sewing for all seasons party at Modern Domestic! September 23, 2013

If you’re in Portland this Friday evening, September 27, I hope you can stop by my Sewing for all Seasons party at Modern Domestic! It goes from 6-8 pm and we’ll have wine, snacks, books, and fabric prizes to win (more on that in a minute)… they throw such nice parties and I’m really looking forward to it!

Everyone who buys a book will get a free kit to make your first project from the collection, a coffee cup cozy.

This is one my favorite little everyday essentials – this time of year especially. The patchwork comes together very quickly, and it would be the perfect little holiday gift to go with a nice reusable cup, or coffee card…

We’ll also be drawing names to win four bigger project kits, one from each season. For Spring, I picked one of my favorite prints for a Vintage Scarf Headband kit.

For Summer, you can make a couple of Sunglasses Cases for yourself or a friend!

Along with the coffee-cup cozy, I chose two prints to make up a special kit for another favorite Autumn project, the Sketchbook Cover. Chronicle is offering up this Sketchbook Cover project as a free download so be sure and check it out, a whole week before the book is even out in stores…

And for Winter, I teamed up with Amy Peppler Adams of Penny Candy Handmade to put together a New Year’s Calendar kit. You can buy her awesome calendar fabric in her Spoonflower shop, but one lucky person will win this fabric calendar project kit with a fat quarter of the very same 2014 design I got to sew with in the book. Amy also designed the super cute coffee-cup cozy kit label and I just love her work!

I am also so happy that, along with lots of book projects, Modern Domestic will be showing an exhibit of my quilts for the party – they asked me to choose some of my favorites and share the stories behind them, since I make such personal quilts. Fingers crossed, I will have one brand-new quilt to include along with my older favorites, and of course the two from my new book. Thank you, Rachel and Lupine!
