Book launch & Stitch`n`Bitch with Leanne Prain - Free Pattern download

Join Leanne Prain (co-author of Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti) Sunday, October 2, at 2:00pm at McNally Robinson for a book launch and stitch and bitch.

Leanne, along with Winnipeg contributor and fibre artist Takashi Iwasaki, will be celebrating the launch of her new book Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery which profiles the world`s most provocative embroidery artists and includes 28 patterns for readers to create.

The event includes a visual talk about subversive embroidery and yarn bombing, as well as a book signing and stitch ‘n’ bitch. Bring your projects/crewel intentions and get down to the knitty-gritty with Leanne following the talk and book signing.  The event will also include a door prize draw of embroidery schwag from floss sponsor DMC.

They are offering a free pattern from the book - the Home Invasion project which involves stitching insect intruders onto already embroidered linens in the home—place mats, table cloths, pillow cases, etc.

New Silhouette Studio Cutting file set

I recieved a request to make the Monogram alphabet cutting file set without the split. It is available for sale in my store at Monogram Silhouette Cutting File set.

These would be great on a tile, a  mirror, a wall on a clear plate - a wonderful gift for someone special.

A little Freebie Cutting File

I thought it was about time I offered a little freebie. It's a Scallop Top Treat Box in SVG and SCAL2 format.

I would love to see what you make with it. Post a link to your image in a comment so we can all see.

Watch for more creations (Printables and Cuttables) over the next week or two - Fall, Halloween and Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by.
