Well I'll be, didn't even know you existed! Missed small business Saturday...just might have to fit you in to giving Tuesday! Can't wait for life to get back so I can come in!
Codi!
Finished sewing this cute pouch from Sweet Janes's Daphne Pouch pattern and some lining fabric from Home Ec Workshop. The pattern was in a Mystery Kit I purchased. got this pink bird fabric last summer and just didn't know what to do with it until I saw the pattern. Thanks Codi.
Any truth to the rumors that people have seen Liz building a stage on the Home Ec. porch?
Finished the Hillside Tote with fabric from your shop. Love the flowers and also a fabric wristlet.
Hello Home Ec friends! Finished this project which I picked up a while ago. Changed some of the colors from what the kit specified (cuz I can!) Lost a needle along the way, hm...
Happy making!
Can Home Ec have this class for 1000 of my neighborhood
friends?
Hello friends at Home Ec! My niece told me she lost an earring I made her, so with supplies I picked up last year, and the skills and confidence to "just do it!" I got from goddess Liz Munger, I just stitched up a replacement.
Hope you all are well. Happy making!
Finished a Noodlehead Zip Top Tote for my daughter. #homeecmakealong
Thanks for the wonderful yarn so that I could make The Shift!!

Ooo, how exciting—a summer quilt-a-long! It’s not too late to join in on this fun Backyard Party Quilt stitch-a-long hosted by @thencamejune. We think it’d look especially amazing in the Warp & Weft Fabric by @rubystarsociety that we have in stock. It’d be spectacular paired with either @modafabrics’ Grainline Wovens in Fog or in @robertkaufman’s Essex in Natural. Swipe to see the pairings! All you’d need for the quilt top is 2.25 yards of the background and a half yard each of the printed fabric. You can find them on our website under Shop > Fabric > Yarn-dyed Wovens, and you can find the pattern for the quilt through @thencamejune’s website. Happy quilting!
