Bias tape makers are back in stock! We know that bias tape has been pretty impossible to find lately. Our vendors have been back ordered for ages and we don't know when it'll be back in stock.

Why not try making your own? We make it simple with these handy bias tape makers! Stop by and ask us for a demonstration!

Treadlette Tuesday: Elizabeth's Quilt

Elizabeth made this bright, cheerful quilt from a fabulous panel print we have in the store. The panel and several coordinates are part of the Soulshine and Daydreams collection - see them here! Elizabeth also chose several fabrics from Treadle to fill in the design, including prints from Tula Pink and Kaffe Fassett. (Plus a few from her stash, of course!)

This pattern is available for FREE at the Benartex website - click here to get it!

For backing, she chose a Cloud 9 Organic cotton floral print from the store.

She quilted it herself with a free-motion curlicue pattern.

And put in a few extra details around the face!

You can see this quilt on display at Treadle. Plus, Elizabeth is teaching our Beginning Quilting class starting next week! If this project inspires you to learn quilting, go check out the class!

Double-sided double gauze

We love these new double gauze plaids and dots. First of all, cotton double gauze is amazing. It's the soft, dreamy fabric we just can't get enough of. But the bonus here is that each fabric has two sides! Making a shirt? Use the reverse side for a contrasting cuff. Hem up a perfect scarf! Or cut different pattern pieces from each side for a custom coordinate.


Stop by the store to see these, or check them out at our online shop!
