It seems we're in that shift from spring to summer in Seattle!  The kids are almost out of school, high school and college graduations are happening everywhere, and it's almost Father's Day!  Let's take a moment and get creative with all the gifts we need to give and parties we need to throw in the next few weeks. 
Quick Gift Ideas for Teachers
While some parts of the country have been finished with school for a few days or weeks, here in the Puget Sound our kids aren't out until mid-June.  That means there's still time to make something crafty to celebrate the teachers in your life! Pop on over to our Pinterest board entitled Great Gifts to get some inspiration, then stop into one of our stores or shop online to get your supplies.
The Sewing Cup Cozy

It's not just for the sewists in your life!  Wouldn't this be a perfect gift for your favorite teachers?  This pattern uses just 3 fat quarters, and would be so cute on a teacher's desk, holding pens & pencils, scissors, rulers, and maybe some secret sweet treats! 
Father's Day is June 19th

Let's get out of that Father's Day gift rut!  Check out our Gifts for Dad! Pinterest board -- there are some really creative ideas out there.  I mean, there is the all-time favorite bowling shirt pattern, but this year you can pair it with something else -- maybe a seat cushion or this adorable embroidered picture (pictured at right). There are also lots of fun projects that involve men's ties, so instead of buying him a new one, how about turning his old ones into a beautiful quilt!
