    It’s National Organizational Month!

    A couple of months back, we ran a contest asking many of you what your favorite organizational tips were. In honor of National Organizational Month, we read through all of your tips and tricks, and have decided to feature a new one each week for the month of January. Because we obviously don't want to share tips with you all out there unless they work (and because we love a little DIY project here and there), we will be posting a new tutorial on creating these great space-saving organizational projects right here on the blog every Wednesday in January. Follow along and watch as we get our hands a little dirty, and our sewing rooms cleaned up! This week's featured project is a framed pegboard. In her comment, our customer's tip said, "I put a decorative frame around a pegboard and hung it above my cutting table. It's great for hanging scissors, rotary cutters and more for easy access without cluttering up your sewing space." I thought this was a great project, and one that I could do with some items that I had laying around the house. In total, the project cost me $18.58, and I love the end result.

    My first embroidery project

    As some of you saw on our Facebook page, I am working on my very first embroidery project. I want to start off by saying that I really, really enjoy this craft. While tricky at times, it’s a great way to express your creative side. It’s also a really fun way to add your personal touch to a project. My cousin Sarah is having a boy – the first boy to be born in ...
