5 Fun Ways to Use Leftover Thread

January 26, 2018 Megan Eckman

Once you start embroidery, you inevitably attract embroidery thread to you like one of those rare earth magnets. Friends give it to you, it jumps into your cart at the craft store because, "Oooh! Blue!" and you always have some left over after a project.

Now, it's all fine and dandy to hold onto it for other embroidery designs but if you're like me and your thread is starting to feel like the monster in The Blob, then it's time to get proactive.

What's coming up in the club for spring 2018?

January 26, 2018 Megan Eckman

I know. The Super Stitchers' Club is getting really cool. This year I'm pushing out some exciting designs, taking cues from club members to make sure I give you what you want to sew. A beautiful bouquet to get you through the winter? Check! A magical unicorn? Of course! And my husband's favorite: a Rockabilly girl with tattoos!

Studio MME named in Country Living list of 100 Most Creative

January 09, 2018 Megan Eckman

I can't believe that I get to start 2018 like this but Studio MME was featured in this month's Country Living magazine! Our business appeared in their list of 100 Most Creative for 2018!!! The feature celebrates the 100 Movers and Makers who inspired them. I'm so honored and, like the dignified person I am, I promptly ran around Barnes and Noble with my magazine showing it to random people. I even showed my cat twice at home but both times she looked less than impressed. (In fact, she just put her furry behind on the magazine as soon as I set it down.)

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.
