We can’t believe it's already here — we’re officially kicking off Season 10 of Sew Together Tuesday!
Our National Educator Teresa Coates is still on the road, and this season she’ll be traveling to quilt and fabric shops throughout and Midwest and Pacific Northwest.

To kick things off she and Hawke will be broadcasting LIVE to our Facebook and YouTube from Pins & Needles in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, where she’ll be teaching how to make a patchwork accent pillow out of Cuddle® minky plush fabric.
She’ll be using our FREE Sweet 16 Pillow pattern (click here or scroll down to download) made with six-inch squares of Cuddle®. And no matter if you want to make it scrappy or have it coordinate with your favorite Cuddle® blanket, it's a super quick-and-easy project for all experience levels.
Happy sewing, and sweet dreams!
