Hi everyone!

If you’re an Internet savvy shopper and you find yourself pretty connected via social media, you’ll find lots of ways to share your favorite Warehouse Fabrics Inc. products with friends.

Go to any of our product pages — here’s Rowland Silver, just for example — and you’ll see that with a simple click you can share that product on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, or you can even email friends about it.

Our latest option is a way to comment on a product via Facebook that both shares with your friends on Facebook AND posts to our website so other shoppers can see it. This is a wonderful way to share your feelings about a product with other people — whether it’s just a lovely fabric you’re daydreaming about or a more detailed review of a product you have used. Isn’t it great to see what other sewers think of a fabric before you buy?

We encourage you to give this feature a whirl. Simply open a product page and click the “comments” tab underneath the photo. It’s pretty self-explanatory from there! If you could test it out for us and offer feedback, we’d be much obliged.

Starfruit cushions

Aren’t these cushions fun? Assembling them feels almost like doing a puzzle. I found this project at Matching Pegs. Give it a try! The pattern is made from a bunch of squares, so you can easily change the size by changing the size of the squares. Interesting buttons can really make the pillow special!

A slot seam allows you to add a little peek-a-boo of fun to your sewing. The seam can lie closed, but it pops open just a bit to reveal another fabric inside. Use a simple contrasting solid, or a whole different print. This can be incorporated into clothing really easily! Read the rest of this entry »

New winner drawn

Unfortunately, our original winner for April’s $50 gift certificate drawing didn’t claim her prize, so I have drawn a new name.

Maxine B., you won! Please respond to the email I sent you within 48 hours to claim your prize! Or you can contact me through the blog or Facebook.

This project is found in Amy Butler’s “In Stitches” book. I’ve had this book for a while and decided it was time to try out a pattern. A CD holder appealed to me because I have a couple of shelves in my desk area that seem to be a perpetual mess. Read the rest of this entry »

Problems with posts

We’ve received a few comments from blog readers about some of our blog posts that appear to have become blank files. It’s odd because our blog dashboard shows the coding is all still there. We are working on a solution, but meanwhile, PDF versions of three of our most popular tutorials can be found on Scribd.

If there is another one you want, just send me a message and I’ll put it up there.

Diaper Bag With a Divider
Pleated handbag
Scalloped Apron

I hope those files will help you for the time being. If you come across any other problems on the blog, please let us know!

A cute little basket – just in time for Easter! And I mean just in time for Easter. I should have done this in advance, but here I was, days before Easter, trying to whip up a homemade Easter basket for my almost-2-year-old. 

For this project, you’ll use strips of fabric wrapped around really pudgy piping. Then you’ll coil the whole thing into a basket. Read the rest of this entry »

April’s fabric special is a lovely woven chenille with a shell pattern that makes an excellent chair print. Normally a very reasonable $8.98 a yard, this month it’s just $4.98 a yard! Order your samples early and take advantage of this wonderful deal on Authenica Meadow.
