Burning Man
Burning Man 2013 is fast approaching, and we're inviting all Burners to come check out our amazing yarns and fabrics for playa wardrobe potential! (Note: playa is pronounced "ply-ah".) We've got plenty of fun and funky yarns that can be used for hats, scarves, hair accessories and more. And of course, fabric!! You can't go wrong with prints from Jane Sassaman's new collection, Wild Child, or Kaffe Fassett's Millefiore collection. Go minimalist with the Zen Chic Comma collection, or get bohemian with the Boho collection from Urban Chiks.
Whether you create simple bandanas and neck scarves, or tackle slightly larger projects like Brett Bara's 1-Hour Skirt from her book, Sewing In A Straight Line, we've got plenty of fantastic fabric designs to get creating with! Kristen has already made two of Brett's 1-Hour Skirt, which is super simple to make. You can check out this awesome video to see just how easy it can be!
If you or your friends aren't able to stop by and visit us on the way to Burning Man, or you have a project in mind you want to start working on pronto, visit our Burning Man Page! It features all sorts of yarns and fabrics to help kindle inspiration of all kinds!

If you aren't familiar with Burning Man - in short, it is a week-long festival that takes place in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Thousands of people from all over the world gather to create Black Rock City, a unique community dedicated to art, self-expression, and self-reliance. Many of those people pass through our hometown of Reno on their way to and from Burning Man. You can learn more about this one-of-a-kind event at www.BurningMan.com!

      Adorable AdornIt Fabrics!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
There were hoots of joy in the shop when these adorable fabrics arrived, and we can't wait to share them with you! The talented ladies behind AdornIt fabrics started out designing papers and ribbons for scrapbooking, so many of their collections build on the same colors and themes -this makes for perfectly coordinated mix-and match prints. With such a wide range of designs, there is sure to be something for everyone. These quilting cotton collections from AdornIt have it all: From chevrons, dots, and damasks in their Basics collection, to owls galore in the Nested Owl Charcoal line, to beautiful vines and daisies in the Wildflower collection. Take a look and let these wonderful prints speak for themselves!
Everyone was excited to see these fabrics when they arrived (how could we not be?!), but Jenn in particular couldn't wait to get her hands on the Nested Owl Charcoal collection. She thought they'd be the perfect choice to make Elizabeth Hartman's free pattern for the Mod Mosaic Floor Pillow. Jenn featured the Owl Tickertape and Owls All Around prints and used coordinating semi-solids from AdornIt's Basics collection to add sparks of color. We think it's coming along great, Jenn!

Parson Gray Ribbon - New York
Parson Gray Ribbon - New York
$5.00/yd
Amazingly talented graphic designer David Butler introduces his first collection of ribbons from his brand, Parson Gray. These fabulous ribbons are based on designs from Parson Gray's fabric collections World Tour and Seven Wonders. We can't get enough of his folk modern print designs in richly muted palettes for a touch of minimalist sophistication. Available in a variety of widths, styles and prints, these ribbons make great embellishments for projects of all kinds! We love them as drawstrings for bags or buttonhole stabilizers for knitted sweaters.
One Yard Wonders
One Yard Wonders
$24.95
This book is a must-have in the collection of any sewist, particularly one who likes to make gifts that won't cost a ton or take forever! One Yard Wonders is a delightful array of simple, stylish projects that can be made with just a single yard of fabric: apparel, accessories, plush toys, pet beds, baby items, bags, and even home decor and "Happy Birthday" banners. Projects have a hip, contemporary flair, and most can be completed in a just few hours. So grab a yard of your favorite fabric and get sewing!
Straight Stitch Society - Split Personality Reversible Bag
Straight Stitch Society - Split Personality Reversible Bag
$8.95
We all have two sides to our personalities: a wild and crazy side and a quiet, thoughtful side, don't we? Make both sides happy with this reversible slouch bag. The Split Personality Bag uses an unexpected combination of colors and prints on one side for a bold look, and a subtle mix of fabrics on the other side. Simply flip the bag inside out when you want to show a different side of your personality. We think it would look especially great in a bold print from Jane Sassaman's new Wild Child collection with a coordinating semi solid from the Freespirit Designer Essentials Print collection.

      Sew Red Project Feature: Sonoma Purse  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Sonoma Purse
If you hadn't guessed by now, we could talk all day and night about how much we love Laura's latest book, Sew Red. But it's not just us, Sew Red is inspiring sewists and crafters everywhere! Laurie, of the House of 34 blog, took Sew Red for a spin and enjoyed both the patterns and heart healthy recipes she found inside. She suggests that many of the projects would make great gifts, as would the book itself.
As many of us at the shop have done, Laurie found a project she couldn't help but make. She chose the Sonoma Purse, designed by Patty Young. The pattern calls for just 3 fat quarters, and while Laurie didn't have enough fat quarters on hand, she was able to use 4 smaller pieces of fabric from her stash to complete her bag. After finishing the purse, Laurie says in her review, "The instructions for this purse pattern were easy to follow. I have made a lot of purses in the past but this was the first purse I made with pleats and a gusset! Love the look!" We love it, too! Great job, Laurie!
