Are you ready to start making some stuff for the holidays? Because we totally are. As someone who is perpetually a dollar short and a day late, I have to start on my holiday gifts EARLY because once Thanksgiving comes around - Bam! - it’s the holiday season before I’m ready!
Here are some of our favorite holiday classes - we hope to see you in one or all of them!

Our good friends over at Culture Pilot have upgraded our calendar to making finding your perfect class much easier - we love the new, colorful, super awesome calendar! What do you think? Let us know below!
You might be thinking - whaaa? Well a Jelly Roll is a big, honkin’ roll of adorable fabric all packaged together - ditto for the Layer Cake, which is the same, but packaged as flat pieces of fabric! Crafters can use these awesome little packs for quilting or for small projects, like this one from the Moda Bake Shop!
Why, hello there! If you’re reading this, then you know of the amazing awesomeness that is Sew Crafty, and you may or may not have personally run into the amazing awesomeness that is Sarah, chief craftess. (Though it does not say this on her business card, it definitely should. Vote?)
I have been lucky enough to experience the awesomeness explosion of Sarah, Sew Crafty and the amazing people who come through the doors every day. A knit Bender, for Pete’s sake? You people rock.
Since Sarah has given me the - dare I say it? - awesome opportunity to post in her absence (a wise decision? Hmmmmmm…time shall tell.) I thought I would just stop in and say hello. Sooo…
I’m Erin, and I normally blog here, because I am (almost disgustingly) lucky enough to work here. I’m (sort of) new to crafting - like Sarah, I crafted a lot as a kid, though I didn’t call it that. And though most of my childhood projects have faded with time, I can still claim an absolutely fabulous (and very tasteful) cross-stitch of three sheep in a bathtub, under the heading “baaaaathroom in use” (get it?). Which my mother still proudly displays.
In the bathroom.
No one keeps you humble like Mom, right? But, since Sew Crafty opened back in May, I’ve added to the bathroom collection - making a tote bag, some sweet Gocco dinosaur stationery and a craft apron - along with some lovely tissue paper flowers at the grand opening a few weeks ago. (Did you stop by? What did you think? I thought it was fabulous, of course - but I think we’ve established that I am a bit biased.) I’ve been traveling for work recently, so I haven’t made it over as often as I would like - but I am definitely looking forward to getting to know all of you here for the next few weeks (or at least until Sarah reads this, gasps, and deletes my admin account. )
Yes - it counts! Cooking is crafty in essence… especially when it’s creative! Maybe your favorite grilled cheese doesn’t fall into this category, but some of these are definitely craftastic!
