I took a trip earlier this year to San Francisco to visit friends. I had a full day of fabric and notions shopping. While visiting, I picked up a pattern from this cute little fabric store in the Piedmont area.
Velvet was one of the hottest fabrics this Fall/Winter 16 season. The ThReD and Needles sewing group focused on making a look out of velvet fabric for the months of November and December. Please check out all of the projects HERE. Also, check out all of the projects for 2016. Continue reading
For my fellow sewers, I am sure that you can empathize with me on this subject. One of the worst feeling is when you start a project and you are almost to the finish line when disaster strikes!

The members of the ThReD and Needles group slayed the leather challenge for October! We had some beyond impressive submissions of accessories that could rival the most expensive luxury brands as well as some great apparel entries! Check out the project submissions HERE.
The color black is one of the most essential, sophisticated, daring, and bold colors that a girl could own in her closet.

What I love about Summer is that fashion is easy and lightweight for the warmer weather. This simplicity translates into simple, chic designs for the season as well. For the month of July, the ThReD and Needles group focused on the “exposed shoulder”. We had submissions for off-the-shoulder, peek-a-boo, and cold shoulder designs. This month we had a lot of participation in the group. Please check out the EXPOSED SHOULDER projects from July HERE.
