I thoroughly enjoyed flipping through this book this morning. Stich Wear Play is a new book in the shop that we suggest! The patterns are classic and practical and for girls and boys! The book is organized by season and there’s a lovely winter coat that can be for your boy or girl. I’ve snapped some eye candy below and our little model is wearing the boy’s shirt and short set by Adrianna. Enjoy and see you soon!
Another one of Adrianna’s sweet little samples is hanging in the shop. She’ll be sewing more from this book so stay tuned!
We love Annie! We know her for beautiful quilts, delightfully sharing her projects with us and Peggy’s shopper buddy. It’s always a treat when she stops in for a visit. Meet her and see some of the beautiful things she’s been working on over the years.
When did you start sewing? Who taught you? I never learned to sew as I was growing up. I did other creative things - weaving, painting, embroidery - but I never learned to sew. As my daughter grew up she became friend with a wonderful group of girls, and I met their mothers. Luckily, two of them knew how to sew and they taught my daughter. Over the years, we all became very close, and I am fortunate that one of them took me under her wing and taught me to sew as well. I started with pajamas and a tee shirt quilt, and knew right away that quilts would be my passion.
What is the most challenging part of sewing for you? What part of the process do you like the most?
I don’t know much about clothing, and it’s very exacting so I find it pretty challenging still. I need more instruction and more practice. I have done some of my own quilting but mostly take my things to Nancy at Just Quilting. That’s another area in which I have so much more to learn.
Adrianna has been quite the busy bee with all our new samples! I love these color block pouches made with Moda’s cotton/linen Mochi dot and our new brightly colored brass zippers! The large one is the perfect size for makeup or an evening clutch and the small one will fit your rouge and license for a dancing date night when you only need to carry essentials. We a have beautiful selection of dots and zippers right now so visit soon and stay tuned for some more of Adrianna’s beautiful samples!
