Pre-cut bundles are great time and money savers, and the perfect way to play with all the pretty pieces from your favorite quilting cotton collections. If you're new to these specialty cuts, check out our Lesson in Pre-Cut Bundles, which we wrote with the help of the experts at Fat Quarter Shop. We were delighted to recently learn that Kimberly Jolly, the fearless leader at Fat Quarter Shop, has been honored by Moda for her experience in and support of the quilting world with her very own pre-cut bundle: Jolly Bars™. These are 5" x 10" rectangles, which are a perfect size to stack, tile and angle into diamond patterns. There are 42 Jolly Bars™ in a bundle. Fat Quarter Shop has launched four collections with eight more to follow very soon. Read on for more information, including how you can win your own Jolly Bars™ bundle.
Normally our Great Giveaways concentrate on the fabric, notions and tools you need to make your own fabulous home décor. Today, there's no heavy lifting involved with our Waverly World Great Giveaway. We have an amazing collection of Waverly branded retail items, ready to beautify your home right from the shipping box. Our Sew4Home projects with Waverly focus on their amazing signature fabrics, but they are much more than a fabric company. You can find their distinctive look on kitchen and bath items, window and wall coverings, tech accessories, luggage, furniture, and lots more. They've provided us with a very generous gift pack of these very things for one lucky Sew4Home visitor.

September is a month of fresh starts. Students are back in school, taking on the challenges of the next grade. Everybody at the office is back to work from all those end-of-summer vacations. And it's National Sewing Month; the time of year when all of us who sew are encouraged to teach someone new. If you can sew even at an intermediate level, you possess a unique skill. It means when you see something cool in a store, online or in a catalog, you have the ability to find fabric and make it yourself. There are a lot of people who wish they could do that! In fact, you probably know half a dozen who would be thrilled if you offered to teach them the basics. We're even willing to bribe you with a basket of sewing goodies for one lucky winner.
Decorative stitches are tiny pieces of thread art. Sometimes when I look at them, I can't believe a single threaded needle made such an intricate design. But even though I love them, I often forget to use them. We get so caught up in the seams of a project's construction, decorative stitches can get overlooked. We wanted a way to keep some of our favorite stitches top-of-mind, so we did a little decorative stitch sampler then framed it as sewing room artwork. Super fast, super simple, and the prefect colorful reminder.

Perhaps you were too bored to notice, but July is National Anti-Boredom Month. Of course truly creative people never get bored... right? Either that or we are very creative in our excuses for why we might be momentarily distracted at school, at work, on the weekend, even in the middle of the night when we can’t sleep. In the fight against lethargy, Sew4Home offers you an Anti-Boredom Great Giveaway. We have a wonderful book by Tula Pink plus some very interesting fabric pre-cuts: the perfect pair to turn idleness into inspiration.

Our trendy Metro Bag debuted last fall, just in time for back-to-school. Originally created with "guy-friendly" color and design, our friends at Renaissance Ribbons changed things up a bit to create a more feminine feel. What's cool is how they stayed within the same fabric and ribbon collection, proving you don't have to go far to create an original spin.

Janome's line of colorful compact machines are so cute, you might think they're toys. But they're not. They're real sewing machines, with real machine features, just in a much smaller (and more adorable) size and in vibrant colors. This makes them the perfect gift for someone just learning to sew, a person who does very basic mending and sewing projects, folks with limited space, or someone who just wants a super lightweight machine to take on the road. We have two ways to win a colorful little sewing machine of your very own to kick off your Summer Sewing Fun.
Father, Daddy, Pop, Pa, the old man... he goes by many names and may have come to you by birth, adoption, marriage or simply friendship. Whatever the circumstances, the underlying sentiment is the same: this is the guy who has always been there for you with unconditional love, a ride across town on a stormy night, and a quick five bucks for a cheeseburger. His special day is coming up on June 15th, and we've collected ten classic projects we know will be right up his alley. Some are super-fast ScrapBuster projects, others a bit more involved – a full range of options to bring a smile to every dear ol' Dad.
