The Summer Sew Challenge is coming to an end, but you still have time to get in on the fun.

Back to School Tips
It’s back to school & you know what that means? More time to SEW! Seriously though surviving back to school can be a challenge! Everything from getting mentally prepared, to scheduling, organizing, shopping, meal planning, & homework can seem daunting. We found a great article from Care.com 101 back-to-school tips for kids and parents to help you get ready to stay on top of things this school year & still have time to SEW!
Featured Designer Judy Jarvi
We hope you like Judy Jarvi as much as we do! Judy Jarvi creates modern, fun designs with a traditional feel. Her new line Summer School is the sweetest and Dot our personal “Fabric Blend Master” has used these fabrics for some great precut combinations! The following Fran Pineapple Pack Summer School 2 is just one that we have to choose from. Make sure to check out all of our Summer School options from this awesome artist and illustrator.
Summer Sew Challenge
The end date for the Pineapple Fabrics Summer Sew Challenge is right around the corner. September 22nd is the last day to get your project entered. We mixed it up this year with this challenge & the results so far have been great! The entries have been more than we could hope for and look forward to seeing what is still to come. The entries have included projects using both the yard trios & panels. Jump in and get creative!
Cooking With Pineapple
Every once in a while we like to share a recipe using Pineapple. We found the perfect back-to-school recipe from delish.com the “Baja Chicken Bowls” which is super delicious and so fast to make you will have time leftover to SEW! You can find all of our favorite recipes using pineapple on our Pinterest board Cooking With Pineapple.
