Bookworm Sale

If you’re like me, then there is no such thing as too much fabric in your stash OR too many patterns/books in your library! When we opened the shop, we could have gotten by on just the books I already had .. that’s assuming I’d be willing to part with them, which of course I am not!

Here are a few of my favorites ….

Girls World Book Girl’s World by Jennifer Paganelli is simply stunning! So many gorgeous and girly dresses, accessories, and home decor projects. If there’s a girly girl in your world, this is a “must-have” for your library. Oh, and if you go to our Facebook Page, the ever-generous Ms. Paganelli is giving away something special to the first person to buy the book and show her the receipt.
 Another “must-have” if you sew for children is Oliver + S Little Things To Sew. A whole book full of fabulous Oliver + S patterns! So many projects to choose from. My favorites are the Little Red Riding Hood Cape for girls and the Explorer Vest for boys. So cute and not your typical patterns. She also has a simple, modern quilt that is definitely on my to-do list. Little Things to Sew
Sew Serendipity Sew Serendipity by Kay Whitt is definitely in my library. I think it was one of the first books I bought when I started sewing. So many great skirts, tunics, dresses and jackets. I’ve been dying to make the skirt that is pictured on the cover for so long! I think it would look amazing made from the Domestic Bliss collection. Hopefully we don’t run out before I have a chance to snag me some. I better get to it!
 There are several quilt books I could have chosen for my favorite but I chose this one, Block Party, because I so want to get a swap group together and make some of these quilts. Love the quilts, love the improvisational nature of them, love the scrappiness … absolutely love it all. If any of you are interested, let me know and we’ll see about getting a group together. Block Pary

Quite honestly I could have sat here the rest of the day and listed all the books in the shop and my reasons for loving them so but I’ve got more orders to get out!  I would love to know which books are your favorites … always looking to add to my stash! 😉

And don’t forget it’s not just the books that are on sale through Sunday … all of our patterns are on sale too! Even the new ModKid ones!

Hope you’re having a great Friday!
