One of our favorite products: Soft Fuse Premium!

Good morning Basin Friends!

We've recently gotten a number of questions about "how do you keep the wool in place while stitching?"  There are different techniques and products for this, but we want to share our favorite with you!

This is what Stacy (and everyone else here at the Basin!) uses for all her wool projects!  It works so well and doesn't gum up the needle while you stitch, or damage the wool!  Next to the wool itself, it's probably our most used "supply" in the shop!

You can find Soft Fuse Premium on our website here.

We hope you love it as much as we do!

New Button Packs!

Greetings from the Basin!

Did you know that we love buttons, and we use them to decorate everything from the shop to our wool projects?  Most of our projects use buttons of some sort, and we are constantly adding new, exclusive packs of our custom, hand-dyed buttons.  From Hexi Door Greeters to our various Block of the Month projects, buttons had a fun punch of texture and color to your hand stitching.  Buttons range in size from our teeniest "onion" seed ones just large enough to fit a needle and thread through...to an inch or more!  Our custom packs offer exactly what you need for a kit.

Because we have heard how difficult it can be to find buttons in the size or color you want, we are now packaging packs that include one solid color of buttons, all in the same size.  

And if you don't see what you're looking for, give us a call!  We're happy to work with you on what you're looking for.

Happy stitching!

Wool Scrap Bag Sale, New Releases, Lucky Friday and more!

Greetings from the Basin! 
Lots of fun new things to share with you today!  First up-- who doesn't love a SALE?!  Our first ever wool scrap bag sale begins today!  We cut thousands of kits each month and well, sometimes our scrap bins fill to overflowing!  Many of you have asked for wool "scraps" (such a poor choice of wording, since we all know what a TREASURE it is to have those random bits just waiting for our next projects!!).  So, we've made up some wool scrap bags, and for three days only, they are on sale!  Regularly $14.95, on sale for $10, today through Sunday!  Each bag is 6" by 9" and filled with bits and pieces of the very wool we use here in our kits!  It's a fabulous start to a new collection, or to add to an existing stash!  Piece sizes vary but every piece is useable!  Check them out here:  


Once again this week, we've added new wool and fabric bundles!  We've been loving our new Japanese fabric, and these cute little wool bundles are to "DYE" for!  (Plus the names are just as cute!  "Sunshiny Day," anyone?  The sun is all that's getting us through these frigid, snowy APRIL days!)  There is also a new thread pack available, with gorgeous spring colors in the softest wool available!  So many fun things!

I know you are all anxiously awaiting this month's new releases in your favorite series!  Today we release our May Vintage Table Runner Thru the Year, as well as the May center circle in our Welcome Home Collection!

And here is the next Vintage Camper Thru the Year, as well as the most recent from the "Gathered Hearts" series, as well as "Chalk It Up!"

Saving some of the most exciting news for last...Stacy is thrilled to share a sneak peek of her NEW book from Martingale Publications, "The Best of Buttermilk Basin."  

"A smidge of vintage, a splash of folk art, a pop of color, and a pinch of patchwork - that's the recipe for creating the coveted Buttermilk Basin style. With bits of wool, cotton, and thread, Stacy West brings 17 charming projects to life, and they couldn't be easier to create. With simple-to-learn wool-applique, embroidery, and quilting techniques, even beginners can adorn home and hearth with these small quilts, pillows, penny mats, a mug rug, and other projects for seasonal decorating and everyday living. Stacy's philosophy will resonate with busy stitchers: make it fun, get it done, and enjoy the process!"


We can't wait for its release this October!  

Hope you enjoy being a part of our creative journey!  And don't forget, we LOVE to see your projects!  Please share to our Facebook page!
Also, it's LUCKY FRIDAY on our Facebook page!  Comment on Stacy's Lucky Friday post for a chance to win a May center circle kit from the Welcome Home Collection!

Last but not least, make sure and check out our site for lots of other fun new things-- including bucket loads of new wool and woven bundles, monthly series, new button packs, Stacy's Spirit of America wool and fabric line, and SEW much more!  Have a wonderful weekend!

As always, thanks for your support!
