November 2023

New for November

Hello again! As this year begins to draw to a close, we are still in full swing making projects, welcoming in new fabric, and always looking for new inspiration.

What is inspiring you this fall?

What's New

Debbie's Purple Hiraeth Bag!

This is the Hiraeth Handbag pattern from Lavender and Twine. Materials: Deb used Vinyl fabric for the top and straps, and Clara Rose - Large Floral. GORGEOUS work Deb!




As you know, we are always beyond exited to open a fabric shipment. This time was especially exciting for our garment sewists. We heard your requests and have begun to expand our collection with linen, double gauze, lightweight t-shirt fabric and more!

Cairo Navy and Perla Mink

On the left is Cairo Navy, on the right is Perla Mink. Both are 100% linen, and OH SO LOVELY to feel and dream about.


On the left is Lennon Double Gauze - Mist, and on the right is Zola - Double Gauze Cream. Both have a lovely texture and are light, which is just perfect for summer clothing. Also, both are certified organic, which is good for you, and the planet.

Organic cotton is grown with non-GMO seeds and without synthetic pesticides nor artificial fertilizers. This can help benefit workers’ health, community access to clean water and supplies, and agricultural land lifespan.


On the left is Reese - Ribknit - Army, in the middle is Reese - Ribknit - Black, on the right is Reese - Rinknit - Blush.


This is Luxor Plum, a deliciously soft stretchy knit just waiting to be a draped shirt.




On the left is: Glacier Melange Double sided fleece - Charcoal. On the right is Glacier Fleece Double Sided Royal.

This 100% polyester fleece is made for your cozy projects this fall. Jackets, sweaters, or blankets!




Heathers Tania Jacket

We are SO proud of Heather! Heather has been taking sewing lessons with Debbie, and made her very first jacket using the Jalie Tania Coatigan. Well done, you look fantastic in your jacket!

Sewing Machine Essentials for NQ Series Brother Machines - Jaret

This class caters from the small to midsize combination sewing machines, some examples being NQ550, NQ900, NQ1600E & NQ3500D. If you don't know if this class is suitable for your machine, please give us a call.

Class fee is waived for machines purchased at That Sewing Place. If you have purchased your machine at That Sewing Place and would like to register, please contact the shop, and we will take care of registration for you.

You will receive an email closer to date of class with any class notes and other materials that you may need.

Ask the Expert!

Becca asked: "My ruler slips all the time, but I'm not a fan of the stick-on ruler grips. Do you have any other options to help?"

"Hello Becca, yes we do have a solution for you! Have you tried using Grippy?
Odif Grippy creates a non-slip surface on rulers, paper, templates, and fabrics. It is also suitable for carpets, hangers, socks, etc. Grippy is a translucent coating.

It is cleaned easily with hot water, or DK5." - The Seam Team


Name That Tool?


Mini Curve Ruler Set. So you have all sorts of curved design rulers, but do you have a set of mini curved rulers? These are so handy as they are small and great for working on small curves, and great for traveling to class or a retreat when you need to pack light.

Included are: French Curve, Hip Curve and a Mini Ruler (1x6")



Until we have an opportunity to see you again! Stay healthy, stay safe!
