The Sewing Community Gives Back!

      Despite many differences of political opinions, let's use the American presidential inauguration week as an excuse for us as individuals and as a sewing community to make the statement that, no matter what our political beliefs, we care about each other and we care about our world.

A Fuzzy, Hairy, Cozy Wool Jenna Cardigan!

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you are all having a nice zen prelude to the holidays.
