We've started carrying this great wool felt. Many of you have asked for 100% wool felt in the past and we now have a product that we like! It comes in 12" squares, great colors. You all are picking it up so quickly we're hardly able to keep it stocked. We just received a shipment and have more on order. It's perfect for applique on the stocking or tree skirt you're busy making!
I branched out a bit too with purchasing some journals for the store. I couldn't resist these fabric-inspired designs and thought you might not be able to either. They're a great gift for anyone and a great place to keep your sewing ideas and plans in one place. Staple a little swatch of something in there so you've got it handy when you need to find something to coordinate or match thread. I know that creating more systems for me to be better organized is on my start of the new year to-do list.
While we fully encourage everyone to enjoy handmade holiday gift giving, we also can surely appreciate a good craft fair, right? Here's a list of some going on soon. If you don't see the one you're going to, send us the info in a comment!
Our sister store, Modern Domestic, will be joining the festivities at the Crafty Wonderland holiday sale at the Convention Center. If you're headed there, be sure to swing by and try your hand at one of the wonderful Bernina machines. A word of caution: you will fall in love. Saturday and Sunday Dec. 10th and 11th, 11-6 pm.
Hannah will be one of the fantastic crafters showing their wares at Hand Crafted on Dec.10th from 6:30-9:30. It's taking place at The Arbor Lodge, at 1507 N Rosa Parks Way. One more on the 10th: The Shining Star Waldorf School. This is an all day affair with classes, food, gifts, and music to benefit the non-profit Waldorf school. Woolen Vest or Advent Stocking workshop kicks off the day at 9:30 am. The school is located at 2120 NE Tillamook St.

The following weekend, on the 18th is the Handmade NW Artisans Fair just down the street at the Acadian Ballroom at 1829 NE Alberta from 11 am - 5 pm. This one's a benefit for Reach Community Development and they are asking for donations of nonperishable goods.
We have gone on and on about the glories of shot cottons here at Bolt Neighborhood. Hannah and April got busy cutting fat quarters of all these magnificent colors! Thanks for the pic Hannah!
