Give thanks – for fast, fun table-topper sewing!

We’re closing in on that busy time of year—the holidays! Even though we have lots of planning, cooking, shopping, and decorating ahead, it’s important to carve out a little space for ourselves and spend time in our happy place—in front of our sewing machines. We all deserve a little escape from the insanity, don’t we?

Table toppers and runners give us a perfect opportunity to enjoy valuable me time and prepare for the holiday. If you’re hosting the Big Meal, a new topper will do wonders to make your table look extra special. If someone else is doing the cooking (lucky you!), what better hostess gift than a new runner for the table? We picked a few out just for you.
