New classes for summer!


June Pattern of the Month

A new month means a new pattern that we love, offered to you at a special price!

This cute high-waisted pant or short has been a Treadle favorite! Elastic in the back keeps the fit easy, and the angled pockets are a fun and interesting detail.

Check out Laura's version made in Essex linen.

This pattern is 15% off through the month of May!

Reg $ 22.95  Sale $ 19.50

Have you made the Pietra pant? We'd love to share your make!


Graphic Knit Prints

These graphic knit prints are ideal for fun summer tees and tanks!

These soft cotton jersey fabrics have a little elastane to help hold their shape, making them perfect for quick-to-sew projects that won't bag or sag.

Shop them all here!

It's that magical time - we've got a whole fresh batch of new classes for you!

EverSewn Machines

Sewing is a lot more fun when you're not fighting with a dysfunctional machine. Don't you think you deserve an upgrade?

If you're planning which classes to take with us this summer, a more portable machine might be an ideal addition to your sewing toolkit! EverSewn machines are light enough to tote around to classes, but sturdy enough for years of sewing.

Plus, the purchase of any of our machines gets you a FREE intro class to learn all the neat features!

Friday Fun Fact!

A few weeks ago, we talked about sergers. Read that one here!

This week, we're exploring the cover stitch machine.

It can look like a serger, or a bit like a regular sewing machine, but a cover stitch machine is WAY more complicated.

Using cones and loopers, the cover stitch machine replicates the factory-made t-shirt hem with a double row of stitching on the right side.

Most home sewers who use a cover stitch machine agree: it doesn't replace a serger. Sure, it overlocks like a serger, but switching the settings from cover stitch to overlock stitch is complicated and requires some tricky threading. 

Instead, if you like what this machine can do, use it only for the cover stitch hem, and keep your basic serger for overlocking seams.
