New Coat-Weight Wool

It's definitely wool-sewing season!

Sewing a coat doesn't have to be complicated. Just like any other type of garment, patterns range from simple to complex, with styles to suit everyone's needs!

These new heavy-weight wools are perfect for a toasty jacket or coat. Start now and get it done with PLENTY of winter left to wear it!

Shop wools here!

We have lots more new wool coming up, so keep an eye on our emails!

Friday Fun Fact!

Today I want to share some of my favorite online resources for sewing. Click on the links to check out the websites!

Pattern Review is still the standard community database for reviews on sewing patterns, machines, and more. You can create an account to make posts but you don't have to be a member just to browse! (We know, the website design on this one is a little dated and clunky, but there's still loads of great information!)

Many of our favorite pattern companies have blogs! They'll give you new pattern updates, tutorials, and sewing inspiration. Check out a few of our faves here:

Sew House Seven
Closet Core

Curvy Sewing Collective is THE place for plus-size sewing resources, from pattern suggestions and fitting tips to great reviews and photos of home-sewn garments on actual plus size peoples' bodies. 

This might seem obvious to some of you, but don't overlook Pinterest. There's tons of sewing content if you know what to look for! You can often find free patterns for crafts, quilts, and garments. (Yeah, we know TikTok exists too, but that's a new fad that hasn't quite trickled down to the understory yet.)

And obvy, this list would not be complete without our own Treadle Blog, where you can see all our Friday Fun Facts, tutorials, project inspirations, and more. Search the tags to find just what you need!

You can park in the Green Mill/Colossal Cafe lot from 10-4 Monday through Thursday. Find it diagonally across the street, next to the gas station.
