Let’s all raise a New Year’s Eve glass to our Top 9 Projects of 2019! It’s always hard to limit the number of articles to highlight each year, but even as an entire decade hovers in the rear view mirror, we know you’re unlikely to be interested in a Top 100 list to wade through. Instead, we’ve compiled a mini list to jog your memory and invite some new inspiration for a project you might have missed the first time around.
THIS GREAT GIVEAWAY CLOSED 01/10/2020. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED.
We can’t imagine a better holiday present than all of you! So we’ve put together a little something to say, “Thanks for being the very best followers and friends.” This adorable box holds a few of our favorite things: fabric pre-cuts, thread spools, handy tools, and excellent notions – a little bit of everything to brighten up your sewing space for 2020… a new decade of sewing fun!
We get asked a lot about our “favorite things.” Many of you are interested in what we choose and use on our projects, and we’re always happy to share. The most common questions are about sewing machines – probably because a machine is likely to be the most expensive item in your sewing space. However, it’s also likely to be the most confusing thing to shop for since there are so many options. If you’re a S4H regular, you know we’re a Janome Exclusive Studio. Recently, we noticed two things about Janome that you might have missed: they updated their slogan, and they got a very cool award. Both occurrences caught our attention because they underscore why we’ve always been so grateful to sew with what we feel is the best brand in the industry. Read on to find out why.
Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Sew4Home! It’s a glorious day for family, friends, and food. But if you’re searching for an excuse to sneak out of the room before Uncle Tony starts into his annual holiday re-cap of the new traffic cones he’s added to his already burgeoning collection, why not browse for a bit on Sew4Home? We’ve compiled a few things that raise our “attitude of gratitude” here in the world of sewing and craft. Read on, and leave us a comment about what you’re thankful for!
Who loves pillows? We love pillows! Actually, we think it’s safe to say that everyone loves pillows. How could you not? They’re soft and pretty, and their flat surface is the perfect foundation for design. The lovely and creative, Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts has taken that pillow top design to a wonderful new level in Pillow Talk, her latest book with It’s Sew Emma. Read on to take a look inside at the 25 eye-popping pillows and discover the 25 companion Pillow Talk fabric kits available starting this month at Fat Quarter Shop.
