Introducing Pins + Needles

Brittany from Pins+Needles Kits is a supplier member in our group. Pins+Needles is a monthly subscription-based crafting/sewing company based in Texas.  The company is the brainchild of Brittany and co-founder, Kellie. Kellie is a sewing teacher and very experienced and savvy sewing lady, and Brittany was a sewing enthusiast with no sewing experience who became quickly frustrated with ambitious projects.

With the help of Kellie, Brittany learned that by completing smaller projects she not only felt a sense of accomplishment for finishing them, but also still became more excited about sewing while improving her skills at the same time.

That’s when Pins + Needles Kits was born: the creation of two women with a passion to create and a desire to make sewing and crafting projects easier for all ages and all levels of  sewing experience.

Brittany and Kellie envisioned an easy way for customers to purchase sewing projects online that can be delivered straight to your doorstep. We love happy mail, right?

They combined monthly deliveries of fully curated projects that are easy, simple, and fun.  A monthly delivery that is a handcrafted surprise by you!  Happy Mail always welcomed!

If you are interested in a sewing subscription box, please visit the Pins + Needles website where you can sign up. Every month your kit will include a complete project that includes pattern, fabrics to complete the pattern, thread and any extra notion required of the pattern.

A Tale of a Fabric Nightmare

houseScary movies–bring it.  Stephen King novels–yes! Haunted house tours–I live in Louisiana near The Myrtles Plantation and not too far from New Orleans’ infamous spooky graveyards–absolutely!  Mess with my fabric, and I wither like a dead spider.
