Stash bundles are coming … first up is pink. A great way to augment your stash if it’s looking a little thin in a particular shade. As well as the bundles, I’ve added a new section to the site that allows you to shop for fabric by colour. That’s in addition to collections and designers. It’s a work in progress, but look for new additions weekly (or as I find the time).
The March issue of Quilty just arrived. I can’t wait to put my feet up and have a good look.
My favourite notion is … Aurifil thread. I tried it a few years ago, and it was love at first stitch. I like it because it leaves a nice, fine stitching line that makes precision piecing achievable. And my seams press flat. And there’s less lint. And it’s now available in 3 colours in the shop – white, black and the neutral colour I prefer for piecing.
Here’s a product I can’t wait to try. It’s Slicker Iron-On Vinyl from Sew Lazy Girl. You just iron onto any smooth fabric to make it water-resistant. I want to try lining a pouch to make the inside easy to clean. Any thoughts?
The Kona stash builders for March are market greens for St. Patrick’s Day and for spring (which should be just around the corner). Take advantage of 10% off the bundles and yardage all month long.
Tula and Denyse fans take note — you can save 20% on Acacia and Florence with the coupon MARCH20. Denyse fans will also be happy to find prints from two of her legacy collections — Flea Market Fancy and Chicopee — at the awesome price of $8 /yard.
If you’ve been following Facebook you already know that Laura will be hosting a Socialite sew-along later in the spring. According to Laura the Socialite dress is an easy introduction to garment sewing and flattering on all types. Are you in? You’ll need 2¾ yards of fabric and the pattern. You can save $6 on the pattern when you spend $40 or more — use the coupon SOCIALITE when checking out. Choose an awesome Field Study print at $8 /yard and you can have a dress for under $40.
