Spring has sprung in the Midwest!
May 20, 2014
Finally, we are able to enjoy the warmth and beauty of spring weather! Daffodils and tulips are in bloom, perennials are growing, and trees are sprouting new life … how refreshing.
With spring also comes “new life” in the form of Spring International Quilt Market, and we at Stichin’ Sisters are excited to introduce four of our latest patterns that will be available at the market: Classy & Sassy, There’s a Pocket for That, The Keeper, and Oh Sew Simple (see our catalog).
Heather, my dear daughter-in-law, designed her very first pattern – Classy & Sassy – and the name says it all! It is a sassy purse by style with a classy teardrop pocket for easy access. And, for extra ease of use, it includes our newly featured clear vinyl zipper pocket on the inside. Now when you look inside your purse, you can see exactly what is in your pocket!
Rosemary and I designed the remaining three patterns. The first is There’s a Pocket for That – a messenger-type bag featuring ten pockets, two of which have zippers. We then have The Keeper – a “snappy” little bag in which to keep cords, chargers, binding clips, and oh so much more. (These bags would make a cute, quick gift!) The final pattern is called Oh Sew Simple, a quick, simple, vinyl-screen tote with elastic on the inside to hold water or juice bottles. There are no side seams in this tote which makes for a larger side pocket – also a great place to hold bottles and more. As a bonus, after cutting out the tote you can use the vinyl screen extras to create two coordinating project bags. This bag would also make a wonderful gift as it is certainly multipurpose!
Look for all of our new patterns at your local quilt shop, or order from our online catalog.
We sincerely hope you are enjoying your spring and that, between the hustle and bustle of planting, graduations, weddings, etc., you are able to take time out for yourself – perhaps stitching up a new project. Enjoy, and happy spring!
