Three new color combinations of 10” x 10” fabric squares. Each package contains 40 squares. All the new patterns for these pre-cuts are an exciting twist on your quilting options. The three colors are brights, springtime colors and one named pink lemonade. Also, a new package of 40, 2 1/2” strips in red, white and blue!
Due any day is a new yarn made of acrylic, mohair and pre-strung with beads and sequins. On the wrapper is a FREE pattern for a simple knit stitch shawlette. Available in 8 different colors, it is a perfect addition to your spring or cool summer nights wardrobe!
Just in time for everyone coming for the annual Spring Fling this weekend at the Whitefish Bird Observatory; a beautiful new fabric collection of backyard birds. These are very realistic prints from one of our favorite fabric companies because their fabrics are so lifelike.
The very popular Turning Twenty series of books has added new titles and two brand new rulers to go with the books. With the right size ruler, cutting is a breeze.
Boxes and boxes of new fabrics are here in both regular cottons and flannels! No matter what the season, there are new fabrics for every project you have in mind. Poppies; beautiful poppies on a border stripe, allover prints and coordinates. Songbirds, red-headed woodpeckers, birdhouses and a nice pine cone print welcome spring. Whimsical bugs and sheep on flannels for kids young and old and a large flannel group of fabrics with a folk art theme in rich, warm colors. Looking far forward on the calendar; there are new Halloween prints (some glow in the dark) absolutely gorgeous fall prints and stripes and even some new Christmas prints.
The pansy quilt top is done! It is a stunning 90” x 110” quilt in creams, purples and a bit of green. Wait until you see it; it is guaranteed love at first sight. We have kits cut and ready for you!
Do you crochet and love the look of knitting? Now you can have both with Knook! Use the special Knook crochet hook to create knitted stitches. It's an ingenious method. The market is exploding with new books and patterns. It's not hard, anyone can easily learn it and the books include instructions for both left hand and right hand methods.
Tunisian crochet is yet another variation of crochet that creates wonderful texture. The garments are stunning, not too heavy and hold their shape beautifully. There are so many great books and patterns for this method, too! It is a very exciting time for crocheters!
Another new knitting book for casting on and binding off arrived this past week. It contains different methods than in the book we told you about in the previous All Threads Enews. This one is spiral bound, great size to tuck into your knitting bag, full of good pictures and well indexed with categories like “stretchy, decorative, multicolor, double sided” and more. We love the choices to make our knitted edges just right. Who knew we had so many options!
Light colored batiks, especially for backgrounds have been hard to find – not any more! We have many new light batiks with hints of color in swirls and dots, leaves, geometrics, a small floral and pine branches.
The entire barnyard is featured on this allover print for the kids. The colors have a nice springtime look. On separate bolts are cows, pigs and sheep; some with a gingham style check. We also have perfectly matched coordinates in a nice texture design. This is the best collection of its kind that we have seen in a long time!
Aren't the felted wools great! New color assortments of 5” squares in browns, blues and springtime colors as well as larger pieces (9” x 10”) of colors that definitely make you think of the flowers of spring soon to come. Use them for applique on your cotton pieced items. The texture adds terrific dimension and because the wool is felted; no raw, raggy edges!
Plan now for sunny days of summer with these new hat patterns. There is a simple sunbonnet for the kids, a reversible sun hat for the adults and one for boys and girls in sizes from tiny to adult XXL. The brims are just right to protect your face and eyes without being too big and floppy.
You have got to try the new Frixion pens for marking your fabrics. They come in 6 different colors, are refillable and Vicki used one to mark the half square triangles for the pansy quilt (kit available soon) and absolutely loves them. The line is nice and fine for accuracy, is still very visible and disappears when ironed.
There is nothing like hand painted sock yarns. Ten new colors have arrived and they are as soft as can be made of merino wool and merino wool/bamboo. The colors range from beautiful spring pastels to a rich “woodsy” color combination. One skein will make a pair of socks or a lovely shawlette from the new book sock yarn shawls.
An exciting new collection of crochet books including patterns for baby blankets, hats, booties and gifts as well as a book full of adult crocheted accessories. These are excellent “carry along” projects. Pack your crochet bag for on the go crocheting that spring and summer activities bring.
The crisp white background makes the bright colors of flowers,swirls and dots just pop on these new fabrics. Combine them with rich tone on tone prints for sewing/quilting projects flooded in beautiful colors.
Butterflies are a sure sign of spring and summer. These bold butterflies are printed on a black background with just a touch of metallic gold. The coordinates also have just a hint of gold for a stunning group. A new summer tote or purse immediately comes to mind!
In addition, we received several new bolts of batiks, a beautiful selvedge to selvedge woods scene and flannels printed with penguins and snowflakes.
Some things are timeless and this includes the looms to make potholders. Kids still love these! As you have requested, we have found a metal loom! Keep these in mind for the Easter Baskets!
Speaking of baskets; Clover's newest extra large basket frames are here! Choose from round, oval or square. These will be extra special keepsake baskets for the Easter treats.
Also from Clover the new extra small Kanzashi flower makers have arrived. These tiny blossoms are perfect for the little ones, stack them with the larger flowers or make a complete bouquet of all the sizes. There are five styles from which to choose.
Looking to summer and camping, be sure to pick up your copy of the new cookbook “Campfire Treats”. From tasty fruits to hearty sandwiches to gooey desserts, it is a must have for camping fun.
You love Wonder Clips and there is more to love in Jumbo Wonder Clips. A little larger for thicker fabrics where extra holding power is needed.
We always said socks yarns are great for so much more than socks. This new book of shawls made with sock yarns is a real delight. There are fifteen different patterns from small scarf sizes to shawlettes to larger shawls. There is a nice blend of patterns with lace edges to beautiful and airy allover lace designs.
What kind of an edge would you like on your knitted items? This new book dedicated to 211 different ways to cast on and bind off will answer all of your questions. From decorative to invisible and firm to stretchy, the right edge can make or break your knitted project. So many patterns simply say cast on or bind off. This book will help you make the best educated choice. It is an absolute must have in your knitting reference library.
Those of you with Featherweight sewing machines know the difficulty in removing the needle plate without the right tool. We have found stubby little screwdrivers that are just what you need to easily and safely remove the screws that hold the needle plate in place. The best part is that their small size will fit in your notions box.
