It feels like it's been weeks and weeks since I've posted anything about new things at the store. Maybe it has been...anyway, I've got lots to share! A new group from Patty Young for Michael Miller arrived, along with some cute, recognizably Michael Miller animals and dots.
Some quirky designs from Lecien of little mushrooms, deer, and chickens. I really like the many, many eggs around the chickens. Pretty darn cute.
Bright florals from Tanya Whalen's Dolce line. And, lastly, the package that was being opened just before I left the store yesterday was full of fine quality, heavier weigth red/cream and brown/cream ticking. Soft, wide, durable. Perfect for housewares (dishtowels, napkins, place mats, slipcovers, pillows, curtains), or clothing and accessories (bags of all sorts, pants, skirt...).
And, I saved the sweetest for last. Amy, who wrote up the great review on The Sewing Bible, has made up the ever-so-sweet wrist pin cushions. Many of you have asked if we carry them and I've never been fond of the plastic cuff, or ill-fitting elastic. Then Amy showed me hers: soft, pillowy, beauties. The cushion is nice and thick so you won't be pricking yourself when stowing a pin and the strap is made of soft twill tape and velcro. No plastic cuff! Check them out when you're in next. Thanks Amy!
Don't forget! This Saturday (tomorrow), the 30th will be a special sale day to benefit our organization of the month--P.E.O. All books and patterns will be 20% off and at the end of the day 10% of the day's total sales (total, not only books and patterns) goes to P.E.O. So come pick up that title you' ve been eyeing, or anything else you could use and help support a great organization!
