Urban Spools Sewing Lounge is Open!

As I was in the final hours getting ready for Surtex, Michelle Kitto of THE Urban Spools posted “Pillow Talk”, and boy did that make me smile.  When living in Taiwan we had some Indian rice sorters outfitted with similar pillows I had made from emboidered silks I had collected from China, in a  “pincushion” pattern (as that is what my pincushions all looked like when I was little–its a new world out there in pincushionland)  So this just warmed my heart and it looks so nice with the orange sides and bottom.  For a tutorial, click HERE.

I met Michelle at Quiltmarket in Houston.  She is a professional machine quilter, quilting teacher, has an etsy shop, does custom orders and marvelous tutorials.  But the COOLEST thing happening is her new Urban Spools Sewing Lounge in Dallas, Texas.  It is NOW open and had its first class! The mission of The Sewing Lounge is to provide a place for people to come and hang out, sew with friends and have a place to learn in a warm and encouraging.  Long arm services also provided!  I want one of these in San Francisco…

Check out Michelle’s cool Tokyo Rococo project (so great, right?)…

  1. Oooh, I love that design, and your fabric looks fabulous! Wouldn’t it be great to have a sewing lounge in the SF area? Someone get on that!
