NEW THIS WEEK - January 13, 2016

There's nothing quite like a steaming hot cup of tea on a cool winter morning. This week's new designs are the perfect way to celebrate your favorite hot beverage!

New samplers add a colorful and eye-catching look to tea cozies, and placemats. Baby animals in teacups are sweet on kids' gear, while toile tea party designs are elegant on tea towels and tote bags.

Plus, new applique, lace, and on-the-edge designs (and a new in-the-hoop bookmark) let your creativi-tea shine!

Scroll down the page to see the new designs.
