Samples Worth Writing About: Landgate Jacket and Factotum Bag

Creating samples to inspire the various crafters and would-be crafters who visit us is one of the best parts of having a brick and mortar. We stock so many different patterns and we truly believe there is something for everyone to create. And something aspirational on the shelves, too. Like Merchant and Mills Landgate Jacket. This popover is made in Merchant and Mills Dry Oilskin and is not for the faint of heart. While not fitted, it does require a decent understanding of construction and the center front 1/4 zip gives even the most confident hobby stitcher pause. But we...

March 2023 - We Care Wednesday

The vision for Neighborhood Birth Center (NBC) is rooted in the belief that people should have access to a full range of pregnancy care and birthing options. They believe that birth is a sacred process, and when the pregnant person is centered, the experience has the power to transform and heal individuals, families, and communities. NBC's mission is to offer comprehensive midwifery care throughout pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period in a safe and comfortable community-based setting.

With over 9000 workplaces...

January 2023 - We Care Wednesday

We are so excited to be continuing this initiative in 2023! Last year we donated over $15,000 to various nonprofits and mutual aid organizations thanks to your generosity. Whenever you make a purchase on Wednesday (in the store or online) we donate 5% of the day's profits to that month's recipient. In the last couple of years we have been working with Aeolidia on our email marketing and they encouraged us to incentivize less engaged customers by offering some reward. Most businesses do a discount code, we chose to donate 5% of the sale to the We Care Wednesday fund,...
