Fun Sewing Facts
Thimbles were worn on fingers or thumbs, hence the Old English name "thymel," or "thumb stall."
The first thimbles were conical and fashioned from leather. Later, simple bands that left the fingertip exposed were also made — examples of these have been found in the Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.
The English were making dome-shaped thimbles from the early 1500s.
Did you Know?
We still have some of our cloth baby books in stock! These are great gifts for the grandbabies, either as a present or a "just because" gift. Plus they are SUPER easy to make, if you can sew a straight line around a rectangle you can make a cloth book, we promise, which makes this a GREAT sewing project for your little sewers.
|We have quite a few of these books left, and they are all buy one get one free in-store right now! We've even got a few packages of the crinkle material left as well, to give babies an auditory sensory experience while you read to them. |
We also have our collapsible fans back! These are great for this hot weather coming up. They collapse down fast and easily with a simple twist, and are small enough to be stored in a purse or even a pocket! They are extremely handy to have on you. Take them to the beach, while gardening, picnics, amusement parks, anywhere you could get hot!
|We have two designs available.|
Stop by and pick yours up today, while supplies last!
If you are in the Masterpiece BOM
these are the wide backs we have available for your BOM. They are 118" wide, so you will need about 3.5 yards of which ever you choose. Because this BOM finishes as a 108" square, traditional 108" wide back fabrics will not be wide enough to back this. If you want to piece your back, you will need 10 yards of 44" wide yardage. This fabric is first come first serve, so let us know which you would like.

Our newest sample maker, Anita, worked really hard on this sample! It's her very first quilt, and isn't it just GORGEOUS?
If you're a fan of teals you have to come and take a look at the sample in person. As always, pictures do not do the fabric justice.
Still in stock:
