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!

Introduction to The Pumpkin Passport Stitch-a-Long!

Posted on April 01, 2016 by Amanda Jennings

Well hello there!

Since 2011 we have done a year long mystery stitch-a-long of all different themes- Fruit of the Month (discontinued), Dessert of the Month, Woodland Sampler, Once Upon a Time Sampler, Story Time Sampler and The Pumpkin Passport

By breaking a large chart up into smaller, easy to accomplish bits makes our patterns very entertaining and beginner friendly! Each month is a mystery to you but rest assured- the entire chart is designed, fully tested and sample stitched a year in advance before our releasing it to you. So for example, The Pumpkin Passport, our current club, was designed in 2015 and we are currently designing our 2017 sampler! 

Our 2016 mystery stitch-a-long is called The Pumpkin Passport. You may have seen friends working on it, heard it mentioned on floss tube or came across it on Instagram! This pattern is travel themed and we are visiting twelve different countries throughout the year.
