But there is lots going on at StitchCraft. We just celebrated our 2 year anniversary! Wow, it’s gone by so fast! We have lots of new and exciting classes coming up for spring. I am excited about the Amy Butler Sun & Surf Halter class. This is a great pattern that comes in both girls and ladies sizes so it’s a fun Mommy & Me project.
We are also doing a great followup to the Serger Basics class called Serge a Tank. You will make a simple camisole style top that not only looks fantastic in knit but sews up so quickly! You become a serging convert in no time!
Lots of new fabrics have come in to the shop lately. We got the new Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow collection in, Jessica Levitt’s Timber as well as some new Alexander Henry and Amy Butler prints.
Finally! Our shipment of Bari J’s Full Bloom has arrived.These fabrics are just gorgeous and fresh. I love how painterly the flowers are rendered and the bright color palette.
Bari is a Bay Area designer and this is her first fabric collection for Wyndham. I’ve known her for years through the indie craft scene and that’s part of why I’m so excited about these. Well, that and they are just so pretty. Check out this awesome interview with her to learn how she developed the line and got a deal with Wyndham. Very inspiring!
Long time, no blog update. But that is about to change. I have tons of sewing tips that I am going to be posting. Whenever I am teaching classes, I tend to ramble and drop constant hints. My students are always telling me I need to post all these tips so stay tuned!
In the meantime, we have received some new fabric shipments in the store! Joel Dewberry’s Deer Valley is gorgeous and we should be getting in some of the coordinates soon. We also got in Joel’s Woodgrain in pink, Valori Well’s Del Hi Floral and Alexander Henry’s Birdseed in Yellow! They are all available in the store and on the etsy site.
We just marked our first anniversary and we are celebrating with a sale on fabrics, patterns, notions and more! In this scary economy surviving is definitely something to celebrate! From today through February 28th all full priced supplies are 20% off. In the past year at StitchCraft, hundreds of adults and kids have learned to sew for the first time or have improved their skills to new levels and we look forward to teaching hundreds more this year! So come on down and took a look at the new fabrics that just came in this week (new Amy Butler!) and sign up for some of our new classes like Serger Basics and the Frenchy Bag!
Thanks Petaluma for making our first year such a success. Couldn’t have done it without you!
Yes, the boxes are starting to arrive. Lots and lots of boxes filled with beautiful new fabrics. These fabrics from Erin McMorris’s Park Slope collection are just gorgeous. I can totally imagine them as totebags or skirts. Yay!
