For years, I have had the same rather boring stockings that haven’t quite expressed my love for Christmas decorating. This year I made a promise to myself and to everyone here at MD that I would make new embroidered stockings for everyone in my family (including the dog and cat!).
I’ve been busy brainstorming and sample testing for February’s Society project and wanted to give you a sneak peek…
Every other week, we profile one of our customers to find out a little bit about their sewing life. This week the MD Sewist Spotlight is on Kathy Briggs.
I’m in full decorating mode for the holidays. You may have seen my inspiration this year–scandinavian simplicity with a bold choice of turquoise, linen, and black.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you WON a brand new BERNINA 215 sewing machine? If you would like the chance, just swing by the booth at Crafty Wonderland this weekend and scan the code on the machine for your chance!
Who’s excited for Saturday’s Society meeting? I am!!
This weekend (November 30th-December 3rd), Modern Domestic is offering the walking foot on sale for only $149. ONE-FOURTY-NINE you say? This foot is truly priceless. It is able to assist in so many sewing situations: quilting (or anytime you encounter more than 2 layers of fabric), sticky fabrics (leather, oil cloth, vinyl), plaids and strips, long seams like ones you would use in home dec sewing, and for all types of knits! If you thought the walking foot was only used for quilting, think again!

For December’s Society project, I wanted to continue to use the fun folksy linen print we saw in the holiday apron from last month. (You may have also notice a similar print in my Modern Folk Stockings as well.) I love the rustic simplicity of the print, but also how great it looks with solids. And decorative stitches!
