Christmas in July- Holiday Handmade

I know that this may seem a bit early, but Christmas is only 6 months away! If you are anything like me, you've got a large family and you want to make their Holiday just a bit more special with a handmade gift. We all know handmade takes time, so why not get started early and avoid that Christmas craft crunch. unnamed (2)

This year, we were ecstatic that Cotton + Steel designed a beautiful line of Christmas fabric, called Tinsel.  The like comes in both quilting cotton and brushed cotton (think flannel).  We also have gorgeous new yarns in that would be perfect for many a holiday gift. To get you pumped and excited for Christmas in July, we have a great bunch of classes that are perfect for gift giving on our schedule as well as some great Holiday projects to add to your home! Check out a few of our favorites:
