Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
I like how this is shaping up so far. I hope that you do too because it will be added to our Etsy Shop in just a bit! #fabric #thread #sew #handmade #farmhousestyle
Thanks to this seaglass inspired egg basket, I am suddenly dreaming of a sunny day spent at the beach! #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #sew #handmade #egg #basket #etsyshop
It's no wonder that I love working with our customers to make custom baskets: you come up with the most beautiful color combinations! I love this collection of fabrics and can't wait to make another basket using them. What would you like to see me make
My morning at the sewing machine is off to a lovely beginning!
Remember that beautiful basket I was working on this weekend? Here it is finished as a Medium Egg Basket. I love this bright combination of colors, don't you?
These fabrics are coming together even better than I had hoped. I can't wait to see if the finished basket is as beautiful as the beginning!

It's snowing outside, so I am settled in at the sewing machine. Isn't this combination of fabrics in blue and yellow lovely?
Another patchwork basket is in the works.
We're in for another gloomy day outside, but my view at the sewing machine is especially lovely this morning!
The first basket of the season made up in fall colors was just added to our shop. Take a look: https://www.etsy.com/listing/200017208/small-egg-basket-0434
Part of my motivation for reimagining my studio space was to reorganize our fabric stash and find room for additional storage bins. I often tell people that we have a rainbow of fabrics on hand. Today, I thought that I would show you that fabric rainbow.
Working with these fabrics guarantees that my morning will start off on the right foot. Aren't they just lovely together? #fabric
Yesterday was a busy day. I added four baskets to our shop: two Trick or Treat Totes, a Small Egg Basket, and a Small Table Basket. Three of them are still available and ready to ship. Which one is your favorite?
It's official: I adore this new aquamarine thread. I love how it looks in the patchwork basket I am stitching together at the sewing machine right now. Do you like this bright new color as much as I do?

When I asked this morning if you would like to see a Halloween Collection added to our shop, you responded with an enthusiastic yes. I think that this is a pretty good start, don't you?
My Saturday at the sewing machine is off to a delightful beginning. I hope that you love this combination of colors and patterns as much as I do!
Remember the Medium Egg Basket I made earlier today in bold primary colors? I just added it to our shop. I love this combination of bold, bright colors. They're seasonless. I find it hard not to smile when looking at these fabrics twirled together
Working with these fabrics seems like a good way to spend a rainy Saturday. I love how this basket is coming together, don't you?
Yesterday's pink basket with gingham and polka dots was so popular that I made another one. I just added Small Egg Basket #0521 to our shop. I hope that you like this pink beauty as much as yesterday's! www.1840farm.etsy.com
Time to make up another batch of 1840 Farm Gift Certificates. These are moving so fast this holiday season that I can barely keep up!
This color combination had been very popular this week. I better make another basket!
On Thursday, I asked if you thought that I should add sets of our 1840 Farm Colonial Farmhouse Collection Placesetting Table Baskets stitched together in fall colors to our shop. It was clear from your comments that you're hoping to use these little bas
Do you remember our Farmhouse Style wine trivets from last year's holiday season? This year, we've added a length of handwrapped fabric coil to use as a drip collar. These sets make great hostess gifts and are also perfect for shipping as they are lightwe
You may have noticed that the inventory of handmade baskets in our shop has been slim lately. We're making new baskets every day, but they are selling faster than we can make them. Many of them have sold within the first five minutes and others haven't
Sewing until 2:00am means two things. First, I am going to need extra coffee this morning. More importantly, there are two beautiful new baskets to add to our shop. Stay tuned for more photos and links to the listings after I have had a cup (or two) of c
You have kept me very busy this week stitching up baskets and delivering orders to the post office. Thank you! I have made right new baskets in that past five days an only one of them is still available in our shop! Two of them were claimed before I h
I'm settled in at the sewing machine with a second cup of coffee working with one of my favorite color combinations. Monday is off to a great start!

A few of our most popular product ideas have been generated by our 1840 Farm Community. You asked for fabric trivets and coasters and they have been a hit with our customers. Then you asked for a basket that had longer handles to be carried over your wr
A rainy afternoon seems like the perfect reason to settle in at the sewing machine.
It has been a very dreary Sunday here at 1840 Farm. We haven't seen the sun all day, so I decided to stitch together a basket that includes a combination of cheery fabrics. This is one of our patchwork baskets. They are made using the pieces of hand wr
Yesterday's basket turned out even better than I had hoped. I might need to make a few more in this fabric combination for our shop, don't you think?
I have been waiting to work this fabric from our local thrift store into a basket. The fabric had the selvage tag still attached which included the name "Be Thankful". It seems like the perfect fabric in color and name to work into a table basket for a Th

I just added a preorder listing for our Apple Harvest exclusive fabric. So many of you had asked that I let you place your orders while our fabric is in production and now you can. We'll be placing another order before the end of the week and will add i
Two new items in the 1840 Farm Fall Collection were just added to our Etsy shop. I love this combination of chocolate brown, burgundy, orange, and green. Don't you think that this matching Small Table Basket and Mason Jar Vase Kit would be beautiful displ
