We attended the Daffodil Tournament hosted by Victoria’s chapter of Society of Creative Anachronism, The Barony of Seagirt. Had lots of fun dressing in costume, watching the sword fighting tournaments, the costume competition and talking to people who are enthused by Medieval culture and history. Can’t wait for the next SCA event!
About 100 pillows were picked up today by the nurses at the Breast Health Center in Victoria. Big shout out to the volunteers who sew up the kits we provide. Without their sewing skills, these kits would be just fabric and stuffing!
Check out the awesome classes at next week’s show, and buy tickets. We’re excited for the Perfecting Pockets workshop on Friday. Welt pockets without visible top stitching? Yes please. We’ll be there so stop by the booth and say “hi”!
March’s sewing forum will be held on March 5th at 10am. Join us for cookies and conversation with other sewing enthusiasts!

We just added Oly*Fun craft fabric to our store! Oly*Fun is great because it doesn’t fray or tear, and is water resistant so can be used inside or outside. You might recognize it from those re-usable grocery bags, but here are some fun craft ideas on their website:
Open up and trace an envelope, then use contrasting colours of Oly*Fun to make a pretty and sturdy package. More detailed instructions at http://oly-fun.com/project-fabric-envelopes.html
Cut contrasting strips of Oly*Fun, then tie them around 1/4″ elastic. Tie them comfortably around wrists! For more detailed instructions, go to http://oly-fun.com/project-spirit-cuffs.html.
And most of all – have fun!
