A Toast to Love

Free Project Instructions!

Ring the bells, light the candles, and fill the chapel! Wedding season will soon be in full swing, and with this week's new designs, creating wedding gifts that are unique, beautiful, and memorable is easier than ever.

Brides and grooms are front and center, with classic silhouette cameos, stunning damask, and light and whimsical designs all celebrating the happy couple's big day!

Remember the other family involved in the wedding, too, with sweet samplers of heartfelt sayings about the importance of home and family.

Wedding day accents are new designs with space for monogramming (but will also work beautifully on projects without letters). Stitch the bride and groom's initials inside classic symbols such as hearts and wedding rings, and in more contemporary spaces such as computers and horseshoes. Add an in-the-hoop gift tag made just for them, and make a special gift stand out even more!

A new Formal Affair alphabet has elegant lines and classy curls. It's an ideal embellishment to fill the open spaces in the wedding day accents. Alphabet letters, numbers, and punctuation are priced at only $1.00 each, or get the pack for only $19.97!
