Just In: sock monkeys, stars and books

by Gina

We’ve been busy doing some redecorating around the store. We’re excited to be finding new ways of organizing many of our goodies to make shopping easier. Stop in soon and see what we’re up to! In the meantime, here are the latest arrivals:

Those well loved Moda sock monkeys, back in time for holiday PJs.

Simple stars, in great colors from Andover.

You may have noticed the uptick in posts lately. We’re working hard to offer up all sorts of gift ideas for the holiday season. Here’s a great option for those who don’t sew and have a crafter/ sewist on their gift list: books. We just received four new titles that offer a wide range of topics and approaches.

Essential Sewing by Tessa Evelegh includes projects for men, women, the home and more. It comes with a CD full of instruction for projects making sure you learn a very broad range of techniques.

The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking by Wendy Ward. Wendy’s designs will allow to supplement or create an entire wardrobe you’ll love to wear. Easy, stylish, and creative.

An example of Wendy Ward’s creative alterationsThe Little Spark: 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity, by Carrie Bloomston and Improvising Tradition by Alexandra Ledgerwood.

Just In: knits, voile, Essex and more

by GinaThese great new knits (top pic) and voile (lower pic) are making me think summer sewing! All but the interesting “snaggy” knit are from Art Gallery, and just like their fantastic quality quilting weight cotton, these knits are soft and stretchy and the voile is airy and silky. I continue to be impressed with their fabrics! And, a few new prints on quilting weight are here too:

Fabulous new colors of Andover chambray….and a metallic! It’s tricky to see those silver metallic threads on the white, but they’re there. Our latest Essex colors and a great two color seersucker. We also have classic red/white and greyish-navy/white. These sweet Scandinavian birds are a welcome addition to the mix.


We are restocked with dish toweling. Come and get it! And, we mentioned it last week, but I thought I’d toss in a photo of this great new line from Cloud 9, organic cotton:

Happy sunny Thursday! Enjoy and we’ll see you soon.

Just In: Liberty of London and Blenders 

By April 

Liberty of London prints have arrived!

A book about Liberty projects for inspiration.

Subtle tone on tone small scale prints from Dear Stella and Andover.

Some apparel weight pieces from Theory and Jcrew silk cotton blends.

One more fun group from dear Stella. Pink elephants with some great companion pieces.

  If you live outside of the Portland area and would like to get your hands on some of these goodies, give us a call. We are happy to ship out.

Happy Sewing!
