What's New At Sew Inspired

Here are a few things new in the shop!

Drift by Angela Walters (Art Gallery Fabrics)
A beautiful new line by Angela Walters called Drift, inspired by her trip to St. John's Island. We have the Ocean palette in our store, in lovely tints of fresh blues and delicate greens.

Swim Team by Dinara Mirtalopova (Windham Fabrics)
How hilarious is Swim Team!!! This delightful summer group by Dinara Mirtalipova features ladies sunbathing on the beach and swimming with fish. We think they'd make the best beach totes this summer!

I Love America Quilt Kit and Creative Grids 8" Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool
Show your patriotic side with this adorable I Love America quilt kit! We've cut strips of reds, whites and blues for you to make a small quilt / wall hanging with the 8" Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool.

We've also closed our first giveaway for the Into The Woods charm pack, and the winner is Linda Garcia! Look out for an email in your inbox! And a big thank you to everyone who participated :)

Spring Quilt Market, And A Giveaway!

David L. Lawrence Convention Center 
It's time for Spring Quilt Market again, and this time round, Vivian, Linda and Gaby (Viv's daughter) are making the fun trip to Pittsburgh, PA! Make sure join them on their travels by following our Instagram feed on the right, or by following us on the app on your mobile device.

There are so many things to watch out for at Quilt Market, and because this is Linda and Gaby's first time to Market, Viv is very excited to see their reactions, especially to Sample Spree. She's also looking forward to attending the FabShop Network dinner (a trade association of other quilt shop owners) to see what's going on with other quilt shops around the country and seeing the upcoming collections from the new RJR division called Cotton & Steel.

We'd love for everyone to join in the fun, so we're doing a little giveaway of some treats that Vivian will bring home with her!

To kick things off, here's a charm pack of Into the Woods by Vanessa Goertzen up for grabs!

To enter the giveaway, simply:
1. Follow us;
2. Comment and let us know that you're following us! (Please make sure you include your email address!)

We'll leave the giveaway open until the end of Thursday May 22, and winners will be announced Friday May 23! Good luck, and thanks for playing!

New BOM: Wine Country Sunset in Mulberry

We're currently taking names for a new Block of the Month (BOM) called Wine Country Sunset in the Tonga Mulberry colorway. This beautiful queen-size quilt (90" square) was designed by Cheryl Malkowski and features batiks from Timeless Treasures. The pattern also includes a bonus pattern for a wine bottle tote!

The techniques used in the quilt are simple -- the most difficult technique found in the pattern is the half-square triangle! -- and it includes tips, tricks and many illustrations to make it beginner friendly. However, if you would prefer some help with cutting, there will be an optional cutting session on the first Thursday of every month of the 6-month long program beginning in June 2014. There will be a fee of $75.00, and this includes all six cutting sessions.

If you'd like to sign up for the Wine Country Sunset BOM, or would like more information, you can call the shop at 860-651-8885 or email us at

The Blog Is Back!

After a very long hiatus, we're thrilled to announce that our blog is back!

The Dwell quilt pattern (from Simply Retro) being quilted on the Handi Quilter -- fat quarter bundles available

As always, this will be a source of information on what's going on at the shop, and upcoming events, but we will also be including quilting tips, Q&As with staff and teachers, show and tell with quilts customers have made with our fabric, and other tidbits that we think you might find interesting!

Please be sure to follow us because to kick off our new blog, we will be hosting a giveaway next week!

In the meantime, you can also follow us on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook.
