Sew Kansas Fall 2017

Sew Kansas Fall 2017

It is hard to believe that Sew Kansas has ended for 2017. We had our last two groups visit and once again they had a wonderful time sewing and shopping. If you haven't been to a Sew Kansas event, you are missing out. For three full days you have the undivided attention of Linda, Kathy, Erin, Betsy and Pat. We are ready to help you with anything you need. In your downtime, you have complete access to our full fabric selection. If you choose to spend three days petting fabric instead of sewing, well, just know that we don't judge. ​We would like to give a big thanks to all of our Sew Kansas attendees. We had a great time with you and look forward to seeing you again soon. If you want to join us for a Sew Kansas next year, check out the dates on our events page.

Tucked and Trimmed Tremont

Tucked and Trimmed Tremont

​Many designers use fabric manipulation techniques to create detail and texture on their garments. For September's Sew Confident! tutorial, we took a page out of fashion's book and added a tucked fabric manipulation detail to the front band and cuff of our ever-popular Tremont Jacket. We love how this little bit of extra detail makes the clean lines of the jacket pop!

Fashionable Fabrics for the Bells & Whistles

Fashionable Fabrics for the Bells & Whistles

Last week re-launched our classic pattern the Bells & Whistles, and we are so appreciative of the amazing response. We are glad you guys missed it as much as we did! What I love most about these two shirts is that they are so chameleon-like in their style. At their essence, they are a classic button down shirt. And of course you can wear it like that. You can use a white shirting, or maybe a light chambray to make a proper, basic shirt. Look closely however, and both styles have avant-garde design elements that open up opportunities to really play with fabric. We have put together a few inspiring fabric combinations. Tell us which one most appeals to you!
