Isn't she gotta love Stevie Wonder!  But I am actually referring to the lastest fabric line from Moda, Sweetwater's Sew Mama Sew.

I had the pleasure of cutting the fat quarters off the fresh, new bolts yesterday; and I loved each and every cut! 

In addition to the yardage and precuts, we have the fantastic canvas prints that Sweetwater produces.  I have already framed one and have it on a shelf in my home! 
Come in and get yours today!

Something NEW !!!

Look at this FANTASTIC table runner that Cecilia made for the shop.....
Spicy Spiral Table Runner

Don't you just LOVE it?  We have a great customer who brought her daughter into the store while she was in town several weeks ago, and she showed us a table runner she had been working on for Halloween.  We got so excited when we saw it.  We Googled the pattern name and found the designer.  When we saw the pattern cover on the Internet, we were so surprised to see that the designer showed the runner in more traditional fabrics.  We thought it definitely called for a more fun fabric combination, and was definitely perfect for Halloween fabrics!  We also think this runner made out of some bright Christmas fabrics, think THE GRINCH, would be darling too!

So thank you to Cathy and her daughter for sharing this great pattern with us. 

If you would like to see Cecilia demonstrate how to make this runner, come into the store during the FIRST ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE SERIES, brought to you by the Wasatch Front Shop Hop - September 27th - 29th.

Make it Monday!

Last year,at this time, my sisters, sisters-in-law, our mom & I all went to the Workman cabin in Midway and had a weekend retreat of sewing, card-making, movie watching and of course eating yummy food!  There were a couple of projects I brought along for us all to make while we were away.  One of them was a darling appliqued pillow from the Art to Heart book Bittersweet.  And the other was an embroidered/appliqued Halloween project I had designed.  I found the completed project in my 'fall bin' a couple of weeks ago and I still adore it.  So I decided to share it with you today. 

This project can be made in as little as an hour, with whatever Halloween fabric scraps you have on hand.  Or as you can see from the photos of mine, I used some basic orange and basic black scraps of fabric for the bunting pieces.  You will also need a 8" wooden embroidery hoop (I painted my wooden embroidery hoop black), a small piece of osnaburg, a scrap of solid gray fabric, a 2" strip of Heat 'n Bond LITE, and a little bit of black embroidery floss.  Not only is this project a quick one, but it is inexpensive too!  Click here to download the PDF pattern and get started right away on this 'spooky' little project  :)

  • Start by tracing the bunting shapes onto the paper side of the Heat 'n Bond LITE.  Iron to the wrong side of your fabrics scraps and cut out on lines.  Using the pattern as a guide to lay out your bunting pieces, remove the paper and iron in place. 
  • Next, trace the tree shape onto the osnaburg and stitch with one strand of black embroidery floss.  
  • Cut a piece of solid gray fabric large enough to fit into down into the hoop.  Using the pattern as a guide, lay the gray fabric across the bottom of the stitchery, and sew 1/8" in from the top edge using your sewing machine. This will hold the fabric in place.
  • Trace the word 'spooky' onto the gray fabric and stitch using 2 strands of black embroidery floss.
  • The final step is to place the stitchery into the hoop, trim the excess fabric away from the back, and you are done!  (for a great tutorial on framing in an embroidery hoop, click here)
