bits & bobs :: mother's day gift ideas

  • need a super-quick and easy gift for mother's day? gift cardsare great! 
    give your mom the gift of creativity, encourage her to slow down, get cozy, get crafty, AND let her choose her favorite kit. everybody wins!
    gift cards never expire, and they can be used for anything in my shop (excludes PDF patterns and stitch club subscriptions).
     

  • if you'd rather stitch something up for her, check out my free 'mom tattoo' pattern.

    (i also understand that this can be a tricky holiday. and maybe YOU are the mom who needs a little extra love and indulging. go ahead and treat yourself to some creative self-care.)
     

  • tulip needles are some of my favorite embroidery tools to use, and they recently announced a price increase. as a result, the price is going up from $8.50 to $9.60. that's still a good price for a tube of 8 super high-quality imported needles. but if you want to snag some before the price goes up, now is the time. you'll see the price change in my supply shop beginning on 5.13.19.
     

  • speaking of favorite tools, i recently discovered this handy tool: a needle-puller, thread cutter, and thimble, all in one. so clever! never again will i use pliers to pull a stubborn needle through thick fabric.
