After launching our Swatch of the Month Club in January, we received several requests for a more accessible way to sample a variety of our techniques before investing in a club membership. Our commitment to listening to your feedback and, in turn, giving better service, led us to create the Starter Sewing Kit.
Our Starter Sewing Kit includes three 10” x 16” pieces of organic cotton jersey: one un-stenciled piece for your bottom layer in Black, and two additional 10” x 16” pieces in Slate and Twilight. The Slate fabric is painted on the wrong side—for use as appliqué. Use the stenciled Twilight piece for your top layer, suitable for reverse appliqué.
Featuring our basic Bloomers design, this kit is perfect for the first-time or beginning sewer. Practice various stitches, embroidery techniques, and treatments, as illustrated in our Studio Book series. Each kit comes stenciled and ready-to-sew with all of the notions needed to complete the swatch.
