Aurifil Pop-Up Shop

There are all kinds of Christmas events happening this weekend in Amherst, and Sew Karen-ly Created will be part of that, with a pop-up shop of Aurifil thread at Mrs Pugsley's Emporium on Saturday.  I'll be there from 10-1.
 There was a new order of threads in this week, and they are gorgeous!  We've added more of the very fine 80 weight, and I will have samples there for you to feel and compare to the 50, 40, 28 and 12 weights, as well as sewn samples so you can see the difference.


Mrs Pugsley's Emporium is located at 50 Victoria Street East, Amherst, in the historic clock tower building downtown.  See you there!

To Market, To Market...

The annual trek to Quilt Market in Houston has begun and, although I will not be making the trip, I am thrilled that one of the projects I made for Island Batik will be there!  My Felicity Table Runner and Placemats, pieced in the new "Paisley Park" collection will be in the Island Batik booth.
I am very pleased to be featured as one of their designers in the 2018 Fall and Winter Catalogue.

Paisley Park is a gorgeous collection, and I enjoyed working with these rich, vibrant colours very much.  The pattern makes a great workshop piece, as it uses strip-piecing, curved seaming, and foundation piecing in a manageable sized project.  The pattern is distributed by Island Batik, so if you are in Houston, stop by their booth to order the pattern for your shop.
