Fall-ing for Autumn Fabrics and Patterns

21 Oct

Now that Autumn is here, we’re excited to work on some cooler-weather sewing projects. Luckily we have some great fabrics and patterns in store to help you work through your Fall wish list.

Cozy sweatshirts are a perfect top for this time of year– great for layering over tanks and shirts and can easily be carried with you while you’re on the go.  The Sewaholic Fraser, the Ondée from Deer and Doe, as well as the Grainline Linden all make fantastic sweaters for a crisp day outside. We have some super soft heavier knit in grey and blue that would suit any of these patterns nicely. Also in stock we’ve got some fun sweatshirt knit in cream that reminds us of funfetti cake.


A nice, fitted pair of jeans will do well in Vancouver this time of year, and Deer and Doe have just released their Safran pants pattern that fits the bill perfectly. Pair that with the dark denim we have new in stock and you’re well on your way to creating your perfect pair of skinny jeans!


Finally, a few soft chambray shirts are a wonderful staple in any closet. Our double gauze chambray is not only baby soft, but does a wonderful job of keeping you warm and comfortable. The Colette Violet, Sewaholic Granville, or Grainline Archer are all great prospects to become the perfect chambray shirt for your wardrobe.


With so many great patterns and fabrics in store, it’s hard to choose our favourite Autumn combination. Stop in today an let us help you pick out a cute Autumn combination for your next sewing project!

Exclusive Home + Design Show Class

23 Sep

We’re taking the show on the road this October for a one-day sewing class that we won’t offer anywhere else.

Processed with Snapseed.

The Comfy Couch Cushion with Buttons class will be hosted at the Vancouver Home + Design Show on Saturday, October 29th. For $35 you’ll get to make a one of a kind couch cushion that you can make and take home the same day. Best of all admission to the show is complimentary with purchase ($16 value) so you’ll also get to browse all the exciting exhibitors at the Convention Centre.


Pillows will consist of one print and one solid fabric with two covered buttons on each side of the pillow. A simple class that delivers a beautiful result. You’ll have the skills after class to whip up a whole couch full of these beauties! Great for gifts or for your own home we’ll teach you the skills to make your own creation.

We’ve created this class to be a manageable two-hour course especially for the show, so if this looks like the class for you don’t hesitate! Call the store at 604-879-3031 to register or view our classes page for more details.
