gina

I feel like we’re finally coming out from the craziness of the end of the year and able to get back on track.  Whew!  Thank you all for another great year.  We are always so grateful for the community that supports this store and keeps it chugging along.  Now, let’s get you up to speed with the latest goodies, those of you who haven’t been in for a little bit.

This week we’ve welcomed in:

A pair of great, floaty,dotty double gauze.  Along with these arrived a selection of fabulous knits, including some more stripes.

And, the shipment so many of us have been waiting for….new Liberty of London prints.  Oh so lovely. I’ve got my favorite, do you?

A great new selection of medium weight cotton prints are here.  From top to bottom, prints from: Amy Butler, Portlander Erin McMorris, Joel Dewberry and Tina Givens.

And, a few things we received right before our Christmas break, from Alexander Henry:

And, they’re back! Heath print in heavy weight cotton!

We received some really nice water repellent canvas in December.  Perfect for outdoor bags in our soggy part of the world. 

We look forward to seeing you.  Happy New Year!
