It’s time for this week’s What We Love #33 ♥ It’s the last week of January, and with that, it gives us a glimmer of hope that warmer weather is upon us. Wishful thinking. In the meantime, while we snuggle up in our jammies and hot tea, Pinterest is our best friend on cold winter nights. We’ve been inspired by adorable and pretty things, as per usual. See what we have been loving most this week…♥

Hi everyone,





Happy Thursday!! We hope you all are having a lovely day. Have you entered our Elixir Giveaway yet? We want to know what your favorite Pantone 2015 color is. You can enter on our Facebook Page here :)


It’s time for our Thankful Thursday! Today we are featuring Needle Travel, a fantastic fiber & fabric travel guide that is super useful for anyone who loves fabric. Needle Travel is a reference book of quilt & craft shops in the United States (we hope they expand!), complete with contact information and addresses. The shops are organized by state and are in alphabetical order, so you can easily find the shop nearest you (super convenient when you travel and want to peruse shops in an unknown area!). As well, Needle Travel features a legend to easily guide you on what each shop specifically carries (fabric, yarn, needlepoint, etc). The travel guide is updated each year with added shops & changed information, and they now offer an app for smartphone users!




We think the Needle Travel guide is a brilliant concept. We often get asked where our fabric is sold, so this is the perfect reference because many of the quilt shops who sell our fabrics are featured. And if you flip through the book, you may come across someone familiar…yup, us! ;) *sigh* our fabrics are looking oh-so pretty…




We really wanted to feature Needle Travel on the blog because we think it’s awesome! Compact, super convenient, and up-to-date – all the information you need on local quilt and craft shops in one place. You can check out their website and Facebook to see where you can find a copy. Have a great day, everyone! :)




Happy Sewing!

Fun note, our Elixir Collection features the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year… Radiant Orchid. It is such a pretty and vivacious purple color, and it was definitely one of our favorites. Pantone had recently launched its 2015 Spring ColorsAquamarine, Scuba Blue, Lucite Green, Classic Blue, Toasted Almond, Strawberry Ice, Tangerine, Custard, Marsala, Glacier Gray – and chose Marsala as its 2015 Color of the Year.
