Moda Designer Spotlight: Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique

Wednesday, 11 May 2016 1:00

We first met Vanessa at the 2015 Fall Quilt Market in Houston, Texas where she was introducing her latest fabric collection for Moda Fabrics. She's a talented quilt maker, fabric designer, and somehow balances it all with being Mom to two young kids. Her fabrics have a fresh, upbeat feeling that make you want to shut yourself in your sewing room and create, create, create. In fact, her recently released Little Miss Sunshine collection inspired us to do just that. We created our own super cute Diamond Girl Apron

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts: Make Them in an Afternoon

Wednesday, 04 May 2016 1:00

I believe one of the top jobs of any mom is helping her kids avoid “the last minute.” Remember those gentle reminders to start things early, which gradually turned less gentle, the closer the deadline loomed? She tried to warn us, but did we listen? Usually not; probably because the panicked screaming coming out of our mouths the night before the Science Fair was drowning out her suggestions. This Sunday is Mother’s Day, but there’s still time to make something special. We’ve collected five Sew4Home classic projects you can easily finish in an afternoon, using fabric you likely have on hand. You can tell her you’ve been planning for weeks… and she’ll pretend to believe you.

Easy Street Great Giveaway for Tax Day 2016

THIS GREAT GIVEAWAY CLOSED 04/30/16. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED.

We’re softening the blow of Tax Day 2016 with a special Easy Street Great Giveaway. We’ve stuffed two “bank bags” with generous cuts of two-dozen beautiful fabrics. If you’re a sewing and craft enthusiast, you know that’s almost as good as a bag of cash! They probably won’t let you use it for groceries or a tank of gas, but then you wouldn’t let it out of your sewing space anyway, would you?

S4H Sewing Escape Retreats: New Locations Open for Registration. Lets Go Sew!

Friday, 25 March 2016 1:00

Early last year we had this crazy idea for a sewing event. We'd invite some Sew4Home friends to meet up in person at a series of mini sewing retreats around the country. We'd learn to sew some cool projects, get to know each other, and have a lot of fun. The more we thought about it, the more it seemed like a great idea.

Quilt Market 2015: Three Days of Overwhelming

Monday, 02 November 2015 1:00

O-ver-whelm-ing / adjective / to have a strong emotional effect. See also: dumbfounded, bowled over, left speechless. We've been to Quilt Markets in the past, but mostly the Spring Market that moves around the country to various venues. It had been quite a number of years since we'd been able to attend the big dog: the International Quilt Market, which takes place each October in Houston, Texas. We got to preview the latest fabric collections, try new products, reconnect with old friends, and meet new creative powerhouses. We've put together a quick tour-in-pictures of some highlights from our Three Days of O-ver-whelm-ing.
