New Arrival: Colette Patterns “Aster” Blouse

ColettePattern-sm

Well, it’s here! And it’s time to get in on all the sewing fun. Today Colette Patterns launched a new blouse pattern, the Aster, and we have it here in the store! It will be on our website soon, but for now come to our 3rd floor to snag a copy. Along with this newest addition, we have a whole set of Colette patterns, and we just love them. Ranging in silhouettes and sizes, as well as some men’s wear, Colette Patterns is an excellent alternative to buying from large chain companies. Take a peek!

Britex Sponsors: National Make it with Wool

Every year, for the past few years, we have proudly sponsored the National Make it With Wool, a competition encouraging the joy and versatility of sewing with wool. Members are asked to create an entire outfit, for themselves, out of all wool (or 60% wool blends) using techniques such as sewing, knitting, and crocheting. Each competitor is entered into Regionals, and if chosen, will then move on to Nationals. This year the National competition was held in Reno, CA and produced the following winners.

Kris Puckrin – Junior Division (ages 13-16)
