Keep Hot Hot and Cold Cold with Thermal Fabrics

Friday, 10 June 2016 1:00

Years ago the Thermos® company had the slogan, "Keeps hot things hot and cold things cold." You can't say it much better than that. Did you know there are fabrics that help you do the same thing? These aren't the heavy industrial materials that keep steelworkers, astronauts, and firefighters safe, but honest-to-goodness fabrics you can actually sew with. 

Sewing Escape Retreats Are Rolling

Wednesday, 08 June 2016 1:00

Our first Retreat events have been such a blast! It’s a fabulous experience to be in new parts of the country with new sewing friends for a weekend of creativity. We gathered up a few photos from the first events, and will continue to share images with you as additional Retreats take place over the next months. A big, BIG thanks to our Hosting Dealers and of course – to all the enthusiastic attendees. Haven’t heard about these Retreats yet? Lean in! 

The Safari Duffle

Tuesday, 07 June 2016 1:00

Can't you picture Harrison Ford slinging this amazing duffle over his shoulder as Indiana Jones?! We blended heavy canvas and faux leather with webbing and brass zipper accents for the dashing exterior. Inside is a tough rip-stop nylon lining. Even if you're not a world-renowned archeologist and adventurer, this bag is is great way to pack your stuff, whether you're heading across town to the gym or getting away for the weekend. Father's Day is coming up, and this would make a very nice gift for your personal action hero. The combination of fabrics, colors and textures has the perfect feel – a little bit retro and a whole lot cool (just like Dad).  

Smock Style Reversible Apron in Meow or Never by Moda

Monday, 06 June 2016 1:00

A full-coverage apron is a true vintage classic. The longer skirt and over-the-head bib are serious about keeping you clean top to bottom. Our version is completely reversible  even the ties are double-sided. But what makes it extra irresistible is the Meow or Never fabric, the latest from Moda designer, Erin Michael. This collection was unveiled just last month at Spring Quilt Market and will be appearing at retailers this Fall. We were thrilled to be given some preliminary cuts to come up with a bit of pre-release inspiration.

Sew4Home Featured in Where Women Cook

Friday, 03 June 2016 1:00

We are thrilled and pretty dang proud to be featured in the Handmade for the Home Kitchen column of the Summer 2016 issue of Where Women Cook! Yes, you read that correctly: Cook. Not necessarily what you’re used to seeing here at the site, right?! But this beautiful magazine is a sister publication from our dear friend, Jo Packham, whom we met when we were one of the studios lucky enough to be profiled a few years back in Where Women Create. Jo reached out to us for this new column, and we were happy to jump at the opportunity. It’s her brainstorm (and a dandy one at that) to expose “foodies,” who love all the DIY aspects of creative meal preparation, to how much fun it can be to extend their creativity to sewing for the kitchen and the table. Maybe we can be “sewies”! 

Sewing and Craft Half Apron

Thursday, 02 June 2016 1:00

We've always been partial to half aprons. Their smaller size tends to make them inherently more adorable. But this little fella, with its pockets a’plenty, is as hardworking as it is cute. Tie it on, load it up with your favorite notions, and get ready to whip up your next project.

Aurifil Designer Thread Box Great Giveaway

Wednesday, 01 June 2016 1:00

THIS GREAT GIVEAWAY CLOSED 06/17/16. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED. 

We are very excited to have Aurifil Thread as a new Sew4Home sponsor. It’s been great to learn more about all their available thread weight options and to drool over the hundreds of colors. Today, we’re sharing the love with you, offering up two Aurifil Designer Thread Boxes for two lucky Sew4Home visitors. Each box contains 12 large spools and has a retail value of over $100. If unspooled end-to-end, that means we’re giving away nearly a mile and a half of beautiful thread! (No... we did not really unwind 24 spools of thread – that’s what math conversion apps are for!)

Car Caddy: Front or Back Seat Auto Organization

Tuesday, 31 May 2016 1:00

ROOOOOAAAAADDDDD TRIIIIPPPPP! It's the perfect time to load up your family and friends and hit the open road. But first you have some stuff (aka crap) you need to organize for the trip: tunes, cell phone, scribbled notes, tickets, pens, snacks, your wallet, etc., etc., etc. If you skip this important organizational step, here's what will happen: You are driving, keeping your eyes on the road (of course), and you reach out to grab something from the pile of stuff (crap), but can't quite reach it/find it without rear-ending the truck in front of you. Instead... the needed item falls off the seat, lodging somewhere between the seat and the door. Feel free to jump in here and repeat the words you shout in your car. Our spiffy car caddy is designed to organize your stuff (crap), improve your driving safety, and look cute as can be all at the same time. It straps around the seat's headrest, so you can attach it to the front or the back. Hanging off the back, you can fill it up with little games and snacks to keep the kids occupied, cutting down the "Are we there yet??" requests to a minimum.

This is the time of year when we love putting together clever containers to help make dining outside in the warmer weather a bit easier… and prettier. These super cute basket liners are from our You Asked 4 It list. This is an official little list we keep of all the suggestions and requests you send in through your comments and emails. We knew this would be a perfect project to showcase the huge variety of fresh and colorful quilting cottons available right now at Fabric Depot.
