We Have a New Friend!

Meet our newest Stitch Red partner, KnitCrate!

KnitCrate is a one-of-a-kind subscription service: when you sign up for monthly or bi-monthly deliveries, you get a package full of yarn and goodies - including a few special surprises! - with each mailing.  You can choose between several options, including knit or crochet, and different yarn categories like sock, baby, and indie, which includes specially hand-dyed yarn from indie dyers.

Now, as part of the Stitch Red Campaign, the geniuses behind KnitCrate, Joe and Andrea Raetzer, have created a special Stitch Red item: the Cross My Heart Water Bottle Kit!  The kit includes an exclusive pattern by Libby Summers, 2 hanks of Be Sweet Whipped Cream yarn in a gorgeous red color (also a Stitch Red product!) and Be Sweet Mohair yarn to make a knitted ribbon for the top of the water bottle cover, a 1-liter size Fashy water bottle in an adorable heart shape, and a few other fun extras!  And, they'll donate at least 5% of gross profits to preventing heart disease with Stitch Red and The Heart Truth(R).

Head on over to the KnitCrate site and check them out - and have fun while supporting a great cause!

More Great Sew Red Reviews!

Hi, Everybody!

We've had so many great reviews of Sew Red, I wanted to continue to share them with you.  We're thrilled that so many people have loved the book and patterns, and it's great to see the message of heart disease prevention through crafting making its way around the craft blogs.  Here are a couple more glowing reviews from some of our favorite sewing bloggers!

The first is from Rochelle of the blog Lucky Lucille, a vintage-inspired sewing blog.  Rochelle also knits!  She did a fantastic review of the book and even made one of the projects, the Asian Modern Pillow by Linda Lee.  She put her own spin on the pattern by choosing adorable fabrics in her favorite colors, red and light blue.  We love it!  And isn't her dog, Lucille, gorgeous?

We also had a wonderful review from Jen of Grainline Studios.  I love how she called it a "Book Report" - so cute!  Jen made the Spiral Scarf by Nancy Zieman.  She especially loved the unique construction method for the scarf.  Her project came out beautifully!  Love the colors and styling.

Thanks to Rochelle and Jen for their great reviews and lovely photos!  What have you made lately?  Send us an email at info@stitchred.com - we'd love to see your projects!
