Here are some new arrivals...
Julie Herman's latest pattern, "Night Sky" uses Kona solids and her "Side Kick ruler.
You can use this ruler for many other patterns including...
This is a fun little table topper to make.
"Bouillabaisse" is back in stock from "Pie In The Sky Quilts"
A super stash busting quilt! This would make a great "Challenge Quilt" Hmmm-will have to think about that!
We have some crafty type patterns in stock too...
"Hang In There Kitty"
This is a cute 9" long kitty made with fabric that "just hangs around". The bottom half is weighted with uncooked rice or crushed walnuts.
This brother and sister pair of cuddly soft pals are designed by Jennifer Jangles. Otis and Rhubarb have additional embellishments sold separately.
Finished size is 16" tall. Here are the buttons, eyes and nose for each...
For Rhubarb. These buttons are hand painted...adorable!
Speaking of buttons. We have some Christmas novelty buttons and ribbons in stock for those Holiday projects.
Bow buttons too. These make great embellishments for those tall Christmas trees we have been making.
Also in the "Crafty" category we have the Kanzashi Flower Makers from Clover.
This size will make a 3" in diameter daisy type fabric flower. So cool for pins, hair accessories, bags and more... We have a smaller one too!
A few new notions to share. This tool is wonderful for seam pressing, ironing your seams open, holding small pieces of fabric while sewing and ironing and more. It has a silicon heat resistant tip on one end and a stilleto like curved point on the other end. Very comfortable in the hand.
"Press Perfect" by Joan Hawley for Clover. $12.95 Love the angled tip for good reach and visibility at the sewing maching. And no more burned fingers at the ironing board.
Have you tried "Soft and Stable" yet? It is a sew in stabilizer that is really a foam layer that gives totes, bags and home dec accessories a very professional finish. We have it in black or white. It comes in a variety of sizes.
A new book by Amanda Murphy uses Kona solid precuts.
We have both "Sunrise" and "Sunset" jelly rolls in stock to make several of the projects from the book. We also have an array of Kona solid fat quarters.
These will make beautiful quilts!
