"Woven" fabrics are very trendy right now. Check out this article to read about this collection that we just got in. You will find this fabric in everything from quilts to garments.

In our shop sample, you can see the nice drape provided with this collection. If you are planning to make the Easy Three-sy Jacket, this is a great option.


This bright and cheery collection is sure to get you thinking of everything summer! 

We think the new pattern, Coaster Ride is a perfect fit for When Life Gives You Lemons. With Coaster Ride, you can "create a designer silicone coaster set in a fabric holder. The silicone protects surfaces against hot, cold and wet beverages and your customers customize with their favorite fabrics. Four transparent silicone coaster pieces, instructions and template are included to make a set of 4 silicone coasters in a fabric coaster holder. Silicone is 100 percent food grade silicone and heat resistant up to 450 degrees. Refill coasters available".
