Cotton Works Wovens have arrived!

Reminiscent of classic woolens from famous mills, Cotton Works Wovens are pure-cotton fabrics woven to look and feel like their pure-wool counterparts.  These “cotton laines”  (French for "wool") have the thickness of wool but as cottons, they don’t require extra care or expense to maintain.  As woven plaids, stripes and textures – not printed – Cotton Works can be used for quilts, home-décor, stitchery and rug-hooking.  It makes a beautiful foundation for wool appliqué.

Sew Clippin' Cute!

Sandy stitched this fun bag from fabric designed by Cotton+Steel.  Of course every bag needs handles.  So she choose these fun, clip-ons that are brand new @theTHREADS!  These handles come in several colors.  We have kits or you can choose your own fabric with handles to match.  We think these are "Clippin' Cute."

Let Summer Begin!

SLICE OF SUMMER BENCH PILLOW

Start by making one large "bench pillow" form. Then change out a new cover for that pillow form for each season or holiday! This is the idea behind  patterns for interchangeable bench pillow projects. Instructions for making the pillow form, as well as the "Slice of Summer Watermelon" cover are included.
Finished size 16" x 38".
We have kits and patterns @ the THREADS
