Looking for inspiration? The garden is a great place! Laura Heine has a new Bouquet Trio pattern coming soon.
Come in and check out all the great patterns for COLLAGE that we do have on hand. We have PRESSING SHEETS, FUSIBLE, STABILIZER, SHARP SCISSORS. We also have TIPS! :)
If you've never tried the collage technique, check out one or two WHATEVER! patterns. Short & sweet, easily accomplished, feel good! A great place to add embroidery if you like!
If you're working on any sewing related collage pieces, you'll especially want to check out our selection of both background fabrics and fabrics with great sewing motifs to be cut out and used in the collage. Depending on how busy we've been, sometimes we even have little bundles of background fabrics already put together for you. ;) Click here for some good SEWING THEMED fabrics.
How fun would those be in a PINCUSHION collage!
The fabric above on the far right reminds me, if you missed my link a couple of weeks ago to the fun vintage video, THE SECRET LIFE OF A SEWING MACHINE, here it is again.
BUBBIE'S BUTTON & BLOOMS, inspired by memories of a grandma who taught her to sew, Kori Turner-Goodhart's newest is the perfect line to start playing with!
For some instant gratification, pick up some of our PRE-CUT bundles. We have STRIPS & SQUARES as well as FAT QUARTERS. 1000s of fat quarters, already cut and ready to go, but we also cut from the bolt, you just have to ask!
We even have on hand the 2-1/2" wide strips for TRUE COLORS, Tula Pink's "basics". We're never sure if we can get more of these DESIGN ROLLS until they come, so grab them when you see them! And we've got them on the shelf now!
Some really interesting quilts are starting to show up on the web using CURIOUSER & CURIOUSER. Check out this quilt from GE DESIGNS. You'll want yardage to "fussy cut" the alternate blocks. This pattern should be here next week.
SEW ALONGS are very popular and SAMPLER SPREE promises to be a good one. 100+ 6" blocks! Start with scraps or PRE-CUTS, your choice. But you need the book, SAMPLER SPREE. We have some and more coming.
This SEW ALONG will start on Moda's BLOG June 16. Click here for details on how to participate. We've also got her favorite BLOC LOC tools!
Trouble finding enough time to sit down toa big project? Maybe you'd just like some simple handwork to keep you entertained. Try one of our DIY EMBROIDERY kits. Click here for more.
Sadly, Eric Carle passed away last week. A popular artist & illustrator, we're fortunate that someone decided to print his artwork on fabric too. We still have some fabrics on the shelf, so click here or stop in to see.
Meanwhile, I really enjoyed this video, Mr Rogers visiting Eric Carle in his studio. Inspirational insight into his technique. I hope you take the time to relax and enjoy it too. Click here.
And finally, it is Friday, which means Kirsten & I will be doing FACEBOOK LIVE at 1 pm, Kansas time (Central).
Come to Charlotte's Sew Natural on Facebook, and we'll fill you in on all the details at 1 pm. But basically, it's 20 to 30 minutes of EXCLUSIVE BARGAINS! Not available in the store! ;)
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend,
PS - you can always check here for ONLINE BARGAINS. SALE! ;)
