fabrics


Back to School already??

So, yeah, where did summer go anyways?  If you blinked you missed it this year, right?  So we were able to wear our new sundresses at least a couple times anyways, and you bet we’ll be layering them with little cardigans and wearing them long into fall!!

I just had to share these new fabrics with you right away, they just arrived yesterday and they are buttery soft corduroy prints by Denyse Schmidt-perrrfect for the washi dress, too!!  (and did you see the version with sleeves?)    Skirts, soft pillows and even short jackets will look awesome in these prints!!   They are soft and drapable & I just love the prints, don’t you?

We’ve added simple skirt and dress classes to the schedule, and some kids sewing classes, too!  Our Summer Sewing Camps were loved by all,  Fall Sewing Camps start the first week in September!!  Many of our classes are beginner friendly, too!

See you soon!

Washi Dress workshop, May 9 & 16

Join us to make this  ever popular Washi Dress, from pattern designer Made-by-Rae .

This will be a fun dress to make and  even more fun to wear!  In the first session, we’ll be reviewing the construction of the dress, and review details.  We’ll also be measuring for sizing and making the bodice of muslin & cutting fabric.  You can choose to join us for the 2nd session to sew the dress, or schedule another time to sew. Advanced beginner level, you should be confident with your machine and  have taken Sewing Machine Basics before making this dress.

May 9 & 16, $45 each session, plus pattern & fabric.  We’ll have some fun  fabrics for this dress in the next few weeks, including rayon and linen prints.    I’m so excited to make this I don’t think I’ll be able to wait!

She’s Back!

Have you seen Amy Butler’s newest collection, Gypsy Caravan?  With the help of Rowan, she has  rereleased her original prints. I loved them when they came out originally, and I love them now!  In fact, I do have a few original pieces in my stash that I just can’t being myself to cut into, isn’t that silly?  The prints are fresh and vintage-perfect for summer dresses, skirts and even summer quilts.  Stop in to see the nice selection we have in store for you!
