Still looking for the perfect holiday gift? There's a little time left.

If you didn't get a chance to purchase a great gift for someone (or yourself), I just wanted to let you know 3 important dates to ensure your package arrives on time.

  1. Thursday, December 7th - International shipping cut-off
  2. Sunday, December 17th - USPS 1st class shipping cut-off 
  3. Tuesday, December 19th - USPS Priority shipping cut-off

Free shipping starts today! Black Friday 2017

November 24, 2017 Megan Eckman

From today until Monday, November 27th, enjoy free shipping on everything in the shop. There are no codes to enter and no gimmicks to get the free shipping. Just shop with ease and sit back knowing they're shipping ASAP for free. Awesome!

Even more awesome? I'm donating 10% of the profits to Last Chance for Animals. It's the best charity for helping animals around the world so you can give yourself a high-five for being a great person.

The Salty Sailor launches today as well so be sure to grab him before he's gone. He was so popular with my club that I don't know how fast he'll sell out.

P.S. Hoping for an even bigger deal in a few weeks? This is the only sale for the holiday season so there's no need to hold out for a last minute steal.


My 2017 Gift Guide. Just in case you weren't sure which kit to gift.

Are you doing finger exercises to keep your digits limber? Have you stocked up on tea and apple cider to help push through a crafting marathon? Then all you need is a stack of holiday gifts to sew!

I'm playing Santa's helper this year and sharing my personal picks for everyone on your list. I know you're likely going to be stitching these up for presents but you can also gift these kits as is. Consider it my Christmas miracle. 

I'm changing up Black Friday this year.

By now you've already been informed that yes, you ARE coming to Thanksgiving dinner and yes, you're bringing the stuffing. (Not that fancy one from Sunset magazine either with the hazelnuts and organic turkey broth but the stuffing Grandma made with Wonder Bread.) You've also already been hit up by 800 ads for the upcoming Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.

This year, I'm changing things up for my Black Friday sale.


My favorite things to watch and listen while stitching up holiday gifts

November 18, 2017 Megan Eckman

It's November. It's November! How is it already November!? Oh my gosh, I have so many gifts to start sewing for the holidays. I'm guessing you're in the same boat. Okay, just breathe. We're going to get through this and we won't even bleed on a piece this year. (Sorry again, new sister-in-law.)

I've been prepping for 'embroidery extravaganza' for a few weeks now and have compiled a list of things to watch and listen to while I sew. This way I don't waste an hour trying to find something every time I sit down.

I thought I'd share my list with you so you can get a good start on your sewing projects as well. So here we go!
