Sleeping Porch from Heather Ross

Sleeping Porch Heather Ross
SP Lookbook 01

See the Sleeping Porch Lookbook for lots of sewing inspiration!

Heather Ross returns with Sleeping Porch, printed entirely on cotton lawn. Heather’s signature style of whimsical illustrations will delight all ages, for while her collections are often designed with kids in mind, they also pull on the heart strings of the kid at heart. The collection is a harmoious balance of bold blooms and tiny garden critters, with a variety of negative space that will delight quilters and apparel sewers alike. We have yardage, bundles and Quilt Kits, and be sure to check out Windham's Lookbook for lots of sewing inspiration!

If you pre-ordered this collection, we are happy to say all pre-orders have shipped! Sorry for the delay, the solid Jade print was late in arriving to Windham, so orders containing that print were on hold.

Friedlander from Carolyn Friedlander

Carolyn and Lindsay at Quilt Market

Here at Hawthorne Threads, we look forward to each collection from Carolyn Friedlander whose collections are always personal yet utterly approachable. Friedlander tells the story of her grandfather whose namesake and legacy has shaped her own life, much like the myriad boughs on a tree that tend to make their way into Carolyn's work. We always enjoy seeing how everyone adds to the story by interpreting the fabrics into handmade pieces. For as Carolyn reminds us, "it’s about all of us shaping the world around us and leaving our own marks in whatever way that may be." We have Quilting Cottons, Lawn and Pre-Cuts, and check out several new Quilt Patterns from Carolyn!

Pattern Hack: A Curvy Bruyere Shirt (Hacked via Lenox Dress)

When it was released a few years ago, the Deer & Doe Bruyere shirt pattern felt like a breath of fresh air. At the time, the relaxed-fit Grainline Archer was everywhere, and the Bruyere offered some unique details for a button-down shirt: a fitted bodice, a waistband, and general fit-and-flare shape. I instantly fell in…

· Sewing Pattern Buddy app ·

Happy Monday, everyone! 🙂  I was approached by Megan of Kwirky Kiwi about trying out her app for organizing sewing patterns and I loved it so much that I wanted to share this with all of you!
I don’t know about you, but I tend to amass patterns in batches and I’m quickly reaching the stage where I can’t remember every detail of every pattern I own…. I’m happy to report that the Sewing Pattern Buddy app is the end to my woes!  Megan has designed the app with so many opportunities to organize and categorize patterns according to your personal favorite method and I’ve been so impressed by how intuitive and easy it is to navigate. 🙂  This app is free for up to 25 patterns and is just $6.99 NZD (approx $4.99 USD) for unlimited storage!
Despite being a Millenial, I’m very decidedly *not* tech savvy, but I’m here to tell you- if you already have a smart phone, you’re tech-y enough to figure out how to utilize this resource too. 😉
The app has a wide range of customization already built in with different filters for Pattern Company/Number, Garment Type, Era/Year,  Personal Rating scale, Tags, Previous Makes, Pattern Completeness, and Pattern Type.  There is also space on each pattern listing for measurements, fabric requirements, personal notes, skill level, place/time acquired, purchase cost, printed/unprinted, condition, relevant website URL, location in your stash, and number of copies!
The categories come empty, all the better for using your own organization method.  I really love that I’m able to add specific design elements to the “tag” section.  Frequently I’ll be looking for a pattern that incorporates princess seams/long sleeves/collar/etc and having an easy filter to find them is so helpful!
After backing up the photos and info, the app is fully navigable without internet or data- which is huge for me since I’m on a no-data plan!  The images are clear and zoom-able, so if I need to see details from the envelope back I still have access to that information. The app takes up less space on my phone than any other app I’ve downloaded- I really haven’t found a negative to this app. 😉
This app really is all could ask for as a pattern database and I’m excited to keep adding to the database!  This probably settles me firmly in “nerd” category, but I’m not ashamed.  I love organization so much that the thought of spending this evening adding more patterns to my personal catalog adds a little spring to my step today, haha! 😉
· Disclaimer- I did receive the expanded app as a gift from Megan without the requirement for posting, and all opinions are my own! ·

McCalls 7125

About a year ago I attended Melbourne’s first restash event.  It’s a get-together where you take fabric, patterns, and any other sewing supplies that you no longer require, put them onto long tables, then take home things that other people have brought along!  I think that I came home with less than I took (which… Continue reading McCalls 7125
