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?
Lotta Jansdotter’s newest collection, Glimma hit the shelves yesterday at nido.
Glimma is a collection of Lotta’s classic prints mixed in with her most recent designs.
There are also 6 prints in a canvas weight and 4 matching solids!
This Sunday is nido’s annual St. Patrick’s Day sale. Come in and enjoy 20% off anything green. As always, if it has green on it, even if it’s just a spot, it’s fair game!
There are so many fabrics to choose from.
We carry 5 different shades of Swans Island yarn alone! There are also other green yarns by different companies including, Green Mountain Mohair, Peace Fleece and Jamie Rainbow.
And now would be the time to stock up on sewing and knitting notions, including our fabulous project bag! MOST of the packaging is green so you know what that means.
See you on Sunday!
Next on the needles is the Juliette Scarf by Swans Island in their NEW lace weight yarn. SO excited for this one!
nido just received a shipment of a TON of Swans Island’s NEW lace weight yarn in a variety of colors sure to please everyone! This is a wonderfully soft lace weight yarn with great yardage. The base is 50% merino wool and 50% tussah silk. Tussah silk is a sustainable material that is harvested after the butterfly has already left the cocoon.
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!
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!
