Hermes Shoes


In honor of National Craft Month, we’ll be linking to some of the brilliant crafts we come across online. I love this so much it almost makes me wish I had a toddler again! It’s by Roubidou and part of Made By Rae’s awesome Celebrate the Boy series.

TCL vendor Heather Valentine on


The work of Heather Valentine, founder of The Sewing Loft, is a featured photo today on This is the THIRD time Martha has featured Heather’s adorable plush creations! We’re not surprised, though, as her work could not be cuter.




We are thrilled to be carrying her woodland toadstool and owl backpacks, sweet dolls with embroidered dresses, and guilt-free felt doughnuts (in a real pastry box!). In addition to being cute cute cute, items from The Sewing Loft are made using reclaimed, recycled materials – totally TCL!

Out with the old and in with the re-newed, as we craft our way into a green 2011! This winter, join us as we make beads out of paper and create new jewelry out of broken and neglected old pieces. It’s always fun to be eco-friendly at TCL! We’ve also added day and night sections of our knit and crochet workshops, in several different levels — something for every busy schedule.  So, start your year off right by treating yourself or someone you love (classes make a great last-minute holiday gift!) to one of our great workshops: TCL Class Schedule

Roz & Amy like their pincushions!

Special thanks to Martha Stewart and her new book, MARTHA STEWART’S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SEWING AND FABRIC CRAFTS.   We had a swell time making these adorable tomato pincushions.
