Just in: more tubes, and the Staple Dress!

by Gina, photos by Heather

We were busy this week rearranging some of our fixtures to accommodate more fabric rolled on tubes.  We’ve been really excited about this shift for a while and are glad the switch-a-roo is done.  Now, we just get to welcome more pretties!  New to our tube collection are gorgeous cotton lawn prints.  Perfect for your summer wardrobe.

And, the long awaited for Staple Dress pattern has arrived.  Simple, elegant, and versatile.  This can be an evening out dress or an everyday dress, depending on what you use.  Check it out, you’ll be whipping up a whole collection of them!




Just in: where do I start?!

by Gina

It may be quicker to let you know what isn’t new right now!  Not really, but we do have so many new things.  It’s a bit crazy.  Let’s get started, shall we?

We’ll start off with the non-fabric newbies.  A fresh box of ribbons!  Including some designed by Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner.  Lovely, lovely.

The latest, and very cute, patterns from Sew Liberated. 

Our new outdoor fabric selection.  We’re pretty excited to offer this!

New canvas and medium weight cottons from Premier Prints.

Gorgeous light weight cotton and cotton/silk.  So soft and elegant.

More and more knits!  The middle one has hot pink flocked stars…oh yeah.

Cotton, linen, hemp blend and more cotton.

Spring House from Moda.

Cameras and raffle tickets in 2wenty Thr3e also from Moda. 

Whew, there you have it.  A glimpse of just some of the new goodies that await you. A huge thank you to Hannah and Heather for help with the pictures.

And, don’t forget there’s just a few more days to our March Madness promotion!

Happy Spring Break! What are you sewing?

by Gina

Spring Break can bring an interesting combination of free time, family time, wonky work schedules…it seems around our house it’s a little different each year.  This year I’ve found myself with some free time, thanks to my co-workers and in-laws.  A huge thanks!  I’ve been having a hard time staying away from the store, especially since we received so many (really, so many) new wonderful fabrics the end of last week.  I’ve been busy day dreaming of all the projects I want to make.  Here are a few ideas…

Our selection of knits and light weight cottons is pretty unbeatable right now.  We also have the new Laurel shift pattern from Colette Patterns and some great options for this—both for the underlined version (lace in black, cream, navy, wool/rayon eyelet, cotton eyelet…) and non-underlined version. 

I’ll put up more pictures on Thursday of other new things.  There’s now a selection of outdoor prints available, some wonderful heavier weight canvas prints and I’ll show off more knits.  Such fun!  Tell us what you’re sewing this month.  We’d love to hear!

A couple of reminders: we will be closed this coming Sunday for Easter.  Our big store-wide sale will be April 12th-14th.  Fabric, books and patterns, all marked down!
