Sonja had a fantastic idea to attach elastic to a round of oilcloth to make a fitted table cover.
This is definitely on my list of projects to make!

Best of Treadle on Flickr

If you haven't heard of Flickr, it is a user-friendly online site for folks to store pictures.
It's also a great way to see what other folks are making, baking, traveling, seeing and shooting (camera-wise that is.)

Treadle Yard Goods has a group page on Flickr for folks to share what they're sewing with Treadle fabrics, and starting today, we'll showcase the best of those photos on this blog.

It's free to join Flickr (Treadle Yard Goods is not affiliated with Flickr, I just use it personally, and I like the way it works) and we'll ask your permission to use any photo before we blog about it.

When we see fabric leaving the store we often wish folks would bring in a photo of their finished projects.
So, join in and let everyone see the great things that you all are sewing!

Little Folks

We have just received the new Little Folks line of fabric from the very talented Anna Maria Horner.
I am especially enamored of the Forest Hills print. The new pieces are all in a voile weight, perfect for a blouse or lightweight dress for that tiny lady in your life.
It's never too early to start sewing for Spring!

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

In October, Saint Paul was host to the team from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

If you tune in tonight, see if you can spot the fabrics from Treadle!

Mary generously donated fabric, and a couple of Treadlettes donated their time to help with the makeover for the very deserving Morris family of Saint Paul.
