The most unique fabric for a seriously cute kit!

Posted on July 27, 2016 by Amanda Jennings

On Thursday, July 28th at 9 am Pacific Time (you can google- "what time is it in California" if you are unsure about the time difference!) we will be launching two new clubs! 


One club we'd like to share with you today is alllll about Halloween! The pattern is called Trick-or-Treat Costume Club and it features a bunch of seriously cute kids in costumes.


We picked some pretty DMC + Weeks Dye Works for this pattern and the sample is adorable.


But what makes this club really mysterious and unique is the fabric choice!


The Aida & Cashel Linen are hand dyed by Picture This Plus and while they are all the same colorway, each piece is completely different.


The Aida fabric is more purple, the Cashel is a little more blue. 


Some pieces of either fabric base are a beautiful semi-solid, while some pieces have orange smudges! 


If you purchase a kit from us, order directly Picture This Plus or from your local needlework shop, your piece of fabric will be completely one of a kind and unique to just you!


Unfortunately here at TFPS we can't reserve a particular piece for you but we can say that each piece for our kits are very beautiful and special! 


If mysterious fabric isn't your thing- that's totally ok! You don't need a kit to stitch-a-long with us! Pick up the pattern and download it to your mobile device or print it out and bring it to your local needlework shop, it's just as fun to do a floss toss and pick out your own fabric. If you don't have a local needlework shop, many online shops are happy to help with fabric options. 


You'll be able to find Trick-or-Treat Costume Party in the "New" section on our website on July 28th at 9 am Pacific time! We'll see you then!

Spring Has Sprung!

Posted on April 14, 2016 by Amanda Jennings

We have Spring fever right now!

This week we had bits of rain, lots of sunshine and we spent a lot of time at local garden shops trying to decide what to plant this year! The roses in the middle photo are grown in Ashleigh's garden- gorgeous right?!

We are pleased to release a brand new pattern, a re-released pattern and a pattern bundle for you this week. All Spring-y & fresh!

First up is called Up! Up! And Away! As you can tell from The Pumpkin Passport, we are on a bit of a travel kick lately! This little pattern features a bunny heading off on a hot air balloon adventure. Up! Up! And Away! is a fun, beginner friendly pattern that would be an easy weekend stitch for a little seasonal decoration. We designed this pattern for YarnTree's Nashville Needlework Show that took place in March, it's now available directly from us as a PDF or printed copies through your local needlework shop!

Back by popular demand...Spring Sampler!
Phew! We've had *so* many requests to bring back our seasonal samplers but we wanted to change them around a bit and that takes a good amount of time.

Here is some back story for you! When we originally released them they were a mystery club with numbered boxes, counting our favorite things of each season. As time went on and the mystery clubs ended, when folks purchased the chart, we noticed that they left off the numbers on the patterns except for the Kawaii Winter Sampler. When we brainstormed how we wanted to revamp these patterns, we opted to leave off the numbers but leave everything else the same.

The downside was that we had a hard drive crash a few years back and we lost all the original charts. *gulp!* With the hard drive crash, we lost all the original black and white charts and couldn't update the patterns to include color charts. It was a super hard decision to stop selling a big chunk of our pattern catalog. We received many, many, many emails asking if we could please bring them back. We had to decide if it was going to be a good idea to pause work on new patterns to complete restore old patterns! 

So in her "spare" time, Ashleigh redesigned all the charts again, from the ground up! She's awesome right?!

Now all four seasons are available again! The PDFs contain black and white charts, along with color charts and the formatting matches all the patterns in our collection. We had our proofing team go over them with a fine tooth comb so they are perfect for you to work on! If you previously purchased any of the samplers and only have black and white charts- please contact us with the email address you purchased the pattern with. We will gladly send you updated charts, free of charge!

If you have been waiting for Spring Sampler to purchase all four patterns, we have an awesome deal for you! You can purchase a bundle that contains all four seasonal patterns- instead of buying each pattern individually at $12.95, you can purchase all four for $44.95 and save $6.85! 

To receive the discount, all four patterns must be purchased using the bundle link and the discount is not valid on previous purchases.

We hope you have a good weekend!

Happy Stitching,
Amanda & Ashleigh
