Sunday Night at the Sawmill November 4
Busy busy day!
Let’s jump right into it. Tonight we will visit with Nest on Main and PillowCubes.
Nest on Main in Northport had their one year anniversary today with lots of celebrating!
If you haven’t been to Nest yet get on over there. http://www.nestonmainmarket.com
I posed for a quick picture with my rack of hand embroidered towels. I made a delivery on Thursday and already three have sold! They are indeed my best selling item so far.
I’m also wearing my branded t-shirt. So happy that that arrived in time for these promo spots.
I’m also wearing my new hat. I always try to make myself at least one thing each season. If I don’t it always becomes a case of the shoemakers children not having any shoes. I never have the time to make anything for myself. Yes this is what the colorful piece of crochet turned into.
My new friends PillowCubes http://www.PillowCubes.com have been really important to my latest round of holiday projects. I’m preparing several amigurumi projects for sale at Nest. As I’ve upgraded the quality of my materials to match the market I’m selling to I’ve longed for a quality stuffing for my animal creations. The big box brand of fiber fill that is readily available doesn’t have the certain something that I’m looking for. I recently ordered two 1 lb. sample bags of fill from PillowCubes. Two sample bags you say can’t be much. It is fiberfill stuffing and light as a feather. I’ll have plenty for at least a few projects.
I opened the bag of 100% poly stuffing and was so pleased to see how silky it felt. Not like the commercial more steel wool version I’m used to. So stuff I did. I cranked out this guy over the last three days and his special treat. No calories in that cupcake just creamy fluffy PillowCubes stuffing!
The PillowCubes 100% poly fiber fill is the best stuffing I’ve ever used! (so far! PillowCubes makes many products and I have another sample bag to tear into soon!) . This poly fill gives a very luxe feel to my creations and a bit of weight. It is a comforting weight that works well with this type of project. It keeps the shape it is stuffed without looking lumpy. The product has the certain something I need. I think it was the weight that the product has that was the top characteristic that impressed me so much. Just enough to feel rich and comforting without being heavy. I loved the silky quality of the fibers. It was truly a pleasure to dip my hand into the bag and grab just what I needed without pulling out half the bag in a big wad.
PillowCubes is a crafter’s dream. Thank you PillowCubes!!!
Thank you for stopping by the sawmill.
Have a great week!
