High Summer

It's been a busy, hot and productive season for Bucklebee this year! We've visited sewing and quilt guilds, enjoyed meeting new friends at two quilt shows, and we're busy getting merchandise ready for the Pennsylvania National Extravaganza in Oaks, PA, in September. We love quilters--so our newest pattern is a quilter's delight. Stowaway is a pretty, hard-working, versatile organizer designed to get you to class, retreat, vacation or guild meeting in style.

Although it folds into a tidy 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" package, it has a full dozen pockets, safe storage for sharp tools, a pressing pad that reverses to a non-slip workspace, and plenty of ingenious and useful features for quilters on-the-go. It's easy to make, and fun to embellish. Check out the pattern in the Bucklebee Pattern Shop. While you're there, peek at our Skipjack Zipper Pouch Pattern. It's designed especially for washable paper, a hot new substrate that looks and feels like leather but sews like fabric. It's tough, fun to work with, and wears especially well.
