Introducing: Pillow Club!

I'm excited to introduce a new monthly project today - Pillow Club!

Pillows are such a fun, quick sew. They are an easy way to add a pop of color to any decor, and make perfect handmade gifts!

When you join Pillow Club, you will receive each month, a kit containing all of the fabric necessary to complete that month's selected pillow (batting too). Much of the kit will be pre-cut for you, so you can start sewing immediately! You may also have the choice between 2 color palette options. 

Can't wait to see the first pillows we'll be making??? Here you go:
 Meet 'Life Aquatic' designed by Heather Bostic, from her book Pillow Pop:

Colorway A emulates her color choices in the book - various shades of blue and aqua, with a bright orange 'plus'. The borders and backing are a delicious Peppered Cotton woven with aqua and orange threads. 
 Colorway B offers soft pinks with a green 'plus'. The borders and backing are another dreamy Peppered Cotton, this time woven with pink and gray. 
 (Actual fabrics may vary slightly from those pictured)
Kits are $16 + shipping and include everything you'll need to complete this pillow (all fabrics and batting). Need the book too? I've got those as well, and for a special bundle price of $30 when you purchase the book and kit together!

Kits will start shipping June 1st - reserve yours today! :)

We offer fabric, patterns, notions and classes for every age and skill level. The photo above was taken this past Saturday during our Grand Opening event - it was a smashing success!! We heard so much great feedback and excitement about having a new business in town and people are really excited about the classes being offered over the summer.
