'Walk In The Woods' arrived today.

Look what came this morning!! The full range of Walk In The Woods by Aneela Hoey. This whole range is just fantastic, my favourite has to be the apples and toadstools with the little birds.

While I was taking the pictures for the shop, look who came for a little peak, a Ladybird!

All this fabric will be listed in the shop over the weekend. If there is any particular combinations you want then comment or email and we'll get straight back to you.

Our Story

Pin It and Stitch was created in January 2012 by two sisters who love to sew, quilt and hunt for vintage treasures. We are obsessed with fabric, buttons, cotton and notions.

Our intention is to share our passion for Fresh, Funky and Modern quilting and aim to provide everything you could possibly desire to complete your projects.

Our family has always been our inspiration. Our Grandma was ‘In Service’ sewing for people in their homes, tailoring, dressmaking and alterations.

Our Mum, as a child handmade her dolls clothes and once she was old enough to use a machine she made all her own clothes and her wedding dress. When we came along she made our clothes including leotards, ballet tutus and an array of our many random requests.

Mum would spend hours teaching us both how to sew, passing on her knowledge. Our Aunty started sewing at the age of 14, her first job was in the rag trade making children’s clothes and samples for fashion designers. She also studied dressmaking and tailoring to enable her to teach others and introduced us to the world of quilting.

Without their inspiration and patience we would never have inherited this love of fabric which has resulted in ‘Pin It and Stitch’ being created.

We would like to say a huge thank you to our families, friends and everyone who has contributed towards making this happen.

Grow With Me.

All the lovely "Grow With Me" is listed in the Etsy Shop ***Ebay Shop***. I've got and idea of a little project that I want to try using these Cheeky Monkeys but I have to make a purchase first. I also love these Chickens as well, wouldn't they make lovely little bags for Easter?

My Goal for today is to get all the Sweetwater Reunion Listed in the shop. I've made a start and it is achievable as the boys have no football this weekend! This range is also beautiful. I've started a quilt for my Dad using one of our scrapbags and now we have the bolts of fabric I can finish it.

Hope you all have a crafty weekend.

In The Shop.

Well I slaved away and the Pezzy Print is now listed in the etsy shop. The Grow with me is still in progress and should all be listed by Monday, but if there's anything you particularily want then convo us and we'll do a custom listing for you.

Just to keep me busy in the meantime though, look what arrived this afternoon......

Reunion by Sweetwater! We've been waiting for this to arrive as we are making a quilt using one of our scrapbags and needed some fabric to finish it off. Now all I have to do is to choose which one to cut into first. A busy weekend ahead.
