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

Bee Creative

There is something beautiful about the honeybee and the beehive.   Both are so important to our world.

With this collection, Deb Strain (from Moda) has presented a vintage reflection of a bee-theme using quotations and typeface, and combined it with a more contemporary collection of patterns and designs. 

We carry 1/2 Yard Paks, yardage and charm squares!
