Worldwide Quilting Day!

March 15th, 2013

Join us for Worldwide Quilting Day as we Sew for the Summit! superbuzzy is sponsoring an all-day, charity quilt sew-in! Bring your sewing machine, 2 1/2" strip rolls (about 40-2 1/2" strips or get one at superbuzzy), 3-4 pre-wound bobbins, and spools of thread. We'll show you how to quickly (in just 45 minutes to 1.5 hours!) stitch up a fun quilt top.

Feeling competitive? Race your way to the summit with a friend! Each roll will result in a 1600" strip (or approximately 133'), so the more tops we complete, the higher the summit we'll reach! Spend the day or just an hour or two whipping up one or more quilt tops to be donated to the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at the Ventura County Medical Center.

Can't join us on this date but still want to be a part of the fun? Let us know if you'd be interested in helping baste, quilt & bind the quilt tops! We'll need all the help we can get!

Halloween Amigurumi Part II!

October 4th, 2012

We shared the first installment of the adorable Halloween amigurumi patterns last week, and now we're excited to share the second two patterns. Deek and Lark join Alfo and Bixi in all of their crocheted cuteness.

Deek & Lark

Looking for the perfect yarn for amigurumi? We just added Cotton Dream to the shop, a super soft, 100% cotton worsted yarn. It comes in a fantastic rainbow of colors, and stitches up beautifully!

And, did we mention there are prizes for this Crochet-Along? To enter, make one (or more!) of the 10 monsters then post a picture of your monster on the Ella Rae Facebook Page having an adventure. Maybe it will be somewhere scary, or funny, or just having fun. Use your imagination! The "dead"-line (ohhh - spooky!) to enter is Halloween. Judges at Knitting Fever will pick their favorites!
