  2. Staff show-and-tell: look what we made!

    Posted by on June 25, 2014

    You may have guessed that we’re a creative bunch here in the office. Of our 34 employees, 26 of us sew and quilt. Pretty great percentage, eh? And that doesn’t even count the knitters or crochet addicts! A typical Monday morning will include show-and-share of someone’s completed weekend project. If we hear any ooohs or […]


  3. True love: pairing patchwork and embroidery (+ giveaway!)

    Posted by on May 15, 2014

    Want to know a little secret? We started an office sew-along from a book almost four months before it was published. What can we say? It’s a work perk—and we couldn’t resist! It’s just a little hand stitching among friends, every Wednesday at lunchtime, like clockwork. And we love every minute of it. The book […]

  6. 15 things we learned at Quilt Market

    Posted by on November 14, 2013

    The creative craziness that is Fall Quilt Market is now behind us, and we’ve finally caught our breath. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Quilt Market is put on twice a year by Quilts, Inc., and it’s a place for people who make quilt stuff (like us) and people who sell quilt stuff (like […]


  7. Mentoring beginners: quilting, knitting, crochet

    Posted by on April 2, 2013

    Over the years, more than one of my friends has accused me of being an enabler. I’m not ashamed to admit it. I am an enabler. I encourage friends to buy a fabulous piece of fabric, a new yarn, or a fun new pattern. And it’s not just that I’m hoping they’ll stimulate our economy. […]


  8. A holiday party with heart (+ free pattern!)

    Posted by on December 21, 2012

    Before we depart to be with our families during the days leading up to Christmas, we wanted to take a moment and say “THANK YOU!” for being a part of the Stitch This! blog. Your creativity, your stories—your spirited answers to Quirky Questions—are a true gift, allowing us to connect with you in a way […]


  9. Quilt letter patterns: now it’s personal

    Posted by on December 17, 2012

    Folk-art and primitive quilts are fantastically fun to make, and here’s one reason why: they’re just not that focused on perfection. In fact, they discourage it. Folk art is a style that affirms individual creativity and invites invention. “Mistakes” are simply opportunities to add character! Start with a few basic motifs and soon you’re designing […]


  10. Fall 2012 Quilt Market: It started with a whisper

    Posted by on November 6, 2012

    As I get ready to write this post, a song lyric is stuck in my head. It begins, “It started with a whisper,” and then continues with lots of other words I don’t remember. My Quilt Market recap wants to have a similarly catchy line: “It started with a bare booth.” I could be quite clever […]
