Our next Sew-Along will begin in just a few days! Come join us in the CKC Sew-Alongs group, where we will all work Helen's Maxi Dress together. We can help each other along and share our progress -- and there are even prizes! For this CKC Academy sew-along, we will be focusing on the skill of shirring. If you have never shirred before, no problem! That's why we chose Helen's -- it will be a fun and rewarding pattern to learn shirring on. We want to make it easy for you to participate, so this weekend we have Helen's pattern on sale, in both Girls' and Tweens' sizes, for just $2 each! That is 75% off the regular price! What a steal! So be sure to get the pattern now while it's on sale and then come join us in the CKC Sew-Alongs Group so you will be all ready to begin on Tuesday!
We want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day Weekend! While it is unofficially the start of summer for us here in the U.S., and all the excitement that brings, please take a moment to remember the true reason of this holiday. We honor those who have selflessly served to give us our freedom!
And with that, we also want to share with you a big Memorial Day Weekend Sale! The sale will officially begin at midnight on Saturday night/Sunday morning, when we will make the code active.
