August Sponsor Round-Up

Summer is slipping by! I can't believe we're well into August already. We're so happy to welcome back 4 wonderful sponsors this month. Each of these small businesses is woman-owned and offers amazing sewing and crafting goodness. We hope you'll check them out!

Here's what's new with our sponsors for August:

felt on the fly
It's always such a treat to visit Janet's store Felt On The Fly which she stocks with beautiful "Color Stories". These small bundles are composed of various colors of 100% merino wool felt, inspired by a theme. Some of our current favorites include the bright and summery Fruit Salad and the nostalgic Sweet Treats (perfect for Halloween!). And oh my goodness, check out the amazing Wool Felt Mash-Up featuring a rainbow of heathered felt -- want!

This felt is truly incredible and such a treat to craft with!

Drygoods Design Online

August is a big month for fabric over at Drygoods Design! Keli has already received new apparel fabrics and paper goods from Rifle Paper Co., plus the latest from Cloud9, Free Spirit and Andover. Later this month brings Bella (the new collection from Lotta Jansdotter, can't wait!), Liberty Lifestyle, Geocentric (Cloud9's first home dec weight fabric), Field Study by Anna Maria Horner, Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt and plenty more!

For locals who can visit the brick-and-mortar store: Drygoods Design is welcoming the Seattle, Portland and Vancouver BC Modern Quilt Guilds this Sunday and will be open until 9 p.m. on August 11th for Ballard Art Walk!

fat quarter shop

The gals over at Fat Quarter Shop have been hard at work designing patterns and compiling quilt kits. Design manager Jocelyn Ueng’s Garden View pattern and kit was featured in the September/October 2012 issue of McCall’s Quilting Magazine! You can find Fat Quarter Shop's entire selection of quilt kits here.

How fun is this Riley Blake Chevron fat quarter bundle? How about the Candy Dish pillow pattern by Jaybird Quilts? I seriously don't need anymore fabric, but eeeee, Indie by Pat Bravo is so fabulous! There is SO much stuff in the What's New section.

Don't forget to check Fat Quarter Shop's Facebook and Twitter feeds every Wednesday for their Wednesday Special, a different discount every week!

Last but not least, our friend Karen over at Sew Well Maide has been working hard on two new patterns that will be released later this month: the Multi-Purpose Carry All Bag (will feature Fresh Cut by Heather Bailey) and a new Lap Quilt (similar to her previously made Little Red Quilt but will feature fabrics by Lotta Jansdotter!!). I might need to make that tote bag for myself...

This is one talented lady. I can't wait to see the patterns!

    1. Ooh have fun! Tell Keli I said hi and good luck not spending a fortune on far too many bee-oo-tiful fabrics!

  2. Thanks Jenny. Now I just have to do as I said I would!! Darn - why can't some creative person out there create more time!! Cheers, Karen.


Thank you so much for writing a comment! While the format of Stumbles & Stitches is an exchange between two friends, we love to engage with our readers and expand the conversation in the comments.

We usually respond to your questions here, unless it seems more appropriate to send you an email. So please check back!
