I will have many grab n go items on hand to make it easy. Thick extra soft and cozy organic sweatshirt fleece 2 yard cuts are $36. Discounted one yard cuts including organic knits and Japanese cottons. Many trims, ribbons, seam tape, buttons, etc will be bagged and priced to move.

Center For Pattern Design

As some of you may know, I also own Center for Pattern Design, a pattern company based on methods pioneered by Madeleine Vionnet and those she has inspired. Mostly bias cut, these patterns are for advanced sewers and should be approached as a guide to exploring your own personal fit and design. I will be bringing them to Puyallup!

I have posted a free pattern download of an example of subtraction cutting by Julian Roberts here:


Decided To Bring Some Buttons

ina celayaComment

I have a small but nice collection of buttons that commonly get overlooked at the brick and mortar. Trying to post them online asap but until then I will be packing them up for the show. 

I have a selection of designer and fair trade buttons. Bone, horn, shell, and other materials. Mostly understated. I will be packaging them in groups into little zip lock bags and pre-pricing for easy purchase. If you would like to mix and match or would like a different amount please feel free to request your preference no problem.

I recently decided to discontinue some pattern lines in the shop. They are all great pattern companies, it just takes me too much time to order, special order, and keep stocked especially when companies are having their own online sales. I have marked them down 40%. Locals had their chance for the deal and now I am packing them up to take to Sew Expo. However, the Decades of Style patterns have been posted to my Etsy page here

Pattern lines included: Sewing Workshop, Decades of Style, Named, Cashmerette, and Thread Theory! 


As of January 22 inventory on Sewing Workshop is as follows and is subject to change, contact me for an online order: 

New Yorker Jacket

Riviera Shirt

Plaza Jacket and Pants

Florence Shirt

Mimosa Top and PAnts 

Tahoe Pant
