Fabric Department: Today we are featuring The Home Decor Department on our Website and in the Store. Are you the kind of person who loves how things are trending in Home Design? Do you read the latest Home Design Magazines? Some of the hottest looks in Pillows, Curtains and Throws are Ikat, Woven Linens, and almost anything with the dyed Hombre color schematic. The look of cool tamped down shades of Blues and Greys with dashes of Greens and splashes of Red are showing up in home stores and magazines. A very interesting color palette, modern but with a nod to the past. Designers are also mixing old with new. A continuing trend is to find antique and interesting chairs and recover them with an interesting Ikat or rich Velvet. A two page article on Sofas in the current issue of House Beautiful tells the story best. Cover your couches in neutral colors, Greys, Blues, Browns and Taupes, then punch it up with some colorful and patterned Pillows. Are you a lover of some of the new Paisley's or Bold Florals? Wow, do we have some fun choices, click to see a collection on our Pinterest page. We also have bolts and bolts of heavy duty, wonderful textures and woven tone on tone patterns waiting for you to discover. A new look for your Sofa is only 10 yards away! Log onto or pop into the Store. You will not be disappointed, only delighted.

Happy Sewing!

Irons and the New Sewing Center...

Irons. Remember we asked you to weigh in the brand of Iron we should be carrying? 9 out of 10 of our customers who responded said the would like us to carry Rowenta Irons. But only if they were manufactured in Germany. You liked the big Steam and turn off feature and the fact that a Rowenta Iron that is made in Germany is the premiere Iron for that company. So we thought you would want to know that your opinion matters. Thanks for weighing in. We are also thinking of carrying Baby Lock Irons as well.
