It's Her Bag!

One of the great things about Threadbenders is that some of  the best quilters work there, ready to help you. And they're busy making their own quilting happen.

Wanda showed us her  favorite bag. Its big enough for everything you need for quilt class, ruler, mat, fabric and all. And has a great little bag for your cutter, markers and scissors. 

Of course it doesn't hurt to have a great line of fabric that's all ready to go together
You'll find both great patterns in Sew on the Go. And you'll be completely organized for your class, bee or sewing room. And you'll find Wanda, ready to help you pick out great bag fabric for you at Threadbenders.

Henry Goes Shopping!

Hi! Introducing myself! 
I'm Henry. I work at Threadbenders as a shopping assistance dog. In case you've thoughtlessly left your dog at home, I can assist you while you pick out your fabric and help relieve shopping stress by being shamelessly cute.

Fall is on its way. They made me a really darling dog bed. 

But now of course it needs a quilt to go with it. 
Thankfully we have fabulous dog fabric here.

Will you cut these for me?
So it's that time. Start a great quilt for your favorite fur person. Or maybe one you can share together. We've got the fabric right here.

Great Strip Quilts from Painted Panels

We love this new kind of print. They're not really panels, but they do feel like a panel. They're a yard long repeat of a painted image. But how do you make them into a quilt?
Here's a great idea.
If you cut them into strips and separate them with another fabric it looks like light shimmering through.  
Simple. Stunning.
This quilt was made with different width strips, but you could use the same width for a realistic look. The changes in size make a more contemporary feel.
There are all kinds of these painted panel quilts available. Imagine what you could do with these?
And, it's the easiest quilt you'll ever piece. Come into Threadbenders and see the great painted panels that could be your next masterpiece.

Make Special Holiday Memories with Fabric!

So much of every holiday is about the small things we do to make the day special. When we use fabric to celebrate the days of our lives, we make memories for our families that everyone shares for ever. It's great to make a holiday table runner or pull out a special quilt we've made for the day.
But it doesn't need to be that complicated. A great panel can make 
  • A tablecloth
  • Cover up a less than tidy pile
  • A cool way to deliver class or party treats
  • an instant cape (just tie it with a ribbon or a scarf)

Even a scrap of fabric can brighten a tray, fill a candy bowl, scare people, remind them of the fabulous Halloween traditions, that belong just to your family. Build them today. Love them forever.
