The Weekly Tangle

Friedlander patterns, Rowan 61, upcoming classes, and this week's new yarns.

New patterns and fabric from Carolyn Friedlander

We just received a set of patterns from fabric designer Carolyn Friedlander that compliment her marvelous Friedlander Collection fabric line. These patterns are contemporary, yet classic, making them perfect for heirloom projects. These projects are suitable for beginner piecers as well as veteran quilters.


Handmaiden's Maiden Hair is simply beautiful and makes even the most simple of knitting projects gorgeous, soft, and a wardrobe staple. We're dreaming of knitting up a light spring scarf in this creamy white. Fibre content 67% Silk, 23% Kid Mohair, 10% Nylon.

Freia Ombré Fingering is a gorgeous single ply available in many vibrant ombre colourways. This yarn reveals its beauty as your project progresses and the ombre colours transition. It is an excellent choice for scarves and other accessories.

You've been asking, and we're happy to announce we now have a full inventory of Prym embroidery hoops in all sizes, even the most petite. These high quality hoops will hold your projects secure with their solid beechwood frame and adjustable brass screws.

Never cut up a sewing pattern again! Instead, trace your patterns on our brand new Sewable Swedish Tracing paper to check fit and design elements before cutting your beautiful fabric. This innovative product will save you so much time as it doubles as your muslin.

Our new Mokuba cotton ribbons are beautifully soft and are excellent for adding a polished finish to sewn garments. We like to use them to finishing hems and collars.

This week we're loving the 100% cotton Tapestry Loom Warping Thread from Ashford. It's super strong and a perfect base tapestry and rigid heddle weaving.

Rowan's Magazine 61 offers 30 transeasonal designs in classic summer yarns such as Summerlite 4-Ply and Rowan Softyak DK. This collection is classic and elegant, featuring patterns for women, men and children, and is focused on lightweight and drapey knits that are perfect for summer.

Weather these days can be unpredictable, so we love a project that can do double duty on chilly or warmer days. The Grace Handwarmers pattern knit in Koigu KPM or Lang Cashmere Premium is available FREE on Ravelry! Get it here.

Upcoming Classes: Embroidery and Rigid Heddle Weaving

We have a few spaces remaining in our two week introduction to embroidery class Sunday, April 9 & 23! Join our instructor to learn the techniques and stitches that will let you create your own custom embroidered masterpiece! 

We have our first ever two week rigid heddle weaving class coming up soon on April 11 & 18! This two week class will teach you the techniques to create your own woven garments and accessories using a rigid heddle loom. By the end of the class, you will leave with a ready to wear hand-woven scarf!
