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.

Charming Candy

By April

These little charm packs are called Candy, by Moda. Cute and versatile at only two and a half inches square. We have about six different pack groups, with more to come. They are a nice way to preview an entire line of fabric. One to two of each print and color way are included in each pack.

 

The pinked edges make for a ready to use fabric bundle. Kids would have a great time making little doll clothes or blankets. Think tiny patchwork with sweet squares.


I made two bunting strands with one pack of Candy.  The square format makes them look more like flags. They can really liven up a beige corner of the house. I gifted one half of my flags as a house warming gift. They were hung on the front porch for summer time flare. 


I used this strand of flags to add some movement and fun to my dining area.  Oh yeah….. I didn’t sew a lick. Just used some iron on bonding web with yards of twill tape.  Quick and easy!
