Quilt Finish & Quilting Fun

Have you all been able to sneak some precious quilting time into your holiday vacations? I know I’ve been enjoying some much needed vacation to finish up lots of projects. This is a quilt I just finished before Christmas that I started, oh, 2 years ago? Or was it 3? It’s called “Wonky Town”, and it’s now hanging proudly in my daughter’s room. It started out as me experimenting with Wonky Log Cabin blocks from ...

Peppermint Forest Dress

For my little “nieces'” birthday, I really wanted to make her something…so I decided on a cute little dress by Simplicity. I used fabrics from my Peppermint Forest collection. I think the dress came out quite well…and best of all…li’l Mia just loves it!  It’s a tad big on her, but at least this way she can grow into it and wear it longer. Peppermint Forest is just so ...

2011 Cyber Monday Sale

I know Black Friday sales are a family tradition in some households that often involve long lists, road maps, and camping in parking lots, but I prefer to avoid the crowds and stay home on Black Friday. Now Cyber Monday sales, on the other hand, are more my style. I love the convenience of shopping from home (or even at work on my lunch break!). Now, we know not everyone can shop at work, so this year we're starting our Cyber Monday sale a day early, on Sunday 11/27/11 at 6 a.m. PST for all you early birds on the West Coast. The sale doesn't end until Tuesday, 11/29/11 at 8 a.m. PST, so you'll have plenty of time to log on and stock up on some super Cyber Monday deals. Bookmark this Cyber Monday landing page and check back Sunday morning to see what's on sale, or sign up for our weekly e-newsletter, and we'll deliver a reminder to your inbox on Sunday. Happy shopping!

Top 5 Uses for Clearance Fabric

Have you noticed how much fabric is packed into our Clearance section lately? With the Solid & Mirage closeout colors, it's over 200 fabrics! I think I throw some clearance fabric into every order I place because it's just so useful, and such a good deal! I thought I'd make a list of my favorite top uses of clearance fabric (not that you need any enabling when the price is that low).

Bed & Breakfast Fabric Sale

I love the whimsy of Winter Fun and the retro feel of Wrap It Up, but to me Bed & Breakfast is the perfect winter collection. The rich, deep colors, sprigs of evergreen, and tiny berries are wintery without being too Christmas-y, but they still lend themselves to holiday decorating and sewn gifts. Last year we sewed up a free pattern for cute gift card holders and a free wine bottle cozy pattern in Bed & Breakfast as gift ideas.

Antoinette Fabric Sale!

Starting today, one of my favorite fabrics went on sale.  The Antoinette line is a fun, vibrant fabric with some beautiful patterns.  Nothing makes me more excited than making (or receiving) a beautiful apron and this fabric is just ideal!  Antoinette is most definitely our sweetest collection to-date.  Coordinating prints run from the palest yellow and pink to bright, vibrant fuchsia, lime green and dark periwinkle.  In addition to the cutest apron ever, this collection is perfect for a little girl's bedroom or to dress up your table for a tea party.

Cheep Talk is 40% off!

Yahoo! Cheep Talk is on sale! This is one of my favorite groups-and it’s 40% off right now. I have made a bag, a wall hanging, and a table runner… you can see a trend here, right? And although I’ve already bought several yards of Jay (the stripe – it makes great binding) and all of the colors of Sparrow (the dot – who doesn’t love a dot?) I will have to buy more so ...
