Summer Dreamin'!

Good evening from the Basin!

As the last bits of snow are melting away here in Minnesota (definitely a late spring for us this year!!), we are embracing the warmer air, longer days, and the sun shining just a bit brighter!  After a long winter we are dreaming of all things summer!

We went back and picked a few of our favorite summer pieces to showcase here!  Now is a great time to get a start on those summer projects (and soak it in quick because our Pumpkin Farm Online Event starts on Friday!!  Ha ha!)

You can find these and many more on our website under "Summer Themed Patterns and Kits."

Happy Friday, and "A Tisket A Tasket" is LIVE now!

Happy Friday from the Basin!!  Make sure and check out our Facebook page for today's "Lucky Friday" post, where you can comment for a chance to win!  This week Stacy is giving away May Day kits to some lucky followers!

And the event you've all been waiting for..."A Tisket, A Tasket" Online Event is now live!!  We were getting so many phone calls asking where it was earlier today.  Please don't fret...things can't magically pop up at 12:01 am!  ;)  There are a lot of "moving parts" that go into something like this, from having our models completed and photographed, having the bundles photographed, inventoried (because we certainly don't want you excited for something you ordered if we had actually run out of it!!!), and getting our freebies in place and uploaded patterns prepared and loaded on to the website!  We realize it's frustrating to wait when you are excited, but you know we deliver and it's always worth the wait!!  I know for sure that on many days, there are not many hours that pass from the time the last gal leaves (yes, that is nearly always STACY!!) til the next gal comes in!  We are always hoppin' here at the Basin, and anything "extra" in the week can really send us into a tailspin!  We do love these events though and it's fun coming up with extra special things to shake it up!  So, bear with us and enjoy the ride!

Pop on over to the website today, and check out the offerings!  Go to, and then "Shop Online."  Or just click here!  We have recipes, new bundles, sale items, and some super cute springtime "May Day" items!  Plus, we'll be posting a new puzzle piece each day, as well as instructions for our "sew-a-long!"  Make sure and check in each day, because they'll only be there for one day, and then the next one replaces it!

Here are a few sneak peeks...and head over to the website to see much more!

Enjoy, and don't forget to check back!

As always, thank you for your support!

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 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!
