About the Collection
(in stores October 2024)

"It takes a village to raise a child" is an African proverb that conveys the idea that an entire community of people must work together to provide for and positively influence children, so they can grow in a safe and healthy environment. As adults, we know that supportive communities teach children about our interconnected world.


This fabric collection was designed to uplift some of the amazing people that make up the wonderful communities we share, including medical professionals, firefighters, and police officers. It truly does take a village!

Play with, honor, and support everyone in YOUR "village" with Sew A Story quilt patterns, playful and discovery fabrics, felt dolls, 3D rescue truck bags, and so much more!

What community projects will you make with this Fabric Collection? The possibilities are endless.


See the quilt and craft patterns for the "It Takes a Village" collection. These patterns will be available in October of 2024.
