What a weekend!

What did you do during the blizzard last weekend?  I hope  some of you had a chance to sewmonopoly and perhaps finish up some projects!  Have you tried quilting with Superior Mono Poly Thread?  It worked beautifully on my quilt and I even tried “Edge to Edge” quilting with it in both the bobbin and the top thread.  There were no issues with broken or stretched thread..what a great product for quilting!

April Showers

April showers bring flowers..but what about April “snow showers?”  They bring finished sewing projects!  This is also the time to think about baby showers.  We have a great collectiminkyon of minky for adorable baby blankets or quilt backing.  Stop in to check them out!

Is it Spring yet?

It looks like we have another week of cooler temperatures ahead.  However, the weather certainly helps to be able to concentrate on sewing projects that need to be finished! How many unfinished projects do you have?  Check out our participants’ PHD (projects half done) items that are finished .  Aren’t they great?  Project for April is #8.

Just around the corner…

The robins arrived last week and that means spring is here!  The warmer temperatures and longer days are an inspiration to change the home decor.  How about this adorable little bird fabric for pillows to add a fresh new look of spring?bird fabric

In the Hoop

If you are looking for a fun project to complete fairly quickly, try one of the many “in the kitchen towel in hoophoop” embroidery collections!  We have several samples made up and a nice variety to choose from..

Neat product..

_thumbLast night I was playing around with some embroidery and I wanted to try out this new product we have called “Terial Magic”.  It is a liquid stabilizer that is pretty easy to use and I was impressed by how well it worked as a fabric stabilizer!  I plan to try it next on some t-shirts for a quilt.  We have some available here at the store.
