Product Feature: Cross-Body Bags

I'm not usually a cross-body bag person. I don't think I've used one since high school. The last couple years I've been using one of our giant totes as my go-to bag, and it's been pretty great. I mean they're huge! The amount of stuff they can hold is pretty impressive. Then last week I had to run an errand and I wanted something a little smaller to carry than the tote. So, I grabbed the zebra cross-body bag to give it a good test run. I've been eyeing this bag since it came off the sewing machine, the fabric...

Fall Harvest Festival

Sale Alert

Fall Harvest Festival

I can usually be found in Williamstown Ontario at this time of year at one of my favourite craft fairs. Meeting all our wonderful customers, hanging out with other vendors, out in the crisp fall air... I love it!  This year, like everything else in 2020, is going to be different. Although this event has been cancelled, I'm moving the party online as it were. All our normal in-person vendor promotions will move online, and with it some new fall products! So treat yourself to a new scarf or bag - you totally deserve it with the year we've had...

Sweary Fabrics

Fabric Finds Product Launch

Sweary Fabrics

Let me tell you, there was a lot of debate over whether or not to order this fabric. I told friends about it who said to order it, "I neeeeed this in my life!" But I hesitated. Although I thought it was absolutely hilarious, I worried it would offend. After 6 months (I kid you not) of going back and forth on it, I did it. I ordered the fabric. When it arrived I thought I might use it for coin purses, maybe a zipped pouch or two. After a couple days I thought I should post a picture to Facebook...

What day is it again?

Product Launch Shop Local Studio Update

What day is it again?

How's everyone doing these days? I think we're going a little stir crazy over here. Between homeschooling our daughter, trying to get the gardens going, and all the business tasks on my plate I feel like I'm working harder now that we're all at home! Studio Update I have a confession. I'm a HUGE procrastinator. The more I have to do, the more I can find to distract myself. The latest distraction: my studio. I have a love-hate relationship with my studio. I love that it's in our basement - I can sew anytime I want and I'm not too...

COVID-19 Update

New Product Product Launch

COVID-19 Update

My how times have changed since my last post! We're all practicing social distancing over here. The college I work at during the school year has been closed since mid-March and we're all home together, homeschooling, keeping an eye on the news, and spending lots of time tackling projects around the house and gardens.  Non-Medical Face Masks I have given a lot of thought to how we can contribute as a small business, while making sure we survive past the end of the current pandemic. I have decided to dedicate 85% of my fabric inventory to the making of non-medical masks. These will be...
