If you are in town this Friday...

Come get your Glitter on... Molli Sparkles will be here and has offered to be your personal shopper. Yep he is back for our Anniversary... love that he comes to spend time with us each year about this time....Here is a quote from his blog:


"... I've been called away on a work trip to Cupertino, California, leaving this Monday for a week! Well, you know what that means? I will definitely be heading to Intrepid Thread for some fabric R&R! Not to make a big giant deal about it, but if you're in the area next Friday, January 30, I better see you there! I'll only be signing autographs from 11:28 - 11:57, but it will be the best twenty-nine minutes of your life. Seriously, I'll be hanging out with the Intrepid Thread team all day on Friday until about 3pm, and I'd love to meet you, and help you buy some fabric. Come on, you know you want to shop with me, because I want to shop with YOU!"

Being Real...

Hey Everyone,

Well you know me I have to be honest... I have not been around for a few days. My mother has been diagnosed with an advanced stage of Cancer and that has kept me away from the shop most of the last 2 weeks. I did take some time over the weekend last weekend to sew with some of my besties and I promise I will show pictures soon... if you follow my instagram you have seen them. We have gotten a ton... literally of fabric in the last week and a half... all of Cotton & Steel and Alison Glass' new Sunprints and Color Theory from V & Co... hope you will go over to the shop and have a look. I promise pretty pictures when I get back to the shop on Saturday. In the mean time here are some quick snaps I took on my way out the other day...




I love this double gauze!

Happy Monday!

Hi Everyone,

I think I need a holiday from the Holidays. It is funny that just when everyone is relaxing with friends and family we are in our crazy busy season. Gearing up for the New Year of festivities in the shop and having crazy stupid sales :)

So my tradition on the blog has been to pick a Word of the Year at New Year. The word of the year is Healthy.


 I have been feeling terrible. When I started the shop I was exercising an hour a day and losing weight and feeling really wonderful but the stress and long hours have really taken a toll on me. So this year I am working on getting that back.

And this (above picture) also shows my second goal of the year... I want to learn to draw. I may never be a great artist but I have always wanted to be able to draw so ... I want to get better at drawing this year. I have been practicing almost every day for a couple weeks and yesterday I took a class with the Fabulous Julie Fei-Fan Balzer had so much fun... Here are a couple of pictures... even if they are off the phone...





Now anyone that has seen my handwriting knows this is really good drawing for me :)


Now about sewing... I am working on a plan to help you sew your stash in 2015... you know? #sewmystash2015 So there is a little something coming on that in the next few weeks ... keep an eye out. In the mean time the Patchwork City BOM is almost closed. I am only taking 4 more sign ups for Westside and 6 more sign ups for Metro. So get it while the getting is good :)

Have a super Monday!

Happy New Year! Doe... It's here and more....

Hi Everyone,

The rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated. I have had a cold but nothing life threatening :) I have just been working behind the scenes trying to set up some new and exciting things for the New Year over here. a new newsletter is coming out today... you won't want to miss it. You can sign up on the right hand side of the blog if you don't already receive it.

The long anticipated Doe has arrived minus one bolt that I am told won't arrive until February... who knows? It is a crazy industry... but oh so pretty.....


We also got this gorgeous... like I could eat it up... Petal & Plume by Bari J. The peacocks are gorgeous and the colors are so sumptuous... I love Art Gallery. I adore the feather prints and bought the knit of the navy feather print too... have to think up a new clothing project for it.


Art Gallery also added a few new solids and they are so rich they look like silk:


And... some adorable canvas for making bags... or covering chair cushions... oh my. It is called Geo Pop


 Oops I forgot to mention... I also created this custom bundle called Frosty New Year just for you... it makes me happy and was inspired by that bird print from Anna Maria on the top... love the colors she put in that print... you can find it in fat quarters and half yards in the shop,





Have a happy Holiday day :)
