Coffee with Stacey 10: Crafting for Baby

It’s been a busy week or two… I traveled to Stitches East and then to California for a wedding. Here’s a baby bump photo:


Yes… it’s the same dress I was wearing at the last wedding I went to!

In between, I’ve been winding kits like crazy… get ready for another exciting restocking on Friday!

Crafting for Baby

I’ve been getting questions about what I’ve been making for the baby… so I made a Coffee with Stacey episode!

If you’re wondering why I sound a little scratchy, it’s because I’m still getting over a cold. Bear with me!

To check out the patterns that I knitted, hop over to my Ravelry Project Page. All the details are there!

The shawl I’m wearing is Japanese Feather and Fan, one of my favorites!

Let me know what you think!

Suggestions? I’d love to hear them!

Video: Learn the Wiggle Stitch

How to Wiggle Stitch - video tutorial from FreshStitches and Shiny Happy World

One of my favorite patterns in Modern Baby Crochet is the Colorful Wiggle Pillow… and my publishers must agree, because they decided to put it on the cover!

It’s a fabulous pillow, and a lot of fun to make! I’ve been getting a couple of requests for a video about how to do the wiggle stitch, and so I’ve made one. Now you can make a wiggle pillow, too!

Happy stitching!


Coffee with Stacey: TNNA & Social Media with Stefanie from Stitchcraft Marketing

As we chatted about last time, I spent this weekend at TNNA, a needlework industry conference. I had so much fun!

I chatted to oodles of people and found some great new materials for the Kit Club… I’m jumping out of my skin with excitement!

Let’s chat social media!

I asked what you guys wanted to hear… and there was a request for some interviews on Coffee with Stacey! You ask, I deliver!

So, for today’s chat, check out me and Stefanie from Stitchcraft Marketing! We’re a bunch of fun!

Some more photos…

I did a photo shoot with the amazing photographer Gale Zucker. Here’s a quick photo she snapped with her phone while on the shoot:

Can you imagine how great the real photos are going to be?

I also got the chance to meet Jackie from Woolbuddies… he’s such an artist and total hero of mine!
