Benny Loses His Blanket: A Snuggly Story Tradition for the Holidays

Friday, 22 December 2017 1:00

As we roll into the final days before Christmas, we’re taking a moment to step away from our sewing machines to bring you something a little different – something we hope might become a new tradition for the holidays. We wrote a little story and designed a pretty book to go along with the adorable illustrations from Lil' Rascals by Chole's Closet – a 2011 fabric collection from Moda that we used a number of years back for a Storybook Bedroom project series (project links below). We offer the book below as a free download. Reading with the children in your life is one of the very best experiences you can give them… and yourself! We hope you enjoy sharing the adventures of Lil' Benny, who loses his blanket but finds some very special friends.

Quilt Market 2017 Recap: We Came, We Saw, We Wore Out a Pair of Shoes

Thursday, 02 November 2017 1:00

Every year, when the end of October rolls around and pumpkin spice is in the air everywhere, those of us in the sewing and quilting industry are in full-throttle QMM: Quilt Market Mode. It’s the biggest show of the year, and although there is a Festival component that is open to the public, it’s Quilt Market, the trade-only side of the coin, where the true wonders lie. Between hugging sewing friends we only get to see once a year, gasping at the beauty of the newest fabric collections, and trekking from booth to booth…. to booth, we managed to capture and bring back some sneak peek images just for you. As always, they’ll be even more treats to come as we unveil new sponsors, new projects, and new plans to keep Sew4Home clever, creative, and cutting edge.

Happy Labor Day from Sew4Home

Monday, 04 September 2017 1:00

It’s that usually very exciting and fun last-official-weekend-of-summer. But this year, we’ve found it hard to be in a full celebratory mood. Instead, we find ourselves concentrating on all the work that needs to be done to help the people devastated by Hurricane Harvey in Houston and the surrounding areas. The flood waters have begun to recede, but now the real work begins. We’ve searched through the news online and have come up with a short list of organizations who could use our help… your help… everyone’s help. #HoustonStrong.
