I Love Cuddle® Kits Giveaway with Shannon Fabrics

It’s no secret how much our team loves sewing with Cuddle® fabrics. This minky, plush fabric from Shannon Fabrics is so soft and perfect for a variety of projects, especially items for babies and children.

We’ve partnered with Shannon Fabrics again this year for our live and in-person events and retreats. Martha Pullen Co. instructor Connie Palmer, our team’s expert on sewing with Cuddle®, even teaches a fantastic Cuddle® Blanket Workshop at the Original Sewing & Quilt EXPO. Registration is open for her class at the Arlington EXPO in August. You can make a baby-sized blanket in class – a perfect gift any time of year – as you explore Connie’s tried-and-true methods for cutting, stitching and controlling the fuzz. Of course, many of your other favorite Martha Pullen instructors will be teaching at the Arlington EXPO, too: Kathy McMakin, Alicia Welcher, Libby Ashcraft and even Martha Pullen herself! You can also join us for the exclusive EXPO “pre-retreat” — the Heirloom and Beyond: Essentials to Indulgences licensing event. We hope to see you in Arlington!
