Friends, Fun, and Learning!

We have new toys on the site! And when I say “we”, what I really mean is that Lorna and Judy have ordered toys for the site. They love toys from eeBoo —they’re pretty and sturdy and smart— and they know some of you do as well.

Bear got to open the Solar System Puzzle yesterday.

His friends came over to play with him. You can feel the puzzle coming together,

They are very cute, and the puzzle is entertaining.

They were super excited to read the facts on the puzzle that explain the solar system in clear language. Isn’t if great when fun and learning come together!

Jim, the pillow—Part 1…

I’m making a pillow featuring my cat Jim and I thought it would be fun to share the idea and techniques. In case some of you don’t catch my Time Outs in other places (YouTube, Facebook, and now IGTV), here is Part 1 where I show you how you can get a drawing of your own special pet.

Wednesday Giveaway!

Lori T is the Winner of this week’s giveaway. She will receive 2 packages of Painters Flower Thread in the Matisse (Christmas Red) color. Flower thread is 100% cotton that is NOT mercerized, which gives it a matte finish to use with wool or for embroidery where you want a non-reflective thread. (Click here for more information and to see other colors we have in stock.)

I’ll be back with another Giveaway next Wednesday. Until then you can shop for all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at pieceocake.com!

Wednesday Giveaway Winner! – Congrats, Melanie Rinks!

Last week’s newsletter included a video on needles, how to identify them and why a particular one might be the best choice for a given project. Our Giveaway – Side Threading Needle – continues that theme. This needle is perfect for burying the tails of thread that happen during machine quilting. And, if you have failing eyesight but still want to sew, these needles will make you happy.

The package comes with 12 needles in assorted sizes. The needles are sturdy and a little thicker than normal.

I’ll be back with another Giveaway next Wednesday. Until then you can shop for all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at pieceocake.com!

Exclusive New Mugs from Rebecca Livingston

I wish you could hold one of these mugs right now because once you do, you know why they are so very special. Rebecca made these blue and white (with a touch of green) mugs just for Piece O’ Cake. Quantities are very limited and I don’t know when we can get more. Click here to find the mugs.

If you tried to order when I posted the video, they showed as sold out. That was my fault… there were buttons I failed to push. We do still have some as I post this. Click here to find the mugs.

Present-giving season is upon us and these special mugs make perfect gifts for your favorite people. Who knows, you might need to gift one to yourself!
