We are in the mood for all stitching


It looks like cooler weather may be on the horizon.  We're not trying to rush winter but these over 90 temps with humidity zap our energy and stamina.  

Kay will be packing Tuesday, Aug 31 for the Pittsburg KS show.  If you'd like her to bring something special, please e-mail by Aug 30.  With the cost of postage the money you save on shipping costs could mean an extra money for an extra item in your shopping bag.  

Kay will be showing our newest block of the month at the show in Pittsburg.  We'll give a involves wool applique, Jan Patek and winter.  

For more info about the show, please visit

When Debby saw "The Big Book of Hand Embroidery" book she immediately put a copy on order.  We are finalizing our order so if you'd like a copy please e-mail  The book contains 52 projects in a variety of finishing techniques from some of our favorite designers including Gail pan, Robin Kingsley, Kathy Schmitz, Anni Downs and Lynette Anderson.  224 pages Softcover $27.99

Mr Owl is a whimsical fall small quilt.  Your $17.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top, wool for applique, borders, binding and backing fabric.  If you'd like us to put together a thread kit containing the Valdani perle cotton Debby used to stitch the sample, let us know when you place your order.  

14" x 16"

Another fun fall themed project is Grateful, Thankful and Blessed.  Your $18.95 kit includes the pattern with our changes, wool for applique, fabrics for the top and binding.
Last but not least we want to share Threads that Bind's "Best of Show" kit.  We found four more patterns in our warehouse so made kits.  Fabrics and wools will vary from those shown but we have put together a pretty piece.  The background is cotton homespun and the applique is wool.  Your $30.95 kit includes the pattern,  background fabric and wool.  We framed ours in a 16" x 20" frame.  
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section we are featuring our last two "Hoot the Owl" kits.  Kit includes pattern, background cotton, wool for applique (please note some wool may not be the exact wool we used in our sample) and backing fabric.  $19.95

For planning purposes - Sew Graceful will be closed Saturday, Sep 4 for Labor Day weekend.  

Hope to see you soon.
