new fat quarter bundles

We are in the process of putting together a bunch of new fat quarter bundles for the shop right now. Fat quarters are 18″ X 22″ cuts that are perfect for a wide range of projects including coasters, pic cushions, children’s assessories, a variety of tote bags, computer cases, wallets, wristlets and much, MUCH more. And let’s not forget they are brillant if you dabble in any kind of patchwork. nido’s fat quarter bundles are carefully selected fabrics put together by our staff. Playing around with fabric combinations in a shop full of fun, fresh fabrics is about as good as it gets for fabric lovers like ourselves, and we really enjoy making them.

“Spring Bicycle” is one of our currents favorite combinations.

We also are the digging “Ladybug Patch” bundle.

What do you make with fat quarters?

my first knit sweater part 1

Here is the start of my first EVER knit sweater! Inspired by Stephanie, I have really tried to make a go at knitting this winter. Maybe my sweater knitting is more like leaping in since the Cecchette sweater by Marnie MacLean is knit out of sock yarn. Wish me luck!

peace fleece yarn

nido now carries Peace Fleece yarn from southwestern Maine. A husband and wife team make up the Peace Fleece staff who source wool from farmers and shepherds in eastern Europe, central Asia and the Middle East in an effort to set aside historic differences in hopes to make economic interdependence. Quite a lovely story.

We are currently offering Peace Fleece DK yarn in a variety of colors. Come by and check out what Stephanie is knitting with our new yarns-she is sure to inspire you!
