Did you know September is National Sewing month? It's the perfect time to indulge your passion for sewing and quilting. A great opportunity to introduce yourself to a technique you've never tried before. September is a time to celebrate our passion, but we know the creative, therapeutic and calming affects of sewing are joys that we can celebrate throughout the entire year.
This week we received the Diva Frame Wallet pattern and frame supplies. These are so easy to make. And just wait until your friends see it - they'll want one too.
We now have feet for your tote or purse. Available in silver or gold and come 4 to the package.
Riley Blake sent ginghams in a variety of colors - hot pink, navy, gray, yellow, aqua, brown, black and orange.
We received some oriental fabrics - a dainty pink with paisleys and flowers, and an orange with bright flowers and butterflies that is beautiful.
The second set of Frivols by Moda have arrived. What are Frivols? They're a series of collectible tins. They're a new Moda precut. They're quilts. They're about having fun! Each month a new fabric collection will be featured . . . September is polka dots and paisleys.
Some modern canvas prints arrived in yellows and grays. Would make some great cushions, pillows or tote bags.
A new pattern arrived called Fabric License Plate Traveling Wristlet - the pattern includes directions by Sealed with a Stitch to make the cute bag. Stitch up a snazzy wristlet using fabric license plates to show where you've been.
