Featured Panel
Summertime by Maywood.
Bright, clear colors in traditional red, white and blue, the panel has sweet summer scenes of fireworks, watermelon wedges, pots of flowers and more printed in stitch work. You can embroider over the lines or enjoy it as is (like we did!) The panel comes in red or blue. The 6" blocks are perfect for hand shading and turning into pincushions. We used the Marti Michell Fussy Cutter ruler to square up those panel blocks and the Sashing Star Ruler to make short work of the piecing.

Focus on handwork
Polish Souvenirs: Wool and embroidery with a bit of bead work! Brought to you by Granny's Legacy, this set of 18 ornaments was inspired by Polish Pottery. The kit includes the pattern book (with super sized images so you can see the stitch detail), all the hand dyed wool, beads and backing fabric.  (Floss, hanging ribbon and optional fusible is not included.) Make them as ornaments, like we did, or connect them to create a stunning table topper. Click here to shop for the kit.

Windsock Kits!
These kits include colorful strips of UV protected flag fabric, the pattern by Gypsy Quilter and the pop up hardware, hanging hook and interfacing to make a colorful windsock. It's part of our new Grab and Sew complete kits. We've packaged it with everything you need except thread!
