Tis the Season to Sparkle


Our first Kimberbell event was a big hit! Yeah to Tina for her holiday tee which she made- an ideal match for our event.  We had so much fun and it was the perfect event to get the holiday season of stitching started.

Gifts for everyone and a moose treat greeted them as they arrived.

Kimberbell samples are taking the spotlight in the store this weekend.

Are you ready to get started?

Huge thanks to Cindy for being my first assistant.  We make a great team!

Saturday's event included 3 fun ladies who stitched out their projects and played along with our games. And YES, everyone went home with 3 finished projects!

Sunday was alittle more hectic and the laughter was flowing freely.  The 'Paper Plate' game was a big hit and the perfect break bewteen projects.

A huge thank you gift to our customers for joining our first Kimberbell event!

We are sew excited to announce our next event 'Garden Guild' slated for February 2021!  The perfect event for a fresh new year.  Please follow us for more information as we finalize our plans,

Happy Holidays from all of us at Scrap & Sew!

It's October! what happened to September?!

I just realized that the last time that I posted was in September!  Oh my, what happened?

I know! Kimberbell's Twilight BOO-levard Bench Pillow and Zoom. Wow- that was sure a big project.  But now up next are the bench buddies for fall which actually rolls right into Christmas.

We are offering the first Zoom "sew along" class because you know- we just wanna sew-all-night long! 😁

So come join the fun with us on October 27th from 6-9:00 p.m.  You can pick the pillows that you want to make as each of them has a special technique that only Kimberbell can do.

Up first are September's square and rectangle pillows. "Leaves are falling and Autumn is Calling" includes maple leaves blocks that are pieced in the hoop. Definitely slightly tricky but I know you can do it. The "hello fall" rectangle pillow includes orange glitter flex and purple organza along with the embroidery leaves.

Many of you know that I love Halloween, which is one of the reasons that I always have a few Halloween projects in the queqe.  The two pillows in the designs were the reason I was drawn to this collection.  Witches' hats and boots- oh my!

Glitter fabric for the pot, and purple orangza is quite the match.  The pompom trim and buttons adds the piece de resistance! These two will look marvelous with my BOO bench pillow.

Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before you know it and so let's round out the set of bench pillows.  I love the 'Give Thanks' pillow with the pumpkin lace accent and who doesn't love the KImberbell Fall flowers that top the pumpkin on the square pillow?

Lastly, are the two Christmas pillow designs and the Christmas tree includes a twig! How clever.

You can sign up for the class here and sew right along with us at home.  I have finished the fall designs and they stitch up rather quickly.  There are lots of Kimberbell techniques included in this cute little bundle.

Come join the fun!

Hello September! There is "SEW" much happening.

Check it out!  I am 'sew' excited to bring you all of this exciting news.  There is so much to share that I am going to break it down into a series of blog posts, so be sure to sign up for notifications so you don't miss one post.

There is a NEW update coming for the Pfaff icon at the end of September.  Why am I jumping up and down? (it is not a pretty sight...).  The update will allow you to use the new Ribbon Attachment, which is currently only on the Viking Epic 2.

Key features include:
  • 360° rotation 
  • Create texture & dimension, expanding embroidery capabilities 
  • Adjustable ribbon guide 
  • Motorized device 
  • 4 unique designs available to download
To me, this is pretty exciting because I love texture on my projects and this new feature certainly adds that.  Here are a few projects that I made with the ribbon attachment on the Viking Epic 2.

If you have joined the mySewnet library subscription, you have access to over 5000 designs.  They also have an entire category with just ribbon attachment designs.

I think this would look terrific on a black t shirt! So look for more amazing samples of this fabulous new feature coming soon.  

You can now order this with a 20% discount and YES, we are open on Labor Day.

Let the Christmas Stitchin' Begin!

A few weeks ago, I posted the hexagonal table toppper here.  When it is 90 degrees out, it is hard to think of Christmas, but it is August 1st ( now the 4th) and it will be here before you know it.

I was SEW excited when this new collection came in and I decided to feature that for the Bundle Buddie this month.  But alas July got away from me, and so it is ready to post finally today!

Are you crazy about red trucks?  I sure am! Here is my version of the Red Truck kitchen towel that I designed using this collection.

Isn't it cute?  Coming soon is a new pattern to coordinate with this fabric line and yes, we have a wood design fabric! Plus, I am so excited that she now has patterns so we can cut this out on our Silhouette Cameo machine!  This is the next one up on my to-do list.

Enough of that. Let's move on with the project at hand.  I found a clip art design online to recreate this super cute truck design and yes, it is included in the pattern.

I did cut it out with the Silhouette Cameo and there is also an SVG file for the tree, truck and the hanger pattern.

But you don't own/use a Silhouete Cameo?  No worries the pattern is included with the directions to make the red truck using Heat n Bond Lite.  Just remember to reverse the truck and tree or it will be going the wrong way.

Now that August is upon us, it is time to start making Fall, Halloween and Christmas projects.  Take a break from making masks and get your holiday stitchin' started.

Start the New Year with a Kimberbell celebration!
