All Ears: Adorable Fabric Mouse Pincushion


This itty-bitty mouse is just too irresistible to avoid! I am picturing it using a variety of different fabrics, which you can find here at our online fabric store! This could be used as a pincushion or similar sewing stow, and it is a far-from cheesy gift idea!

#1 – Felt Leaf Napkin Rings And Place Holders

Just Folkin Around


jando50thfolkfest

The Philadelphia Folk Festival is a three day long music extravaganza. During those three days, three generations of people come together in a farmer’s field in Schwenksville, PA to listen to (and play) some amazing music, camp, and bond with their fellow hippie compatriots.  When you step onto grounds, you take a step back to fifty years ago when ‘Fest’ began. Not only is the entire vibe of the festival the same now as it was then, so is the style of clothing. Along with friends and music, another attraction to Fest is its craft area. There, you will find one of the most unique assortments of clothing and goods ever brought together in one place.

Yarn In Motion

The yarn bombing revolution has not slowed down since J&O first posted about it. As awesome as those yarn bombing pictures were, we decided to branch out and show you just how these amazing crafts are created with some videos.

This time laps video is a great illustration of a creative yarn bombing exposition. This mix of yarn bombing and graphic design makes for a very unique creation.

One of the most famous yarn bombing expeditions to date is the covering of the Charging Bull statue on Wall Street. See how fast the darners of the artist moved as she put together that piece!
