More New Books!

We are so excited about tons of new books. Tons! Here is a peak of some of the newest and craftiest and hot-off-the-press craft books.


These super cute little books were originally published in Japanese. They were just published for the first time in English. Sweet! Now you can get super hot Japanese craft style without having to learn Japanese!

I love knitting socks from the toe up, but finding cute patterns is not so easy. So, I'm really excited about this Socks From The Toe Up by Wendy Johnson. If I can nerd out for just a bit--I mean this is kind of amazing--this book has awesome instructions with diagrams for five different seamless cast-ons, three types of heels and three stretchy bind-offs for comfy fit. She goes over for knitting socks on double points, on two circulars as well as with the magic loop method. PLUS, there are tons of cute sock patterns. Dang. This book is super sweet.


These quilts are adorable. Super adorable. We are in love with the baby bumper embroidered with woodland creatures. There are tons of modern quilt patterns simple enough for a beginner quilter. I kinda want to make myself one in grown-up size.

This may be the manliest crafting book ever. I mean, there is a chapter titled Axe Craft. Perhaps you'd like to make your lady a log cabin birdhouse with your axe? Or maybe she'd prefer some handcrafted dinnerware hammered from tin cans? No problem.

The sewing patterns in Felt Furnishings are modern and minimal, but oh so warm and cozy. The projects include tons of awesome throw pillows, blankets and lampshades, table linens and house slippers. The sculptural designs really show off the unique properties of working with felt. Wondering where to get felt? We've got loads of pretty colors of felt by the yard in the store and more are arriving this week!


Well, those are some of the tons of new books. But, seriously, we got tons so come in and check out all the excitement.
