Free Scissor Sharpening at Hip Stitch
FREE Sewing Scissor Sharpening
Drop offs now. Free sewing scissor sharpening is next Saturday, February 23rd.

Let Jeremi use his "Twice as Sharp" system to make your favorite sewing scissors better than new.

Just another way we save you money on the "not so fun" parts of your hobby so that you have more for the fabrics that inspire you. Tell your friends about Hip Stitch, the store that gives you more.

(Not to put too fine a point (edge?) on it, but Jeremi's daughter Gabby is selling Girl Scout cookies. The order form is here at the store. 8-year-old Gabby has set a goal of 1,000. She wasn't specific if that was cookies or boxes, or for the troop as a whole or just herself.

If you're needing wanting some Thin Mints or some Samoas or any of the other inferior cookies get your name on the form when you drop off your scissors. No pressure. But let your conscience be your guide.)

Make Yourself at Home
Kimberbelles! The fabric has arrived, the kits are bring made....have you ordered yours?
Featherweight restorations at Hip Stitch ABQ
No lemons. Solid refurb's . . .
Another Singer Featherweight Model 221 has found it's "forever home." This bumble bee will now buzzing for S.C.., who prefers to remain anonymous, due, almost certainly, to the obvious value of her new prize Featherweight.

(Arriving today -- a custom-painted Featherweight with a dragon motif. There WILL be photos of this one to show, in pieces, as Jeremi's work in progress and in it's final fire-breathing glory.)
You aren't limited by what the fabric design houses have to offer. We have some of the freshest stamps and "of the moment" colors of fabric paints so you can create your own fabric. Shop from many designs we have in stock.

Reut will be teaching stamping methods on Make It Night Feb. 21 - it's currently sold out, but she has plans for more classes in stamping. You'll get the tips and tricks which will allow you to make your own custom fabrics.

See the samples which Reut has made and you'll be inspired to create truly unique textiles for your own quilts, clothing or other projects.

Newest, freshest fabrics!
Cantik Batiks
Imported from British Columbia, Canada, these beautiful batiks are unique and more lovely in person than the pictures, can possibly show -- the richness and depth of color is only hinted at here.

Ordered by our "buying team" at Quilt Market Houston in Fall 2018, we've been waiting eagerly for them to arrive. They're now here!
