We're getting a makeover!

If you've been at the store recently, you might have seen the changes we've been making toward the back. Fabric shelves and interfacing have moved and this space is emptying out for something new!

Next to go: pattern cabinets! Working on curating our pattern selection means we just don't need all these big cabinets anymore. And we're offering them to YOU!

Do you have an impressive pattern stash?
Want a pattern cabinet of your very own?
Call us to reserve one! 651.698.9690
Pattern cabinets have deep drawers with dividers designed for pattern storage! They are all 42.5" tall and 25" deep; widths vary from about 27"-33". Store your patterns - and more! - in style. These are first come, first served, and you'll need to arrange your own pickup. Available starting April 1.

This week's Instagram highlights:

Roberta's Katherine Tilton coat-dress is a real showstopper! Using Butterick 6254 and wool doubleknit from her stash, Roberta has created a garment that's cozy to wear and looks like a million bucks! Check out her beautifully straight topstitching highlighting those raglan sleeves.

Long-time Treadle customer and friend Alice recently shared her trifecta of spring sweatshirts and allowed us to re-post. All three are made from our soft sweatshirt knits, two of them using the Toaster Sweater pattern (available at Treadle!). Want to make your own? Check out the Toaster Sweater class below!

Best Bust Fit Online

Focus on fitting the bust! The majority of women need to make bust adjustments to commercial patterns. Plenty of fit issues stem from poor bust fit: buttons pulling, wrinkles and drag lines around the bust, pointy darts, uneven hemlines, baggy backs, too much fabric in the upper chest, or gaping armholes. In this lecture and discussion class, we'll show you how to make a Full Bust Adjustment or Small Bust Adjustment, how to custom-shape darts, how to rotate your dart intake, and more. Be ready to ask questions and take notes!

Toaster Sweaters Online

Such a great pattern that some people wear it as their uniform! Two versions make very different tops and can be modified merely by using different knits. Easy to sew/serge and fun to wear.

New fabrics from Rifle Paper Co.
We always love the stunning designs from Rifle, and these are no exception. Spring is for florals, but these fabrics keep it modern and not too sweet. At right, two in cotton/linen blend, and two in 100% cotton below. If you could capture spring daydreams on a fabric, they'd look like this!

Happy Sewing,
Michele and the Treadlettes
