Christmas Stocking Project

Recently, we received a request for assistance with collecting homemade Christmas Stockings for distribution to foster children in the Kona area of the Big Island. We agreed and are hoping that our amazing sewing community can find just a few minutes of time to help us help others this holiday season.

All of our stores will be collecting homemade Christmas Stockings now through December 15. However, there are multiple ways that you and your loved ones can help!

Halloween Postcard Heading to Homes!

Are you a VIC member? Do we have your mailing address on file? Then you should be getting our Halloween Postcard Mailer in your mailbox very soon! The mailers are estimated to be arriving in homes on Monday (October 17) or Tuesday (October 18). But if you don’t want the physical mailers, don’t worry, we have the postcard here for you!

If you don’t receive your postcard by Friday, October 21, 2022 and you would like our physical mailers or you have recently changed your mailing address, please let us know by filling out our Mailer Update Request form. We would appreciate you making sure that you include both your previous address as well as your new address (if you are changing your address). Although we are unable to send you the postcard, we will update your address in the system (or verify that what we have on our end is the same as the address you provide) so that you receive our next mailer. If you have any questions, please email us at

Hilo Warehouse Sale 2022!

It’s back! We’re opening the doors to our Hilo Warehouse for One Day Only! This huge sale hasn’t been held in a few years and with the amount of work it takes to get the warehouse ready for it, it may not happen again for a few more years, so don’t miss out! 

The normally closed to the public, the warehouse located directly across from DFW entrance is open to the public for One Day Only – October 08, 2022 from 9AM – 6PM!
This is a BULK sale – not for everyone – with a min. of 5 yard cut . Some items are sold by full bolt or roll only.

Here’s the newest update from Bill!

Everything offered for sale in the district warehouse located across the entrance to DFW Hilo is 50% off or more!
1,000’s and 1,000’s of yards of almost every kind of fabric imaginable! Huge inventory of home decor, upholstery, drapery/slipcover, tropical, curtains, black out, Name brand cotton prints, licensed prints NFL prints, vinyl, muslin, canvas, head liner, dress fabric, mesh, cotton linen – assorted, assorted, assorted!

New section this time:  $1 per piece up to 3yds in length – no cutting no measuring – just $1 per piece!

We are still cleaning up and gearing up for this sale – not much advertising this year so it’s unclear how big a crowd we will have. In the past, the 1st two hours have been busy and the last two fairly tame with the hours in between – somewhere in the middle. If you want the best selection come early grab a cart and take your time. This is a “hunt”!

Things are not presented for retail, it is a warehouse so things are set up that way – not like a store- we won’t have staff to walk with you or take you to a particular type of fabric – it is a hunt! With treasures to be found! If you hate crowds, we would suggest for you to come a bit later. You may not have as wide of a selection, but you’ll still be able to find some awesome things!
We will have staff to help you take a roll off a shelf and put it in a cart or take it to the cutting table. Just not our normal level of customer service.

Notions and surprises – you never know what fun unexpected unique items we will add in (time and space permitting)! Like patterns for $1, or real leather hides and 1/2 hides, or ? You will just have to come by and see!
9-6 Saturday October 8th! ONE DAY ONLY! No, we cannot take orders over the phone. No, we cannot take pictures of any of the fabrics and send it to you. You’ll need to be there to see what we have and to purchase!

Miss it and you’ve have to wait at least a year until the next sale! It has been 3 years since our last sale and it might be 3 or more before our next one. Don’t miss this one!

Keiki Blanket Drive

One of our favorite things to do is support organizations that help keiki in need. Throughout the year, our Hilo and Kona stores collect blankets for Project Linus. However, we want to make sure that blankets that come in to our stores get distributed to organizations within the communities that surround them.

This year’s Keiki Blanket Drive will run from September 01, 2022 through November 01, 2022. We encourage you to bring in kid-friendly blankets for donation to organizations like Project Linus who will pass them on to children in need of a little comfort when faced with an unfamiliar situation.

You heard it here first!

It’s almost fall! And with the changing of the season comes an entirely new wardrobe. But we know that the best clothes are those made right at home, with lots of love put into the – just like a good batch of brownies! 

Ready to inject your fall wardrobe with a lot of style and a healthy dose of love? Read on for sewing tips from the experts! 

1.) Whatever you do, DON’T watch the needle! 

I know, I know, it’s so tempting! But watching the needle can be a massive distraction when you’re attempting to sew in a straight line. So, to help make sure your stitching doesn’t come out looking like a drunk trying to walk a tightrope, watch the marks that are on your throat plate guide! 

2.) Keep your presser foot UP when threading with your sewing machine. 

When your presser foot is down, you’re creating tension in the machine, which makes it a million times harder to thread. This seems like it should be simple, but so often we forget and naturally press our foot down! Make an effort to keep it up or off the presser to have an easier time threading. 

3.) The thread goes forward – never, EVER pull it backwards! 

It’s tempting to want to de-thread your machine in whatever way seems the easiest at the moment. Backwards forwards, up, down, sideways (okay, maybe not those last three). But when pulling thread backwards out of your machine, you’ll cause lint to rub off and get absolutely everywhere, creating buildup. 

Ready to take your learning even further? You’re in luck, because our Fall class calendar is now available! From beginner to expert level, there are classes for every sewer in the world!
