The cold has swept through Santa Cruz leaving us longing for more sweaters and cozy clothes. With a rainy weekend ahead, we are planning to hunker down with our sewing machines and make that happen. I’m hoping to get a Drifltess Cardigan started along with another project you will be seeing up on the blog soon.
Hello everyone, Alexis here, I hope you guys all had a wonderful week! Dana is off in Hawaii getting married (CONGRATULATIONS LADY!!), so I’ll be taking over the Love List this week! We’ve seen a lot of great projects this week, and we’ve received a bunch of cool new fabrics too. I know I’ve got a bunch of new projects just waiting to be sewn up, how about you guys? Anyhoo, let’s get down to business, here’s what I’ve been loving this week…
Today we are bringing you a super cute and functional dog bandana. Not only does it look adorable, it makes the perfect gift for your furry friends! The best part is, it slips right on your dog’s collar, easy peasy!
Loominous 2 by Anna Maria Horner is now available in store and online! We are so excited about the new collection of wovens. Featuring unique and beautiful gem tones, it speaks to the quilter and apparel maker alike. The collection is filled with exciting textures and varying weave styles, making it delightful to work with!
We’re keeping this edition of the Love List short and sweet since we can’t wait for the weekend to start – so many sewing projects! What are you guys planning?
We were thrilled to have Karen Foster design our rows to reflect the beautiful scenery around us. You will love how local features come to life displaying a seagull, field of California poppies, and the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains. Karen has written up a wonderful blog post all about her creative process, so be sure to give it a look!
“With a theme of “Home Sweet Home” it was easy to feel immediately connected to the project because after all it is located in the neighborhood where I grew up and I’ve been shopping there since I was a little girl.” (Karen Foster)
In addition to the free pattern, we have three different colorway bundles including a light Kona Cotton, a dark Kona Cotton, and a Shot Cotton bundle.
We have been so pleased by your response to the pattern! Thank you so much for stopping by the store to pick up our row! Don’t forget to come by next year! We are already looking forward to participating since it was so much fun!
Quilt Market set up is underway and we are so excited to see what’s new to come. It always feels a bit like Christmas, as we wait anxiously to see all the new fabrics that are being released. To keep you excited and also occupied for the time being, here are your weekly links.
What an inspiring week around the web. We have been captivated by so many of your images and inspired by crafters of all genres. Here is a sliver of what we are loving this week. Enjoy the links!
