These one-of-a-kind, handmade blouses feature the Zsálya’s crossover neckline and scallop-shaped cuff detail. The sunny, joyful and oh-so-soft fine cotton voile is hand painted and Read More…→
I am returning to normal life but it’s taking a while. Do you ever walk into your office/studio/maker space and feel like you’ve arrived in a little spot of heaven? I missed mine so much this month. School’s back now after our winter break in New York State. This morning I woke up early with my younger daughter (there she is Read More…→
There’s a new place to buy Kate & Rose PDF sewing patterns: in the Indiesew shop! Indiesew founder Allie posted a lovely introduction on the Indiesew blog yesterday.
I especially love the fabrics chosen for the Zsálya blouse sample, they make me think of summer and sunlight and Read More…→
Dear sewing and stitching friends, it is Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and so – thank you. Thank you for all your kindness, and for being my partners in this game of sewing that we play! I am infinitely grateful for all the beautiful blouses, dresses, embroidery you created using all these pattern, large and small, that I so love to make.

Friends, here is the first ever Bloom of the Month embroidery pattern, Snowdrop!
Each Bloom of the Month pattern explores a single motif – folklore-inspired, usually – and/or a single stitching technique. These patterns include one main design that prints cleanly at US Letter or A4 size (should you wish to use your ink jet printer Read More…→
Here’s something I had a little fun with when I was making samples for one of the new hot-iron embroidery transfer sheets (Bewitching Botanicals):
Random stitch sampler! I tried to use quick and casual (and I think easy) stitches, though I did flip through my trusty Embroidery Stitch BibleRead More…→
After yesterday’s launch of the embroidery patterns and hot iron transfers, I’ve added a few more items for some last-minute Christmas shopping. (Wait, you don’t do that? Hmmm…)
There are some more pretty fabrics, folksy ribbons, and more.
Look, even something for a little girl in your life:
These were SUCH a long time in the making. Almost a year and a half, to be precise. But they’re finally here! Folksy hot-iron embroidery transfers, not just one but FOUR sheets:
I couldn’t be more excited. Thrilled even. I’ve been stitching up a storm testing them, prepping sample cloths, and I have to say, this iron-on stuff Read More…→
While working away at one of the several things I’m preparing for you guys (I hope to be ready to announce it soon), I did make progress on the embroidered shoulder pieces for the Róza blouse. In fact, I’m all done with the embroidery. As soon as I get a chance, I’ll sew up the whole blouse and post the pattern for you to download and stitch up. It’s nothing complicated – just a kind of Read More…→
Friends, just a quick note to let you know I did a little update on the PDF version of the Róza pattern.
It now includes a print-at-copyshop option – i.e. a file I formatted so that you can take it to a copyshop and print it out on 36″ (90 cm) wide paper. The Read More…→
Friends, it is that time of year: to buy and make gifts (or just buy and make stuff to a degree never otherwise repeated during the year!).
This year, I’ve put together a holiday shop with a collection of items that would make great gifts for anyone who likes folklore-inspired sewing and embroidery.
The shop is now open, stocked with the Róza pattern (of course!), along with Read More…→
