The key to a perfect day on the water is showing up prepared. What’;s in your beach tote? We recommend a few staples. Summer means sunshine, and sunshine means skincare! Make sure to pack your favorite SPF and full coverage hat to keep the rays to a minimum. You never know where the day will take you, so pack an extra change of dry clothes in case the party goes from sea to land! To prep for your party supplies, grab a few bags of ice to keep cocktails cool.? Of course, we’;ll be packing our boat day essentials in one of our insulated canvas cooler totes!

Take on the heat with cool cocktails –; after all, boat days call for sipping and sunshine. Swap your glass for cute (and boat safe!) custom cups or make waves this summer with our personalized Styrofoam cups that are sure to float your boat! Our go-to drink this summer has to be the Bird of Paradise, from Bon Appétit. We suggest making ahead or packing all the ingredients in your boat day bag for on-the-water cocktails.

Bottoms up!

Lunch on the water is the best reservation! Create some perfect pairings to your cocktail of choice with the ultimate snacks for smooth sailing all summer long. Pre-pack your lunch favorites and make sure to keep them fresh and on ice. For munching all day long, a fruit or veggie platter is a must-have for dipping before diving. You can always go with a pre-made sandwich platter from your local grocer for a full meal, but we love the idea of packing some freshly grilled chicken kebabs!

Hi, my name is Kari Carr from New Leaf Stitches and I’m here today to tell you that I’m…partial to partial seams. As a designer and teacher I often hear people say they are intimidated by new techniques such as this. My wish is that after this project, you’ll have the confidence to tackle any project, whether the partial seam is used with a square, rectangle or hexagon. Learn how to make this variation on a Quartered Star block that includes partial seams.

Here’s another in our series of Made to Create pillows, this one by Amanda Whitlatch. Don’t you just love her steampunk design? In addition to two assigned accessories –?the BERNINA CrystalWork Tool and Circular Embroidery Attachment #83 –?Amanda also used the PaintWork and CutWork Tools.

We’re totally smitten with thehappy shade of Spice you’re seeing all over the pages of our Fall 2015 catalog. It feels warm, fresh, unexpected, and it coordinates beautifully with any neutrals you may already have in your home (like grays, beiges, blacks, and even navy!).
