I’ve had busy hands and I’m so thankful for all these little hand stitches!
A few months ago I previewed the new lines shipping to quilt stores this March from the designers at Ruby Star Society. I was immediately drawn to Rashida Coleman-Hale’s line called “Stellar”. It is full of happy, space-related prints done with a whimsical twist. And bits of gold! I was inspired to create a quilt pattern for it almost immediately.READ MORE
The Wise Craft Handmade shop is officially on hiatus for the holiday season. As always, any PDF pattern orders and other files will still go through as always. Any physical orders placed between now and the 29th will ship on the 30th. As always, Thank you all so very much for making 2019 a truly joyous year of sewing and quilting with me. I appreciate you all! And Happy Holidays!
Thank you to everyone who snatched up a pincushion from my shop on Monday. There are just a few cuties left! Someone who purchased one called them the perfect gift for the “has everything” friend and I couldn’t agree more. I am so appreciative of your support of this small business of mine.
As a thank you, with every order shipped from my shop from now until the last day for holiday shipping- 12/17/19– I will include a canvas Wise Craft Logo Tote bag with your shipment. (This includes the batch of pincushions I just shipped out this morning.)
Designed and printed by yours truly, using an old school heat press machine my friend found on eBay. The same sort of machine I used at my first part time job in high school. Use it as a thank you from me. Carry your projects to grandmother’s house, or just over to the chair in front of the fireplace.
I have been diligently working on a brand new collection of Found and Foraged Pincushions that will be hitting my shop in a couple of weeks. Many folks were sad to have missed out on the previous groups, so ceramic artist Kristen Ballou and I worked to make as many as possible available for this next collection. Keep reading if you want to know how to snag one of these beauties.READ MORE
Oh my! Handstitching, how I’ve missed you!
The early part of 2019 was spent being sick, Konmari’ing, and finishing up deadlines in between. I just didn’t have energy in the evenings to do any stitching at all. Once bigger projects were done, I was really happy to be able to settle into some new handwork and finish off a batch of Wise Craft Found and Foraged Pincushions.
