We're moving! Look for Indygo Junction soon on Handicraft.com

We are so excited to share our new Pattern Review video! Amy and Betsy got together to discuss the merits of one of our best-selling patterns, the Banded Baskets. This pattern has enormous potential for customization as well as being a fantastic organization tool.

Choosing fabric to use for the Banded Baskets is fun - you can combine them in so many ways! They are a perfect canvas for showing off your favorite prints, whether small or large. Of course when we received Amy's new Vintage Made Modern fabric, we had to use it for a Banded Basket. We combined it with our Crossroads Denim to create a fun sewing organization basket.


This giveaway has ended. **Congratulations to Kristy S. who is the winner of the Banded Baskets giveaway!
