FREE CLASS?! FREE PATTERN?!: If you’ve been following us on social media, you might have noticed hints about an upcoming project with the absolutely wonderful Clara of Clara Stitching. Well, wonder no more! June is Sacred Heart Month, and to make it even more special, Clara has joined us to give back to our lovely community and help the DIY sewer bring more beauty into the world. We’re offering a free Chalice Pal pattern that is downloadable and printable! Additionally, we will have special kits to go along with the pattern to make sewing it a breeze. These kits will be steeply discounted—almost as free as we can make them without taking a loss.


The kits and patterns will be available from May 20th through June 7th, and we only have 50 available. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Now for the good part: Clara will be hosting a free hand embroidery class teaching you step-by-step how to make the breathtaking heart shown above. She will also have kits available on her website so you can get all the supplies you need! Her class will be held on June 15th, with more information to come. By the way, go give her a follow on social media if you aren’t already. You don’t want to miss any updates.
