StitchCraft shop remodel!, originally uploaded by queen puff puff.

Well, it only took a year but I finally got the new shelving that I have been wanting for ages. And look at all the empty space there is that is just waiting to be filled up with new fabrics (which will be arriving in April).

Also, if you look closely you may notice some new patterns. More about those later!

Oh, I just love this fabric collection. So pretty and springy! I can’t wait to make dresses and skirts and bags!

Ah, poor neglected blog….

It seems that I have neglected the StitchCraft blog in favor of quick updates on Facebook. If you’re not a fan yet, you should to get first notification of class schedules and new product!

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.
