Keep Warm with Style and Spirit!

While spending the day in New York City's famous Union Square Greenmarket, we couldn't help but notice that fall is finally here! The beautiful brisk day and all the students on field trips reminded us of football games, fall dances, and, of course, school spirit.

Try out our easy patterns and our different ways to customize them for YOUR school!

Personalize with Letters!

Another great way to customize your accessories is add letters with either duplicate stitch (for knitting) or cross stitch (for crochet). These are very simple embroidery techniques that add a lot of personality to your project!
