From Our House to Yours FREE pattern

We are eagerly anticipating the shipment of our brand new Christmas collection any day now from MODA and to say that we are excited would be an understatement. It came out so good you guys! I know it feels so strange to be talking about Christmas in the middle of the summer but that is the way of the fabric world. Christmas fabric needs to arrive to shops during the summer so that everyone can plan and prepare for the holiday madness at the end of the year.

This is what the “panel” fabric looks like below. It is running yardage with a few of the main stitchery panels and a bunch of individual motifs as…
