This is the home of The Pop Top Jacket, the best-fitting blank canvas for creative garment sewing. With only three pattern pieces and no darts, this wonderful semi-fitted, figure-flattering jacket works for all sizes, from XS to XXL. With endless variations, it's easy to see why this timeless design is our most popular pattern. We also offer original patterns for sweatshirts, bags, wall hangings and bargello. We're always thinking up new designs that are fun to sew and fabulous to wear...so check back often!
If you've been wondering why no "new" news has been posted for a while, consider that we hit the year running with the Mancuso show in Orlando, FL, the first week of the new year and haven't stopped running until now! We did shows in North Carolina, Daytona Beach, FL, Charleston, SC and Lakeland, FL and now we're getting ready and frantically sewing and cutting kits for the spring AQS show in Paducah, KY in late April.
As in past years, we'll be taking a couple of summer months off to enjoy the beach and come up with some new designs. Then it's back to the show circuit for the Old Man River Quilt Fest in Vicksburg, MS the third week in August where we'll be teaching several classes and also having a booth, followed by AQS Chattanooga, TN in September, Fredricksburg, VA in early October and Quilt Market and Festival in Houston, TX in late October and early November.
We'll be in the Designer's Workshop Booth. When we're not busy serving customers we'll show you how to get a perfect fit with The Pop Top Jacket! We'll have all sizes of muslins available for you to try on so you'll know exactly which size to choose for your next fabulous jacket project! Other things you may not have seen include new tote bags, new colors for jackets and several beautiful new flower wallhangings by Eileen Sullivan. Eileen is also chopping up her vintage fabric stash to make more room in her studio. She'll have bundles of goodies at great prices. Don't miss it!
