What's New

To save you time and money, we have made two Finishing Kits containing most of the supplies that you will need for the projects in the Sew Sturdy Travel Organizers class. Fabric is NOT included, so pick a fabric and then decide what color of zippers and hardware you would like. You will find more info about those kits (as well as links to the tools we recommend) at our website.

We just opened a distribution center in Spain so it will be much easier for customers in Europe to get Soft and Stable from us. We'd love to get Soft and Stable into more quilt shops in Europe, so please ask your local quilt shop to contact us at for more info. You can also buy directly from us either through our US website or by emailing us at We do not yet have our European website up and running, but it is in the works. In the meantime, retail customers can contact us at and we can have product shipped directly to you from Spain. That will be a more efficient method both in terms of time and cost.

If you need something urgently, you can email me at I will see that on a more regular basis.
