Meet the Sponsors: nido

  Phiona, owner of Burlington, Vermont-based nido always closes her emails with “warmly,” and warmth perfectly encapsulates her shop. The brick-walled retail store and sewing hub just turned three years old (and had an enviable party!), and just visiting the online branch gives a sense of comfort, coziness, openness, and inspiration. She carries the finest modern fabrics [...]

Meet the Sponsors: Connecting Threads

{ Dancing Daisies from Montecito by Jenni Calo } I think I first learned of Connecting Threads a while back when I was knitting more than I was sewing. If you’re a knitter you certainly know Knitpicks, a company offering affordable, quality yarns and knitting supplies. Connecting Threads is actually Knitpicks’ sister company, under parent [...]

Meet the Sponsors/Giveaway: So Fun Fabrics

We’re finally back with our semi-regular Meet the Sponsors posts. Today I’d love to introduce you to Tisha Galloway of So Fun Fabrics. So Fun Fabrics is an Etsy shop with a small but quality selection of modern designer fabrics and boutique patterns. She also offers several irresistible fabric bundles. What caught my eye about [...]

Meet the Sponsors/Giveaway: Quilt Sandwich

Quilt Sandwich Fabrics is an Etsy-based shop quickly approaching its one-year anniversary. It’s owned and operated by Seattle-area sisters Kris and Becca — they also have another sister into sewing and quilting. (Imagine having not one but two stash enablers in your family!) Quilt Sandwich carries the usual Westminster, FreeSpirit, and Moda suspects, sure, but [...]

Meet the Sponsors/Giveaway: Quilted Treasures

Two of the many tempting fat quarter bundles found at the Quilted Treasures Etsy shop: Cosmo Cricket’s Hey Sugar (left) and for-some-reason-hard-to-find-as-precut-packs Kona Cotton Solids (right) I would love to see more brick & mortar shops doing things the way Quilted Treasures does: catering to all tastes with a wide and well-thought-out inventory, and maintaining [...]

Meet the Sponsors/Giveaway: Stitch Simple

With so much competition between fabric shops these days, it’s hard to stand out. Stitch Simple does it with a completely unique spin on the fabric shop concept: owner Jen Madsen offers prewashed, and (if you want) precut fabric and custom quilt kits (including the new Quilt Kit du Jour, which just launched yesterday). That’s [...]

Meet the Sponsors/Giveaway: marie-madeline studio

New True Up sponsor marie-madeline studio is a family affair: mom Kristie Long and four daughters Apphia, Achaia, Abigail, and Abiah all share their love of fabric and sewing and all run the business together. How cool is that? The Long ladies also design and sell their own extensive line of sewing patterns (bags, aprons, [...]

Meet the Sponsors/Giveaway: Fat Quarter Shop

Well it’s just turning out to be an Austin-themed day. I live ridiculously close to the Fat Quarter Shop‘s world HQ and have always been an fan of their well-designed online shop, though I’ve never met owner Kimberly Jolly face-to-face. And I probably won’t get to for a while, either, since she just gave birth [...]

Owner/founder Susan Lu has a background in textile design, and Karma Kraft’s services reflect that. Several factors set Karma Kraft apart from the competition: the variety of base cloths (various weights and [...]
