Custom Bundles for you

January 14, 2022
We've been putting together some sweet little fabric bundles of things we've been hoarding for quite some time. Many are out of print and super-special to us, but we can't hold on to them forever. We hope you find something you like (and maybe are sorry you missed) even if it's just a little bit of it.

Our Classes at Minnesota Pinners

Our Classes at Minnesota Pinners

June 15, 2018
The Minnesota Pinners Conference is coming to the Minneapolis Convention Center next week, Friday June 22 and Saturday June 23, and we've been invited to participate. I've never been to a Pinners Expo, so I'm not quite sure what to expect, but the idea is to see and try some of the kinds of projects/ideas you might have seen on the Pinterest platform.

My first version of the Roscoe, I made from a piece of baby wale corduroy that I bought when my daughter was a baby. I loved the way the bright cornflower,  plum and leaf green floral pattern contrasted with the black ground, almost like velvet, but not quite.

I find myself sewing a lot less from big 4 patterns lately, but I think I've purchased almost every pattern by Cynthia Rowley for Simplicity (and even sewn up several of them).

PATTERN REVIEW: SIMPLICITY 8335

May 01, 2017
It's May Day! We had a cold, rainy/sleety/snowy one here, but that doesn't mean we can't start sewing for Spring anyway. I made this sweet summer top two weeks ago. I used Simplicity 8335 and a lightweight checked voile.
